Baby #2: 36 Weeks

 Christmas Eve
Christmas Day

How Far Along: 36 Weeks as of Christmas Day!

Size of baby: About 18.6 inches long and 6 pounds and gaining an ounce a day!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: +28 pounds. And boy can I tell! I feel like my face is the main place that the extra weight shows! I'm not sure if it's because of the yummy treats I've been eating or that I haven't done a real workout (besides walking) in two weeks but I am definitely gaining quickly at this point.

Maternity Clothes: Yes and I'm ready to be done with them. All of the shirts that I thought were so huge a few months ago are barely long enough to cover the bump.

Gender: A baby girl, Adelyn Elise

Movement: She's become quite active. I feel most of her kicks on my right side right under my ribs. Sometimes she'll stick her foot out and it looks like a huge knot on the side of my stomach.

Symptoms: I'm feeling good overall- just tired and sore. By the end of the day I'm pretty worn out.

Sleep: Insomnia has hit and sleep has been really hit or miss. I hate it because I'm super tired but I just can't sleep. Oh well- I guess it's just preparation for a newborn.

What I miss: I don't necessarily miss anything but I'm definitely ready to meet this little girl and start getting back into shape.

Cravings: Nothing that I can think of

Best Moment This Week: At my last doctor's appointment we learned that she is definitely head down but she is still really high so at this point it doesn't look like she'll be coming anytime soon. I have three small sewing projects to finish for the nursery and it will be DONE! Hopefully I'll be able to share pictures next week. I am really pleased with how it's turned out. Other than that we have just really enjoyed all of the fun Christmas festivities on our last Christmas as a family of three. It's hard to believe that E will only be an only child for a few more weeks!
