36 Weeks

How far along: 36 weeks

Total weight gain: +12 lbs from pre pregnancy weight. -1 lb from my last appointment. Thinking back though I imagine my TOTAL weight gain is around 18 lbs since I lost some weight in the beginning....So if we are going to get technical about it, there you go.

Maternity clothes: Duh. I am getting sick of wearing the same stuff every day.

Stretch marks: Sigh. Yes. I really thought I would get them on my sides, but no. I have like 4 right in the front of my belly around my belly button. They need to fade. Like now.

Sleep: I do sleep well, but get up 1-3 times during the night. My back has started to ache so I have made a fortress out of 4 pillows, 1 body pillow and 2 pillow pets (Mr. Tiger & my shark). Throw in Miss Friski and Fendi Foo and we have a full on party in the bed.

Best moment of this week: The painter came and did the stripes in the nursery! He should be finishing up today so hopefully it can air out and I can start putting things together.

Miss anything: Running, sushi, proactiv face wash, getting out of bed without rolling over or pulling up on the headboard for assistance, shaving - oh I am still shaving, but it is much more challenging these days!

Movement:  LOVE the movements. It is absolutely mind blowing to know God has this little person moving around inside me. Like super weird. Her positioning yesterday about killed me. I have been very blessed in being mostly comfortable until yesterday. However she was positioned, it hurt. It hurt to sit at my desk and to drive in the car. Like it hurt to breathe in and my back was killing. Once I was able to stand up or lay down it sent away, but I hope work days like that aren't in my future. :(

Food cravings: Sweets!

Anything making you queasy or sick: I'm not getting queasy again, but I do get fuller faster. If I feel too full then I start to feel a bit sick.

Have you started to show yet: Oh yes....

Gender: Baby Brit!!!

Labor signs: Nope.....And this plays on my fears that I won't know I am in labor. Or I will think I am in labor and I'm not. I pray this sweet baby stays put for the next 4 weeks! She is head down though, but I am not dilated. 

Belly button in or out: In, but it's trying to come out. Creepy.

Wedding rings on or off: On - I do take them off at night.

Happy or moody most of the time: Tired. But I am excited to wash her clothes and get the nursery set up so I can feel somewhat accomplished. It's very unlike me to be pushing it this close (yes a month is close) to the due date and not be ready, like at all. 

Looking forward to:  Getting organized! Making sure everything is washed and packing a hospital bag. I know all of you "pro" moms are probably laughing, but I tend to freak out and possibly have OCD tendencies. I need to make sure this stuff is done and ready to go!
