Well, I am thinking this will probably be my last post before our little man gets here!! We are winding down this pregnancy journey and I am really looking forward to meeting our baby boy very soon. I am officially on maternity leave for the next 16 weeks and am doing everything I can to try and enjoy it. I have been really sick with a sinus infection for the past 5 days and FINALLY got put on an antibiotic to try and help with it. I've said it before, but this pregnancy has been so tough on me, I pray every day that God would give us a safe and easy delivery.
How Far Along: 36 Weeks
Weight Gain: 24 lbs.
Maternity Clothes: Yep!! And I don't care if I ever see them again ;)
Stretch Marks: Amazingly NO. I feel so much bigger with this baby than I did with Reese.
Best Moment: I hate to say there isn't one, because I've been so sick. But Reese has been sick with a cough and ear infection, I don't sleep at all, and my shortness of breath continues to get a little worse everyday. With all that being said, I am grateful for this guys twists and turns in my stomach. I'm trying to savor every movement as this will be the last baby I have. (unless the Lord has other plans) I will say it was a relief to hear his heart beating so strong when I went into the doctor for the second time in 3 days. I worry that me being so sick has affected him, but he seemed to be doing good.
Miss Anything: Too much to list. :)
Movement: He moves all the time!! Literally, ALL THE TIME. People can just stare at my belly and watch it deform. I believe he's going to be the one that keeps me on my toes!!
Food Cravings: None. As all pregnant women know, when you get to that last month, there is no room anywhere to store food, therefore nothing sounds good.
Anything Make You Sick: Nothing in particular, but I'm really not eating that much.
Belly In/Out: Oh, it's out there!!!
Happy/Moody: It depends on the day. The last 5 days have been filled with me being so sick, I don't blame anyone for not wanting to be around me. Other than that, I am happy. Happy that we are about to be a family of 4 and happy that I am about to be NOT PREGNANT anymore.
Looking Forward To: Another baby shower for Big Man, and of course getting to meet him very, very soon!!!
