thirty-six + a few days





How far along? 36 weeks. One month left!
Baby’s Size 48 cm and 2.9 kg. At our last ultrasound we found out that our little girl has a head in the 88th percentile and legs in the 14th percentile. Big head, little legs. Our kid is a hobbit. Overall she is a little under average in weight.
Where she is: head down. Not yet engaged although it really really feels like it.
Maternity Clothes: yer.
Belly Button: flatoutie.
Gender: sweet baby girl.
Movement: lots of hiccups. She is running out of room so doesn't do many big movements anymore but when she moves I feel it in my ribs or down my sides. Sometimes I see a foot or a bot sticking out.
Sleep: Not so good. I wake up in the night to turn over. I wake up to scratch my itchy feet and hands (trying not to) I wake up early and then after being up for about 20 mins will go back to sleep.
Symptoms: Sore pelvis as it opens up to get ready. Heartburn. Potential cholestasis which could be giving me itchy hands and feet. No back pain at all which I am so thankful for!
Best Moments this week: Feeling really pregnant. It's a bit of a drag sometimes but it is so nice to know why I am feeling the way I am. I'm going to miss having a little one on the inside.
Food Aversions: uncooked egg.
Food Cravings: fruit
What I miss: wearing shoes.
What I am Looking forward to: finding out the results of this test so I can stop worrying. If the results are positive I need to really rethink the next few weeks. Edit - I wrote this post last Tuesday before I had the results of my test. They were all negative. You can read about this here.
Milestones: One month to go.

Oh, Rinny, please don't get caught up in worrying about the percentiles at this stage! I posted about them at http://www.lifeonplanetbaby.com/2011/01/mummys-little-helpers-child-health.html. Treasure your last days alone as a couple! J x

Oh I'm not so worried about the percentiles. I just think it's cute that she has a big head and little legs. I have always joked that we would be having hobbit babies.

You still look awesome Rin! Isn't it amazing how much they are growing now? I'm always late on my picture - at least by a few days. I technically change over on Wednesdays but never get to take it until Friday. :)

That is so cool that they can tell how big your little girl is. Did they get that info by using an ultrasound or just feeling around?
