36 weeks. Can you believe there's only one month left? It's a little bittersweet. I'm going to miss all the little kicks, punches and hiccups...but then the rib jabs and bladder bounces...not so much:)
Most of all, I can't wait to meet her and see what she looks like and just get to know her! It's going to be great!
Yesterday I wrote a post on Bible verses I plan to have with my during labor and delivery. You can check that out here!
I have already thrown a few things together to have with us at the hospital but I'm always looking for suggestions on what to bring...
What items do you recommend packing for the hospital?
How Far Along? 36 weeks-I feel like my belly can't get any bigger!
Movement? Still plenty of movement! She gets the hiccups a lot which is fun. She has also been jabbing her little feet and arms out pretty hard. I love poking at them and her responding back with another little jab. I'm not sure if she likes it, or if she's irritated at me!
Weight Gain: Well the holiday weekend did the trick and I have now gained 20 pounds! There's just so much candy everywhere...this is going to be hard!
Maternity Clothes: I did get a free maternity sweater from Pink Blush Maternity that I will be doing a review on and a $25 giveaway on later this week, so stay tuned!
Best Moment of my week: Black Friday Shopping! Woohoo I got all of my Christmas shopping and made some AWESOME deals. It was probably one of the best years...but I think I say that every year haha. This year, I went with my sister-in-law Elisabeth. We had a great time!
Worst moment of my week: Sciatic nerve pain. It's the worst. I also have had a cold the past couple of days which is no fun:(
Sleep: This cold has been keeping me up at night because I can't breathe! Other than that and the 4 nightly trips to the bathroom, I'm sleeping pretty good!
Miss Anything: I miss being useful! We went out to help some of our friends get their new house ready to move in. There was like nothing I could help with because I'm pregnant!
Aversions: eggs, peppers and onions...even writing it makes me sick!
Gender: Still a girl! I have the doctor check every time to make sure lol. You can read about her gender reveal party here!
Belly Button: It's an outie
Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks. And now I have random pains in my pelvis too which I guess means I'm getting closer to labor!
Other Symptoms: Sciatic nerve pain and just this week my ankles started to swell pretty bad...or should I say cankles?
Mood: Tired and anxious to have the nursery ready!
Looking Forward: Getting nursery projects done. Here's the latest project painting wooden letters of sweet pea's name to match the curtains and pillows in her room! It's all coming together:)
I've got so many other fun projects I need to keep working on too!
Thanks for following along with my pregnancy updates and for your sweet comments! I love reading each and every one of them!
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
