36 weeks

Wednesday, March 20, 2013 Anya 0 Comments

36 weeks today! So far so good - the soles of my feet started hurting a couple of days ago. I have a feeling it's just the weight gain that put my feet into a shock-state. I started at 139 pounds and we are now close to 174. It's all in my belly though - even the midwife commented on how my legs still look the exact same. Needless to say people have started to comment on my stomach and we got some of the usual 'Aaaanyy dayyy now' comments from strangers. 
The pregancy pillow is a complete life-saver. I'm not sure I would be able to sleep without it at this stage. Last night after I went to pee, I couldn't get back to sleep again. It was 3:30am. Luckily this doesn't happen often so far. Usually once a week or so. The last two days made me feel very tired and my stomach started itching like crazy. I think you had a growth-spurt. It seems to be a little better again today energy-wise. 
I'm still fighting this skin infection on my tummy (ringworm) I could totally do without it and it makes me nervous that I might not be able to get rid of it until you get here. I want to make sure that it has cleared up before your arrival so that we can enjoy skin on skin time without having to worry about it.
My right ear is still clogged or popped. It's either ear-wax or water, I'm not sure - but it is very annoying. We'll see the doc again next week and I'll try to finish packing my hospital bag tonight hopefully. 
We still have things arrive for you every day. For the nursery or clothes from friends. It's so very nice. Due to the lack of energy I have closed boxes standing downstairs currently. I will try to get a little further again today.
