36 Weeks


Weeks: 36 Weeks
Weight Gain: According to Dr. Moore's office, I'm now +15 lbs. from pre-preggo weight. 
This Week's Cravings: Nothing, really. I've been having the same thing for breakfast everyday {a toasted whole grain English muffin with butter and raspberry jam} but I think the lack of variety is just largely due to laziness. 
New Maternity / Baby Purchases: After the baby shower and assessing everything we've received, we only had a few necessities left: a travel wipes case, mittens, some socks, newborn hats, and a clip-on high chair. We were so blessed to have been showered with so many gifts that we barely needed anything else!
Moment of the Week: Last Thursday, I had my big appointment with Dr. Moore to have the cerclage stitch removed. It was a relief to have gotten this far and it brought so much excitement to us as he filled us in on baby's growth {we are slowly headed towards a 7 1/2 lb. baby} and he did say that I was slightly effaced already. He said that my body is behaving as if I was already full term, and Camden can arrive at any moment.
This Week's Pregnancy Cheat: It's actually been weeks since I've cheated. Funny enough, now that I'm this far along and actually have more leeway to cheat, I'm not doing so at all.
Sleep Pattern: My sleep has gotten much worse. Last night, for example, I woke up every hour from 10:30 p.m. until 9:30 a.m. to use the potty. During my 3:30 a.m. wake up, I actually ended up staying up for 2 hours because I couldn't go back to sleep. I have read that more frequent urination, coupled with my now-intense pelvic pain and pressure "down there" may mean that Baby is beginning to descend. I hope this is true.
Things I'm Really Missing: At this particular moment, I am missing sleep. I know that signing up to be a new mom pretty much signs me off and away from sleep, but I just miss the sleep where my body isn't aching and I am not having to pee every hour. 
Things to Look Forward To: After hearing Dr. Moore's news last week, I am looking forward to just having Camden here already. Obvi, we'd been looking forward to it for a while, but now that we are that much closer and there is nothing else {outside of doctor's appointments} as far as classes to attend and parties to do, I just really want her here already!

Next week: we will be FULL TERM! It is worth mentioning that I know literally 7-10 women who are also currently pregnant and due within two weeks of me. The first of them already had her little girl last night. I'm crossing my fingers that I'm next in line!
