36 Weeks and a Niece!

Yesterday morning I got the message that my niece, Baby J, was born. 7:59am in a pool in the back yard. 20.25 inches, 7 lbs. 15 oz. Perfect and gorgeous!

Baby J

How far along? 36w4d
Total weight gain/loss? Weighed in at 201 today…2 below pre-pregnancy. My weight keeps fluctuating.
Gender? A gorgeous little girl.
Maternity clothes? Yep but I’ve been wearing a lot of my clothes from before my weight loss too…just to add some variety to my wardrobe.
Stretch marks? Yep…plenty
Sleep? I want to sleep all the time. I wake up frequently because my hips hurt.
Best moment this week?  My niece being born
Miss anything?  Pizza!!!!!!!!!!!
Movement?  She’s still moving a bunch…but there’s not much room.  I’m getting lots of kicks to the lungs and diaphragm.  I think she likes the game of making Mommy hiccup.
Food cravings?  Pizza!!!!!!
Anything making you queasy or sick?   Tomato sauces, ketchup, BBQ, chili, etc.
Symptoms?  My hips are starting to spread more.  I can feel the ligaments/tendons have stretched.  I feel my hips pop out of the socket quite frequently.
Labor Signs?  Not much yet.  Still haven’t felt a lot of contractions.
Belly Button in or out?  Still an inny but there is an outtie ridge haha
Wedding rings on or off?  On!!!
Happy or Moody most of the time?  Still usually happy but I’m noticing more moody periods.  I’ve been really sensitive.  I cry all the time.  And the slightest little thing pisses me off.
Looking forward to?  Meeting my baby girl!  We’ve got the labor bag and diaper bags packed and in the car.  Hubby installed the car seat last night.  We’re ready whenever this gorgeous baby girl decides to make her debut.  My midwife said that I’m at the point that if I go into labor they won’t do anything to stop it.  🙂
