Thirty Five & Thirty Six Weeks Pregnant


Thirty Five - Thirty Six Week Bumpdate
We are getting so close to finally meeting baby M, and I can't contain my excitement! The next few weeks I need to get my butt in gear and finish the last minute baby details. Here's an update of the past two weeks:

Size of the Baby: I went to the doctor last week on Friday and the baby was about 5lbs

Total weight gain: I've gained about 20.2lbs 

Maternity clothes: Still haven't had to buy any, but almost none of my shirts fit anymore. So when I'm not wearing a dress I am in leggings and a big T shirt

Sleep: What is sleep? I am always exhausted, yet my body wakes me up early and I wake up every hour at night. I have given up on ever feeling rested again

Movements: Her kicks are becoming less kicks and more stretching type movements, she is so strong and sometimes her movements hurt a bit. But, nothing makes me happier than seeing her little body move inside me

Symptoms: Heartburn heartburn heartburn. I feel like my throat is on fire constantly, it is starting to get so bad that I feel like I am going to puke all day

Cravings: All things sweet. Last night I actually had Jonathan run to Krispy Kreme to buy me a dozen glazed doughnut. My sweet boy

Best moments: Painting the nursery! Jonathan and I went out and got some Grey paint and spent the weekend painting the room. It looks so good, I can't wait to show you guys

Worst moments: Last week I had to go in for a growth check ultrasound, because baby M was looking to be a little small. Everything is fine, thank goodness. The doctor said she is healthy and growing good, she's just smaller because I am a small person, so I just won't ever really have big babies

  9. You are so beautiful! I usually don't have to buy maternity clothes, either. Although, with this one, jeans are getting pretty uncomfortable to button now. By the way, love love love that wine color on you.

  10. Lucky you! I'm a small person who had big babies (first was almost 10 lbs! 😳). And you are right about the sleep thing!!
