36 weeks!!

How Far Along: 36 weeks 2 days

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 24 pounds

How Big is Baby: By this week of pregnancy your baby's crown-to-rump length reaches about 13.5 inches and the total length is approximately 20.7 inches. Your baby weighs about 6 pounds now.

Maternity Clothes? Umm, yeah!

Sleep: Sleep is very hard to come by. I wake up numerous times to use the restroom. Trying to turn over in bed is quite a feat and with the weather the way it has been I'm always hot when I sleep during the day. It's hard to get comfortable!

Best Moment this Week: We are now seeing my doctor every week. I'm measuring right on and everything still looks great. Next week my doctor will check for sure but Dr. Evans is pretty certain that our little one is heads down!! That's what I like to hear.

Movement: Yep, this little one always seems to be tossing and turning. Since he or she is running out of room the movements are getting to be a bit painful at times but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I love knowing that our little one is healthy!

Food Cravings: Nope.

Gender: Still a surprise!

Labor Signs: It feels as if I'm having more braxton-hicks contractions. Next week my doctor is going to check and see if I've made any progress so I guess we'll know by then if anything is happening yet. I am completely fine letting this little one cook for a while longer!

Belly Button In or Out? Outie of course.

Stretchmarks? Nope. It's kind of weird that I don't have any yet but I'm not going to complain!! :-)

How are you feeling: Tired, uncomfortable and hot. This 90-100 degree weather is horrible and I hate even walking out of our apartment. Ugh. Besides that I'm getting more and more excited by the day. I am SO ready to hold our baby!

What I am looking forward to: Finding out next week if our little one is in the right position and just getting closer to meeting this baby!!

What I miss: Sleeping on my back and being able to move around without it being such a chore.

Weekly Wisdom: Well I've heard people say this all the time but I really want to do my best not to wish the next 4 weeks away. I want to enjoy what time I have left in this pregnancy even though my body is exhausted.

Milestones: As of next week my baby will be considered full-term!!



I love these updates!!! I wish I had done better about blogging while pregnant....I couldn't blog at work and I was too exhausted when I got home so it never happened. I'm impressed with your weight gain (at how little you've gained) - you'll loose that in no time at all. I gained quite a bit more, but I've already lost more than you've gained in just 3 weeks!! You'll be amazed how fast it comes off. I never did get sick of being pregnant....I just got impatient because I soooo wanted to meet Carter :-) That's exciting that you're to the point of being checked - keep us posted!
