Week 36

How in the world am I already 36 weeks? Can someone please explain to me how time works? I feel like I was just writing that I was pregnant! 

I just got up and took this picture. Don't judge me. If I'm not going anywhere then I am wearing pjs.  :)

How far along?: 36 weeks and 3 days. 

Size of the baby?: My app says a watermelon. 19-22 inches and 6.5 lbs. Considering she was 6 lb 6 ounces at 34 weeks I would say she's pushing 8 pounds now. I go for an ultrasound TOMORROW  to see if she has flipped. Please pray for good news :) 

Sleep?: I am tired often. And now that I stopped taking naps (again) I usually sleep through the night with just getting up once or twice to go to the bathroom. I can't complain about the sleep department because I know a lot of women have it worst than me. It just takes me a bit to get my hips comfortable to actually sleep but once I'm asleep I'm good.

Best moment this week?: The girls I volunteer with threw me a shower today at "work." They were so sweet and have been listening to my cravings and they made me a cheesecake and ordered us lunch from Five Guys. I LOVE LOVE LOVE their cheeseburgers. I was in happy pregnant lady heaven today.

Miss anything?: Nope.

Bed Rest?: I have put myself on "not working out anymore" rest. I will still take Baxter for our short walks (a half of a mile to a full mile) but with my hip hurting as much as it is I don't want to aggravate it anymore than necessary. I only have around 17 days left so I think I deserve the break. I just don't won't to hurt it even more and then have to deal with that in labor. 

Limitations?: Not working out due to hip pain, can't bend over due to feeling like I'm about to pee myself, bathtubs are no longer comfortable. Is that a limitation?

Pregnancy Symptoms?: Back and hip pain, headaches... occasional, not constant so I'm happy about that, pressure in my lower tummy.

Wedding rings?: On

Looking forward to?: Seeing her tomorrow!! My mom is coming with me and this is the first ultrasound she's going to (for Elouise) so I'm excited for her to see her. My mom ADORES her grandchildren and we are both excited. It will be fun. And I'm excited for our family get together to honor Ellie on Sunday :) 


  1. Crossing my fingers that she is head down! Post on IG or email me or blog or something to let me know!!
    Aaaand NOW I want a 5 Guys cheeseburger!

  2. Hope that they tell you baby has flipped! Your baby shower lunch sounds amazing, now I really want a cheeseburger. Guess I will be going to Wendy's for lunch today, its the only place I can walk to from work :)
