36 Week Bumpdate





How far along? 36 Weeks & 6 days

Size of Baby: Baby girl was 6 pounds and 11 oz at Monday's appointment ya'll!

Total weight gain/loss: Sitting at 142...wow haha

Symptoms: Same stuff with the leg/thigh swelling and now heavily affecting right calf and sciatic nerve. Other than that- we were hooked up to the monitor to measure uterine activity and baby's heart rate and had 9 contractions in 20 minutes and heart rate was right on track! Come on baby girl!



Food cravings: This green tea with honey! Notice it's empty... 

 
Anything making you queasy or sick: This leg and nerve pain - makes me light headed...Still keep having thoughts of epidural in my head when the big day comes because I feel like such a wimp with these legs but at least there's a goal on the big day and I know it'll then be over.. I guess we'll see!

Have you started to show yet: I swallowed a basketball basically


Gender prediction: Girl! Miss Anderson Greer Otey (Andi)

Nursery: The rug from PB Kids came and it is perfect! Her bedding should be in next week too and wall monogram - again, not really rushing since she won't be up there for quite sometime but still so fun to go up there and decorate and sit! 

 

Workouts: Attempting stairs and vacuuming first floor was my activity this week.... no joke :(

Labor Signs: Just practice contractions like its my job - crampy too in the mornings especially

Belly Button in or out? flat

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy and excited but ready now...I've reached that point they all told me about - the point where your like ok I'm ready to be able to walk around again haha Can't wait to meet her so soon!!

Best Moment this week: Getting to spend some time at the bay AND getting to see her sweet face at another 4D ultrasound on Monday. She's still sportin' that pout! Love it!

Friday 5

Happy Friday ya'll and happy Easter weekend! I hope the temps are warming up wherever you are and that you get some family time and relaxing in this weekend! I'm headed off to our bay house for a little babymoon of my own (hubby has to work unfortunately) and I'm looking forward to just being by the water. Linking up today with the usual gang: Christina, April, Darci, Natasha , Amanda over at Meet @ the Barre and Karli with September Farm. for Friday 5 and Friday Favorites


THIS - ALL of this



Will be packing this weekend for sure! Any recommendations or is this list pretty accurate?
I want to congratulate one of my blogging besties on their new arrival of their little girl! I want to share their adorable name and picture so badly because she is absolutely gorgeous ya'll! So head over to Just the Joys and congratulate Julie!


Happening lately- snuggles with Emma before she's not the baby anymore (haha) Hubs still being an assembler, new tea towels from Kroger for $2.99 - YES $2.99 and I finished all of baby girl's laundry! The scent of dreft is absolutely incredible!

35 Week Bumpdate



How far along? 35 Weeks & 6 days

Size of Baby: Baby girl measured a nice 4 lbs and 6 oz at our last ultrasound a month ago so I'm sure she's above the average 5.25 pounds my app says. (and 18 inches long!)

Total weight gain/loss: up 2 pounds from last month's check-in (about 140! yikes) but with this new fluid retention and swelling I'm not surprised

Symptoms: Everything blood sugar wise is right on track! BUT I can no longer walk, move or stand for more then 5-10 minutes. My leg swelling and pitting edema is so bad that sleep is impossible and at work my feet must be propped at all times. I'm squeezing in half days at this point and trying not to cry or vomit with everyday activities- been such a great pregnancy thus far so I guess SOMETHING had to happen...



Food cravings: Anything cold like Popsicles or Italian ice and lots of water!

Anything making you queasy or sick: This leg and nerve pain - makes me light headed...reealllly rethinking that natural birth/no epidural situation at this point!   

Have you started to show yet: Oh fo' sho'


Gender prediction: Girl! Miss Anderson Greer Otey (Andi)

Nursery: Waiting on a gorgeous PB kids pink and green rug to come in next week! Slowly making progress but making her little nook in our room where she'll be for a while is fun too!

Workouts: Well since I can't move...like at all :(

Labor Signs: Braxton hicks plus crampy round ligament pain? Yes- at least 6-7 times a day

Belly Button in or out? flat

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy and excited but ready now...I've reached that point they all told me about - the point where your like ok I'm ready to be able to walk around again haha Can't wait to meet her so soon!!

Best Moment this week: Still getting the sweetest gifts for little Miss A is so fun! Also, we have an appointment today with my OB and then an appointment with the high risk doctor on Monday with an ultrasound to check her progress and weight etc. 




- Leaving for our bay house tomorrow for Easter weekend will be fabulous too. Feet propped and not able to move by the water is better than at home right?
