36 Weeks

How far along? 36 Weeks {first 36 week update}
Baby Size: A head of romaine lettuce...or like I've got a bowl full of jelly!  ;)
Total weight gain: 25ish pounds
Maternity clothes? Since I tend to be wearing the same thing over and over again, I'm trying to add more accessories, like this scarf!
Stretch marks? I think I'm still good...knock on wood!
Sleep: Eh, we're trying to sleep train the cat {aka get her to stop waking me up at 5am} and dealing with my achy back.  Sleep is so-so.
Best moment this week: Having family come into town, getting a pedi with two of my preggo girlfriends and getting ready for CHRISTMAS!!  Can't believe it's the day after tomorrow!
Miss Anything? Pretty much miss my body as a whole.
Movement: Rollin' a ton!
Food cravings: Still lovin' my Raisin Bran...and any holiday treats...I don't discriminate!
Gender: BOY!
Looking forward to: Why, Christmas of course!!!
Differences this time? I think it's clear I'm bigger this time around...it will be interesting to see if this baby is any bigger!

And with Christmas around the corner, I have a fun poll going on right now on my Instagram.  What's your tradition for Christmas...does Santa wrap or leave your gifts unwrapped?  Chime in below!
