36 Weeks | Baby Reyna



 At 36 weeks, sweet baby girl weighs close to 6 pounds and is about 18.5 inches long (size of romaine lettuce this week). She remains quite active and her kicks and movements have yet to get old. I love each of her dances and love that her and I get to share them together.

Though she shouldn't come for a couple more weeks, everything is pretty much ready for our little girl's arrival. Nursery is ready, clothes are washed, the car seat is all set up in the car. I'm thankful that all is taken care of early because I most definitely lack the energy to do much right now. After today, I only have 7 more work shifts & then it's due date week!

Sleeping is still my biggest challenge. As of this week, I can empathize with folks who struggle with restless leg syndrome. It's the strangest phenomenon & definitely frustrating when you're trying to relax and fall asleep. Bizarre. I'm still in awe of pregnancy and the fact that I'm growing a life inside of me. Seriously miraculous and such a gift. I'm also in disbelief that all of my organs will return to their proper locations. I guess that's all a part of the miracle!

We are both getting excited and ready to meet our daughter. Thank you, Lord, for another week of growth for our babe. 28 days to go!!
