How far along?: 36 weeks!
Size of baby: "He now weighs almost 6 pounds and is more than 18 1/2 inches long (about the size of a head of romaine lettuce)" via BabyCenter
Weight gain: I go in tomorrow but I don't think I'm going to look. I just don't even want to know anymore. Who cares.
Movement: Lots of hiccups lately!!! And rolling around. He runs his foot from my hip to my ribs all in one single swoop and it makes me jump! It hits right in my ticklish area - such a riot. I'll miss all these kicks and twirls!
Symptoms: Little swelling here and there if I haven't had enough to drink. More so this weekend because we were traveling and I was off my regular diet.
Tired. Holy cow can I sleep. I have been telling friends that I feel like I am the newborn or a puppy or something. I snack. Then I nap. Then I wake up and think, "I could go for a snack." and then fall asleep again. I take multiple naps throughout the day. THANK GOODNESS LW is a trooper and will snuggle and snack alongside of me while I go through my lazy end of pregnancy days. He is a champ. Also: we watch a lot of Mickey Mouse. No shame here. Do what you gotta do, am I right!?
Cravings: I craved herbal tea this weekend, but I think that's more a vacation thing than a pregnancy thing. Something about being on vacation makes me want a really delectable cup of tea in the morning, like a special treat. We were in Detroit this past weekend and found the coolest market to visit. A tea and coffee shop there had an Ayurvedic tea blend that completely hit the spot. It had mint, ginger, lemongrass and other happy things in it. Delightful!
I ate a sick amount of snack foods since we had about 12 hours of driving over the few days we were gone. Again, I think more a traveling thing than a pregnancy thing.
Looking forward to: The last few weeks of pregnancy. I was feeling crummy weeks 33, 34 and into 35 but 36 is being really good to me so far. I'm hoping I have more good days than bad these final weeks! Wishful thinking as that may seem.
Things I can't stop thinking about: My last pregnant friend who was due before me had her baby a few days ago....so I just can't stop thinking, "Oh my gosh, I'm next." I'm next.
