Pregnancy Update – 36 Weeks

1 more week till I’m full term and just 4 weeks till my due date.  I can’t be more excited and ready to meet this new little person.  I’m also anxious to see if we are having a girl or a boy!  When I let people know that we don’t know the sex, they always take a guess on what it is.  For a long time the guesses were mostly girl but at about 25 weeks the guesses went to all boy.  Now, we are back to girl.  This baby is confusing everyone and not even I have a clear gut instinct on what I’m having.

36 weeks


I did go out and buy my two coming home outfits.  I love penguins and went with the same theme for both onesies.  My mother in law bought the baby a special Christmas outfit if it’s born on the holiday or before.  It’s so cute and the hat is a Christmas tree.

36 weeks pregnant with Lucas

I didn’t get to the gym at all during Week 35 because Lucas was sick.  He had both strep throat and the stomach flu so we were house-bound for the week.  He is finally feeling better and I’m happy it’s in time for Thanksgiving.

How far along? 36 weeks + 2 days
Maternity clothes?  Rocking 2 pairs of pants and a handful of shirts.  I have one dress that still fits and I plan on wearing it for Thanksgiving, Christmas and the hub’s work party.  Is it sad that I’m excited for his work party?  We always go out to dinner in NYC and I haven’t been there in over 6 months!
Symptoms: Contractions, pressure, hip pain, fatigue…pretty much everything!
Miss Anything? It’s not that I’m missing anything now it’s more what I’m looking forward too.  Now that I’m close to the end, I’m excited to fit in real clothes, go shopping, run without pain/discomfort and sign up for Spring races.
Food cravings:  Still clementines.  I’m eating meat everyday and it definitely helps with the fatigue/anemia.  I’m not that hungry anymore so I have to remind myself to eat at each meal time.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Have you started to show yet: Still have a crazy big fundal height and at 36 weeks, I am measuring 39.
