(Sorry about the terrible picture quality. I ran out of time to get this 36 week post up because I am 37 weeks tomorrow (full term, woot-woot!!!). I also had to rely on Damien to be my photographer. He did his best and I am thankful for his willingness! Love you Damien! I also had NO time to edit or anything like that)
Total weight gain: 10lbs
Maternity clothes? Yes.Tops only. I am still wearing my regular pants.
Stretch marks? No new ones in the past two weeks. My generic Cocoa Butter lotion is doing a great job.
Sleep: Not good at all! I am sleeping horribly. I hope this changes because I'd really appreciate a good night sleep at this point.
Best moment this week: Amar'e helping me rub lotion on my belly every night. She also kisses my belly often and seems really excited for the baby to arrive. Damien is really excited too!
Miss anything? Being able to put socks and shoes on without almost dying in the process. Now that it is cooler out, (especially in the mornings when going to work) I have to put shoes on that aren't sandals (boots). This is not easy to do with this belly in the way.
Movement: Tons of movement! I love to watch it in a mirror. It's intense at times.
Food cravings (this will be an ongoing list I will add to) : Fruits and vegetables,lemons,tomatoes,nachos,chocolate chip cookies, salt, this chickpea concoction that Andrew whipped up one day for lunch, Brussels sprouts lot and lot of brussels sprouts, caramelized onions, Mangos,Watermelon, cucumber and avocado rolls, water with lemon. Salad and corn on the cob, pasta, salsa, beans and yellow rice, Kale, green juice.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not queasy anymore...lets keep it that way.
Gender: We will not be finding out the gender until the day the baby arrives. I say boy.
Symptoms: Pelvic region soreness.
Belly button in or out? In but flattened right out.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Pretty happy these past couple of weeks. I am really starting to get excited about having this baby. I have mixed emotions on giving birth again, but I am trying to keep my thoughts positive.
Looking forward to: My last day of work, which will be October 18th. During the time between my last day of work and the arrival of the baby I am going to work on crocheting a beautiful blanket for him/her. I have to finish the one I started for Amar'e first. I'm also going to be trying to get everything in order for this baby's arrival. I just cant seem to find the time to do it, start to finish, without a million and half interruptions.
