I have done such a terrible job lately of blogging. I have just not had the energy. I think about it sit down and just can't. Just a slump I suppose. My lack of blogging has definitely showed with my pregnancy updates this time. I went back to look at the updates from this time..one really. Terrible. I thought it was much more so I am guessing I just "thought" those post but they never made it to the blog. So here goes 36 weeks....
How far along: 36 weeks
Weight gain/loss: I think I have gained around 35 (but that's not including the 10 I was holding onto from Brant's pregnancy)
Maternity Clothes: YES, and really most of those are getting too small!
Stretch marks: This is an area I have been lucky with both times. I haven't had any either time.
Sleep: Oh sleep it's terrible!! There is not a comfortable position at this point.
Diet: Nothing in particular. I have had indigestion so bad this time (not as much heartburn which I had a lot of with Brant...who knew there was a difference)
Gender: Boy! Spencer Allen
Movement: YES! Spence has been FAR MORE active than Brant. He is honestly rarely still (which is always reassuring).
The belly: BIG! Like really big.
What I miss: clothes fitting, running, walking normal, sleep
Symptoms: Indigestion, hips hurting. I have not swollen nearly as much this time which is very nice. However, I have had MUCH more pressure and back pain. Maybe this is associated with a baby being head down???
Thoughts: Ike has been calling me negative Nancy, but I really have not felt very good these past few days. Like I said more pressure, back pain, indigestion, etc.. have not been fun at all. I am very aware of how blessed I am to have had such a healthy pregnancy. This time I am much more realistic about the whole newborn phase. Last time I had all these "projects" to accomplish, suppers to try fixing, books to read, etc... I know those things will not happen. I know I will not be sleeping and I WILL be feeding around the clock. I think reality is a good thing, and with that I am ready for our little Spence to be here. I am worried about Brant. I have heard so many times how much a child even Brant's age loves the new baby so I am hoping he takes him as his and loves him. We are excited, busy preparing for him, and feel extremely blessed! We have 3 weeks at most left!! That is unreal.
