Ahhh, it’s springtime! And here in North Carolina, we’ve got beautiful flowers (and plenty of pollen) to prove it. Here’s what going on this week in my pregnancy… and some recent spring-y photos, too!
Weeks: 36 (4 to go!)
Maternity clothes: Nothing new! I’m just mixing and matching what I already own at this point. This little Johnny Was kimono is my new favorite thing, though.
Sleep: My lower back is starting to ache more, so sleep hasn’t been the greatest. Also, I’m getting up at least twice every night to use the bathroom.
Miss anything? As adorable as the little kicks and rolls are, they can also be kind of annoying. Getting punched in the bladder isn’t the greatest feeling. I guess what I’m trying to say is… I think I’ll be pretty happy to no longer be housing another human.
Movement: Baby’s hiccups are less frequent, but little twitches and giant rolls are happening more. The twitches sometimes remind me of the shakes that dogs do after they’ve come in from the rain! Like, what is he doing in there?!
Food cravings: I’ve been eating cereal every day again. Special K Vanilla Almond, baby!
Symptoms: Heartburn almost every night. Backaches. Occasional dizziness. Fatigue. Breakouts.
Belly button: It’s an innie, but kind of looks like an outtie through clothing! Belly buttons are weird.
Emotions: Still no grand emotional breakdowns. Richard, be afraid. Be very afraid.
Best moment this week: This was my last full week at work! The bigger I get, the more uncomfortable I get being on my feet for long periods of time, so I think I picked a great time to start tapering off at work. Also, the carseat is officially installed! We’re ready for you, little baby!
Looking forward to: Family time this weekend, finishing my hospital bag, and a final prenatal massage!
