Bump Watch :: 36 Weeks

9 months along!!

How far along: 36 weeks

Size of Baby: 18.75 in & 5.75 lb

Fruit/vegetable comparison: Crenshaw Melon

Total weight gain: 26 lbs (almost 27)

Sleep:   This has still been better!  I only wake up about once a night now with some indigestion which is so much better then it has been.  I don't know if you can tell in this picture but I do think Maggie is a little lower which has helped so much with this issue!

Movement:  It seems like I can feel every movement now that she's bigger.  Since she doesn't have as much room I can even feel her tiny movements.  I have had a few kicks/punches that have taken my breath away too.  I don't mind though!  I think I may have felt hiccups one time this week too. 

Unglamorous body changes: I'm definitely getting more swollen!  I wore some tall socks with my boots the other day and when I took them off you could totally see a major indention of where they were.  I also had to take my engagement ring off since it's a thicker band but am still wearing my wedding band (even though it's a little tight).

What I miss: Probably having more energy to get things done.  I'm still waiting for that nesting phase to kick in... :)

Milestones: She's getting closer and closer to being able to breathe on her own.  Her skin is getting smooth and soft and her gums are rigid.  Her liver and kidneys are in working order.  Circulation and immune systems are basically good to go, too.  (the

Best moment this week: I had a doctors appointment yesterday where he checked me for the first time and she's definitely still head down!  They also did the Group B Strep test which I'll find out next week if that came back negative.  We also got a lot of things done this weekend like exchanges from previous showers, went to a gorgeous wedding shower and worked on the nursery some more.  We've started putting things together like the swing, humidifier, etc and we hung the curtains finally!  Still have to put all the decor up on the walls and organize.  Then I think we'll be done finally!  We also borrowed a friends carseat to put in the car until the one we ordered comes in (which is after my due date).  Also wanted to mention that I've been getting a few Braxton Hick's everyday!
Looking forward to: I need to pack my hospital bag this week!  I can't believe that I'm already too that point.  I feel like I have so much organizing to get done.  So my goal is just that this week... get organized!  And closing out our registries this coming weekend.


  1. I'm getting the bigger kicks too. Some of them hurt! We built our swing this weekend, as well. Yay for getting things together!

  2. You are the cutest pregnant lady! Love that bump! And can't wait to "meet" Maggie soon.

  3. I am getting so excited for you!! You are on the downhill slope now and she could be here any day (hopefully not for a few more weeks though). Glad your sleeping is getting better and try and prop your feet up on something at work, see if that helps with the swelling at all.

  4. I'm a new follower! Congratulations on your sweet little girl...she'll be here soon! :) I had a baby boy in May, motherhood is the BEST gift! :)

  5. Yay, yay, yay! You're soooo close! I started nesting weeks ago- my poor husband!

  6. You look so lovely! Excited that you are getting so close. :)

  7. Hi Lindsey! Just hopped over to your blog and saw that your a fellow Kansan! I went to KU so although I hate those kitty cats and am a Jayhawk for life, I still wanted to say congrats on the baby! You look great and I'm so excited for you. :)


I'd love to hear from you!
