36 Week Bumpdate (Head of Romaine)
how far along: 36 Weeks
size of baby: Head of Romaine 18.5 in., 6 lb
total weight gain: 25 lbs
favorite clothes: Leggings all the time or Zach’s boxers. I have like five shirts that still fit and refuse to buy more for these last four weeks.
symptoms: Since I am swelling in my hands and feet they are SUPER itchy which is becoming very annoying. I have been hurting more often, but it is mostly from stretching and Braxton Hicks that are becoming very intense and frequent.
sleep: Aside from constant bathroom trips and the incredible struggle to get my whale-sized body out of the bed haha, I am sleeping very well.
must-haves: Water, Zach’s boxers, lotion for my itchy hands and feet, and pillows to sit comfortably.
cravings: Syrup, pancakes, french toast. I am hurting a lot and eating makes my stomach even more tight so I haven’t been thinking much about food and just eating when it is time because I haven’t even been very hungry.
baby movement: He has times throughout the day that he moves a lot and it is painful.
gender: Boy, Alexander James!
husband: Has been working so we haven’t him much, but he is so helpful. When he gets home on day shift it is close to 7 PM and the boys are relaxing and getting ready for bed so he will usually put Tom down for me. He has been cleaning up the kitchen after we eat which has been so nice. And he has just been really patient and understanding with me in my painful moodiness and rough days.
best moment this week: Zach was off for one day and it luckily was Father’s Day so we got to enjoy some family time. It was very nice, we grilled some steaks, the boys played in the rain and the pool, and then we went and got ice cream after dinner. Kara came home for one day between trips so I was so glad to see her Monday, I miss her so much. She will be home for good though in a week and half and we are all excited for that!
