My Pregnancy Week 36

Brought to you by
Pregnancy Week 36

Your baby continues to grow and develop inside of you, measuring over 19 inches long, and weighing about 6 ½ lbs! (Having multiples? Your twins may be around five pounds now.) During week 36, your baby's most important job is to keep putting on weight. Actually, that's her primary job from now until delivery.

Your due date is probably a good guideline to determine when your little one is coming. Even though few women deliver on their actual due date, many women deliver in the days just before or after.

    Week 36, baby #4 for us – our second girl. This pregnancy took us by surprise! Our children are 18, 15 and 8. Definitely a life changing experience and we’ve all had to make adjustments. This pregnancy has not been difficult. I think it helped that was in tip top shape before I got pregnant and remained active the entire pregnancy. I missed the entire first trimester….well, I didn’t know I was pregnant until i was nearly 4 months. I was never “this” pregnant during the summer and we have 100+ degree days, so the summer was brutal. I am looking to cooler fall days & while I am anxious to meet baby girl, I know she is growing healthier each day that she stays in my tummy. 4 weeks out seems like a while when you’re this far into the trek – but I’ve had a premature baby at 32 weeks gestation and I know the risks. So i have learned not to say “I can’t wait to meet her”….because, I can wait to meet her….I want to wait to meet her, until it’s time 🙂

    I’m 36 weeks with my first child im having my baby GIRL! My mini me and I wish she can just come next week I can’t take pregnancy anymore I just want to hold her already!!

  5. I am also a first time Mom. I am so excited for baby to arrive I am 35 weeks and 6 days but so nervous for the labor pain

  6. Heather says:

    Baby boy #4! By far the most uncomfortable pregnancy, extreme back pain and trouble sleeping is no fun. Been having the BH contractions since 16 wks and now they are super strong but the DR has not seemed worried about this at all and has not done a cervical exam yet, I am still not going every week yet either… I hope at our next appointment he tells us that we are making progress (dilation, effacement) of some kind, it’s discouraging when you feel like your body is working hard at something to only find out nothing is happening!

      I’m on #3 and this kid makes sure it’s presence is known. I’m in the throes of insomnia and hips hurt so bad I don’t want to walk any more. I know it’s difficult momma but we’ve got this.

  8. Susie says:

    Yay my first baby…im so happy but frightened I’m 19 about to turn 20 when my baby arrives..scared of the unknown…first time mom

    • Chasity says:

      I was 18 just about turn 19 with my first baby and I was the same way. I was scared and nervous because I wasn’t sure what was going to happen. Having my friends and family there to help made a huge difference. Good luck with everything. My son is now 5 years old and I wouldn’t change things for the world. I am 36 weeks with my 3 rd boy and I think you will do a great job. Again good luck.

    I’m 36 woks today with my second baby boy my other boy is now 5 this pregnancy has not Been a breeze for me I’ve had the morning sickness the trouble sleeping, and right now I’ve had Braxton hicks contractions for a week which are very annoying I just went for my ob appointment yesterday cervix was not open and I was only 25% efface when they did the growth ultrasound the week before my baby was measuring at 36wks 6days and was already over 6 1\2 pounds which meant he could come any time so it was hard to hear my cervix still was not open even with all the pain and pressure I’ve been in they scheduled me for another ultrasound next Friday to check how big he is and to see if we may have to go another route we are set up and ready for baby Jace to come into this world just seems he’s taking his sweet time which is ok but I could deal without the contractions and pain
