36 weeks 5 days

This week, Baby is the size of a: Watermelon

How far along? 36 weeks 5 days

Due date: September 3, 2012

Total weight gain/loss: 19 pounds

Maternity clothes? Still wearing them.

Sleep: I get about 3 to 4 hours of good sleep and then it's toss and turn and interrupted for the next few hours - same as before

Best moment this week: Baby Showers are finished & now I'm just putting everything away. I also packed my hospital bag & Easton's diaper bag 

Movement: A TON! He has been head down since 20 weeks and his butt goes into my right rib cage and his feet & hands go into my lungs & left rib cage.

Food cravings: No cravings still. But definitely getting more hungry faster.

Symptoms: Hard time breathing, I'm on Zantac for heartburn & acid reflux YUCK! My pelvis feels like it's going to separate at any moment & I'm pretty sure I'm only awake a total of 8 - 10 hours a day. LOL

Gender: Boy

Labor Signs: I've been having Braxton Hicks for a little bit now & the other day I had contractions every 20 minutes for about 2 hours and then they went away. The contractions were just uncomfortable not painful

Belly Button in or out? My turkey timer is ALMOST popped out! But it's completely flat at the moment.

Feeling toward Pregnancy: I'm ready to be done!!!! But I still have a lot to do & I want him to be as healthy as possible so he can cook much longer. I would love if he could come on September 2nd which was my Grandpa Robins birthday but I REALLY don't want to go over my due date!!   

What I miss: Seeing my feet! HAHA I miss having energy to clean, cook or just get out of bed. Nesting hasn't kicked in really so it takes all I have to cook & clean. I can't wait to get back to tanning & the gym. Luckily I have amazing family that will watch him whenever I need a break! :)

What I am looking forward to: I am now having weekly appointments, at my last appointment my blood pressure sky rocketed so I had to go down to L&D for an NST & BPP (I think that's what it's called) everything was fine my blood pressure went back down to normal (which it has been the whole pregnancy). Easton's heart beat was PERFECT & the ultra sound came back PERFECT! I don't quite know what happened at my appointment but hopefully it doesn't happen again!!

Milestones: Finishing up the nursery!! I'm 1 load away from being done with baby clothes washing & all we need to do is finish hanging items in the nursery, putting together all the items we've gotten & finish ordering the items we didn't receive but still need!
