How Far Along: 36 Weeks
Size of the baby: Baby R is now the size of a honeydew. He/She is 17-18 inches long and weighing in around 5.5 lbs. She/he is gaining a .5 oz a day! WOW!!
Total Weight Gain/loss: Thus far 32 lbs as of our last visit! I was so excited because last week I only gained 1 lb! Whoo whoo let's hope this week is the same!
Maternity Clothes: Just enjoying it while I can...and hoping that soon I'll be back to normal.
Gender: SURPRISE!! We are not going to find out till Baby R arrives in January!
Movement: Tons, with little room to move I am feeling it ALL. Hiccups have been out of control this past week, poor baby!
Sleep: Still sleeping like a champ between bathroom breaks. Plus since it winter break I get to take NAPS! Oh how I love NAPS!
What I miss: Being able to travel and visit family this Christmas. Also enjoying a nice adult beverage with others at holiday parties. Winston is beginning to realize this baby is about to arrive! He has been very clingy and worried as we have finished decorating and moving furniture. Poor sweet pup!
Cravings: Yogurt this week, but I settled with a double dip waffle cone, mmm
Symptoms: Swelling....Goodbye ankles and hello sausage fingers! Poor fingers I hope one day they are normal again, I miss my wedding ring like CRAZY!
Best moment this week: Checking off ALL of our TO DO list for sweet Baby R! I Love getting to hear my baby's sweet heart beat. Also I am dilated to a 1, whoo whoo we are on the right track. Tomorrow we will know more about how much longer until Baby R arrives. Plus Chris and I celebrated our first Christmas as just us.
