Baby Update: 36 weeks! 

 Holy cow! Only one month (or less) to go before the tiny human is here!

This week our darling little Peanut is the size of a large cantaloupe. Weighing in at around 6lbs and measuring around 19 inches in length.

Lots of fun has happened the past two weeks, so here we go…

Baby Doctor Appointment Update: I went in last Thursday for another check up. Baby is measuring about 13 inches from head to rump! I can’t figure out how she still fits in there…can’t imagine it’s comfy.

Also was checked out and had no dilation yet. The cramping I had was a slight case of Braxton Hicks and I was told to monitor them.

My next appointment is this Thursday. I can’t wait to see if there is any progress with baby’s time to arrive!

Symptoms: As of the last week or so I have had HORRIBLE pelvic pain. After calling my doctor’s office and some googling, I found out I am neither dying or alone in feeling this pain. This pain is caused by baby dropping and my pelvic bone making room for her to eventually exit. I was told in most cases the pain goes away after a couple of days, I am apparently not most cases. Go figure 😉

However, due to the pelvic pain and fatigue of the last few weeks of pregnancy, I have enjoyed a couple of personal days off work. It was nice spending time with the furbabies and the hubby.

Birthday Predictions: my close group of teacher friends (squad) have put in their predictions. They seem to think baby will be here sometime between October 20-25.

Other Fun Things: The hubby and I went to a wedding last night. I managed to wear heels and still dance the night away (to an extent). Although, towards the end of the evening I was happy to take off my shoes and head home to sleep.

My hospital bag is almost packed… Still needing to add some things, but I hope to get that done today 🙂

Can’t believe she will be here so soon!

36 weeks down, 4 more to go!
