Weekly Update - 36 Weeks!

I added the new photo, since the one from this morning is really a half picture, and I want to have accurate documentation.

How far along? 36 Weeks

Total Weight Gain: 30 lbs (+3 this week) I am seriously blaming this on water weight. There is no other explanation. Especially when you consider the state of my ankles. Oh, and I have to note that I saw my Dr this week (not the evil NP) and she didn't say a word about my gain. So ha! on you, Evil Nurse.

Maternity Clothes? Everyday! Somehow I have managed to still be able to wear tops from the Juniors section, just in one size up. I bought 3 new t-shirts, 2 new tank tops and a top from the Jr's section aat Kohls this week. I think they'll be good for the transition period between pregnant and pre-pregnant size.

Stretch Marks? No change. Still giving the two (on my bum!!) the side eye, and the one I am convinced is going to be a stretchie on my boob is still in hiding. Thank goodness.

Sleep? Ah. Sleep. I feel like I never get enough. I am always tired. But the reality of the situation is that I cannot possibly sleep any more than I do. I am literally in bed around 8:30 every night (9 ish on the weekends) and I sleep until the very last moment in the mornings. Plus, I am officially up every two hours to pee.

Best Moment This Week: Dancing on the bar. :)

Movement: He has sleep and awake patterns, and the sleep ones make me nervous. I feel better when he's moving all the time.

Food Cravings: Meatloaf. Mashed potatoes. Pumpkin everything.

Gender: Boy!

Labor Signs: Nope. Although I have started noticing the Braxton Hicks. Nothing consistent, not even daily, but they are there!

Belly Button - In or Out? Still just flat.

What I miss: Beer. I want a beer. Standing up unassisted.

What I am looking forward to: So close to full term.

Weekly Wisdom: I really wish I had more wit for this section. It's always pretty boring.

Milestones: Webster is head down, and we have reached the point where if labor begins, they won't stop it!

BH's are a biotch. I have had them daily for the past month. Sometimes like 4 an hour. They are getting longer and stronger, but not closer together. Still totally irregular. Ugh! I hope it means I'm making progress!

LoL to the "Weekly Wisdon" section. And so far as cravings...Idk how you feel about it, but try Malta. It's non-alcoholic and awesome. I've never tasted beer (I don't drink), but Malta is a beverage made with Hops also (non-fermented, hence non-alcoholic), so you may sense a similarity? Idk!
