36 Weeks!

How far along?
 36 Weeks- just one more week until full term! We are READY!!

Baby's size: Honeydew (4.2-5.8 pounds)

Maternity clothes: Just a few non-maternity left.

Best moment this week: Listening to my sweet boy talk to his baby sister...I cannot wait to see how he interacts with her once she actually arrives!!
Miss anything?  Being comfortable. And productive!

Movement: Yes, still quite often, though the movements have definitely changed. And has at times become even painful...she seems to be running out of room!

Food cravings: Ice.

Food aversions: Just drinks.

Gender: GIRL

Labor signs: Still having contractions, and becoming more frequent and regular, but still nothing to be too concerned about at this point. I definitely feel as though she has dropped- no more heartburn for one thing! My next appointment (and ultrasound) is on Tuesday so we will see then if there has been any more progress!

Sleep: What's that!?

Symptoms: Back pain. Contractions. Swelling. General exhaustion. Forgetfulness....you name it! So thankful to be nearing the end!

Belly button in or out? Flat/Out...depending on the day and baby's position!

Looking forward to?  Our ultrasound on Tuesday. Meeting our baby girl. Seeing Shaun's reaction to meeting his baby sister for the first time.


  1. You look adorable!! You carry great!!
    So lucky about your heartburn going away...I literally had it all the way up to my daughter being out of my belly (even during labor, I had it bad!!) Best of luck to you! :)


  2. You are too cute! I am also pregnant and you are 1wk ahead of me, I totally understand every single feeling you have. Hang in there! :D


  3. You are so adorable!!! I love the little footprints on your shirt! You're so close to meeting your little one!!! :-D

  4. So close to the end and you look amazing! I hope to be pregnant soon with another one. I am ready for another baby reading adventure!
