36 Week Belly Pics

I'm playing catch-up with my blog posts, so I only have pics for this week. But I've reached the 9 month mark, so that's a pretty big milestone! I'm also on maternity leave...hooray!

35 Weeks

How far along? 35 weeks and 0 days

Baby’s Size: 18 inches

Baby’s Weight: 5 1/4 pounds

Development: Baby's kidneys are fully developed and his liver can process some waste. He is running out of room in there, and I'm feeling every twist and turn.

Weight gain/loss: I'm up about 38 pounds...yikes. I'm vowing to eat healthier and work out more once I'm on maternity leave!

Best moment this week? I had my second baby shower on Friday. My coworkers threw me a little shindig.

Symptoms: Stuffy nose, allergies, back and rib pain, leg cramps, fetal movement, swollen ankles & feet, indigestion, and awful round ligament pain

Food cravings/aversions: I crave fruit, cereal, and carbs in general.

What I'm looking forward to: 1 more week of teaching and then my maternity leave starts. I'm hoping this baby comes a little bit early so I have more time with him this summer before I have to start school again.

34 Week Belly Pic

Here is a picture of my bulbous belly this week. It gets in the way and causes me quite a bit of pain at times, but I kind of like it. I love that it's perfectly round and not lumpy. :)

33 Weeks

How far along? 33 weeks and 0 days

Baby’s Size: 17 - 17 1/2 inches

Baby’s Weight: Just over 4 pounds

Development: Baby's lungs are almost completely mature. The bones in his skull are soft and pliable so he can make it through the birth canal. He is continuing to put on 1/2 a pound per week.

Weight gain/loss: I seem to have gained 3 pounds this week...oops. I blame the treats (see below). Up 31 pounds overall.

Best moment this week? This was Teacher Appreciation Week, so I got lots of various treats and gifts from my students each day, which was really nice.

Symptoms: Stuffy nose, allergies, severely swollen feet & ankles, back and rib pain, dry skin, fetal movement, indigestion, thirsty & chapped lips

Food cravings/aversions: I can't seem to get enough fruit. Tonight I am craving bananas and peanut butter, but we are out of bananas. Tomorrow my husband is taking me to a breakfast place that serves peanut butter and banana pancakes--I can't wait!!

What I'm looking forward to: Going into labor...is that weird??

Milestones: My wedding rings have officially been retired since they are getting too tight. We bought a cheap replacement set on Overstock.com and they are lovely!

32 Weeks

How far along? 32 weeks and 0 days

Baby’s Size: 17 inches

Baby’s Weight: 4 pounds

Development: Baby is busy blinking, looking around, grabbing things, making faces, practicing his breathing, peeing and listening to everything around him. He will gain about a 1/2 pound per week for the rest of my pregnancy.

Weight gain/loss: I lost almost a pound this week, which I'm happy about. I'm still under 30 pounds of weight gain...yay!

Best moment this week? My co-workers are planning a shower for me on May 20, so I'm super excited that I get another shower! I'm also excited that I only have 4 more weeks of teaching before my maternity leave!

Symptoms: Stuffy nose, terrible allergies, back and rib pain, leg cramps, dry skin, lots of fetal movement, swollen ankles, feet, and hands, indigestion, cleaning/nesting

Food cravings/aversions: Still the same--I crave fruit and sweets, and I despise vegetables.

What I'm looking forward to: Our Baby Care class is May 8!
