Baby Jones Update - Week 36 & Baby Buys On A Budget


How far along? 36 weeks. Only 1 week till full term!!!  
Total weight gain: 24lbs. My midwife checked my weight on Monday and it seems our scales at home are actually accurate!  
Maternity clothes? Nope. I'm refusing to buy anything new now. 
Stretch marks? Yup! I think they are definitely spreading now, slowly, but they are appearing. I think I've found one new one this week and the others are much bigger. 
Best moment this week: Sorting out our birth plan with my midwife. If all goes to plan, I'll have a water birth.
Miss anything? Being comfortable. It turns out that little Scout is lying back to back at the minute. Hence giving me all the insane back ache and rib pain I've been feeling. I'm working hard to turn him now. Lots of birthing ball action and getting on all fours? Ha! who am I kidding. If I got on the floor, I'd never get up. I'm definitely trying to sit upright and forward a whole ton more though. 
Movement: Yup! 
Food cravings: None really.. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Just the usual cat or dog poop. 
Gender: Boy! 
Labor signs: I had a lot of cramps and back pain on Sunday night and Monday morning, but it just turns out that it's due to him dropping in the position he's in and my body not being very happy with it. 
Symptoms: Tiredness, aches and pains and intense heartburn!
Belly button in or out? Out!
Engagement ring on or off? Off.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy? Kind of. As long as I'm not aching.  
Looking forward to: Being full term as of Sunday! Little boy, feel free to come whenever you like! 
I'm also looking forward to our next midwife appointment. If we make it that far.
