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!
