Little Bit Bit: Week 36

25 Jul

So very tired. So very uncomfortable.

Soooo hot! (Seriously, this weather is ridiculous, and I’m totally over it.)

So ready to have everything in place so I can feel at ease for when Bit Bit comes.

So please excuse my tired face and lifeless hair. After scrubbing purple marker out of the carpet, couch, and chair (!!!!!!) the previous day, I still haven’t recovered and  really didn’t have the energy to worry about such petty things like appearance. Meh.

What is it about 100+ degree weather that just zaps everything out of you? The average for our area is 3 days with temps in the 100′s. This year we’ve had 15. We’re moving to Alaska.

And then add being 8 months pregnant and not sleeping well at night to the mix. Sounds like a party…. :/

Anyway, enough complaining, let’s get this show on the road.

Hello, HUGE!

How far along? 36 Weeks, 2 Days
Total weight gain: up 13.5 lbs
Maternity clothes? …as if I’d be able to fit into anything else at this point.
Stretch marks? no new ones
Sleep: …I’m not even going to justify this one with an answer. Bitter, party of 1.
Best moment this week: Getting the crib mattress for free from a couple at church. SO very thankful! And starting our weekly appointments. We’re getting closer!
Miss Anything? Sleeping, being able to sit comfortably, COOLER WEATHER!
Movement: still lots of movement…and it hurts.
Food cravings: I’m pretty sure I ate my weight in mashed potatoes yesterday. And it was glorious!
Anything making you queasy or sick: mornings, heat.
Labor Signs: No, but I think I am starting to feel some braxton hicks here and there!
Symptoms: Overall? Uncomfortable. My stomach hurts, my feet hurt, my back hurts. I can’t get comfortable to sleep. My heartburn is starting to act up. I just feel so heavy. The only thing I feel like I can’t complain about is that my ankles/feet haven’t swelled up yet. PTL! They did with Lakyn, in the dead of winter, so I’m not sure how I’ve managed to escape this one so far, but I’ll take it!
Belly Button in or out? it’s borderline, folks.
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: Moody. I feel bad about that, but it is what it is I guess.
Looking forward to: Getting the room done……………………

I promise I’ll try to be more chipper next time. Until then, sleep is my mission.

    I think you look beautiful!!! I am sorry you are feeling so crummy. This weather beyond sucks. But just think, soon a beautiful little girl will be in your arms and all will be worth it (take it from someone who constantly complains during pregnancy)!!!
