Went to the doctor for my weekly check on Wednesday. Baby C's heart rate is good, 144bpm. He is measuring right up to my rib cage, which I have already been noticing, he tends to get them stuck up there and it can be quite painful when trying to sleep. I just can't seem to stretch out enough to get him out of there! Everything looks good and he said I shouldn't have a problem working up until my due date. Other than that, no progress. Baby C is camping out up there having a good ol' time.
How far along? 36 weeks (and two days, but who is counting??)
Maternity clothes?: Yup. Also, I am digging the oversize shirts that I change into as soon as I get home from work.
Sleep: Horrible. Waking up with heartburn, to pee, or to try and stretch out from those feet stuck in my ribs.
Cravings: Nothing out of the norm.
Best moment this week: Having my final shower with family and friends. They really spoiled me, and it was so much fun!
Movement: He rolls around in there quite a bit.
Gender: All boy.
Labor Signs: None that I can tell. Not even any Braxton Hicks.
Belly Button in or out? Barely in, but pointing out enough at the top that people think it has "popped".
What I miss: Walking normal. Non-heartburn days. Days when I used to NOT get stared at all the time.
Weekly Wisdom: Always, always, always have zantac on hand! And be prepared for the "oh! aren't you about to pop!" comments and just about everyone no matter where you are; the gym, doctors' office, grocery store to ask you "when are you due?" and strike up a conversation. :)
Milestones: Weekly doctors appointments! That means we are getting there!!
Favorite Moments: shower thrown by Chris' co-workers, shower thrown by my besties.
So, here is my 35 week picture
and 36 weeks.
