How Far Along: 36 weeks, 4 days (9 months)
Size of baby: Baby is around the size of a watermelon (19-22 inches, 6.5lbs)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: up 23 lbs.
Maternity Clothes: most everything
Gender: 100% girl
Movement: lots and lots and lots. The movement is getting lower and lower.
Sleep: it's very broken. I woke up at 2:30 this morning and was up until 4. When I get up at 6, I'm not even tired. I guess my body is preparing for baby!
What I miss: running for long periods of time/working out hardcore, beer, and sushi.
Cravings: nothing. I'm so boring!
Symptoms: My lower back hurts on occasions. I went to the doctor last week and was checked...nothing goin on down there. Then she told me how perfect everything has been for me (yay!) She wanted to make sure the baby was head down, so she did another ultrasound. Baby is head down. I asked if she could check the sex for me again and she said 100% girl! It was so cool seeing her on the ultrasound this time, she looked like a real baby. Before she looked more like an alien, but this time she looked like a super cute baby.
I told Nate this morning that waiting for the impending birth is like waiting for Christmas. He said, "Christmas for the next 18 years." We decided this was going to be a very expensive holiday :):):)
There it is...full on. Hope you weren't eating breakfast or anything.
