36 weeks~ one more to go!

If this pic doesn't show us how big she is... I don't know what would! :) Can you say... CHUBBS!

And I guess when they think you are going to have a 9 pound baby... your baby bump looks like a pointy watermelon!


How far along? 36 weeks 1 day

EDD: 6/3/12
Induction Date: 5/14/12

Weight gain/loss:  Up 2 this week for a total of 24 this pregnancy.
Next Ultrasound: Don't think I'll be having another.
Size of baby: Ultrasound guessimate today was 9lbs 6oz at 36 weeks= CRAZY!!
Gender: Girl. And confirmed again today.

Maternity clothes? And some of those don't fit so good!
Stretch marks: Yeppers.
Sleep: I'm pretty much over the sleep issue... have just come to realize it will be a good year before I ever sleep again!!! Eventhough I have been sleeping better this week.
Best moment this week: Knowing that the end is in sight and that everything is looking good so far for her delivery next week.

Food cravings: I'm not really into food anymore, kinda back to the morning sickness feeling. 

Pregnancy Signs: Looking pregnant.
Movement: Yep... but instead of kicks and pokes, its more the roll and tumble feeling.

What I miss: It always seems like when you're pregnant you want to be done and then when the end is in sight you fear you may miss it.
What I am looking forward to: Monday!
Weekly Wisdom: That I can live in my dreamland as long as I want... or until the truth comes out! Like... ohhh, she is only like 7lbs in there!!! Also that I need to be flexible about what happens during delivery and if a CSection is best... it's best... but I still don't really want one!

Mattie's room!

KK and I put up the wall decals today during our sick day. It was great to have her help and she had a fun!

I had tried to put them up a few weeks ago but they didnt stick very well. so i read the comments in the reviews that said to use washable glue to help... we'll see!

Gender: Girl. Eventhough I did have a dream the other night that I had a boy...

Maternity clothes? And some of those don't fit so good!
Stretch marks: Yeppers.
Sleep: I'm pretty much over the sleep issue... have just come to realize it will be a good year before I ever sleep again!!!
Best moment this week: Can't really think of one... but KK now says when she is sitting on my lap and can't get comfortable, "momma, belly too big!" Funny??? I'm not so sure!

33 &34 Weeks



How far along? 34 weeks 1 days

EDD: 6/3/12

Weight gain/loss:  Gained a half a pound between 33 and 34 weeks.
Next Ultrasound: 5/7/12... 36 weeks, to check for size and set a date for her appearance. He gave us some options today at our appointment. Have ultrasound, if she is a big girl different things could happen... have an amino to check for lung development and if good have her, not have amino but get steroid shot for lung development and have her, or wait it out and just see. He was saying however that we should be ready to go on May 14th! If she is not so big, we have until week 39 at the latest.
Size of baby: Not sure, but if her butt or feet feel like they are in my throat and her head keeps pushing on my cervix, I'm thinking she's pretty large. Also I can't even really bend over anymore without feeling like she is going to pop a foot out my mouth!
Gender: Girl.

Maternity clothes? Ummm,,, yeah...
Stretch marks: The old ones have gotten darker. I am soooo much bigger than I was with KK that I wouldn't be surprised if there aren't more... but who's counting at this point!
Sleep: Pretty bad! I think the birdies are waking up KK about 5am every morning. So between that and a leg cramp every 30 minutes or having to pee every hour there is not much sleep to be had.
Best moment this week: We had a good day today. KK's daycare was closed due to a water main break so she had to come with us to the appointment. I have to say I was a little unsure how she would do, but she was great and didn't get too fussy or out of control. Then she even tolerated going shopping and to lunch. She is doing much better about sitting and behaving than say 2 months ago... growing into a big girl... just in time to help with her lil sis :) (Ok, right... this isn't a blog about KK) :)

Food cravings: Last week I wanted Fish Sticks and Mac and Cheese. Also hot dogs and potatoes fried together... I know... yuck... it doesn't sound good to me this week either!  

Pregnancy Signs: Looking pregnant.
Movement: Yep... didn't I talk earlier about the foot out the mouth and head butting the cervix...

What I miss: This is not really what I miss now... but I keep thinking about how KK's life is about to change and how she won't be the center of ALL our attention anymore and it makes me a little sad for her and for us... that it just won't be the three of us anymore.
What I am looking forward to: Getting to go back to work part time after Mattea is born. Just praying that it all works out with her daycare and money wise.
Weekly Wisdom: I'm too tired to be wise this week :)
