36 Weeks…9 Months…Full Term…4 More Weeks…HOLY MOLY!




How far along: 36 Weeks! Holy Moly

Total weight gain: 33 lbs… Somehow lost a pound... 

Maternity clothes?Obviously…I would much rather roll out of bed and wear pajamas every single day from now until he pops out… I did purchase some comfy new pajamas for my hospital bag!! 

Stretch marks? Between week 34 and now…those little marks under my belly button has now turned into full fledge marks and are also above my belly button.  So sad. 

Sleep: Mostly on my right side now…but still comfortable. It helps that I am purely exhausted once I hit the pillow. 

Best moment these last couple of weeks:  Baby organization weekend!  We spent an entire Saturday getting our last baby items and getting everything ready!  I may have gone a little ridiculous with the organization.  Everything is labeled and categorized.  I know it is doubtful that it will stay that way with the chaos of a newborn but it makes me relax.  His cradle is put together and just ready for a baby! Friday we also picked up our travel system and got our hospital bag packed.  We also got to celebrate Liam's BFF one more time.  Cortney and I ( and Brit's aunts and family friends) hosted Ryder's family shower.  I was very pleased how it turned out…very beautiful.  

Miss Anything?  Eating normal size meals.  I officially have very little room left.   

Movement: More than I would like at the moment.  He likes to stay wadded up tightly on the right side of my abdomen and then stretches his feet up under my diaphragm.  All that pressure on my right lung makes it very difficult to breathe.  

Food cravings: Nope.

Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nope.

Labor Signs: I have had my first few painful Braxton Hicks.  They were in my back and stretched across the left side of my abdomen.  I have heard this is a really good chance that I will have back labor.  Whomp Whomp. 

Belly Button in or out?  Popped out officially... 


Wedding rings on or off?  Still off and currently sitting in a Robbin's Brothers box freshly cleaned and redipped.  


Happy or Moody most of the time: ANXIOUS! COME ON BABY BOY!! WE ARE READY TO MEET YOU! 


Looking forward to:  Meeting our boy… that is the only thing missing.  We are ready for a baby.   

Doctor Appt on April 26th:  Pretty much just a belly check…They also did my Strep B test but we won't go into what that entailed… One last sono scheduled for next week!  I am curious to see how big this little stinker is...

34 Weeks...



How far along: 34 Weeks!  Yeah I know I didn't make my 32 week post… Sorry.  I also want to apologize for my blog being under construction…I will get my act together soon :)   

Total weight gain: At this appointment I went ahead and asked my total weight gain…it was actually 34 lbs… I must have missed a week in my calculations somewhere!  

Maternity clothes? All the time…I officially miss my real clothes!  I did score a cute pair of skinny jeans at Goodwill for $5!  They are thinner then the jeans I have on in the picture so they are much cooler for the ever warming temperature.  

Stretch marks? I noticed some little ones under my belly button :( 

Sleep: Surprisingly well…I think the 3rd trimester exhaustion is starting to set in so I could pretty much sleep standing up.

Best moment these last couple of weeks:  MY BEAUTIFUL BABY SHOWER!! I will have a whole separate post for that but blessed doesn't even describe how I feel by all my sweet friends. 

Miss Anything? Still... Walking normally.  I have the waddle now.  It just feels funny.  I also get out of breath really quickly.  

Movement: Less kicking but plenty of wiggling and stretching.

Food cravings: Nope.

Anything making you queasy or sick:  At week 31, we discovered that I had developed shingles.  Just a small spot on my back.  Luckily, we caught it very early and we were able to stop it from spreading any further.  No pain.  God was in total control of that situation because it could have made for a very miserable end to my pregnancy. ANNNND How about that awesome  stomach bug that invaded the 2nd grade and then decided to attack me with a full force this weekend (the reason behind the very unattractive picture).  I have been known to puke from time to time.  When I puke it is with every fiber of my being while using my entire body.  Being 8 1/2 months pregnant and puking in this manner…DOES NOT WORK!  I was miserable for a solid 48 hours.  Pray you don't encounter this superbug.

Labor Signs: None, thank the Lord. 

Symptoms: Just pure exhaustion

Belly Button in or out?  Out by the end of the day...


Wedding rings on or off?  Still off and currently sitting in a Robbin's Brothers box freshly cleaned and redipped.  


Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy and very thankful for such a wonderful pregnancy so far. 


Looking forward to:  Getting organized … I can't stand the chaos that currently has taken over my dining room :) 

Doctor Appt on March 22 and April 19:  Just belly checks…Everything is measuring perfect! His heartrate is still very strong.  Dr. M is very very pleased with the fact that his is such an active baby.  My next appointments start my weekly appointments… CRAZY!  My next post will be at 36 weeks!
