At my 35 week appointment(I now go once a week) her heart beat was strong, and I’m starting to dilate. I felt her drop a bit this week which was a relief to my ribs. I can also breathe a lot easier.
During this week I started getting a lot more uncomfortable and started having A LOT more painful contractions. I don’t mind them because I know each one gets me closer to meeting my sweet baby girl. I’m still staying active and working out each day but it’s not very intense ha!
I’ve gotten heart burn again every so often, but just at random times. At night I just can’t seem to turn my brain off. I just get so excited thinking about how close I am and it feels like Christmas Eve every night! Our whole family has a cold too, so we have to get over that before she makes her debut!
At 36 weeks baby girl is about 6 lbs and gaining about an ounce a day. All of her vital organs are developed, and now she’s working on some nice chubby cheeks=)
At my 36 week appointment she was measuring great(I always worry ha) and I’ve dilated more. I’m hoping to make it to Thanksgiving to enjoy time with family, but we would be happy whenever she decides to come.
Working out is still something I try and do 6 days a week. It’s not much, usually 30-40 min walking/jog or 20 min weights. Getting that bump moving is HARD hahah
As my belly gets bigger Lily has become more curious. We tell her there’s a baby in there, but she’s only 15 months, so I’m not sure what she understands. She points at it, pats it, and gives it hugs and kisses. I think when the baby comes it will be a hard adjustment for all of us, but mostly Lily. I met the sweetest mom at Costco today after my appt. She has 2 girls about 16 months apart and she said it was/is so so fun. I love when nice people stop and give encouraging words. So any more tips on helping with the transition are appreciated!
This past week so many friends and family have surprised me with little girls night/day showers. Baby girl has been spoiled and we definitely have everything we need. Thank you everyone!!
