Bianca Lively: 36 Weeks |Num.2|


36 Weeks |Num.2|

Wow there, look at that belly!

Hi. This poor baby, I feel terrible that I haven't documented the last 6 weeks of this pregnancy. Life got ahold of me like a ton of bricks, and I just completely stopped documenting my pregnancy bi-weekly. But, enough is enough! And since I only have a few weeks to go, (3 to be exact) I figured I'd start getting back into my blog, and keep track of the very last few weeks. Sophia has been amazing lately, she already is showing me how amazing of a big sister she will be to this sibling. She hugs on my belly all day long, kisses it, and says "wake up baby" just to feel the baby move. It melts me. And I can't wait to see how she will be when she actually sees and meets our new little family member.

Pregnancy Update:

How far along: 36 weeks! WHAT?! How and why did it fly by this time?!
Gender: Still unknown. It's so crazy to think that I have no idea what we're having. I feel no different than I did with Sophia, so maybe its another girl? Or maybe I just have super easy (hormonal) pregnancies haha
Weight gain: I've gained a total of 23 pounds so far. Still in the recommended weight gain zone. And I haven't worked out! So terrible, but I can not wait to get back into a workout routine.. We shall see how this works with two kids. Haha
Maternity clothes: Yes, just the pants. I got myself two maternity jeans. One pair from when I was pregnant with Sophia, and I got myself these black ones which are amazingly comfortable. I love them. Oh wait, I also got myself a pair of maternity shorts. But still rocking the leggings and tank tops with lose overlays. Kind of like the photo above with Sophia. 
Stretch marks: Not yet, but I do kind of see a little something coming in. And i'm like pouring body butter on that thing like no other haha. I've been terrible about moisturizing my belly. I need to do it twice a day from now on. 
Sleep: I've been waking up a lot in the middle of the night. Having to use the restroom and adjusting myself to the other side takes me some time. Even just getting out of bed is a mission. "Rolling out of bed" is taken to a whole other level now. 
Best moment this month: Sophia got her big girl bed! And we both absolutely love it! She surprisingly sleeps in it all night. Its awesome. I know she's super comfortable.
Worst moment this month: Other than other things going on in my life right now, I'd have to say there hasn't been any worst moments this month. I feel truly blessed right now in life having God as my foundation to look on the bright side of everything. Like every, single, thing. Love it!
Movement: Oh my, yes! This baby moves like so crazy and so much! Constantly, stretching, kicking, and rolling. It amazes me how much it moves. Sophia was a super chill baby in my belly. So everyone's saying this is a boy.. But again, we shall see!
Cravings: Not craving much.. Pretty satisfied with my food intake haha
Queasy or sick: I have been feeling a little sick lately. Not sure if it's stress related, but I definitely feel as if i'm going to throw up every day. 
Labor signs: I did go into the hospital in February. I was having contractions so they went to monitor me and they were 5 minutes apart. I freaked a little so they kept me there till they spread out. So far, i've been having them more, but not as intense and as much.
Belly button in/out: My belly button is basically flat. It's a little more out than in though. 
Wedding rings on/off: My wedding rings are on. But I do notice some days when I'm putting on lotion it's hard to take them off. So, who knows if they'll fit come 2-3 weeks from now. 
Mood: My mood has been peaceful. I feel happy and content. I have my sad emotional break downs as if someone in my life has passed away, but then I pray and pray and completely feel 100% again. God is my savior! And why I didn't rely on him years ago, kills me. But I'm focusing on today and only today. :)
Looking forward to: I'm looking forward finding out what the gender is. No one knows anything!! It's an exciting feeling and I can't wait. I can't wait to experience that moment alone with C too.. It was amazing having that intimate time with him when we had Sophia. And this time will be even more intense since we have no clue as to what the sex is. I can't wait to meet my new baby. And also to see Sophia's reaction.. It's going to be the cutest!!
