Pregnancy Update: 36 Weeks

Here is a pic from a couple of days ago. Ignore the “bathroom selfie” thing and how tired I look!



I have hit 9 months! wooooooooo! I have started dilating as well. It could still be a few weeks but it will most likely be in the next 2 weeks!! I’m packing my hospital bag this weekend and the diaper bag. I’m also going to pack a thermal bag with drinks and snacks. I will do a post later on what I put in each of them.

So my blood sugar has been great and my fasting blood sugar has actually gone down a lot! I’m not sure if this is due to me adding my magnesium supplement back in at bedtime or if it is because I’m so close to the end… I’ve been trying to read up on it but there isn’t much info out there on this. Which is frustrating and motivating (to learn as much so I can share with others) at the same time. I’m not usually a huge sweets-craving person but I have been lately. I’m so looking forward to some Chinese food and a cupcake!

We had an ultrasound of little man on Tuesday and he looks great. He is head down (Thank God!!) and in position. He is measuring at about 37 1/2 weeks, like I said though all my babies measure ahead. I don’t think he will be over 8.5lbs if that.

I’m definitely nesting but I’m super tired and super sore as well. I have SO much to get done INSIDE the house (and hubby has a lot he wants/needs to get done OUTSIDE of the house) before baby boy arrives. “Best laid plans”, right?!

I will be taking the kiddos out (separately) before baby is born, hopefully. I want to get some quality one on one time with them doing whatever they want.

It’s funny how just a couple of weeks ago I was thinking I had plenty of time to get everything done and now I’m starting to freak out! I really wanted to get some freezer meals done but somehow I don’t think that is going to happen!


Any tips on how to get it all done?
