36 and 37 Weeks
It looks like I am holding a bowling ball! Maternity shirts are starting to get short- see the shirt creeping up? Not good!
How Far Along: 37 weeks
Size of baby: 36 Weeks(Crenshaw melon?) and 37 weeks (stalk of Swiss Chard)
Maternity Clothes: All maternity
Weight Gain: 30 lbs
Movement: She is mover and a shaker. However, she is starting to run out of room so her movements can sometimes hurt. She has hiccups several times a day and they shake my whole stomach- same as last time
Sleep: Sleep has not been fun lately. I have what I believe to be restless leg syndrome and it is horrible. If I sit or lay down for too long, I constant urges to move my legs. This makes it very hard to fall asleep. I literally have to walk around the house for a while. –same as last time, but honestly it is worse! I have been sleeping propped on the couch.
Symptoms: A lot of lower back, hips, and leg pain. I still have very swollen feet, wrists, and hands. Both of my rings are off and many of my shoes are tight.- same as last time plus reflux is back with a bang and occurs usually at night, lots of hip and leg pain if I sit for too long, tired very easily, so basically MISERABLE (but of course it will all be worth it very soon!)
Cravings: Still cold drinks, fruit, oatmeal (new craving!), and ICE!
Best moment this week: Having only 2 more days left of work!!!
Look at the comparison and tell me if you think she has dropped any. I think maybe some after looking at these pictures.
