Baby No. 3 :: 36 Week Bump Update

6:36:00 AM


36 weeks! Holy moly Batman! This little one is getting so close to being out of my tummy and into my arms and I am just SO excited! The past month has been a roller coaster of emotions however, because she has been breeched for all of it. I never had any issues with positioning with either of my boys, so I have been in totally new territory this past month.

If you don't know already, I had a home birth with my second son and it was literally one of the most amazing experiences of my life (you can read about it here). So when I found out this baby was breeched, I was devastated. There would go any chance of delivering again at home. Rather, I would most likely have to have a C-section, which has been one of my worst fears since being pregnant with my first baby. I know so many women have them and everything is wonderful, and of course, the most important thing is just getting this baby out safely, but that operating room scares the poop out of me.

Well, I had an ultrasound appointment this past week to measure her growth and make sure she was healthy and looking good and to the miraculous glory of God this sweet baby was head down!!!! My heart was so happy it could have jumped right out of my chest. I have been doing all of these things to get her to flip (chiropractor twice a week, cat/cow, cleaning on my hands and knees, inverting myself off the couch...you name it, I'm sure I tried it lol) and praying so so much for the Lord to just help this baby get into a good position. If your baby is not in a good position or you just want to make sure you body is a little bit more ready for labor you have to check out the website www.spinningbabies.com It was so helpful and had great advice.

How far along? 36 weeks, 2 days
Total weight gain+29 pounds
Maternity clothes? Yes and No
Stretch marks? none
Sleep: Have had a few good nights here and there, but for the most part just too uncomfortable and wake up a bunch throughout the night.
Best moment of this weekFinding out baby is head down! Greatest piece of news I could have ever received after everything we have been through this past month.
Miss Anything? Sleep + Being able to sit without a foot or knee up in my rib cage.
Movement: Yes, so much, but I can tell she is starting to run out of room in there.
Food cravings: Chocolate + Peanut Butter
Anything making you queasy or sick? Not today..
Have you started to show yet? Duh
Gender: girl
Labor Signs? none yet, but after a long day at work my stomach gets really tight. Trying to take lots of baths and just relax/sit down as much as possible to keep her in there a little longer.
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time? More emotional than anything. Everything lately has been making me super weepy. Too. Many. Hormones.
Looking forward to? Getting the nursery totally complete and then just having her here. As much as I want her to stay in there so I can take care of all of my clients, I am so so ready to meet this little girl. 



Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7
