36 Weeks - Baby #2



How far along: 36 weeks, 4 days

Total weight gain: around 32 lbs.

Maternity Clothes: Yep. 

Stretch Marks: Not yet

Sleep:  I'm waking up A LOT to go to the bathroom. At least 5 times, sometimes closer to 10 times.

Best moment this week: The sign I ordered for the hospital door came in :) It's adorable! I'm not posting a picture until Leah arrives though.

Movement: She seriously feels huge in my stomach.  She was moving a lot last night and was really high into my ribs. I much prefer her to hang out low.

Food cravings: Mexican food! I want nachos every day. Salsarita's is my new fav -
still the same. I seriously want to eat nachos every single day. I'm also still loving ├ęclairs as often as I can get one.

Anything making you queasy: Nothing in particular. Just have nausea if I skip my Diclegis. I've tried skipping it a few times and the nausea really comes back strong. I'm not throwing up though when I skip a few days.

Have you started to show yet:  Yep.  I'm huge. It totally looks like there's a basketball in there. I'm carrying far out front this time. I am LOVING how I am carrying with #2.  No swelling, minimal weight gain in my face, etc.  Even my maternity shirts are too short for me now though.

Gender prediction:  It's a girl! Leah Brooke.

Labor signs:  At my appointment last week I as 1/4 of a centimeter dilated (so nothing haha). Some cramps, but nothing to make me think labor is imminent. I'm thinking she will be close to 40 weeks. 

Belly Button:  It's completely flat now.

Wedding Rings:  Off. I could probably get away with wearing it some days since I'm barely swelling, but it's just easier not to have to worry about keeping up with it if my fingers start swelling.

Happy or Moody:  Seriously moody. I'm awful at work.

Weekly Wisdom:  Pack your bags early! You never know what will happen in the 3rd trimester.

Milestones: The room is 100% done. Her closet and drawers are stocked full of clothes. I have the hospital bag packed for me and baby and the hospital door sign is ready to go. I washed all of the car seat parts and will install it this week. I got confirmation last week that she is head down (yay!) Now just to cross my fingers and hope she isn't posterior once she drops during labor.

Looking forward to: Finished up with work so that I can comfortably go into labor and maternity leave with no work stress. We are in the middle of our financial audit and I REALLY need to get that finished before labor starts.
