Bumpdates 36 weeks

How far along: 36 weeks

Baby's size: Size of a large cantaloupe

Developing this week:  All your systems are ready and developed....just growing stronger especially your lungs...getting cramped in there

Weight gain: 27 lbs 

Sleep:  Slept pretty good...taken a few naps over the weekend...wake up needing to use the bathroom and with sore hips but all in all sleeping better

Maternity Clothes: Majority yes!

Food cravings: fruit and chocolate

Food aversions: nothing new, enjoying salads again!

Symptoms I have: Lots of lots of Braxton Hicks, severe femoral pain on the right side with some sciatic nerve pain on the left...went to the chiropractor and it seems to be a little better...thankful for no back pain this pregnancy so far...

Doctor’s Appointment:  every week now...crazy right?! where did the time go....we had a sonogram to check size and position....you were measuring 35.5 weeks so a little small and at 5lbs 10oz (30%ile) down from the 60th...hey I'll take it...everything is still looking good for a Vbac but C-section is scheduled for August 7th at 7:30 am if you don't arrive by then.... already 2 cm dilated and 80% effaced....come Augusy 1st you can come any day:) I'd like 2 more weeks but am ready whenever you are:) My fluid level was a little low so we will have a sonogram next week to just make sure all is well!! And check your size and position!!

Movement: You basically just spin on your head these days....your feet are ususally on the left side but occasionally on the right..you were so active during the sonogram we couldn't get any pictures...you also decided not to let us see your face just like sister did...you covered your face with your hands the whole time silly boy....can't wait to kiss those sweet cheeks.

Belly Button: getting flatter and less outie strangely as I get bigger...

Gender: Still a boy

Best moment of the week: Getting to see you kicking around on the sonogram and seeing progress that you will be making your debut sooner than later...if you follow sissy at all you will be here in less than 2 weeks but we will see...

What I’m looking forward to: meeting you and kissing those sweet cheeks
