With the arrival of the last of the baby purchases, we were finally able to set up the crib. This was the last thing that was nagging at me and I finally feel fully prepared to bring a baby home. After we got it all set up, my husband turned to me and said "Wow. Makes it feel so much more real." He's right; it does!
How far along? 36 weeks + 6 days
Total weight gain: 24 lbs
Exercise: Still going strong with prenatal yoga and the elliptical. Though I can't say I'm burning a ton of calories on the elliptical. I'm pretty slow and don't even break a sweat- I'm out of breath before that can happen. Lol
Stretch marks: None that I can tell.
Maternity clothes: Yup! Have I mentioned that maternity leggings are awesome?
Belly button in or out? It's an outie now. So strange! Wedding rings on or off? Off. Now that I'm not working, I rarely wear them (they get in the way of cooking and housework). I am able to still get them on, but it's a snug fit.
Sleep: I miss sleep. It takes me 10 mins just to adjust my pillows. By then I usually have to pee again. Then all night I toss and turn trying to find a comfortable position. Naps during the day have been helpful. I figure this is just preparation for when the baby arrives.
Food cravings: Donuts! I feel bad for the nutrition for the baby, but I have completely given into my unhealthy cravings. 😁
Symptoms: Just the usual- heart burn, not sleeping, occasional Braxton Hicks contractions.
Movement: Baby is still having a party in there. Still likes to put his feet in my ribs. :)
Best moment this week: I've been hanging out with friends a lot lately with is always fun.
