36 weeks!



36 WEEKS

HOW BIG IS BABY? 18.66 INCHES WEIGHING 5.78 POUNDS  – ABOUT THE SIZE OF A HONEYDEW!

DEVELOPMENT: BABY RUSH WEIGHS ABOUT 6 POUNDS AND SHE WILL GAIN APPROXIMATELY ONE HALF OF A POUND PER WEEK FROM NOW UNTIL BIRTH. THE PROTECTIVE FAT LAYER WILL MAKE UP ABOUT 15% OF HER WEIGHT AT BIRTH. EVEN THOUGH BABY GIRLS GUMS HAVE RIDGES THAT LOOK A BIT LIKE TEETH, THE REAL ONES OBVIOUSLY DON’T COME OUT UNTIL ABOUT 4 TO 5 MONTHS AFTER BIRTH. HER CHEEKS ARE DEVELOPING FAT. THE CHEEK MUSCLES ARE ALSO DEVELOPING, CREATING TAHT LOVELY CHUBBY APPEARANCE. THERE ISN’T MUCH ROOM TO MOVE AROUND ANYMORE, ALTHOUGH I CAN STILL FEEL HER REGULAR MOVEMENTS.

WEIGHT GAIN: 22 LBS!!

SLEEP: I HAVE BEEN GETTING A LOT OF BRAXTON HICKS CONTRACTIONS AT NIGHT, IT FEELS LIKE REALLY BAD PERIOD CRAMPS ALL OVER MY LOWER BACK AND STOMACH. I’VE BEEN HAVING A LOT OF SLEEPLESS NIGHTS AND I AM VERY EXCITED FOR THE NIGHT THAT I CAN SLEEP COMFORTABLY AGAIN.

MISSING: COMFORT IN MY SLEEP AND NOT HAVING TO PEE EVERY 5 SECONDS.

CRAVING: NOTHING IN PARTICULAR..

FEELING: STRETCHED TO THE MAX!!! I GOT MY FIRST STRETCH MARKS AND IT MAKES ME REALLY SAD. 😦

GENDER: IT’S A GIRL!

BEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: CORY AND I CELEBRATED OUR 2 YEAR ANNIVERSARY ON MONDAY AT IT WAS SUCH A GREAT DAY! CORY BROUGHT ME FLOWERS AND I MADE A LITTLE SCRAP BOOK OF OUR FIRST TWO YEARS AND CORY ALSO WROTE ME THE SWEETEST LETTER THAT BROUGHT TEARS TO MY EYES AND HE ALSO GOT ME A HAMMOCK THAT YOU CAN TIE ON TREES! I’VE BEEN WANTING ONE FOR A LITTLE WHILE FOR OUR DAYS AT THE PARK, SO I AM VERY EXCITED TO USE IT! THIS WEEKEND WE ARE GOING TO FINISH CELEBRATING OUR ANNIVERSARY IN SAVANNAH, GA!

LOOKING FORWARD TO: SAVANNAH THIS WEEKEND!
