. . . for Lauren and Lauren: 35 & 36 Weeks

35 & 36 Weeks

Four week countdown is on!! (Give or take a few days, that is.)  I had my doctor appointment this week and now go every week which seems crazy.  He could tell baby boy is head down but not low, following right in his sister's footsteps.  Really praying this baby speeds it up a little to make labor easier for me this time.  I'm trying really hard to not worry about it and know that I have absolutely no control over how it goes, which is scary and hard.  

My belly button is doing this super weird thing that did not happen with Addilyn.  I actually think pregnant bellies with a belly button sticking out is cute, but mine isn't like it's sticking out like that. I can't even explain it but Addilyn laughs at it all the time.  Although it's better than the deep hole that it was the first two trimesters.  Pregnancy is so weird.  As are belly buttons.  

If I'm home I just about always have my shirt lifted up, and hate having anything touch my stomach. I'm applying lotion like crazy as my stomach is super itchy and I feel like it can't stretch any more! But I'm sure it will just keep on going.  

I'm at the weight gain I was when I delivered Addilyn, and trying to just let that go and not worry about the after part.  I just really don't want to train for a marathon to take the last few pounds off, so I'll be making another plan.  But definitely working on not worrying or thinking about that. Reminding myself often what a gift it is to carry this baby and how I'd have my body do anything it needed to get him here safely and healthy!

My sister and one of my best friends through me a baby sprinkle the last weekend and it was wonderful.  I got so many cute boy clothes and things, and felt loved and celebrated.  We are so lucky to have some many people that love our boy so much already.  

Four more weeks to go baby boy!

You are looking so good, Katie! My belly button did weird things too when I was pregnant. It didn't pop out, but it stretched weirdly flat!

I was at the weight I was with Grant when I was only 24 weeks along! I then gained about 10 more. It's not worth worrying about, I'm sure you'll be fine and nursing does wonders!

Yay for updates. Looking good, and I agree, it's so hard to compare this time to last time you were pregnant, I had that same realization about the weight gain...eventually it comes off, haha.
