36 Weeks

Week: 36
Weight gained to-date: 35 lbs
Belly measurement: 40 inches
Estimated Baby size: 5 lbs 9 oz
Swelling: Not yet
Stretch Marks: None yet

How Mommy's feeling: On the first day of the 36th week, I literally woke up and realized that you had dropped overnight! Suddenly, there was more space between my breasts and my belly. My diaphragm felt like it had more space. But sitting for any period of time is a bit painful now. I have a good bit more back pain due to your low position and my bladder is even more squished! The important part is that you're still in there. We've had enough scares to be thankful for that!

Happenings: Daddy has installed a new incentive. Every week that you and I are able to keep you in utero, he will take us to a surprise bakery on Sunday! So far, we've been to Quack's and 1886 Cafe. Work with me, Jude... I want more surprise bakeries!
