How Far Along: 36 weeks!
How Big is Baby: the size of a large cantaloupe (19 to 22 inches, 6 lbs)
Sleep: soundly- with the exception of 3 – 4 bathroom breaks a night J
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: still only craving ice cream!
Symptoms: too many to list. The only new thing I have noticed is that my neck is starting to darken as well just like it did last time.
Movement: yep- rolling and pushing all over my belly. This is seriously the best thing about pregnancy and the thing I will miss the most. I am almost positive that she is head down and that I am feeling her booty, legs and feet. Sometimes she pushes so hard on my bladder, I have a hard time distinguishing if I really have to go to the bathroom or if it is just pressure from her.
What I am worrying about: not too much, which is very surprising.
What I am loving: being pregnant. Seriously, I was out of sorts last week. I haven’t had a break down or crying fest in a week now which is a huge accomplishment. Also, the comments have slowed down a bit- so my self esteem is still intact. This is probably the last time I will be pregnant so I am just trying to soak it all in- the good, the bad and the ugly.
What I am looking forward too: the weekend (date with my hubby, maternity pics and having Kelli and Cecil over), quarter close being over, holiday next week. Also, this is a ways off, but I have been dreaming of a sushi dinner with a big glass of wine and sleeping on my tummy again!
Best Moment of the week: great news at work! Also, finding out I am already 1 fingertip dilated. I know some people would not be that excited about 1 fingertip, but last time it took me two trips to the hospital for prevacid and one dose of cervi(something) to be one fingertip dilated. I am really hoping my body will go into labor by itself this time!
