Lakeon's Pregnancy Journal: Week 36

Doctor Appointments:

March 13-- Doctor decided to wait until next visit to check my cervix. She estimated Brantley to be around 8 pounds when born.


Food cravings:  Crunchy peanut butter and honey sandwich on multi-grain bread. mmmm!!

Symptoms: For a few days I had a LOT of pressure and was very sore. I've had a few real contractions but nothing regular. I have days here and there where I get tired while walking for a while then other days I go get an entire 2 weeks worth of groceries by myself with my daughter and feel just fine after. I was very swollen for one day and spent the whole next day peeing every few mins or so and the swelling all went down. My belly also is starting to feel really really heavy.

Weight gain: I've gained 35 pounds.

Measurements: (before pregnancy while standing up, it was 32 inches)
(while lying down)Below the navel- 43 inches.
(while lying down)Above the navel- 42 inches.

Sleep: I sleep pretty good now. I don't even need a tums some nights.

What I've been up to the past 2 weeks: We celebrated my daughter's 4th birthday at chuck e cheese and she had a blast! I've been running around trying to get everything done before Brantley comes. All we need for him now is a glider or rocking chair for me to use while breastfeeding.

We are neck and neck, girl. I'm due on April 24th with my 2nd, 36 weeks tomorrow. I loved the I don't even need a Tums some nights comment. I just ran out of my massive bottle of Tums last night and will definitely be making a trip to Target today to get more. :)

Thank you Terra! :)

Becca, Congrats! We're due so close together!! You and I both had those massive bottles. With my last pregnancy I had to eat them all day every day for a little relief. What us women go through for these precious babies.
