Size of the Baby: At my 36 week doctor appointment they guessed that she was weighing 7 pounds. If that's correct, we are definitely going to have a chunker on our hands if she makes it to 40 weeks. According to my iPhone app, she is the size of a watermelon, and certainly feels like it.
Best Moment of the Week: Will officially be Friday, my last day of work (if I can make it.) As if I wasn't having enough trouble trying to breathe with chubby baby feet pushing on my lungs and diaphram, I came down with a cold over the weekend :-/
Maternity Clothes: Getting dressed for work is the worst part. I can fit in one pair of maternity jeans that are no longer comfortable. All I really want to be wearing is Brandon's pajama bottoms and a tank top.
Stretch marks: Still no stretch marks...but I realize they could pop up at anytime.... :-/
Weight gain: I actually lost about three pounds at my last appointment, and I have no idea how with all the sweets I've been inhaling. I think I'm just about out of room for food as well. This brings my total weight gain to around 34ish pounds, give or take.
Labor Signs: I have been having Braxton Hicks contractions pretty consistently the last week. My whole stomach will get rock hard and stay that way for about 20 seconds or so and then it will relax. I think I've actually been having them for awhile now, but I mistakenly thought it was the baby stretching inside that was making everything so hard and tight.
What I am looking forward to: Sleeping on my stomach! Being able to roll over from side to side without pain and grunting and so much effort. Being able to sleep without waking up 10 times to pee. Being able to sleep without my hands going numb. Although I realize once she comes, I might not be getting much sleep either haha. I also look forward to wearing my wedding ring again. But mostly I look forward to meeting our little one. Brandon set up her swing and it's just sitting in the corner of our family room. I keep looking at it and wanting her to be in it. Here's hoping she decides to come a little bit early :-)
