Third Pregnancy : Week 36
Oh man. I’ve officially reached the point where I’m ready to count the days until Caroline’s arrival. I’ve been feeling extremely tired, overly emotional, and relatively large in the belly region…I wonder why…
Stress is getting to me and I even had a migraine on Saturday. The blurry vision, impaired speech, and pounding head were enough to send anyone into a bit of a fret, but I was extra frustrated by the whole thing since I was just trying to enjoy the weekend with Travis and the girls. I don’t have time for migraines! There’s too much to do! Fingers crossed I’m not annoyed by more of those before May 14th.
Overall, things are still going well, I’m just really tired. I can only imagine how tired I’ll be once I have three kids to watch all day, every day! I suppose I should enjoy only having two while I still can! And enjoy special time with my ladies before there’s a newborn needing me 24/7.
How far along:
How big is baby:
The size of a head of romaine lettuce
Weight gain this week (followed by total weight gain for this pregnancy thus far):
1 lb (33 lbs)
Same old, same old. I’m pretty much ONLY in workout clothes these days. Jeans are SOOO uncomfortable…all they do is slide down my belly and force me to pull them up constantly. Talk about annoying.
Sleep has been a little less than awesome. For the past week, both girls have been up in the night…all nights except two nights ago. Thankfully, Travis gets them and helps them out, but I’m obviously awake during all of it. I’m just hoping for a few more nights of solid sleep before Caroline arrives. I’m actually considering separating the girls for sleep at night, but I’m not sure if that’ll make things that much better…
We’ll be making a decision on that this weekend.
Best moment(s) of the week:
Enjoying Easter with the girls.
Chex, chocolate, pesto, mexican food, sushi…basically anything and everything. I’ve been very hungry this week. I’m honestly surprised I haven’t been gaining more at the end of this pregnancy.
A dark line is developing down my belly…it’s still super faint and I’m wondering why.
Swelling when I’m on my feet too long.
Caroline is a GIRL!
What I’m looking forward to:
Getting our maternity pictures taken on Saturday. We’ve had to reschedule twice, so I look forward to finally getting that out of the way. I am going to feel SUPER pregnant in these pictures…
What I’m nervous about:
Having more migraines between now and when Caroline arrives.
What I miss:
Sleeping through the night.
Until next time,
