36 Weeks

36 Weeks

Total Weight Gain:  24 lbs.

Wedding Rings On or Off?  On!  Although, I've started to take them off when I go swimming because they are still a little loose and I'm worried about losing them!  Also,  this week has the marked the beginning of my feet swelling... 

Stretch Marks? No!  I think I'm in the clear, but we'll see what happens after baby is here...

Sleep?  Absolutely terrible.  I just cannot turn my mind off at night!  Also, Liam is constantly in my ribs (especially when I'm sleeping) and moving around like crazy, so we lay awake together....all night long!

Best Moment This Week:  Tuesday night date night!  We went shopping for a chair for the nursery and made the big purchase finally!  Followed by mexican food, mmm (margarita would have made it better).  Then, we finished the night by going to see What To Expect When You're Expecting!  Although it didn't get great reviews, we both thought it was hilarious!  However, I will say it is quite difficult to sit in a movie theater chair when you're this pregnant...very uncomfortable.

Miss Anything?  Laying on my belly!

Movement?  He is so rambunctious!  I can't wait to see the little face of that busy boy inside of me.   When I jump in the pool each day, he definitely reacts with a surprised stretch as I hit the cold water, so cute!   My ribs have officially become his kicking target...I'm hoping he won't be popping any of them out of place!  I can't even imagine what it will feel like if he stays in there for another month just getting bigger & stronger...

Food Cravings:  To keep with my recent love of breakfast foods, I have been on a cinnamon roll kick.  Saw a picture of some while flipping through my Cooking Light magazine a couple weeks ago, and I haven't stopped thinking about them since.  So now we have Pancake Saturday & Cinnamon Roll Sunday in the Keenan house!

Food Aversions:  Nothing that I can think of.  Appetite has decreased a little bit.

Symptoms:  Rib pain, back pain, & heartburn.  I now have the Costco size container of Tums!  Assorted berry are the best, and are being consumed like candy these days.  I'm also starting to have a contraction here or there...quite exciting!

Staying Active?  Oh yes!  Still in the pool 5 days a week and getting my 1.5 mile swim in under an hour!  I'm really hoping to keep this up until the very end.  Conor asked my doctor if I should be slowing down (a lot of people actually ask me this question,) but she said that as long as I'm comfortable and staying well hydrated it is fine and, in fact, very good for me & the baby!

Belly Button: The strangest looking thing I ever did see! But no "turkey-timer".

Happy or Moody? Very happy, especially as Liam's arrival gets closer.  However, I did have an issue with a banker at Wells Fargo over a stupid fee and almost started crying in front of him!

Nursery Progress:  As mentioned earlier, we purchased a chair for the nursery.  We ended up buying a rocker/recliner because they are so comfortable!  I've already put some good time in on the chair looking through all the books I'll soon be reading to Liam.  Conor finished refurbishing the piece of furniture we got off the side of the road.  The nursery is almost complete except for a few picture frames I want to put on the wall.  Then I will finally post pictures of the finished product!  I also washed all of Liam's clothes and cloth diapers this week, so everything is prepped and ready.

Looking Forward To:  Finishing up our birth classes & taking a tour of the birthing center at the hospital.  These may not seem super exciting to anyone else, but they will make us one step closer to welcoming little Liam to the world! :-)
