I'm sooooooo tiiiiiiired. Right now it's 9:55pm and I can hardly keep my eyes open. Working full-time, helping to take care of Logan, and all the other things I do (laundry, grocery shopping, etc.) is starting to wear on me. I've been having trouble getting comfortable in bed at night too, which has kept me from sleeping very well.
*I just fell asleep on the couch*
Back to my post... I had my 36 week checkup today and it went well. My blood pressure was great, I only gained another pound, and he was happy with everything. Baby is head-down and her heart sounded good. He had to do the Group B Strep swab, which was anything but pleasant but it's over with now and I'm just waiting for the results.
Contractions: I've been feeling some little ones throughout the week. Nothing consistent, though.
Cravings: Nothing this week.
Weight: My total is up to 28 lbs
Swelling: My feet are still puffy, especially in the evening.
Things to do: Buy furniture
and other items from my registry (Target), pre-make meals, pack the
hospital bag, pack a small bag for Logan, reinstall the infant car seat,
Heartburn: It is under control but only because of my friend Zantac.
Stretching: The top of my stretch marks (from Logan) are stretching a bit, but nothing other than that. I'm just trying to figure what to put on the rest of my super dry skin. It hurts :(.
Baby has been very active, as usual, and now I know that it's really her butt and feet sticking out the side of my belly ;).
*I just fell asleep on the couch again*
This is out of control :). Anyway, I might only have a couple weeks left before she arrives so I'm feeling more of a sense of urgency. With that being said, I'll be closing my ExpectNet baby pool on my birthday, November 25th. If you still want to enter a guess, you'll have until then... so guess!
Well, I've fallen asleep about 5 times (or more) in the 30 minutes I've been trying to write this post. I think that's a clear sign that I need to go to bed. Well played, baby.
Doctor appointments are now weekly, so I'll update after my appointment next week.
