week 36

Le sigh. One final week of the honeydew.

Total weight gain: Not near a scale today as we're in a hotel but at my appointment on Tuesday I realized the alleged 1-pound weight loss from last week was a fluke. Up 2 lbs.

Movement: Same ol', same ol... Still very active and movements continue to be bigger, sometimes uncomfortable, and occasionally painful.

Cravings: I can't really think of anything. I have been more thirsty, though.

Symptoms: Crazy dreams, baby brain, forgetfulness, lots of waking in the middle of the night, more frequent crazy back pain, slightly less frequent hip pain from sleeping on my side, good hair, some pressure from baby settling and ligament pain, general feeling of uncomfortable-ness is getting more frequent, more daytime pottying, Braxton Hicks. Yeah, Braxton Hicks. Had a more active evening of them on Thursday. Not fun. Also haven't been sleeping that great lately. And, just for fun, a mild version of one of my biggest fears came true yesterday when my (historically bad) knee popped out and back in. Mild version because it popped back in without me having to put effort into getting it back in. I was concerned that the extra weight plus relaxin would only add to my bad knee genes. Hopefully that will be the only instance of this.

Belly button: Still in.

Preparations: Finished washing baby clothes and blankets. Made appointments with 3 tentative pediatricians and visited 4 potential daycares. Continue to narrow down the baby name list. Off till the 4th so hopefully I can knock out the rest this week.

Milestones: Well, I guess I'm starting the last month. Adjusted due date is exactly one month from today...

Weekly wisdom: Just ignore giant pregnant women and their emotions. I'm crazy. More often irritable and have a shorter fuse it seems. Sorry, people. And merry Christmas. :)

Wish you could have seen my face when I read the knee thing...I really, really hope this is your only instance of it too.

Getting down to the wire! L-O-V-E your weekly wisdom. I keep reminding my hubby what the teacher said in our child prep classes..."During this time, you're always wrong and you never do anything right. Bite your tongue and just accept it." This philosphy has worked for him so far...for the most part. ;)
