36 weeks. (That's 9 months!)

Tuesday, March 1, 2011

I took another legit belly pic today. :D PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE vote for my blog!

How far along? 36 weeks, 2 days.

Total Weight Gain: No idea. Somewhere around 25 lbs.

Belly button: Innie.

Stretch marks: Some days they look better, some days they look worse. When BD sees my belly, he says "my poor baby". I'm not sure if he's talking about me or the baby, but regardless, it's pretty gross. I feel like a tiger. eww.

Maternity clothes: Everything is tight now and leaves marks on my skin (mostly pants right under my belly, even sweatpants) :(

Gender: GIRL. She had better be a girl. Unless it's a boy, and he wants to wear pink. (I've already taken tags off and washed everything.) I wouldn't mind, but I know BD would. That's why everything I bought is gender-neutral.

Movement: Lots of hiccups as usual. I think she flipped because I'm feeling hiccups by my ribs, instead of down low near the underside of my belly. LAME. That means she's head-up. No good. You had better turn, little one!

Symptoms: The pain is better! Something I would never thought would happen when I hit 9 months. Which is another reason why I think she's flipped. The back pain only comes if I'm on my feet a lot, walking around and such. My inner thighs/groin area hurt a lot last week, which is why I thought she dropped into my pelvis, but it doesn't hurt as much anymore. I would rather have her head-down and deal with the pain, though. I really don't want to have a c-section. :/

Food aversions: Ehh. Not much.

Food cravings: Sugar. Mostly. This morning I made DELICIOUS pancakes. I often crave ice cream and candy. It's like being back in the second trimester. But I'm not craving it too much. I often have to remind myself to put food in my system.

What I miss: Drinking. :/ Sad, I know. I watched BD have a lot of good beer this past weekend, and I was severely jealous.

What I am looking forward to: Moving in with BD. Which will be happening THIS FRIDAY!!!! Get excited! I'm so ready to nest and make up this nursery! I think that after I spend a few days unpacking and decorating, she'll make her appearance. She's just waiting for us to feel ready. :)
I start my new job next week! I'm working with my sorority sister (she's my manager) so it will be nice to be under someone who knows my situation. I'm starting training next week, and will work until the bean comes. After she's born, I'll have my maternity leave and work as an assistant manager. :) I'm not sure what we'll do for childcare (I really don't like it at all) but we'll figure something out.

Milestones: Kind of TMI, but I lost my mucus plug. Which could mean that labor is on it's way, or that I have another month to wait. It's like a fake labor-sign. Like the groundhog seeing his shadow.

Names we're thinking recently:
Unsure. I like Rowan and Elsie most. BD likes Clara and Zoey. I'm kind of hoping that when she's born, he'll get all emotional, and proud of me, and just let me pick her name. :)

Oh! And if you enjoyed my belly pic, this post, or my blog in general, PLEASE vote for me! kthanks! :)
