Well I am 36 weeks pregnant and I just wrapped up the finishing touches on my birthing plan. This pregnancy seems to be coming to an end.
I had my 36 week appointment today. Once again it was uneventful, but as my doctor said “that is a good thing!” I still haven’t gained any weight, my blood pressure was great, and my fundal height is right at 36 centimeters. Once again Junebug’s heart rate was ~ 150.
This morning I woke up at 4am and was wide awake. As I lie in bed trying to go back to sleep Junebug seemed to be antsy as well. He or she couldn’t stop moving. I think he or she was doing the hokey pokey, but I could be wrong.
The baby is probably over 5 pounds now and may add up to one pound a week from here on out. The height is a little over 18 inches and the baby can gain around an inch a week from here on out. Like I mentioned before, the doctor is predicting a tall slender baby.
I am pretty tired today and I have had a wonderful time with allergies lately…yuck! Thankfully nothing serious though. I have another doctors visit next Thursday. If you know of any good birthing methods or books, please pass along the recommendations!
