36 Week Pregnancy Update

Thursday, July 14, 2016

You know it's getting close to due date when you set up your bassinet and infant car seat (see the fun on my snap, vero_var). Not sure if we did this too early but it was basically the last things we needed to do and just did it to get it done and ready. The reality is that you just don't really know when baby will come. 
Here's a quick 36 week update:
How far along:
36 Weeks 

Baby is the size of a:

Weight gain: 
30 lbs

Maternity clothes:
Shorts are starting to fit tight on the belly and thighs. Jeans fit ok on the thighs but tight on the belly, and it's too hot to wear jeans. Dresses are my best bet right now. 

I started to feel uncomfortable during sleep around 34 weeks along. Every time I get up in the morning I feel this huge weight on my lower abdomen/pelvic area. Waking up once or twice to use the bathroom, but am able to fall back asleep pretty easily. I'm wide awake between 5-7, it varies from day to day!

Miss anything:
I miss eating Ceaser salads, cold cuts and wearing my old clothes. I also miss being able to paint my nails appropriately. Went for a pedicure yesterday because it is just impossible! 

There is so much movement! Lucas moves all day everyday and it has started to hurt sometimes. The other day he was moving so much I couldn't help but cry happy tears. It makes me so happy to feel him and to know he's coming so soon. 

No crazy cravings, didn't have many really the whole pregnancy. I can't stay away from bread and watermelon these days. I'm trying to stick with the watermelon over the bread, for obvious reasons. 

Labor signs: 
None yet. 

I have had no sickness, nor nausea. It's been a pretty healthy and blessed pregnancy. 

Looking forward to:
Wearing normal clothes, not needing Joses help for getting up sometimes, not being so out of breath so much and holding Lucas in my arms and never letting go. 

That's it for an update, we are vlogging more now that I am home waiting for baby. Go follow our vlog channel! Yesterday, I changed the name and added a new channel banner, let me know what you think!
