How Far: 36 weeks.
Maternity Clothes: My version of them. Not actual maternity clothes. But bigger sizes in normal clothes.
Weight Gain: 25.4 pounds. Doctor appointment this week makes it exact!
Stretch Marks: No new ones. Fingers crossed.
Belly Button: It's out!
Best Moment: Liv's got the hiccups for the first time! It took me a minute to realize that's what was happening. I thought she was just irritated and kicking in a pattern for a minute because I was leaning forward and she wanted more space. She just had the hiccups! Although I'm sure she'd like some more room too! AND getting to see her! At my appointment this week I asked my doctor if we could take a peek since I've had two dreams that she comes out a boy! Not that we wouldn't be excited about a boy but everything is so girl that it would be an issue at this point! She's a girl! And growing. And my doctor says has her little tush pushed right up against my uterus wall. No surprise there since I can feel it push when she stretches!
Worst Moment: The dreams that she comes out a boy. I wake up freaking out. I've been afraid to cut the tags off of her clothes. And freaked out about how we're supposed to put a boy in her pink bedroom. Or just all of the pink in general. Even her furniture is girly! And the wait at my appointment to get to see her. My doctor was busy that day and running behind and I asked for an ultrasound. So I spent some time in the office waiting.
Cravings: Sonic ice. It's pretty much my life right now. And ice cream. Ice cream sandwiches to be exact.
Sleep: Not too bad. I wake up to pee. But I am so tired at the end of the day that I crash as soon as I get in bed.
Movement: She's running out of room! I can now tell where certain parts of her are. Like her little feet are up on my right side. And I'm pretty sure her back runs along my left side. And she throws her arms out every once in while.
Symptoms: Crazy dreams. Weight gain. Growing belly. Sensitivity to smells. You know the normal stuff. One smell that really seems to bug me is the bathroom. TMI, but Preston doesn't always hit the toilet perfectly and OMG I am cleaning the damn toilet like every single day because even a drop of pee on the back or side will drive me crazy. Especially when I'm peeing every five minutes so I spend a lot of time hanging out in the bathroom!
Emotions: Excited! Things are getting ready! We still have a to do list that seems crazy long. But still, things are getting done to get ready for her!
Next up thirty-seven weeks!
