36 weeks & the Bump!

How far along? 36 weeks!

Weight gain/loss: I was afraid to jump on the scale this a.m. and find that I had gained 3-4 more pounds, but there was no change. Yay! Total weight gain is 28 lbs.

Maternity clothes? I hate wearing maternity jeans and prefer shorts/lounge pants.

Stretch marks?
The hubster has confirmed that I indeed have a few stretch marks above my belly button. The battle wounds of pregnancy have arrived. I will try my hardest to wear them with pride. :)

Sleep is eh. And getting in & out of bed is painful at times.

Best moment this week?
Getting the armoire/drawers put together, washing baby clothes and putting them away (those baby socks are too cute!) and having the chandelier added to our nursery. Thanks again to my parents for their purchases and helping put things together.

Food cravings:
Sweets. Chocolate! And milk.


Belly button in or out?
I have an "outtie".

There is still a lot of movement from Miss Liv and can I just say that I HATE Braxton-Hicks contractions. They are so annoying and uncomfortable. And they are becoming more frequent. Ugh.

What I miss?
My pre-pregnancy weight. It's getting really exhausting having to carry around all of this extra weight. I know my body won't be the way it used to be after Olive arrives, but I will definitely be happy with less weight on this frame. :)

What I'm looking forward to:
Having the nursery completed.

Milestones: Our baby girl is still packing on the pounds, gaining an ounce a day. The most important thing she is doing now is developing her lungs and respiratory system. At the end of this week, our baby will be considered full-term! I start my weekly appts. next week. I can't believe it. It's like I blinked and I was in my 9th month and from what I hear it can be a very looong last month. :) My fundus size was 37 cm and baby girl is still head down. :)

You are so adorable! And ALL belly! My stretch marks showed up around 37 weeks, bummer, but as you know all work it!

My favorite thing about this is that your 36 week pic almost lines up with your 4 week pic on the sidebar and there's a good comparison lol. You look SO cute, I can't stand it. You're seriously making me miss my belly. I know you're uncomfortable, but try to enjoy it as much as you can. It's all over so fast. I'm getting excited!!
