la petite bump @ 36 weeks

The end is getting closer! Only a month (or so) until this baby girl makes her grand debut... Although I'm feeling a little meh to be the last of my friends/family to be pregnant right now (all 3 who were due around the same time as me have all had their babies prematurely at 34, 36 & 35 weeks), I'd still rather her keep on baking until she's full term.


I had my 36 week check up on Thursday, first appointment in a month. I've lost another 2lbs since my 32 week appointment, so my total gain is a little under 30lbs so far. It's really strange to be losing not packing on the kilos at this late stage but all normal apparently because of the gestational diabetes diet. Baby girl is head down and ready to go, I'm 1cm dilated - not that it means much being my third. Next appointment is at 38 weeks and I also pick up my Tens machine rental that week, so anytime after then she's allowed to come!

Not much else to report at this late stage - everything has just been going smoothly. Although I've felt really large and tired and uncomfortable, I really can't complain as it's been an easy going pregnancy medically speaking. I definitely don't feel as huge as I did with the boys (all over) and I'm really noticing in these later weeks that my bump is in fact quite a different shape. It's not the round basketball belly, it's more pointy - although it's still quite low. Bump comparison - 36 weeks with Oliver vs Austin vs baby girl.


Today marked a milestone in this pregnancy though - the baby sprinkle day! I had the most lovely afternoon with friends celebrating this sweet baby girl at a local high tea cafe. Even my long lost friend from Alabama joined in via FaceTime!




4 weeks and counting baby girl. We can't wait to meet you!
