This isn't going to be the most exciting post. Sorry in advance...I have a cold and I'm feeling a bit sluggish.
Size of Baby: Baby is still packing on the pounds — at the rate of about an ounce a day. She now weighs almost 6 pounds (like a crenshaw melon) and is more than 18 1/2 inches long. At the end of this week, she will be considered full-term. What is a crenshaw melon?
Movement: She's still moving and I'm still loving every minute of it. Some of her kicks are powerful and take my breath away!
Cravings: Nothing this week. Mainly because the baby is taking up the space that used to be occupied by my stomach.
Symptoms: The swelling has mostly gone down with the cooler weather (hooray!) so all that's left is heartburn, indigestion, and back pain.
Best moment of the week: Being 36 weeks pregnant and one week closer to our little one. And, we bought baby girl the cutest outfit to wear to my brother's wedding at the end of October!
What I am looking forward to: Besides the obvious (meeting our little girl), our midwife appointment tomorrow and breastfeeding class next week.
Weekly wisdom: I'm drawing a blank here....
