35 weeks { bump }

Onto my 36 week... like a champ... or not. I've been pretty whiny lately... and haven't been as pleasant to be around. I think it has something to do with being 27 lbs heavier than my normal weight (this is weighing myself after eating dinner at the end of the day), in the 90+ degree heat... I'm exhausted... like as in, 1st trimester all over again, and all of a sudden my body is rejecting coffee (definitely threw it up in the shower this morning along with my breakfast) and nausea strikes again. It's crazy, especially when I have SO much to do before she comes out.

I've been experiencing a lot of false contractions, especially at night, as I sleep... and some minor cramping in my lower back/abdomen... it comes every 30-45 minutes, and sometimes I get a 3-4 hour break... but it's crazy how it seems like my body is starting to "warn" me of what's to come.  I have my next appointment on Monday next week, where I'll get to meet another midwife who could potentially be "on call" while I go into labor... and I'm guessing she's going to start "checking" me to see what's going on down yonder. I'm definitely interested to see where I'm at, and if she "might" come sooner rather than later.

I've started prepping my hospital bag, even though I have a few things I still need to purchase.  The car seat arrived, and just needs to get snapped into place. I'm heading on a road trip tomorrow to purchase the crib and a few other odds and ends for "her room"... so hopefully I can get most of her things into place and ready before she comes along... you know, typical nesting. What most pregnant ladies do, but I have failed to do thus far. Does it count that I've bought the special laundry detergent, even though I haven't washed her clothes in it yet?

Cravings: still chomping on ice, like it's my job.

Turn Offs: sadly... I must write... coffee...

Daddy's thoughts on the pregnancy thus far: "Please don't pop... I still have flying hours to accumulate before she can come out..."

Charlotte's thoughts on the pregnancy thus far: "I'm going to pick out her outfits everyday for her"... the fashionista has spoken.
Pin It!


  1. Beautiful Momma! And the car seat is one of the most important things. The other ones can wait :)
