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.
