how far along: 36w5d
size of baby: about 6 lbs, 18.5 inches
total weight gain/loss: +27 lbs! i gained 30 total with canon and 35 with ledger.
maternity clothes: yes...and i'm so sick of my clothes. i've worn the daylights out of them and am tired of wearing the same things each week! hoping for a quick transition back to normal clothes. that awkward, post baby stage is so...awkward.
gender: a sweet boy.
name: knox oliver. i want to make a note that in the beginning the boys and lane referred to him more as ollie, but lately, they've been saying knox or knoxy.
movement: everything i read says movements slow way down by this point. not my kid. if anything i feel he moves more. every evening he comes alive for several hours. i do wonder if his movements have anything to do with all the braxton-hicks contractions i have squishing his habitat. i'm going to miss feeling his sweet moves inside, i know!
sleep: i can't complain too much. i fall asleep easily, then wake up every time i need to flip, but go right back to sleep. i'm sleeping with a pillow into between my legs and can get pretty comfortable with that! i do wake up between 6 and 6:30 each morning ready to go. i wish i'd sleep until the boys woke. i haven't had to set an alarm in forever between my body's cycle and the boys'! i am amazed at the amount of water i drink during the day and especially evenings, and maybe get up once a night to potty...no complaints here!
cravings: desserts and pb&j sandwiches! after not wanting sweets for most of the pregnancy, i'm finding myself baking more!
symptoms: reflux (although not as bad as it has been). pregnancy brain. general aches and pains in my pelvis. i grunt a lot standing up/getting off the couch we've noticed. VERY short of breath! i honestly feel so much better than with ledger.
best moment of the week(s): finishing lots of projects in baby room. packing a hospital bag. finishing up christmas shopping. i have so many lists floating around since my memory doesn't work half the time! having a dr appointments.
i feel like he looks so different in each new picture we get. so anxious to see what his sweet face looks like!
i had a doctor's appointment yesterday. i will miss going to them! we LOVE our office and feel so blessed to have found such a great place and doctor. he's a hoot! i didn't have to have the group b strep test done since i was positive with ledger. once you get a positive, they treat each pregnancy after as positive. i did get checked, though. with as many intense, braxton-hicks i've had, i was anxious to see if they were doing anything. i was 2-3cm. i was 1-2 with ledger for 2 weeks before he was born. i go back in a week. i'm anxious to know if i'll go soon on my own or if he'll hang out awhile like his brothers!
