Size of Baby as Relative to Common Household Fruit or Vegetable: Baby is the size of a honeydew melon and is about 18 inches long!
Weight Gain: 25 lbs!
Gender: Sweet little girl
Movement: More movement this week than last. It's so crazy to see so much movement from the outside. She is head down, way down according to my ultrasounds, and something-I think her leg is practically choking me when I'm sitting up. Other than that slight discomfort she's been very gentle on me.
Worst moment of the week: I had a cold Monday through Thursday and it was miserable. I was so out of sorts and uncomfortable. 35 weeks pregnant + head cold = not desirable.
I can hardly believe that we have made it to September and now, 36 weeks. It feels amazing and hard to believe. Now, I'm getting some jitters as she could be here so soon. While that was always a possibility, there's now a pressure to get everything "ready" and prepared. Her nursery is livable, but the finishing touches haven't been placed as I haven't been able to get to the stores I want to as I'm still moving a little slow and trying not to push things. All her clothes are organized and newborn cloth diapers are prepped and ready to go.
Thursday is cerclage removal day. I am curious to see how it goes, how the pain is and what results from the procedure!
