How far along: 36 weeks Countdown to EDD: 4 weeks/28 days Baby is the size of a: Honeydew. Baby is getting very close to being able to breathe on his own (or maybe he can already). Most organs are fully functional now.
Physical symptoms:Not too many, just very uncomfortable. My chest/upper bump is still sore and there's a lot more pressure on my crotch and butt. Mood: Good. Anxious.
Total Weight Gain/Loss:Forgot to check. I would guess somewhere between +20-25 lbs, so perfectly "normal".
Maternity clothes:Duh. Plus my yoga pants.
Sleep:Still pretty good. Every now and then the baby gets into a position where it feels like he sinks to one side and that hurts, but otherwise I'm comfortable and sleeping well.
Best moment of the week: Every moment. I'm pregnant and Seth is off and we're getting so close to meeting our son. Even if it wasn't literally the week before Christmas, I think it would feel that way. I'm so happy and excited.
Movement: Still wild. He's really stretchy today.
Food cravings/aversions: Nothing new.
Labor signs:I have some pre-labor signs - at my appointment on Thursday, I was 60% effaced and dilated 1.5 cm. My doctor thought this looked good for where I am. I'm excited that I'm making progress but, of course, I hope he hangs out in there for a few more weeks.
What I miss:Being in control of my own body. Or maybe I mean being selfish with my own body. I just want to eat what I want and sit how I want for a little bit.
What I am looking forward to:Everything: time off with Seth, Christmas and our baby's arrival. Also, we're having maternity/family pictures taken today!
Milestones: 37 weeks - in one week, baby will be considered early-term instead of pre-term so that sounds important. Showing yet: I can't go anywhere without people commenting on my bump and asking questions. I got my first "you look ready to pop" comment this weekend but I don't really care because I feel like I'm ready to pop.
