36 Weeks (11.30)

We got the postcard back that our pre-registration arrived at the hospital and they entered it in. This means we have less paperwork to fill out when we actually have to go to the hospital.

Dave and I did some shopping. We bought some clothes and blankets.  Carters had 50% off and then I had a 20% off coupon that we could use on top of that. We mainly stuck with new born and 3 month clothing but got some 6 months ones if I really liked them. I wanted to buy some cute dresses but Dave didn't want to yet.  We did buy some pants to go with all the onesies we have. I hope I can match. If I can't, I'll just claim Dave did it. We got a little coat. It's tough to buy in my mind because should I buy newborn or 3 month. Some babies are born bigger than newborn. Also for warm clothes, it's only cold here December and January so then if I have a smaller baby, I'd need warm newborn sizes but if I don't I need smaller 3 month sizes. Also if I have a small baby and buy 3 month warmer clothes, I might not ever need them.  Then everything should be pre-washed and I'd think that would be easier to do before you have a newborn you are trying to take care of but then if you pre-wash you can't return it.

Dave commented that this baby is already taking up all his free time. He was talking about all the shopping and assembling he's been doing.
Poly tried to lie on me but I wouldn't let her so here she is against my leg
I've continued to do exercises to try to get the baby to move into head down position.  They  never work. I have learned the beanbag is easier to get onto and off of than a stack of pillows.  I was doing the one where my knees are on the couch and elbows on the floor and the landlord walked in to the living room to ask a question. He didn't say a thing. Dave helped him with what he needed. I do more things than pictured above but either I didn't get any pictures of them or the ones I got aren't very good.
Size of baby: Coconut, 18.7 inches long from head to heel. My app on my phone says the baby weighs about 6 pounds.

Total Weight Gain/Loss:  34.8. lb gain overall. I gained 3.3 in the past week. I sure gain 3x as much each week as I'm supposed to.

Maternity Clothes:  Same as previous weeks: Mostly. Some t-shirts and hoodies aren't maternity. I also sleep in my yoga pants that aren't maternity. 

Movement: I feel like there is a lot less movement this week. I also do the exercises I should do and the baby might move a little but not move to where she should go.

Sleep:  I've been waking up in the middle of the night so hot. I take off what's left of my covers and pull up my pants legs to my knees. Or I'm sleeping fine. My back sometimes hurts when I wake up. 

What I miss: somewhat the same: Exercising and running. Being able to stand for a long period of time without having to interrupt what I'm doing to go sit. Going many many hours in a row without going to the bathroom. 

Symptoms: The same I guess. I get lightheaded a bit after doing too much but I feel like the definition of "too much" is a lot more than it used to be. My back gets sore.

Best moment this week: buying cute baby clothes and creating a baby pool

Looking forward to:  actually having this baby.
some other angles from today.
Exercise:  Shopping. Cleaning (a lot). That's probably it. Unless you count the exercises to try to get this baby to turn.

Dave wanted to watch a movie and I told him I had to finish cropping my pictures and write my post. I said it'd take 15 minutes. It's been 1.5 hours. Oi.

Nov 1

Nov 7 (2 outfits. 0 daily pictures)
I'd like to note that I've worn that striped shirt a few times and don't think I've remembered to take my daily picture ever wearing it.
Nov 8 - also wore yoga pants
I wore a tank top and then my pink Old Navy Shirt with yoga pants for flying. I wore a sports bra versus a normal bra for comfort.

I missed a few days. I was sick. Then later I didn't really get pictures besides selfies to show what shirt I was wearing. I was really slacking. I'm getting quite pregnant. I got to wear some sweaters and long sleeve shirts when I was in Philadelphia. Granted sometimes I was a bit hot inside wearing them.

BTW My weight graph page in my navbar has 2 graphs updated.

Email Progress

A little over a year ago I posted about my email progress (and email graphs).  My emails were pretty much the best they've been a year ago. I slowly fell apart then DBC happened and I really fell apart. I've been working a little bit lately by adding going through emails to my to-do list.  Right now I have 370 unread emails and 770 total conversations in my inbox. A lot of those unread were glanced at and then made unread again. A lot were emails to me from me about doing something. I really should just put it in my follow-up folder or something.

I haven't updated in awhile on my graphs so I wanted to show you that I'm still at collecting the data. Some of that missing data near August was because I had updated but never saved the file then when there was a reboot or something autosave didn't capture it.
Do you keep track of any data?

Outfits (October 16-31)

Oct 16
I forgot to take my picture so this was the best I could do. I really like this sweater. It's always a shame I forget to take my picture. Nobody knows how much I really wear something.  At least Connie took a picture that had Dave, my dad, and me so I was able to crop it.

I finally wore leggings again since I own so many. I wish my shirt was longer or something but I didn't have many options.

This shirt (Oct 31), is quite loose in the bust area. I didn't realize until I already left the house. All future wearings will be with a cami under.

So I definitely have enough maternity shirts to go half a month (these posts) or even an entire month without repeating.  Yet in every half month post I have at least 1 thing repeated. Sometimes more than 1. And that doesn't even account for the days I get dressed and don't take a picture.

I have been slacking at putting jewelry on lately.

I think I got too hot so I changed shirts. But I'm not 100% sure that was the reason.

Dave took these ones. Can you tell they are taken from a much higher angle?  He even crouched down some to try to not have them be at such an angle.  This pink shirt is Dave's favorite and he complains I don't wear it enough. I have to have it clean on Saturdays for my weekly photo so I can only wear it if I know I will wash clothes before Saturday hits. Usually my days aren't planned out so then I don't wear it.  Dave also likes this other polka dot shirt that I haven't worn yet because it's dressy. But that was his favorite shirt out of the ones Jen lent me.

So I bought leggings ages ago because so many people told me I'd want leggings when I was pregnant. But then almost none of the shirts I have are long enough for them so then I'm not even wearing them.  I'd also prefer leggings with boots and my black boots suck. I have a pair of moss green leggings that I could wear with brown boots but then I'm at a loss for what shirt so I keep not wearing them. :(

The blue pants are pretty tight now so my guess is I won't wear them or the coral ones for the rest of the pregnancy. They are tight on my legs. The waistband area isn't so bad.

It's interesting to see how pregnant I look in different outfits. I also find that different shirts are my favorites compared to a few months ago. I went to PA thinking I could wear long sleeves or sweaters but then it was so dang hot that I was dying. I'm still itching to wear some long sleeve shirts.

The red shorts, striped skirt, and yoga pants are not maternity clothes. Everything else is.

Do you have a favorite outfit?

Poly has been neglected on here.  Here are a few pictures from the past week.
Those are just what google decided to make collages out of.   Isn't she cute?
