Tuk Tuk Thursday – 36 Weeks

Standard

Exactly ONE month from today is my due date, but really, it’s actually 27 days, since February is short.  WHY IS FEBRUARY SO SHORT?!?

OH and HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!

HEATHER

  • How Big Is Baby: A honeydew, S/he’s still in the 17.2- to 18.7-inch and 4.2- to 5.8-pound range and continues to beef up. S/he’s getting closer and closer to being able to breathe on her/his own. Her/his skin is getting smooth and soft and gums are rigid. Her/his liver and kidneys are in working order. Circulation and immune systems are basically good to go, too.

  • Sleep: I hate to keep repeating myself each week, but tossing and turning doesn’t provide for much excitement when describing sleep habits; or lack thereof.

  • Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Still no eggs, everything else is delicious.  Especially apples.

  • Exercise: Keep on, keeping on.

  • Movement: Baby has mastered the hula-hoop, cha-cha, jump-rope and any other activities that require large and long movements in a confined space.  And surprisingly, it still makes me happy.

  • The Belly: Big, just big 🙂

  • What I’m Loving: These last few weeks as I try to enjoy the hubs, friends, and family, just a little bit extra.

  • Worries: Nothing of note.

  • Other Symptoms: More regular hip pain when walking, but it’s still not constant.  Otherwise, pretty great!

  • What I’m Looking Forward to: Meeting the little bundle!!

  • Best Moment of the Week: My weekend of pampering.  The hubs was out west (in CO) for the annual father/sons ski weekend, so I took it upon myself to fill my time with princess-like activities.  Haircut, brunches (Café D’Alsace and Maialino – recently rated two of the best brunch places in NYC by Business Insider), pedi, pre-natal massage, girlie movies (Magic Mike included… which was terrible), etc.  So all that was pretty awesome/delicious.  Now, we’re both Manhattan-bound until the baby decides to arrive; insane.
