Mommy Monday: 36 Weeks Pregnant with Baby #2!

24 February 2014

Wearing cupcake socks in the cupcake room...he he he ;)

How far along?  36 weeks! 
Total weight gain/measurements: 29lbs! I gained 2lbs this week putting me at 144. This is the heaviest I've ever been and I can definitely feel it! It's getting so difficult to find clothes to wear that are actually comfortable and/or fit. I know some people disagree but based on experience I think being pregnant in the summer is much easier in terms of what you can wear...maxi dresses, ballet flats, tank tops and t-shirts are so much more comfortable than loads of layers, knits and bulky coats - at least in my opinion! 
Maternity clothes: Both items in this picture are maternity...the New Look jumper makes me look huge but it's comfortable so that's all that matters right now! And the ASOS jeans are one of the only 2 pairs that fit anymore :( 
Stretch marks: Still no new ones.
Sleep: It's been good overall. I need to take a nap once a day though, usually I do it during Emilia's naptime (she still naps 2 hrs which is amazing!). 
Best moment this week: We got our strollers...the Jané Twone in blue for our double stroller and another lighterweight Cosatto Giggle 3 in 1 travel system for single use (although you can use the Jané for that too). I think Jonathan just wanted to get another carseat for his car! 
Miss anything? Lots of things at the moment! Feeling like myself, being able to mount stairs without getting out of breath, or have enough energy to do everything I want to do! 
Movement: Lots - he is really strong too...I keep getting poked by elbows or knees which can feel so weird!
Food cravings: Last week it was Diet Coke. Thankfully I seem to have been able to cut that habit out quickly! 
Anything making you queasy or sick? Still off coffee/tea.
Gender: Boy 
Labour signs: Braxton Hicks contractions now and then. Pelvic pressure & lightening crotch! 
Symptoms: Heartburn (I live on Rennie tablets), fatigue, shortness of breath, back-ache...and generally feeling huge! 
Belly button in or out? Out
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: Meeting the baby...getting my hospital bag completely ready (we're almost there).
