Bump Update: Week 36


No wonder I get full so quickly...my stomach is squished!

How far along: 36 weeks & 3 days

Size of baby: About 18.5 inches long, weighs about almost 6 pounds, and is the size of a honeydew

Weight gain: 18.5 pounds

Maternity clothes: Maternity pants/shorts and regular & maternity tops & dresses

Symptoms: Braxton Hicks contractions and cramping but no swelling yet which is a plus considering it's supposed to be close to 90 degrees all week

Gender: Still a girl....hopefully

Exercise: Ran a little bit on Monday but will probably stick to teaching Spin/TRX and Spinning the rest of the week....been consistently working out 6 days/week this entire pregnancy and hope to continue until the end

Food cravings: Diet Coke and Cheez-Its

Food aversions: Nothing

Movement: She must be trying to stretch out and give herself some more room in there because I'm constantly feeling movement way over on my right side at the same time I feel a big poke to the left of my belly button

Sleep: With only a few weeks left to go, I'm still sleeping great at night.  I think it helps that my belly is on the smaller side and I don't really have an issues moving around in bed & turning from one side to the other

Looking forward to: Dr appointment on Friday with first internal exam....hoping for a little progress

Best moment of the week: Breastfeeding class on Monday night and making it to 9 months pregnant with still feeling good

I could barely fit bus doors because of my huge size. I go sideways if ever I'm going inside a crowded bus. So I decided to take tips from fitness coach a “Pro Fitness Coach” who helps me.Get free coach online ProFitnessCoach4u
