36 Weeks

Weight Gain: 37 pounds. 

Stretch Marks: The same, unless my belly is just too big to see them on the underside. 

Movement: All the time. 

Cravings: Sweets and fruits. Same as usual. 

Sleep: I've been waking up more throughout the night and having a hard time falling asleep. Last night was an exception, I could not keep my eyes open and fell asleep while working on this blog post. 

Best moment this week: It's been a good one! Last night, I got the text that my friend Jessica had her baby boy!! I had my 36 week appointment and I am 2cm dilated and 30% effaced...making progress. And I've had a lot more energy, I have been going non-stop for the last few days!

Gender: Boy!

Labor signs: Oh boy, yes. I thought yesterday might have been the day. First, TMI, but it's part of pregnancy updates, I lost part of my mucus plug yesterday afternoon. By later in the evening I was having regular contractions. And....then they slowed down. I'm okay with that, I just figure they are making more progress happen and will make labor easier when it comes!

Maternity clothes: Of course. 

What I miss: Being able to bend over and pick something up with ease. 

What I'm looking forward to: The baby shower/bbq our friends are throwing us tomorrow. I can't wait to celebrate this baby with our family and friends.

  1. I'm 38 1/2 weeks and haven't been checked yet?! weird. I totally miss being able to bend over too...dropping things is the worst!

  2. I wasn't checked at all until I had been in labor for 6 hours and started trying to push (I was only at 5cm).

    I am so excited to see photos of the new babe, sounds like he will be here soon!

  3. Oh my goodness, MP and contractions already?! Did you go early with your first too? I wouldn't know what to do if I went into labor before 39 weeks, ha! But it's right around the corner for you now! :):)
