36 Weeks (Baby #2)
How far along - 36 weeks, due November 30th. It's baby month!! (Hopefully...)
Gender - A little gentleman.
Cravings - Not really a craving but I cannot keep out of the leftover Halloween candy. Must get rid of it!
Aversions - Nothing.
Best moment - Not a precise moment, but being so far along. And, only having one shot left. I can't wait to meet this baby boy, but I'd love to not have another NICU baby. Although, I keep thinking about how weird it will be to have him in the hospital room with me.
Looking forward to - Not being pregnant anymore!
Miss anything - Being able to bend over. Even just bending over a bit to reach my laptop is uncomfortable. So, blogging in bed is even less likely to happen these days...which is where I normally do such things. Other things that require bending over...giving Aria a bath, picking things off the floor, putting the Halloween decorations back in their storage box, emptying the dishwasher, and taking clothes out of the top loading washer.
Movement - Tons of it. His favorite spot is with his butt pushing out of my stomach on the left side. That is where he is right now. And, head down!
Other pregnancy symptoms - I am happy to report that the papaya enzymes are little miracle workers for my heartburn. I can finally sleep again without waking up gagging or sleeping propped up at an incline. Occasionally it will flare up a bit but not at all near the level it was before. Now I'm just uncomfortable 90% of the time.
Aria's thoughts - Lots of talk about when mommy goes to the hospital to have the baby. She is ready with her job of coming to visit armed with coffee and sandwiches so she can eat lunch with me. I'm not sure why she picked sandwiches because she doesn't tend to like sandwiches unless you count grilled cheese.
