Monroe Eleanor: 36 Weeks

36 Weeks 

Baby Size: almost 6lbs, 18" long
Weight Gain/Loss: 23-25 lbs (I think) 

Gender: GirlMonroe Eleanor  

Fit Mamma: it has been nice out this week (like 65 on Christmas) so Harlow and I have been walking our new street! Then today I rode the stationary bike.

Symptoms: she for sure dropped a couple weeks back and hips have been pretty sore, and I have to pee constantly...I've had a lot of contractions this week, and 2 days we timed them at about 5-7 min apart. They are extreme extreme pressure and my abdomen gets very tight and hard. Some of them hurt my lower back. Unfortunately they only lasted that way for about 20-30 min still not close enough or for long enough to go to the hospital. Also I've had a lot of pinching pain and soreness down there (kinda like I got kicked in the crotch) :| did not go to the dr this week because of Christmas, but there were 2 occasions we almost decided to go ahead and go to the hospital, but the contractions died down. We go to the dr on Monday. So fingers crossed, if not before then.

Cravings: No major cravings, but I am hungry all the time! 

Clothes: maybe 2 articles of clothing fit over my belly :/

Movement: I feel her feet poke out usually on my right side, and I feel her hiccups waay down there. Other than that I don't feel any big movements. 

We had an amazing Christmas! All of our families traveled here to our house, because we did not want to be too far away from the hospital just in case! Everything is pretty much ready for sissy Roe to come!

Monroe Eleanor: 33 Weeks

Baby Size: 
about 17" a little over 4 lbs 
Weight Gain/Loss: 25 ish 

Gender: Girl, Monroe Eleanor Snelson!  

Fit Momma: we moved last week, and so I been unpacking and chasing Harlow!

Symptoms: noticed and increase in contractions and the feeling of pressure. Also an increase in the pinching feeling. 

Cravings: None for a while 

Clothing: maternity pants for sure, even those start to get uncomfortable because she is very low and cause uncomfortable pressure on her. Clothes are not fun right now! 

Movement: lots of little nudges, and pokes. No big movements anymore, she doesn't have much room in there at this point. 

*had our 33 week appointment on Monday, and I'm dilated to about 2.5 cm. It is right on track to what happened with Harlow. Dr. Hinton decided to go ahead and give me a sequence of steroid shots to help her lungs develop just in case she decides to come early! So they monitored my contractions for about 2 hours, and again decided that things are prob going to happen a little at a time. So we hope to keep this little nugget in there until Christmas!!
