Wow- it's been quite a long time! I'm now 36 weeks and I can hardly believe it! I really never thought I'd ever get to the end of the pregnancy- it seemed like it would just go on forever. At the very most, Baby should be born no later than 4 weeks from now (hopefully sooner)? I am so ready to have this baby and meet our child for the first time!
Up til now, whenever I envision Baby, I just have such a hard time imagining the face. I am so excited just to see Baby's face. There's already a strong connection that Baby and I have, but seeing Baby's face will make such a big difference to me, I think. I can't wait. It's like waiting for Christmas x 100...
I'm feeling fairly ok still, although I have up and down days. Sleeping is the hardest part because I have a lot of pelvic girdle pain as the ligaments are stretching to allow for maximum flexibility when Baby is on the way through. It's so hard to find a comfortable position when sleeping. I find that sometimes I need to change positions at night every 15 minutes to alleviate the pressure. It can be very painful and does not make for a good night's sleep. I'm quite slow, too, haha. I walk like an old lady, everyone else seems like they are moving so fast. That part I don't mind so much. The world moves too fast anyway, so I can afford to slow down- there's nowhere I really need to be except where I happen to be at any given moment, at this point.
I'm so big now that I really feel ready for Baby to come. Baby weighed in at 3.6 kg (about 8 lbs!!!) this week, and is probably going to be on the big side when delivery day comes! It's a little daunting to hear that Baby is already so big, but I'd rather that than a sickly, underweight little one. :)
Contractions are coming almost every night now. They aren't really painful, just a little uncomfortable. I am looking forward to the real ones, if you can believe it, because that will mean Baby is coming! :)
