Baby M Update: Week 36

Do you like the basketball I am hiding under my shirt?! 

How far along? 36weeks
Total weight gain: 23 lbs. as of my appointment on Wednesday. And I believe it… I do feel like I have gained more.
Maternity clothes? Yep, I’ve pretty much been wearing all maternity clothes but I do have some regular tops that I can still fit in.
Stretch marks?
nope 🙂 And I’m thrilled!
Sleep: Sleeping pretty good. Have had some good days of sleeping in, after waking up super early and then falling back to sleep. lol

Best moment this week: Getting to speak with Travis on the phone again. And then hearing Baby M’s heart beat at my check up and knowing she is head down and ready to go!
Miss Anything? Still Travis!
Movement: Yep! She’s still moving quite a bit but I have noticed in the past couple of days that she isn’t moving as much as she has been in past weeks. She must be getting quite smooshed now!
Food cravings: I didn’t really crave anything this week.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, I’ve been good this week.
Gender: GIRL!!
Labor Signs: No. I’ve had a few Braxton Hicks contractions but nothing crazy at all.
Belly Button (in or out): Still in but oh so close to popping!
Wedding Rings (on or off): On
Symptoms: The usual back and round ligament pain, and shortness of breath.Unfortunately, my swollen gums are back as well.
Happy or Moody most of the time: I was happy this week. Yeah! 🙂
Looking forward to: My parents will be arriving this week! 🙂 My mom is bringing the bedding she sewed for the nursery so I can’t wait to see it in there!
