The Home Stretch!

16 Dec

This past Friday I hit the 36 week mark.  I’m finally feeling like I’ve reached the end!  I know I still have a few more weeks to go but the end is in sight.   Here is what I currently look like:


As you can see, most of my shirts won’t fully cover my belly anymore.  It is a definite struggle to get dressed in the mornings!

For comparison, here is what I looked like at 36 weeks with Annaliese:


I am SO much bigger this time around!  I’m much more uncomfortable too.  I remember feeling pretty good up until the end the first time.  This time I’m having a really tough time sleeping.  I feel like the baby dropped this weekend because I have a ton of pressure in my hips and lower back.  He has also started use my sciatic nerve as a punching bag 😦  I can’t complain too much though.  I’m up and moving around and still able to keep up with Annaliese!   Time is also going by pretty quickly with all of the holiday craziness too.  He’ll be here before I know it!

I’m headed to my 36 week appointment with the OB today.  I’m hoping he’ll tell me that the baby is head down.  They also want to send me for some more blood work this week since my platelet levels looked low last time.  Hoping to get some good news there too!

I’ll update more soon.  At the rate I’ve been updating though, the next post might be about a new baby.  We’ll see!
