- I am starting to swell :( I can still wear my wedding rings but may have to retire them soon. (being 9 months pregnant in this heat is so much fun).
- 3/4 of my belly button is still "in".
- I am sleeping pretty good, switching sides is quite the event these days but I fall back asleep pretty quick.
- Addison's movements are getting to be very painful. Yesterday I though she was trying to escape from the side of my belly... OUCH!
Tomorrow is my 36 week doctors appointment, I will post about that tomorrow.
The most exciting news is that I hired someone to help me around the house. Her name is Cathy and she is best friends of one of my friends from church. Cathy has 4 kids under 4, and is an amazing Christian woman. I met with her last night and she is just awesome! She is going to come every three weeks to do a deep clean... I am beyond thrilled!
From the Baby Center: Your baby is still packing on the pounds — at the rate of about an ounce a day. She now weighs almost 6 pounds (like a crenshaw melon) and is more than 18 1/2 inches long. She's shedding most of the downy covering of hair that covered her body as well as the vernix caseosa, the waxy substance that covered and protected her skin during her nine-month amniotic bath. Your baby swallows both of these substances, along with other secretions, resulting in a blackish mixture, called meconium, will form the contents of her first bowel movement.At the end of this week, your baby will be considered full-term.
