Pregnancy: 36 Weeks
Weight gain/loss: 35 lbs Oh Yeah!!!! Imagine carrying
an extra dumbbell of weight everywhere with you!
Maternity clothes: Still some maternity some regular. It is starting to get warmer and I have yet to try on the maternity shorts I bought in December. Fingers crossed they fit!
<----Here is what I wore on our date night. Maternity jeans from the GAP, tank from ZARA(bought here in Seoul) and Anne Klein Shrug top.
Stretchies: none that are visible to me.
Sleep: I am finally recovered from jet lag and sleep has been pretty good. I have noticed I am going to bed earlier and waking up earlier.
Feeling: Interesting.........one day I feel like Lincoln has dropped a lot!!!! Waddle.....Waddle : ) and I can breath again. Then the next day back to normal. I have noticed more menstrual type cramps and lower back pain the last few days.
Best moment(s) this week: Jon and I had a date night on Saturday! We wandered around the Apuyeong area stopping in at a few random stores one being a pet shop. We saw the cutest little guy! He was a mini-Lily. He wanted us to take him home, but for the 1,500,000w price tag. I don't think so!!!!
After a lot of walking we headed to Korean BBQ at one of our new favorite restaurants in Seoul. Don't know the name but it's delicious : ) here are some pics of our evening!
Some of the Korean escalators are made for a single person, so there for we have to wait in line.
Jon even tried MUSHROOMS FOR ME!!!! Grilled mushrooms in Seoul taste so amazing!
Me the grill master of the evening. This was a thin slice marinated Kalbi(beef) with some mushrooms. You can eat it straight off the grill or wrapped in lettuce with some yummy sauce!
Jon enjoying some of our Naengmyeon for "dessert" It is a chilled buckwheat noodle in a ginger broth usually has some korean pears and cucumbers. You can add mustard or spice if you want. It is soooooo yummy!!! and Jon has loved it ever since I introduced him to it : ) and now I get very little!
Food cravings: Now it is Korean BBQ after our fab date night! Jon also mentioned Lucy's Pie Shop in the Ichon-Dongbu area and now I am craving a piece of pie. I think I will take a walk there sometime today and get a slice for us to share for dessert(; ) Jon doesn't really like pie so I know I get 3/4 of then!)
Movement: I think he is going to jump out of my stomach soon!
Labor signs: While walking in Apuyeong I thought for sure he would be coming soon! I was having crazy lower back pain and feeling like he would fall out at any minute!
Belly button in or out: See pic :)
Things I miss: Snuggling with my husband on the couch : ), wearing cute high heels, having ankles, wearing my wedding ring ; (
What I am looking forward to: Nursery furniture comes today! I will do a nursery post once everything is set up!
And.........My friends Mary, Alyssa and Marina are throwing us a Baby Shower on Sunday! So excited to see everyone, have girl time! Can't wait to post pics next week!!! Here is the invite they sent out. It is so cute!
Next Appointment: April 15th(ironically Lincoln's Auntie Sarah's real day of birth in Seoul) : ) It would be a great day to have Lincoln! Interesting that I will be 37 weeks which is considered full term. Things are soooo different here. I thought my next appointment would have been at 36 weeks ?!?!?!?!
Milestones: Soon having a somewhat completed nursery!
Interesting Facts/Information: I have started drinking a 3rd Trimester tea by Earth Momma Angel Baby It is an interesting blend of tea, not something I am quite used to enjoying, but if it helps I will give it a try! I love drinking tea so I don't mind trying something new and then once Lincoln comes I will be switching up to the MilkMaids Tea. We also purchased the shampoo/body wash for Lincoln at the Coex Baby Fair. I will have to do a little review on it after his first bath!
Weekly wisdom: I have discovered the one and only part of my body that has gotten smaller during this whole process.....my bladder! Although, upon discovery it didn't really make me feel any better!
Making a decision to have a child--it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.
