Husband Commentary: "I've never had papaya before either..." (He tried mangos for the first time recently)

Due date: February 11, 2019

How far along: 36 weeks; baby is continuing to beef up!

Size of baby: As big as a papaya

Gender: Baby GIRL!

Total weight gain: 36 lbs.

Symptoms: My pelvic/vaginal pressure is killing me. At times, I feel like my uterus is going to fall out. 

Physical changes: My belly looks super stretched and my face has been really dry. I haven't been able to crack my back due to the relaxin hormone. Sad. 

Labor signs: Baby is still super active. She's head down and I'm constantly needing to pee. And I'm definitely waddling now...I noticed that my pelvis felt different this week and that's the only comfortable way to walk. She's coming soon, guys!

Stretch marks: Some belly button stretchmarks. 

Wedding ring: On

Maternity clothes: I just got my Bravado maternity bra in the mail and it's SO COMFORTABLE. Definitely worth the extra expense.

Diet: Trying so hard to cut out sweets, but it's so hard!

Food cravings:

        • Any and all fruit
        • Fish
        • Mexican food
        • Sweets - Chocolate, cookies, gummy bears
        • Sourdough bread

Food aversions: None. 

Exercise: None. My body just won't cooperate. 

Sleep: Sleep has been up and down this week. I had a dream about seeing baby girl's foot through my belly and also a dream about what she'll look like as a toddler! So weird. 

Miss anything in particular: I feel like I'm losing my full range of motion and it makes life really difficult. I especially hate putting on shoes and hate having to get up after laying down.

Mood: Happy. Feeling supported and loved.

Looking forward to: Our hospital tour later today.

Worst moment this week: It has been such a gloomy week. I could use some sunlight right about now.

Best moment this week: Going to our ultrasound this week to check on baby's growth. Everything appears normal and she's HEAD DOWN! woo hoo!
