*How big is baby?: Baby weighs over 5 1/4 lbs and is over 18 inches long. Baby is the size of a honeydew melon.
*Sleep?: Up once a night about 4 am to use the bathroom. Thankfully I can fall right back to sleep!
*Best moment this week?: Another healthy report at the Dr. and hitting the 35/35 milestone! 35 days (hopefully less) to go!
*Food cravings?: Lately I’ve been wanting some kind of “sweet” in the afternoons.
*What I miss: Running and cute summer clothes. It’s been hot and I wish I could feel good in shorts and tank tops!
*What I’m looking forward to: Finishing painting the crib! I got the dresser done!
I must have hit the “oh my gosh I am so not ready” stage because I did a huge Amazon purchase of all of the necessities. Diapers, breastmilk storage bags, nursing pads, changing table liners, sound machine for Baby #2, etc. I also washed a ton of baby clothes last weekend. I have 1 drawer for “gender neutral” onesies and jammies, and one drawer with a few boy and a few girl options all ready to go.
I also washed up the swing and Rock N Play and set up the Pack N Play in the living room, which will be our diaper changing station. I’m glad I did this early because Hayden constantly wants “in” so hopefully he’ll get that out of his system before the baby needs “in” haha!
Totally random but my belly button is such a strange shape this time and has kind of popped out. That never happened with Hayden. And this time I don’t have that dark line down my belly like I did with Hayden.
Dr. C said I’m measuring perfectly and baby is head down! She actually said I don’t need to come back for 2 weeks (what?!) so my next appointment will be at 37 weeks and we’ll go over all the birth day stuff. I can’t believe it’s already going to be that time!
I have just been assuming that this baby is going to come early beings Hayden did, but I know I need to get that out of my head. I could very well go over my due date this time, so I need to prepare for that.
