as we are nearing the beginning of the end, the doctor claimed me officially at 36 weeks and said i better start prepping as if i have 4 weeks left… so we will skip right over week 34 and now call this the end of week 36!
i FINALLY feel like a big, pregnant lady. starting to get just about every ache, pain, and symptom I have been lucky enough to avoid…. until now. continuing with the rib and hip pain, my hands are beginning to get “pregnancy carpel tunnel”, my bladder is the size of a pea, I’m getting zero sleep at night and the thought of being comfortable is just a memory. also, i’ve been on heartburn medicine since week 12 (i was one of those lucky ones that got heartburn really early…) but now I’m also on digestive medicine since i have zero appetite and can’t digest almost anything i eat. yay??
i just keep reminding myself how blessed i am to be able to experience this and to be creating such a miracle….
we also had our LAST ultrasound this week 😦 but Baby H seems to be perfectly healthy, in great position and looks like he will be arriving right on time! the doctor measured him at 6lbs 10oz right now and is estimating him to be about 8.5 full term. sounds perfect to me!
look at those lips!! so handsome already.
also, i forgot to post these gems from our newborn care class. it was so great seeing P swaddle our dummy baby, change diapers, etc. he is going to be such a wonderful dad!
