I’m 36 weeks and a few days today. Today is an exciting day though because my SIL Missy is currently in the hospital getting ready to deliver her first child – a sweet little girl named Jona Lily. We just can’t wait to meet her! Pray for her as her progression has been a little slow since her water broke this morning at 3:30 am and last time I spoke to her (around 1pm) she was only 2 cm dilated!! All you prayer warriors out there – pray for her progression to speed up and a quick delivery sometime today!!
As for me, I went to the doctors today. I am currently 1 cm and 50% effaced – which is what I’ve been now for the last 2 1/2 weeks! Doc said that the baby’s head is LOW – like he could feel it in place, ready for departure! Cori was the same way and still 5 days late, so you just never know! I go in again next Tuesday for one final ultrasound to check weight, positioning, etc. It’s getting so close, yet it feels so far away at the same time! We took a new pregnancy pic yesterday – that belly is getting BIG!
How Far Along: 36 Weeks
Size of baby: Finley is almost 6 lbs. … Comparable in size to a soccer ball! It actually looks like there is a soccer ball in there too! HA!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 26 lbs – man, that feels like a lot!
Maternity Clothes: Still wearing maternity tanks from Target DAILY :) and maternity shorts. Gotta keep it comfortable in this HOT weather!
Gender: It's a girl!!! Finley Grace Smith
Movement: Still SO MUCH movement!! She moves in such a way that it makes me uncomfortable at times. I am so curious to see what her personality will be like considering the ridiculous amount she moves in there!
Sleep: HA! What sleep?!
What I miss: Being able to dry off my legs and feet with ease after a shower! I almost fall over every time!
Cravings: Right now, I’d like a smoothie! :)
Symptoms: Still heartburn – oh and a HUGE belly!!
Best Moment this week: Still hanging in there with the girls at the gym! Oh, and a super SWEET baby shower thrown by my friends over the weekend. Post to come!
Ya’ll, I am scared! Look at the difference in size!!! Ugh! I actually measured 37 weeks today at my appointment so maybe that means she will be here early! :) Pray for me!
