Pregnancy Update #7

How far are we: 36 weeks and 2 days! A little less than 4 weeks to go!

How big is baby: Connor is still in the 17.2- to 18.7-inch and 4.2- to 5.8-pound range and continues to beef up. I think he must be getting bigger because I am!

Total weight gain: 25 pounds total. Just 1 pound up from last week. I still weigh less than I did in June 2011. I only have 1.2 pounds to go to be at the same weight I was before I started MFP and Zumba. I'm sure at my next appointment, I will have gained that plus more!

Maternity clothes: All maternity. I have some cardigans and sweatshirts I can wear that are part of my "normal" wardrobe. I can still wear a lot of my tank tops to sleep in, which is a most because I'm so dang hot at night! 

Stretch marks: NONE! And let's hope that in the next 3+ weeks, it stays that way!

Movement: He is a mover. Nothing too hard to handle. He is most active in the evening, right before I fall asleep.

Sleep: I've been doing okay. I tend to get up 2-3 times a night to potty. I wake up throughout the night a lot but it's not because Connor is keeping me awake. I'm not up stressing over labor, delivery or parenthood. I'm just a much lighter sleeper than I used to be. 

Best moment this week: Getting a few last minute things for his room and getting the car seat and stroller. Now, to have the car seat install! Thanks Hubby!

Food cravings: None! I wasn't "blessed" with any of those in this pregnancy. Maybe that's a good thing. I do enjoy my water, though. I can't seem to get enough.

Labor signs: None and I don't feel any closer to having him. I feel as if he is tucked in there, nice and tight. My due date is 10/24 and I would be okay with having him on 10/19, 10/24 or 10/30. Those dates have special meaning to us.

Belly button in or out: In. I can't be that lucky, right?? Let's hope it stays in for the time being. 

What I miss: Tennis shoes! If I wear anything other than flip flops or sandals, I get sock lines and my feet swell a little.

What I'm looking forward to: James and I are going to a pumpkin patch with the Underwood's next weekend and I'm looking forward to one last outing with Macie Jane.


  1. My birthday is on the 23rd so you can have him then too. ;)

  2. It's getting SO close! I think you should have him on 10/22, that's Kristian's birthday :)
