Bump Date - 36 Weeks

How far along: 36 Weeks!!
27 days to go till my due date!

Baby Size: The size of a head of romaine lettuce, weighs almost 6 pounds, and is more than 18 1/2 inches long.

Weight gain:  14 pounds

Maternity clothes: mostly all maternity, nothing new here

Stretch marks: found my first stretch marks at the bottom of my belly, which makes sense because the baby is head down and he is starting to drop. I find those stretch marks a badge of honor :) 
Sleep: not so great lately, going to attempt some Tylenol PM this weekend so that I can get a good nights sleep.  Last weekends sleep was just plain awful and it's really killing me this week 
Gender: Baby BOY!!

Movement: all the time when I lie down for bed and then when my alarm goes off in the morning.  It's like little man is just so excited for me to go to sleep and then wake up.  Dance party!  LOL!

Best moment this week: my 36 week doctor appointment yesterday!  Baby is head down and ready to go!  I am 1 cm dilated and showing signs that he is ready to come soon! 
Looking forward to: the breastfeeding class tonight, I'm interested to see if I learn anything else different than I already have from books and the internet

Food cravings: last night my dinner was Pillsbury Orange Rolls....and they were DELICIOUS!!!
  Anything making you queasy or sick: I've been waking up in the mornings feeling a little sick to my stomach again (like I did in the first trimester, but not so bad)
Labor Signs: some braxton hicks but nothing to be too concerned
What I miss: my energy and sleeping on my stomach
Symptoms: all the same as it's been

Nursery: need to finish those frames, get a changing pad cover and some other assorted items and then I should be done!

Belly Button in or out? flat with my stomach

Wedding rings on or off? On!  

Mood: sleepy and tired

  • I am OFFICIALLY 9 months pregnant!  Holy cow!  It's been a long road to get here, but I am glad to be here and am ready to meet him!
  • I am the oldest of my family and my mom had me at 37 weeks.  You guys, that's next week if it were me......OMG!
  • I started to pack my hospital bag, but that doesn't mean I got very far in the packing department
  • I also need to pack a "in case my water breaks at work" bag with some extra clothes, some pads and something to put on the car seat when I have to drive to get Andy at work or drive home.
  • Why do nursing bras and tank tops have to cost so much?
  • Next Thursday I am going to this big consignment sale that is being hosted in my area and I am curious to see if I can find any good deals.

I had a "just in case" bag at work too and a beach towel on my seat in my car. I didn't need either but was glad for the option. You're so close!
