36 Weeks Pregnant - Baby #4

Baby
Baby is around 5.7lbs and 47.5cm long. By the end of this week baby is considered full term. Baby is shedding the downy lanugo hair that covers the body and making their first poo. 




Symptoms 
This week I've had more of the same. More braxton hicks, heartburn and trouble sleeping. I'm also quite thirsty this week. I'm still quite tired and nesting a lot too. My legs are quite swollen at the tops and my feet are sore by the end of the day.
I also had my 36 week midwife appointment to wards the end of this week. Everything is still really good. I am measuring 35 cm which is only 1cm more than last time but they aren't worried. Baby is also 3/5th engaged!!! I do feel and look like i've dropped so makes sense that baby is engaged. My next appointment is the end of February and the midwife said it will be hit or miss if I make it or not. I will be a day off 39 weeks by then and we could have a baby before that appointment comes around. I'm really hoping for next weekend, but baby will come when he/she is ready.
