36 Weeks

How far along? 
36 weeks 2 days

How big is baby? Approximately 6 pounds and 18 inches

Total weight gain/loss? 24 pounds, I actually lost 2 pounds since my last appointment

Maternity clothes?  Oh, yes!

Stretch marks? Nope.

Sleep? Not so hot. I'm having a really hard time getting comfortable, still having hot flashes, and still having to pee at least twice a night.

Movement? Not as much now that he's running out of room.

Food cravings? Still milk. Eggo waffles with blueberries now instead of blackberries. Cherry Dr. Pepper from Sonics. Brownies. Soft pretzels.

Gender? Boy

Labor Signs? Well, at my appointment two days ago I told my doctor that I'd been feeling a lot more pressure in my pelvis for the past couple of days. She said yes, that's normal, he's just dropping down lower, and she's like, well, lets see where you're at.  And she proceeds to tell me that I'm already 3 cm dilated and he's dropped all the way down, she said his head was right there when she checked me! I'm like, what?!?! She said she wouldn't be surprised if I had him this week. I told her this was way different than Kylie since I had to be induced at 41 weeks with her. My doctor said that there's no way that's going to happen with him, that I might make it to 39 weeks at the latest.  She said of course I could stay at 3 cm for awhile, but highly doubts it. And then she's telling me to take it easy so we can keep him in there as long as possible. And my minds already racing with all of the things I still have to do before he comes! So I've been trying very hard at balancing my crazy nesting urges with tasking it slow. I'm doing pretty good, I think. 

Belly Button in or out? Out. Boo.

What I miss? A good nights sleep.

What I am looking looking forward to? Kylie being a big sister!

Best moment this week? Getting his crib set up and his carseat cleaned and put together. I feel a little more prepared now. Finishing preregistering at the hospital. Baby steps, right?

Milestones? 26 days until d-day!

35 Weeks

How far along? 
35 weeks 4 days

How big is baby? Approximately 5 pounds and 17 inches

Total weight gain/loss? 26 pounds 

Maternity clothes?  Yep.  Now some of my maternity shirts won't cover my belly, so I'm mainly in big t-shirts. It's crazy because there are a lot of shirts that I wore while pregnant with Kylie, even up to when I delivered her, that don't fit over my belly now.

Stretch marks? Nope.

Sleep? Ugh, not that great. I'm waking up with hot flashes 2-3 times a night. Not to mention having to pee more.

Movement? All the time! Though its definitely more stretching now than anything else. He's always on my right side like Kylie was.

Food cravings? Still milk. Eggo waffles with blueberries now instead of blackberries. Cherry Dr. Pepper from Sonics.

Gender? Boy

Labor Signs? A couple more Braxton Hicks the past couple weeks but nothing much. I am feeling more pressure in my pelvis. 

Belly Button in or out? Out. Boo.

What I miss? Energy. Being able to paint my toes. I told Rex for Valentine's Day I wanted a pedicure :)

What I am looking forward to? Getting his little corner set up in our bedroom. Still. I got the crib out of storage but we still need to set it up.

Best moment this week? Kylie telling me that my belly was too big and she thought the doctor needed to get her baby out right away. Also, finding a diaper bag that was big enough for cloth diapers. And finding out that my sweet sister in laws are throwing me a baby shower this month!

Milestones? Only 31 days to go until our due date! One month! Eek!
