36 weeks, how did that happen so quickly? We had our final ultrasound yesterday and it was confirmed that #babyt3 is still a she and our one and only hint for you on the name is #babyS ;) We have went back and forth for so long on the name we have come to an agreement!! YAY
The tech estimated babyS is 6lbs 2oz. At this stage in my first pregnancy I delivered in 3 days from now and he was 5lbs 5oz and with my second pregnancy I delivered in 8 days fom now and he was 5lbs even...so when she said 6lbs + I was shocked!! I know that is still a small baby but this entire pregnancy has been so different so I shouldn't be surpprised. So anxious to see how close those guesses are! This unknown of if she will come early like her brothers or if she will stay put longer. I have slowed down significantly on my workouts as my doula encouraged me to keep baby in until 37 weeks and as a good friend of mine put it, my body doesn't need much convincing to go into labor!! So to be prepared I am using raspberry leaf tea for my uterus, evening primrose oil and dates for my cervix!! Prayers are greatly appreciated as we approach out babies arrival and our attempt for a vbac2c!
How far along – 36 weeks

Favorite moment this week- Seeing babyS on the big screen
Miss Anything: sleeping, breathing easy, not feeling the need to pee every 2 minutes (ha) can you tell my body is maxing out??
Food cravings- My appetite has been VERY hit or miss, mainly I have craved fruit
Anything making you queasy or sick- Perfume or strong smells and getting too hot

Gender- She is still a she!!! YAY
Belly Button in or out- Oh my...I feel like my belly button is going to just rip in half but it is still in
Other Notes: The constant thought of wandering when she will come is making this momma CRAZY!!!
Exercise: Down to 2-3 a week now, more walking and keeping active than actual full workouts. Squats are my bff!!
