Baby Hibbs is officially considered “full term” now!! I have been waiting to reach this milestone for 9 months – so exciting!
I got to spend time with my best friend’s new baby this week, and it made me SO antsy to have our little baby in my arms!! I love that they already got to snuggle
Some days, I feel like my body is betraying me. I can’t bend certain ways, I get so frustrated when I drop something because it means I have to bend down to pick it up…*sigh*. Thankfully I have a very sweet husband who is willing to work with me and help me with the never ending list of projects I have in my head…
I didn’t think I was going to go through a “nesting phase” because I basically nest all the time – haha! HOWEVER, I just realized today that I am nesting with PLANTS! Oh my word, I have such a black thumb but I wake up in the middle of the night thinking about where I’m going to put the next plants I buy. It’s a little bit of a problem now – haha! Here’s just a few I planted over the last 2 days…
How far along? 36 weeks
Maternity clothes? absolutely! Still able to wear some large non-maternity tops, but always wearing maternity bottoms.
Sleep: Waking up more to go to the bathroom = very interrupted sleep this week
Best moment of the week: Feeling this baby moving constantly. Wow, he/she is getting BIG and it hurts when he/she moves, but it’s also so reassuring because I know they’re doing well!
Miss anything? I miss being pain free – and having feet that don’t look like giant marshmallows
Movement: Yes! Baby is moving SO MUCH and getting SO STRONG!
Food cravings: FRUIT. All the time. And sweets in general!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Gender prediction: When we saw the quickest glimpse of the baby’s face during our 3D u/s (he/she was not cooperative, and kept putting their hands in front of their face!!) I said, “That is absolutely a boy!” We’ll see if I’m right – hubby’s not quite convinced
Labor signs: Nope – but my non-stress tests show that I’m having “baby contractions” right now, which is totally normal for this stage of my pregnancy.
Symptoms: Verrrrry swollen. Heartburn. Peeing all. the. time.
Belly button in or out? In – but it’s very shallow!!
Happy or moody most of the time? This week has been generally happy- but I had a total breakdown related to my diabetes crap earlier this week
Looking forward to: hopefully finishing the nursery this week!! (I said this last week, but I REALLY mean it this time- haha!)
