Pregnancy Update: 36 Weeks

Leave a Comment

I am 36 weeks pregnant, the baby will be here in 4 weeks! Reality is starting to set in and i'm not even going to lie I am terrified of giving birth! I have been trying to do this update all week, but the third trimester has sucked all the energy out of me. I feel like its the 1st trimester all over again to be honest! Just last month I was waking up everyday, getting dressed and putting make up on and now all I want to do is sleep and eat but I am still exercising!

What it feels like to be this close to meeting my son is just so hard to even put to words. I can tell you right now I am ready and as much I would love to carry to term, I am secretly hoping he make a bit of a early arrival! I don't only want to meet him but I can't wait to get my body back! Even though it will technically still be his.

I feel like my breast have not gotten any bigger at all and the only thing that has gotten huge on my body is my belly. I have been keeping pretty good weight and I barely started gaining extra like a week ago.  Every month has been 4lbs a month and nothing more but this month I got a bit of a increase!

Right now I am LOVING my exercise ball! I don't know about you but I have been getting major pelvic pain like a soreness that wouldn't go away but moving around and excising on the ball had helped so much that I hardly have the pain anymore.

I have been craving a lot of sweets which is why I think I have been gaining a few extra pounds but I quickly went to the grocery store and stocked up on some fruits and veggies.

I did not do a 3d ultrasound with my baby because I want to be surprised by his features, even though I already know he will look just like his father but you never know!

Through out this pregnancy I have not been the type of pregnant lady to feel connected to the baby already but I know I will instantly fall in love with him when he arrives and i hold him for the first time.

I have been so motivated in planning out my families future cause I want my son to experience life in a way I didn't. So I will be going to back to school really soon and my husband will be going back to get his masters.

My sex drive has been high but let me tell you all how awkward it is. I am use to being able to move around a lot more and since one movement causes me to breath hella hard its just too much! Good think I am the sex crazy one in my relationship though my husband has been surviving and I am so glad he doesn't pressure me for it.

My babies hiccups are super strong, my whole belly moves its a little uncomfortable but I am kinda loving it. His kicks and stretches are not that bad until he pushes on a nerve or my cervix. I haven't had a lot of Braxton Hicks at all but I so nervous about what the contractions will really feel like.

I have started nesting and after my baby shower I found my self organizing everything and getting is all ready. It was so weird falling asleep and waking up with a bassinet next to the bed. I just stared at it and smiled cause he will be in there soon! Its so unreal but real at the same time. I am really excited for my husband to  meet him and experience him. I feel like Its hard for him to really connect also cause he isn't the one who is pregnant, but like I said when we both see him he will fall in love!

Well that is it for my update. I hope you all enjoyed this post! Have some questions? Comment below and I will get a answer to you as soon as I see it! XOXO
