36 weeks




Pregnancy Highlights

How far along? 36 weeks

Baby Size: According to my BabyBump app, Harper is about the size of a crenshaw melon. She should be around 18.5 inches and weigh approximately 5.75 pounds. 

Total Weight Gain: As of my last doctor's appointment which was this past Friday, I'm pretty much maintaining my weight gain at this point. I'm hanging somewhere around 30 pounds... give or take a few. 

Maternity Clothes: Pretty much maternity clothes these days but I still lounge around in my pre-preggo lounge clothes while I'm at home.

Stretch Marks? Well it's official... I have a couple of stretch marks... on my hip of all places! But at least it'll be hidden by bathing suits and underwear so that's okay! At least all of the noticeable places are still stretch mark free! And you best believe, I'll start applying lotion to my entire body from here on out!

Sleep: I've been waking up more and more during the night these last few days but I fall right back to sleep after rolling over. 

Best Moment This Week: We have several things to be thankful for this week! Kevin and I had a great babymoon! I'll blog about it later this week.. sorry I haven't done it sooner! We also had our last baby shower on Sunday and we were beyond blessed with goodies. And last but not least, our doctor's appointment went great on Friday! We found out Harper was head down so we didn't have to schedule a c-section as we originally thought . We also found out I was 1-2 cm dilated and am 50% effaced so we were told she may make her way earlier than expected which is fine with this baby mama!

Miss Anything? My pre-preggo body...selfish...maybe...but I know it's all worth it!

Movement: Her movements are less frequent these days as she's running out of room but they are also much stronger when she does wiggle and squirm! So I'm kind of thankful she's slowed it down a bit. haha

Food Cravings: Sweet tea and salty fries especially if they're from Mickey D's! 

Gender: A Girl {Harper Londyn Holt}

Labor Signs: A few Braxton Hicks contractions here and there. 

Symptoms: Just the usual... acid reflux and swelling.

Belly Button In or Out? Believe it or not, it's still in! It's barely a sliver. so I'm waiting for my belly button to pop out any day now!

Wedding Rings On or Off? Still on! 

Mood: Super excited!

Looking Forward to: a few things this week! Since I'm at the 36 week mark, I have to go to the doctor weekly so we'll be going back on Friday to check on Harper Doodle. I'm anxious to find out if we've made any more progress in the dilation and effacement department! I'm also looking forward to our Breastfeeding Basics class this Saturday... though I would be lying if I said I wasn't a bit nervous about it! The whole concept is a bit scary so I'm hoping I'll feel a bit more relieved after the class. But just in case I don't, I signed up for the Breastfeeding Beyond the Basics class to get even more info! I'd rather be prepared then not!

  1. Hooray for being dilated :) that's great news! I was nervous about our BF class and still am about the whole process, but I'm happy we went to the class.

  3. It is not selfish to miss your pre-pregnancy body at all. I miss mine ALL the time. It's just hard to get around once you hit the 3rd trimester, so I think most pregnant women would agree that they miss their old bodies by this point! Salty fries sound so yummy right now (and it's 10:30 am, lol!) And yay for baby Harper being head down. That's great news:)
