Pregnancy Update: 36 weeks

 BabyFetus Ticker

How far along? 35 weeks 5 days. It's hard to believe he'll be full term in just over a week!

Weight gain/loss: No idea. I'm really trying not to worry about it at this point.

Feeling:  Defeated? I know that's depressing, but being pregnant with a toddler is hard. Everything hurts and by the time she goes to bed, I am exhausted. Several nights this week I've spent all evening in bed due to frequent and slightly painful braxton hicks contractions. With Grace, I took the time I needed to rest during the day, but now I don't often have that option. I can't get up and down with her anymore, even getting off of the couch is a challenge. I love the end result of pregnancy, but I must admit that I don't really like being pregnant.

Maternity clothes? Yes, although most of my maternity shirts are too short now.

Sleep: Some nights are better than others. Grace is finally starting to sleep through the night again but I'm still having some insomnia and of course I have to get up multiple times a night to use the restroom.

Food cravings: Chipotle.

Gender: Boy.

Movement?  He's slowed down a lot in the past week. His active times are getting shorter and more infrequent. He's run out of room so I don't feel a lot of big kicks any more, just nudges.

What I miss? Being able to walk without feeling like he's going to fall out.

Best moment this week: Getting some amazing deals at a consignment sale last night and spending lots of great family time with Mike and Grace this past weekend!

What I'm looking forward to: Hopefully a date night with Mike this weekend.

Next Appointment: Next Thursday. Only a couple of more appointments left!
