36 weeks!

How far along? 36 weeks and 2 days
Total weight gain/loss: Not sure exactly, but last time I checked it was 22 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Yes, and I found the BEST maternity jeans!! If you're newly pregnant or even thinking about becoming pregnant, don't walk, RUN to Old Navy to pick some up today!! They have the full panel in the front which I normally don't like, but they're tight enough to where they stay up. They are flared at the leg (which is what I need), hug in all the right places, and are plenty long enough to wear with clogs, heels, etc. I have them on in this picture. They have some weird stitching in random places to make them look rugged, I guess, and I'm not crazy about that, but I can deal with it. :)
Stretch marks? none
Sleep: Sleep is not great, and it doesn't help that I've got a cold. Since I only sleep on my side I think my belly is straining my back. I've been sleeping with my boppy between my legs, but it doesn't really help much.
Best moment this week: Going on the ferris wheel at the State Fair with the love of my life! :)
Movement: Plenty of movement, and LOTS of hiccups. It's neat that I can so easily tell what her sleep patterns are. So far she's a lot like her mommy in that she takes a while to wake up in the morning and is her most active at night! I would love it if she would keep this schedule when she comes out.
Cravings: Not really.
Gender: Girl!
Labor Signs: I still get a lot of Braxton Hicks contractions, but no real labor signs yet.
Belly Button in or out? I think a little part of it is starting to poke out! Ha!
What I miss: Not having acid reflux at night.
What I am looking forward to: HAVING this baby!!
Weekly Wisdom: I go between wanting her to come out so badly and then wanting to savor every moment of being pregnant. Our lives are about to change tremendously. I will always be someone's mother. That is such a surreal thought. For now I am enjoying my sleep and being as lazy as possible!
Milestones: Completing 8 months of pregnancy! I have my 36 weeks doctor's appt. tomorrow and then will go back every week until she's born.

  1. You are SO right: Old Navy maternity jeans are the best! I wish I'd found them the first time around :o) Sounds like you're doing great!
