How Far Along: 36 weeksSize of Baby: 22 inches long and about 6.5 lbs, about the size of a watermelon
Maternity Clothes: yes! but i'm much more comfortable in just lounge pants and Tim's shirts. If i have to wear jeans, I have to make sure Tim is home to help me put them on because I can't get them on since Robby is so low and I can't lift my legs high enough to get them in the leg holes!! Stretchy pants are my friend!
Gender: precious boy!
Movement: His movements are slower now. Instead of him kicking, he just sticks his foot out. I can move it around a little and play with him! It's so sweet! Usually he will stop when Tim puts his hand on me, but the past few days he has kept it up so Tim has felt him.
Sleep: It's usually an every other night kind of thing on my sleep. One night I will sleep so well and the next I won't be able to get comfortable and will have to go to the couch.
Symptoms: I have reached the puffy face stage. The 36 week picture above was taken on Thursday night and when we took pictures on Christmas day, my face was HUGE! I was amazed at the change in such a short amount of time. I'm also suffering from carpel tunnel. It's occurring in both hands but lingering effects are only in my left hand. I usually wake up every 30-45 minutes at night with one or both of my hands asleep but i haven't had feeling in 3 of my fingers on my left hand for about 4 or 5 days now. I will be very glad to get that back!
Food Cravings/Aversions: I will eat anything. I am going to miss not having to worry about the consequences of eating whatever I want! It will be quite to shock to transition back to my healthier diet.
What I am Looking Forward To: My next appointment! At my last one I was already beginning to progress a little, so I can't wait to see if I have any further! Also, this week, I plan on getting the carseat installed in my car and inspected by TxDOT. I have a few more loads of baby clothes to wash up, but after that's done we are literally just waiting for him to arrive!
