36 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #3

18 Weeks
Last week I turned 36 weeks! Technically as I write this I'm 37 weeks, so baby is considered early term! In other words, it would be just fine if I went into labor today. :)

Here's my 36 week pregnancy update:

Weight this week: 136.6 pounds - up almost 6 pounds from 32 weeks! I'm not sure why my weight gain has increased so much lately...

I actually forgot to take my measurements last week, so these are my 37 week measurements:

Measurement around waist: 31 1/2"

Measurement around belly: 37 1/2"-3/4" - almost exactly the same as my last two pregnancies!

How big is baby? Baby weighs about 6 pounds, and is 18 1/2" long. My midwife estimated that the baby is about 5-5 1/2 pounds, and long. It definitely feels long to me! 😅

Maternity Clothes: Nothing new - it's getting so close that any new clothes would only fit me for a few weeks anyway.

House Update

Last time we chatted about the house, we were still getting the dirt work done. You can read all about the beginning stages in Part 1 HERE.

32 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #3

18 Weeks
Last week I turned 32 weeks! I decided to wait until this week to update y'all since I had a midwife appointment scheduled...

So here's my 32 week pregnancy update:

Weight this week: 130.8 pounds - up almost 3 pounds from 28 weeks!

Measurement around waist: 30" - weirdly down 1/2" since last time...

Measurement around belly: 36 1/4" - up 2 1/4 inches from 4 weeks ago.

How big is baby? Baby weighs about 3 3/4 pounds, and is about 16.7 inches long from head to heel. About the size of a (large) jicama!

Maternity Clothes: Nothing new to report here! But I did buy a few clothes for the postpartum recovery period. I hope they fit!

Movement: This kid seriously kicks so much and so hard. He/she has found my ribs...fun. So I get kicked in the ribs and the bladder at the same time now. When I go to bed is when the kicking really ramps up, and it takes at least half an hour or more for the baby to fall asleep. 😩
