Emilie - Thirty Six Weeks!






Today is - Monday July 22nd, 2013

How far along - 36 weeks (and 2 days)                                 

Baby is - A girl! 

Total weight gain - Still hanging out at around 35lbs.

Baby is the size of - A Coconut. 


Whats going on with baby - At the end of this week Emilie will be considered full term and if she is born after Saturday then she won't be a premature baby :) She is gaining about an ounce a day and is currently shedding the vernix that has been keeping her skin protected during the pregnancy. She is head down but still back to back. 

What going on with Mummy - I'm HOT, HOT, HOT. Today is 32 degrees (90 degrees Fahrenheit) and I've decided that it is far too hot for a heavily pregnant woman. 

Maternity clothing - Still living in the sun dresses. Jeans are just too uncomfortable now, plus with the weather I'd rather not turn into a puddle. 

Sleep - Trying to find a comfy position that doesn't aggravate my pelvic pain is the worst part about sleeping. Once I get comfy then I sleep pretty well. Although I'm averaging 1-2 toilet trips a night. One night last week I had to get up 4 times to go! I wasn't impressed with my bladder. 

Movement - Lots of wriggles, with knees and elbows pointing out.. The joys of a back to back baby I guess :)


Food Cravings/Aversions - When it's hot I find it so hard to eat so that's been my biggest problem this week. No real aversions or cravings.

Symptoms -

  • Achiness
  • Braxton Hicks. 
  • Pelvic pain
  • Tiredness


Best moments this week -

  • Knowing that in 5 days Emilie will be full term.
