36 Weeks

Lots of progress this week! I completely lost my desire to eat. AN.Y.THING. I had to force myself to eat all week, because, in a cruel twist of pregnancy brutality, I still get hungry, but the very thought of eating brings me to tears. Now, the only reason I call this progress is because, in my misery, I went back and read my 36 week pregnancy update with Brody, and it said:

"I have no desire to eat whatsoever. I have realized that it is not so much that I have lost my appetite, because I still get hungry, as it is that eating is just not satisfying. I eat to make the hunger go away. But usually my stomach feels heavy and upset after I eat. But if I don't eat, HEARTBURN. So its a trade off."

On Saturday night, at 10:00pm, I was struck with the urgent need to clean. Nesting. I scoured and scrubbed and wiped and sanitized until midnight. And I only stopped because I needed more cleaning supplies. Then, as soon as I laid down, I had such strong, painful cramps and low back pain that I couldn't fall asleep for an hour and a half. I only slept about 4 hours that night, because my cramps kept waking me up. I have been mildly crampy on and off since then. Another indication that I am right on track in my pregnancy progress. Here is my 35 week update from Brody's pregnancy:

"I woke up several times on Sunday night with strong cramps. I have been feeling crampy ever since. Yesterday my lower back started to ache as well...I looked back at my baby find that I started feeling this way about 2 1/2 weeks before Jazlyn was born."

That ended up following true with Brody. I started feeling crampy exactly 2 weeks (+2 days) before he was born. So... that would put me on track to meet this little one in about 2 1/2 weeks! Whoa!

It is really interesting to learn my own personal pregnancy patterns, and how consistent they seem to be!
