Baby #2 - Week 36

How far along: 36 weeks & I'm sort of giggling on the inside; here we are, almost at G's birth gestation - and still baking!

How big is baby? This week baby is the size of a honeydew melon. Which doesn't seem so scary, when it's all cut up. Though since this kid is measuring almost two weeks ahead, perhaps I should jump ahead to the scary beach ball images?

Sleep: Taking it whenever I can get it. The usual zombie stagger to the bathroom and back six times a night.

Symptoms: Mainly just tightenings this week. Not too painful, just constant.

Best moment of this week: Realising that I'm almost at term - the end is drawing near, one way or another!

Miss anything: Nope. I will miss this big old belly though.

Movement: Still very sporadic, but I appreciate it when she has a little wiggle. A LOT of hiccups this week.

Food cravings: Does anyone want to make me bread and butter pudding? :)

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.

Gender: Girl!!

How's your mood? I'm actually really, really good. Regardless of whether this kid falls out of her own accord prior to 37 weeks or anytime after that, we're in the home stretch. I baked her through the scary parts, she held on and grew like a champion, and we're almost ready to meet her. I can't wait!

Looking forward to: OB appt is on Wednesday, and I can't wait to see her little (or not so little) face again.

The Bump: Has reached epic beach-ball stage proportions already. Feels stretchy and sore, and my tiger stripes multiplied this week... but it's carried a healthy baby girl (well, two in fact..) and for that I am grateful.
