Measurement around belly: 37.5" (2 inches bigger than last time)
How big is baby? At 34 weeks, my midwife estimated that baby was between 4.5 and 5 pounds. According to Baby Center, baby is now almost 6 pounds.
Maternity Clothes: I picked up a few sweaters at a thrift store. Since it's so close to my due date, I'm more interested in purchasing nursing-friendly clothes...
Movement: It's weird to watch the movement sometimes - it really deforms my belly!
Cravings: No new cravings. I decided to go on a "real food" cleanse for the last month, so of course I've been wanting all the foods I've decided I can't have. ;)
Aversions: Nothing really.
Aches/Pains: My body is just feeling done with being pregnant. I have less and less energy. If I do a photo shoot for my food blog, I'm basically shot the next day. Braxton Hicks contractions also seem to be picking up. And this baby feels so high! It's getting harder for me to breathe.
Sleep: My legs are starting to give me pain while I sleep.
Fitness: I've been working out 4 days a week pretty consistently. Hopefully it helps with labor!
Also, I've starting eating dates. I've read that it can help you to have an easier labor.
And that's my 36 week pregnancy update!
