Bumps & Braids: Weeks 36 & 37
How far along? 36 Weeks! Officially 8 months pregnant and only ONE month to go!! I seriously can’t believe how quick it is coming up!
How Big is baby? As big as a Papaya! Crazy to think he is pretty much ready to come into this world!
Weight Gained? 1 pound!
Maternity clothes? It’s getting a bit chillier so sweatshirts have been my go to this week!
Stretch marks? None
Sleep? Sleep has been SO terrible and so my sweet and amazing husband surprised me and bought me a pregnancy pillow!! I slept like a baby the night he gave it to me! Sleep has been so much better since. EVERY pregnant momma needs to get one of these ASAP!
Best moment this week? Brandon and I went and got a couples massage at Massage Envy this week and it was nice to get some relief from my pregnancy pain! This was the second massage I have gotten while pregnant though and to be honest I was a little disappointed in the quality of the massage. The massage therapists working on Brandon and I talked the whole time, and my therapist lost track of time and didn’t finish my massage before our hour was up. A massage is always nice though so I can’t complain too much! Brandon and I also went on a drive up in the mountains to see the leaves change! It was beautiful and made me so excited for fall!
Miss Anything? Not being in pain! Things are getting SOOO uncomfortable and painful!
Movement? He’s starting to run out of room, but still loves to kick me in the ribs! Thanks baby!
Anything making you queasy or sick? I haven’t been feeling super well this week. My Braxton hicks have started to make me feel nauseous!
Cravings? Frozen Yogurt and Hamburgers! I can’t wait to eat a big cheeseburger as soon as my gallbladder is out!!
Labor Signs? Having more frequent braxton hick contractions and they are getting more painful!
Symptoms? Hip and pelvic pain, and leg cramps!
Belly Button in or out? Outtie!
Wedding rings on or off? Still on!
Happy or Moody most of the time? Since I haven’t been feeling super well I haven’t been super happy!
Looking forward to? My Family/Friend baby shower next week!! My mom is going all out for this shower and it’s going to be so much fun!
This weeks braid? I have been putting my hair into side pony tails this week and barely braiding the first part of the pony tail and leaving the rest out. I have also loved putting my hair in high pony tails for a quick hair style!
I had my baby shower this week and these are some fun pictures from it! My sweet mom went all out on the decorations and it turned out so cute! I’m so grateful to everyone who came and helped put in any way! And to everyone who has shown baby and me their love and support!
How far along? 37 Weeks! Less than a month left now…I’m getting so excited and nervous!
How Big is baby? A honeydew melon! My belly is SO huge I just can’t believe it can get any bigger!
Weight Gained? 2 pounds!
Maternity clothes? I have worn this dress A LOT over the past two weeks (don’t judge hahaha) It’s just so comfy and flattering and EASY! I don’t have to put much effort to look put together!
Stretch marks? None
Sleep? Sleep has been getting worse, BUT this week I went and got another massage at Salt Lake City Prenatal Massage and Birthing Community Center and it helped a ton.
Best moment this week? This week was actually really great! Like I mentioned before I went and got another prenatal massage and this one was HEAVEN!! The one I got at massage envy seemed even worse after I got this one! They had special pillows so I could lay on my belly and it WAS amazing! I can’t wait to get another one (hoping to go back one more time before baby is born! It’s so worth it, trust me!)
I also had my Family/Friend baby shower this week! My mom decorated everything SOO cute in a woodland theme with teepee’s, feathers, arrows, woodland animals and other fun outdoors decorations! Brandon and my brother even made me a Teepee to sit under. I am so amazed and overwhelmed by all the love and support everyone showed baby and I! I feel so much more ready to be here now!
Miss Anything? Sleep!!
Movement? Still moving around like crazy!
Anything making you queasy or sick? This week I have felt pretty good! yay!
Cravings? We got the cutest cookies from Beehive Bakery for my shower and I wanted one SO bad!! Have I mentioned how I cannot wait to get my gallbladder out so I can eat normal again??
Gender? Baby Boy!
Labor Signs? I have had LOTS of contractions this week! Some have been super close together and painful, but not enough to go into the hospital! I am just ready for this baby to be here so this false labor is torture!
Symptoms? Lots of pressure in my pelvis and leg cramps!
Belly Button in or out? Out!
Wedding rings on or off? Still on!
Happy or Moody most of the time? Very happy this week!!
Looking forward to? Getting babies nursery complete this week! Now I have had my last baby shower, we can get everything else we need and really get ready for him to be here!
This weeks braid? I braided a small section of my bangs and decided to keep braiding almost to the ends of my hair. I love long curls, but this is a great way to mix things up but still keeping the pretty long curls!
Thanks for reading this weeks Bumps and Braids Beauties! I can’t believe we only have 3 updates left until baby is here (if he doesn’t come sooner!!) I am so grateful to all of you for coming along on this journey with me!
