36 Weeks: One Month Countdown!


How far along? 36 Weeks
Baby Size: The size of a honeydew!
Total weight gain: 24 pounds
Maternity clothes? Lots of maxi dresses...like this one.

Stretch marks? No, but this would be the time...my belly just keeps getting bigger!
Sleep: I'm starting to struggle more and more...it's hard to get to sleep...he always seems to get hiccups right about the time I'm dozing off!  And shifting around/getting up to use the bathroom is becoming more difficult!
Best moment this week: Having my first weekly checkup with the doctor!  He said baby is starting to move down, which means he could come early!  That would be nice!  And we also got our maternity photos!  Can't wait to share them with you tomorrow!
Miss Anything? All the usual things...drinking, bending over, feeling "normal".  But I have to say, it's all worth it.  No complaints!
Movement: Lots and lots of movement.  He's an active little boy!
Food cravings: Fresh fruit, angel food cake with whip cream and strawberries, Frosted Mini Wheats! 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really
Gender: BOY!!!
Labor Signs: Nope...nothing yet.  The doctor also said I did not show any dilation, but my cervix is starting to soften.  Hoping after an active weekend that I'll show signs of progress this week!
Symptoms: Lower back pain, lower stomach/pelvic area pain, sleepy, low energy...pretty typical!
Belly Button in or out? halfie
Wedding rings on or off? on
Mood: Getting more emotional...like crying for no reason!  But really happy overall!  And excited for his impending arrival!
Looking forward to: Baby's arrival!  It's crazy to think that he could be here any time now.  We'll be 37 weeks tomorrow...full term!  Yipee!!

Hope you all had a great Memorial Day Weekend!

  5. You are in my reader...and I have been watching your belly grow. Today, I needed to tell you how beautiful and glowing you are. Remember, they are easier to take care of when they are on the inside.

  14. Frosted Mini Wheats...so cute! I remember eating cereal all the time when I was pregnant. Towards the end, I couldn't eat very much at one sitting, but I would get up in the middle of the night and eat a bowl of cereal. : )
    You look great!

  19. Yay! So excited, I can't believe how close his due date is. Such an amazing time, you look stunning!

  20. I also kept wishing that I would go early, but that didn't happen. Don't get discouraged if it doesn't. All the moms around me say that if your baby is delivered on or very ver close to your due date, you are more likely to have a happy baby. My daughter was born on her due date and she is an easy, happy baby:)
    Good luck in the next few weeks. You will get to hold your baby so-so soon:)
