Week 36 of Pregnancy

posted in: Family | 0

Hello all! I finished week 36 of my pregnancy! We are really getting close, aren’t we? Ahhh!!

How I feel

I’m getting excited to meet baby!! My husband is too. In fact, he is mentioning it more and I think he is a little bit more impatient to meet her. 🙂 He has set a deadline of getting everything ready for baby by the end of Memorial Day weekend – we’ll see if we can make that happen. We did get our “go” bags packed and just have a few more things to buy to put in them. If you are curious what we packed, I made a pdfYes, we have two amazing diaper bags!! In the back is the skip hop double duo. I’ve heard it’s the best bag to have for cloth diapers – and Matt likes it too. Then, Matt surprised me by buying the diaper bag in front – smaller, for when I’m out and about with baby on my own:

Most of the time I still have pretty good energy. This week I set aside Friday to do Freezer cooking all day long – 8 hours!! I was SOO exhausted by the time my husband got home from work. (I was going to have two freezer cooking days before Baby Girl comes, but the second one is NOT happening after all.) But still, I had prepped 16 freezer meals!! After resting a little bit and enjoying dinner I even had enough energy for a short 20 minute walk. It was so beautiful outside.

I'm getting bigger!

Total weight gain/loss? I gained 4 pounds this week!! Biggest weight gain week ever, but it’s gotten me back on track for gaining 30 pounds overall. Right now I’ve gained 27 pounds overall. Lots of people have noticed growth in my belly lately. 🙂

Movement – Yes, she continues to move a lot!

Hunger/Cravings – Not really.

Best moment this week?

I had a surprise shower last weekend!! It was so much fun. My husband told me NOT to plan anything on Saturday – just leave it open. I kept thinking about what he could be up to, but I never guessed that there was a surprise shower planned by my Kansas City family and friends. It was so much fun to be treated again!! I feel so blessed!

I didn’t take any pictures, but my husband took a picture of the awesome punch fountain set up by “Aunt” Danielle and Marmie (as Baby Girl will call them).



What I am looking forward to

I’m looking forward to have the nursery done and showing you pictures of it!! We finally found a side table that will work this week, except we have to paint it – which Matt started working on the next free moment he had. I’ve got a great husband!!

Our little “June Bug’s” Growth

We’ve been taking photos since week 6 and showing a fruit or vegetable in the picture that is the same size as our little “June Bug”. Last week: our little girl was over 18 inches long and about 5 1/4 pounds in weight (honeydew melon). This week: 18.5 inches long (bok choy) and about 6 pounds in weight!
