Pregnancy: Week 36

Saturday June 24 – Friday June 30, 2017

Even though our doctor didn’t recommend a travel ban, we decided this would be the last week we did some traveling.  We went to a hiking event.  It was good to see friends again and I’m feeling less and less inhibited about hanging out with the people there.  It probably helped that my ex-husband was there alone and seemed largely ignored by the world at large!  Maybe it’s vindictive of me, but I was glad to see him get what I thought he deserved while I always was surrounded by friends and acquaintances.

We went swimming a few times.  It felt blissful on my pregnant belly.  It hurts my pelvis to move my hips for any reason now.  That could be to adjust my position when laying down; it could be to move from laying to sitting or sitting to standing; it could even mean that it hurt to walk.  However, the weightlessness that comes from being in the water lifted all the weight of my belly off of my pelvis and it felt amazing!

I feel like I’m losing a bit of weight, but the scale has remained the same.  I guess that means that our baby is growing while I’m shrinking.  I wonder if has to do with the change in thyroid numbers.  Well, I’ll take it.  Slightly over 50lbs was enough weight gain for someone like me who was already heavy to begin with!
