36wk 36wks

How Far Along: 79 36 weeks

Total Weight Gained: 16lbs – I gained 2 pounds last week.

Maternity Clothes: I still wear my t-shirts at home but they don’t cover the belly. I would rather wear the same pair of leggings every single day than wear maternity jeans. They drive me crazy for some reason.

Sleep: I’m exhausted by the end of the day. I probably won’t survive motherhood. I tend to turn into the pregnant biotch from hell when I’m running on a lack of sleep!

Best Moment of the Week: I’m really trying to think of a fabulous moment this week but let’s be honest, I’m 27 months pregnant and over it. 

Food Cravings: Anything sweet. And lots and lots of water. I’m not nearly as hungry as I have been. I’m pretty sure I’m going to pop out a 10lb baby. I have no room left for food!! 

Food Aversions: Eggs. And my fridge smells like some kind of green vegetable and I cannot get rid of the smell!! I’ve thrown everything away! Makes me want to puke!!

Symptoms: I hurt. My back hurts. More than anything….my vag hurts. Apparently it has to stretch for the baby to come out. Who knew?! You’d think I would have researched this a little more before I got knocked up. You live and you learn right?!

JP’s Symptoms: I’m pretty sure that Berty does not understand that I’ve been pregnant for what feels like years. I need to just suck it up and deal with it for the next 3 weeks. Ummm yeah. Ok.

Movement: She’s so low. I feel her feet in my ribs and her head-? on my bladder. When she moves I may or may not pee on myself. But just a little!  

Gender: Girl – Turner McCartney

What I miss: Normal clothes. Normal boobs – you know boobs that don’t leak. I’m not going to know what to do when I can bend over!

What I'm looking forward to: Ummm….her birth. But not the labor part. Just all the parts after that!

Weekly Wisdom: People who tell you your baby will come when she is ready need to be punched in the face. You think I don’t know she’ll come when she’s ready?! No sh*t! I’m ready now and I realize that’s selfish. Ask me if I care.

Milestones: As of today there are 25 days till my due date. It doesn’t sound like a long time but it feels like forever!

I had my doctor’s appointment yesterday. I’m still only 1cm dilated and about 70% effaced. I’m praying for more progress by next Monday. I don’t want to be induced but let’s be real. If I make it to my due date, TM is being kicked out!

I think you look absolutely fabulous! I'm excited for you--- only a couple more weeks!! I adore your sense of humor and I know you are an amazing lady of amazing strength and grace. You are going to be the perfect role model for your daughter to look up to. She's an extremely lucky girl!

I just found your blog and its great! You look beautiful and I hope that the baby comes soon. I've had enough pregnant friends to know that you can tend to forget how excited you are in the third trimester...hurts if you move and even if you don't!
