Third Trimester: Weeks 32 - 35

I'm currently in my 36th week of pregnancy and I am feeling very pregnant. My little girl doesn't feel so little anymore, especially in the middle of the night when she seems to be pressing outward with such force. Let's just say, I'm surprised my belly button is still an "innie".

Just as I've done before, below is an overview of the past 4 weeks of my pregnancy:

Week 32:
Noticed a big dip in energy this week! Starting to feel more tired but still feeling good overall! We had our 3rd and final shower this past weekend and we bought the final piece to the nursery; the glider rocking chair! It's now time to finish up thank you cards and put the gifts away. I noticed I was really thirsty this week. Drinking at least 130 ounces of water each day and still doesn't seem like it's enough!

Week 33:
Received very short notice that my OBGYN practice is closing on January 1st. I found a new, highly recommended OBGYN within a day or two. The first appointment with my new doctor will be December 31st. This was particularly scary at first but I'm feeling like this is what was meant to be all along. Staying positive about it all! Feeling good and getting a lot of help from my husband this week. It's not as easy to get up from the couch, to go shopping, etc. He's a great help! Feeling extremely blessed to have him in my life.

Week 34:
Starting to feel like the first trimester again. Dizzy, nauseous and TIRED! Loving how big she is in my belly. Her kicks and movements are so pronounced. We are starting to be able to feel a knee or an elbow, hands, etc. One night my stomach looked like a wave pool. My husband was there to see it! Very special!

Week 35

Week 35:
This week I had some great days and some really hard days! We had our sonogram and found out that she is head down and 5 lbs. 12 oz. She is in the 50th percentile for weight. I'm a proud momma, already! During the sonogram, she had one hand covering her face and she was sucking on the other one. It was so cute to watch her little mouth and hands moving around! We got an unexpected stress test done, and everything was good! On a different note, naps are becoming a necessity these days; they make a world of a difference for me. Also, I went shopping with my mom and grandma over the weekend. I bought her "coming home" outfit. This was also very special!

My next weekly recap should be taking place on my 40th week of pregnancy. Here's to hoping I last that long!
