Baby Update - 36 weeks

How far along? 36 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 37 lbs :-/

Maternity clothes? I cried the other day because I literally have so little left that fits me now. I feel huge! I have only bought myself two things this pregnancy to wear and have not spent over $30 (which I’m very proud of). But… I feel ugly in everything I put on. I guess that’s normal, but I’m getting to the stage of hating how I look ALL THE TIME! GRrr….

Stretch marks? Not a new one in site, and hopefully with a C-section planned I won’t ever have too.

Sleep: Terrible. I’m just going to leave it at that… terrible.

Movement: All the time and its pure craziness! I can’t believe how this kid has the space to move around in this abdomen of mine. But let me tell you… He or she finds a way. It cracks me up how lop-sided I can be most of the DAY!

QUESTION: I have a question for all you blogger out there that have been preggo before. Did you have this “rug burn” sensation in the center of your belly every time the baby moved? Because I feel that way all the time and I don’t remember feeling that way with Jayden… just thought I would see if someone else had the same problem.

Food cravings: Kit-Kats and turkey hoagies… This is what makes me think I might be having a boy… but who knows!
Gender: What’s your Guess?!

Labor Signs: Off and on, but I think it’s pretty normal around now. I get the “pains” after I’ve done some major house cleaning, long walking, or moving of things. I guess it should be expected.

Belly Button in or out? What do you think?

What I am looking forward to: Just like a few weeks ago I’m really excited to see Jayden with this new little one. After the arrival of my niece and watching how great he is with her… I have no fears that he is going to be a GREAT big brother!

Weekly Wisdom: Take advantage of the time you have with the children/child you already have. I have loved every moment Jayden and I get to cuddle, play, and just be with one another one-on-one. It’s hard to think that it’s not just going to be him and me anymore, but I’m excited to see what this new little one will bring to our amazing little family!

Progression from 20 weeks to 36 weeks…Look at that last picture... I'm a freaking torpedo!

You have THE pefect belly! So stinkin' cute! Can't wait to find out what you're having!!!

Shandell said...

ok Lyryn, go out and buy some clothes that fit. That is my best advice for you. you honestly won't regret it.

I went out at 36 weeks pregnant and bought a $40 pair of maternity jean shorts and it was SO worth it! I felt so much better and I actually wore them a bunch pp as well. Seriously, I never spend that much on clothes but I needed it.

I'm guessing girl, only because everyone I know who is due soon that has found out is having a girl :)

Brodricks said...

It's been amazing to walk through this journey with you. I'm so excited to meet the little one soon!

You still look great! I know you feel terrible but i think that pregnant ladies are so beautiful!

Hang in there!

Emily said...

LOL @ torpedo! :)
I think you look fab!
And, I had the rug burn sensation as well as a lot of other ones...I think it's probably just the baby pressing on nerve endings, etc.
Hang in there!

Carrie said...

How could you feel ugly...look at that gorgeous belly! It's amazing how the body stretches ;) I crave Kit Kats too, haha! Mmmmm! I'm sure you're ready to meet that sweet little baby! I remember when i had a scheduled induction with Emily, savoring that very last night with Alex, knowing it wasn't going to be just him anymore...it goes so fast! He will be a great big brother, and such great friends! Take care...not long now!

A Lil Story said...

Brittany said...

Love the cute belly! I think you're having a girl!

Erin said...

how cute, you just stick straight out ha ha I love it :) Your getting super super close.

Alicia said...

Oh my gosh, I think you look awesome! I mean, I know it's hard to carry all the weight right there and it makes you feel huge all over. But seriously, you have the perfect belly shape, and no fat!!!!

As far the rug burn feeling, I think I know what you're talking about. I think that is your stomach stretching. I could be wrong though. I forget! It's been so long!!

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

You ARE all belly! :) I definitely know the feeling of maternity clothes not fitting toward the end, but you look great mama! It is going to be so sweet to see both your little ones together!

Gina said...

If that baby comes out without a penis, I will be shocked.

I feel ugly a lot too. :( I think you look amazing though!

Amber said...

I had the same feeling with Colyn. I was all belly just like you (I looked like I had a huge Beach Ball in my belly). He stuck his butt out a lot and it was kinda painful. I think you're having a boy! You look great!

Alicia said...

Only 4 more weeks, yay!!! Your little family is growing, I'm sure Jayden is getting excited!

Carol {Everyday Delights} said...

You look amazing! You have such a cute bump!

What did you think of LOST?! I loved it!!

very married said...

congrats on the lack of stretch marks. i've never had kids so maybe it makes sense that what pregnancy would do to my body is a chief concern?
