36 Weeks

How far along:  36 weeks. Holy crap y'all (sidenote: I so wish I was southern so I could legit say y'all. I guess I'll just have to stick with Mainah phrases, like "wicked") at the end of this week we will have reached full term. whenthehelldidthathappen?!?!?!

How big is baby?: I think my preggers app is broken, still says the size of a large cantaloupe... however the stats have changed and they say she is 19-22 inches and about 6 pounds... which I'm betting is a lie cause this little peanut is not 6 pounds yet. I'm hoping at my next appointment they can give me a better idea of how big she is. 

Total weight gain: This week I gained about 1 1/2 pounds. Bringing me to a grand total of (gulp) 30 pounds. OMGeez. I mean, I knew it was coming... but actually seeing that number on the scale made a little part of me die.

Maternity clothes: I has nothing!!! Seriously, this week it's like I've outgrown everything I own. Thank god it was the last week of school because I'm officially out of dress tops that are long enough. The next 4 weeks shall consist of t-shirts (which may be stolen from Drew), tank tops and baggy shorts. I, shall be a bum :) 

Best moment of the week:
 Last day of school Thursday. Though I feel awful about not working this summer, I'm finally going to be able to get some real rest and put my feet up. 

Food cravings: Still thirsty a lot. I've been craving a lot of sweets this week... which I may or may not have indulged in.

Food aversions: chicken is still nasty to me. 

Symptoms: More of the usual. A couple of nasty charley horses this week. I only get them early, early in the morning and they snap me out of sleep really painfully. Wednesday night I had this funky shooting pain in my right side. It felt like someone was stabbing me in the lungs and every time I tried to breathe it was way worse. After some stretching (and crying) the pain went away. Not to get TMI on y'all, but this week I've had some sharp, shooting pain in my crotch. It mostly happens when I'm on my feet too much. Speaking of which. Holy swollen-ness. My legs have been nasty swollen. My fingers look huge (I'm not even attempting to wear my rings now... I'm too afraid they'll get stuck and I'll have to get them cut off). Drew claims my face doesn't look swollen, but I feel like it is. 

Movement: Still lots of hiccups. What does that mean for when she's born? Do babies get upset when they have the hiccups? I hope not! I'm feeling fewer and fewer kicks, but way more bulges and nudges as she attempts to create space for herself. Just thinking about her running out of room in there makes me feel claustrophobic.  

Gender: A little girl. Though a reader commented on my what to pack post and recommended that I bring a unisex outfit to the hospital... just in case (gulp) However, we've seen Fynn twice on ultrasound and been adamantly assured that she is a she... but I still second third-guess a little. 

What I'm looking forward to: Being full term next Saturday. And then GETTING THIS BABY OUTTTTTTTT 

What I miss: Alcohol. An no, I'm not a big drinker. But there's something about an ice cold margarita or daiquiri that really makes it feel like summer. I know, I know, I could have a virgin one... but it's just not the same!

Next appointment: Next Friday!

  1. You look fantastic for being so close to full term! I was all sorts of puffy and gross by this point. I'm a new follower from the GFC blog hop, I hope you'll check out my blog and follow back if you like it. It's all about the fun times of raising my one year old daughter!
