Third trimester: Weeks 36 – 37

Week 36 (October 5)
Braxton Hicks contractions calmed down this week compared to last week. But heart burn kicked up a notch; I had to go buy some fruity Tums.

Amanda emailed me our maternity photos. They turned out fabulous! 😀

I had an appointment with Suki on Friday. She told me that my GBS swab came back positive. Crappy. I had hoped for one less thing to worry about. My lower belly had been feeling much heavier, and Suki confirmed that baby’s head had engaged. No wonder! Blood pressure was 110/65, fetal heart rate strong and steady, and fundal measured at 37 cm.

Also, she gave me the results from my 33 week ultrasound. Apparently the baby measured in the 86th percentile and weight was estimated at 5 lb 7 oz.

That afternoon I called our genetic counsellor and informed her that my due date was getting closer. She said to call her after the baby is born and she will rush the results of the blood test.

Total wight gain was 39 lbs. I’ve officially surpassed the weight I gained with Khloë.


Weeks 36-37

Week 37 (October 12)
Still incredibly uncomfortable and suffering from heartburn at night. Ugh. Tums were my best friend.

Jordan came with me to my midwife appointment this week. His first one all pregnancy! I wanted him to drive me because driving causes me pain in my pelvis. I hate you, SPD. Anyway, blood pressure was 112/66 and fundal at 38 cm. Head still engaged!

When I went to bed on Saturday I had one contraction. Literally just one. It started in my back and the cramp spread to my stomach for 20 seconds.
