Baby Update #8

How far along: 36 weeks, measuring 37 weeks

Baby Bump: You better believe it. And that bump has spread to my rear end and thighs. Weird, because I thought a baby grew in my belly? 🙂

Maternity Clothes: Absolutely.

Total Weight Gain: 24 lbs. I’m REALLY starting to pack on the pounds these last few weeks. I blame it on my swollen feet.

Cravings: Really really really cold milk and ice. Those are separate cravings. Don’t you dare give me a glass of milk with ice in it. That’s disgusting. I think this hot weather is why I just want something cold in my mouth.

Food that nearly makes me vomit when I think about it: Anything that may cause indigestion…which is basically everything.

Symptoms: Oh goodness…indigestion, swelling feet, lower ab pressure (he’s VERY head down), extreme fatigue, not sleeping AT ALL, and a HORRIBLE, stinging, constant pain in my upper right rib cage that wraps around to my back.

Sleep: Don’t even mention this word around me. It doesn’t happen.

Movement: Some very strong nudges from his limbs. Not a lot of kicking going on. HE’S OUT OF ROOM!!!

Gender: It’s a boy! Scott is his name.

Belly button in or out: Half and half. That’s gross to me. I don’t know why.

What I miss: SLEEP and getting through the day with enough energy to play with Lily.

Best Moment: His room is finally DONE! Minus his name on the wall above the crib.

Biggest Challenge: Getting through the day on very little sleep. I am so very blessed that Brent works from home. Although he doesn’t actually work at home all day every day, it’s nice to have him around when he is home. He is such a selfless husband/father and works his rear end off to provide for us and also keep up with his demanding wife and daughter :). He never ever complains.
