36 Weeks Pregnant

36 week collage

How far along? 36 Weeks

Maternity clothes? All over the place!

Best moment this week: Watching the house start looking like a forreal house! And finally getting to move upstairs! What? That’s right, we’re out of the dungeon/pit of despair/basement. But more on that on Wednesday’s post.

Miss anything? Coughing without peeing. Yep, that’s happening. I’m still sick and cough a lot and if there is anything in my bladder…I have some problems. dontaskanyquestionsidontwannatalkaboutit.

Movement: So much all the time. He never stops moving. He rolls and kicks and pokes out elbows and knees all over the place. It’s a little hard to get comfy sometimes.

Food cravings: Mmm nothing comes to mind. If I could I would take a magic pill that would give me all my nutrients and I wouldn’t have to eat or cook or shop for groceries anymore.

Anything making you queasy or sick: When I’m too lazy to get up and get food. Not eating will do that to a preggo lady.

Worst symptom: I’m a bit indifferent to the state of my house and I’m going to chalk that up to pregnancy fatigue. So we’ll go with that one. Also I’m a bit tired of having to get up during the night to pee.

Have you started to show yet: Oh yeah and I just keep growing. Although I feel smaller than I did with Evelyn. Not sure if that’s really the case or not…

Gender: It’s a boy!

Belly Button in or out? Out.

Wedding rings on or off? Still on. That’s pretty amazing if you ask me.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Mostly moody with like a hint of happy on occasion.

Looking forward to: Getting all settled in and ready for this kid.

I was thrown for a bit of a loop this week when I tested positive for Group B Strep. I haven’t talked with my midwife about it yet but I’m getting worried that I might have to birth in a hospital…I’m crossing my fingers that it doesn’t happen. You guys, I just don’t think I’ll be strong enough to stick with a natural birth in a hospital. There’s something about being in a hospital bed that says relax and nothing says relax more than an epidural. Send some good wishes my way in hopes that there is a good solution to this at home.
