36 week Pregnancy update
Today we are officially 36 weeks pregnant!! So exciting! We had an appointment this week and are officially to the point where we will see the doctor every week until this little one decides to arrive! Since our last appointment 2 weeks ago I have gained 2lbs, so we are officially at 31 lbs total. So we are still on track to stay under our goal! We also had our Group B Strep (GBS) test this week and will find out the results from that test next week. Essentially, if I am positive, I will need to have antibiotics to make sure I don’t pass it on to our little one during delivery, but we’ll cross that road then.
In my post from last week, I hadn’t been really nesting. However, this past week I have been in overtime. I don’t remember the last time my house was this clean.
Earlier this week I scrubbed the bathroom floor three times, yes THREE, because until then I didn’t feel like it was clean enough. I also had the urge to scrub the walls in the bathroom and the kitchen too.
I am also getting everything together. All of her clothes are officially washed and put away and her hospital bag is completely packed. I have Andrew and mine’s bag halfway done.
I also feel like I’m reverting back to my 1st trimester. I am constantly sleepy and have to pee every 5 seconds again. I have also been having a lot more contractions. They are turning recently (past 4-5 days) from just the tightening to the crampy/menstrual feeling too. I’m glad things are moving along and progressing, but still hoping she stays in there a little longer.
On a happy note! I also became an auntie again! My sister had a new baby girl on Tuesday, making me an auntie to three beautiful little nieces!!
Until next week……
