36 Weeks with Baby Boy!

36 weeks a

I still remember back in June when my morning sickness started up thinking how I couldn’t wait for January/February to get here. I was absolutely miserable and throwing up so much that my husband almost took me to the er a couple of times due to not keeping anything down for days at a time.  The first trimester was HARD!!! I cried a lot and I tried everything to help ease the discomfort of morning sickness.

The second trimester started in August and I went in for my NT Scan only to find out the baby was measuring much more ahead than we thought and we found out the baby’s gender. I cried the entire drive home. I was in complete shock and disbelief when the tech said “boy!” I regret not getting that potty shot to show off but I will tell you it was obvious with his penis and testicles right in between his little legs.

The following week my Sciatica started up and my legs felt like they were constantly cold. This pain lasted until I was nearly 25 weeks, so almost 10 weeks.

So when I hit 26 weeks (in November) I finally felt great! No more morning sickness and my sciatica pain went away.

Last week (35 weeks) I started up with the dreaded pregnancy insomnia. If I wake up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom (which I do) I then lay in bed for hours trying to fall back asleep. I also toss and turn alot because my right hip has been hurting.

Here I sit 36 weeks and I can’t believe this journey is almost over! I absolutely love feeling this little guy move around, yes even when he kicks the crap out of my ribs. I feel bad when he gets the hiccups and laugh watching my belly roll around as he switches from side to side.

I am going to miss being pregnant, we have decided this will be our last baby (4 is a good number right?) but I am so anxious and excited to meet this little guy! I can’t wait to see if he looks like his daddy!

Here is a comparison from last week and this week!

And for fun here is my belly with babies 2 and 3 (I so wish I had some of when I was pregnant with Sam)
