36 weeks pregnant

How far along? 36 weeks and 4 days.
Total weight gain/measurements: 23 pounds total! I was like, WHAT. I gained 4 pounds since my last appointment, two weeks ago. Oh well 🙂
Maternity clothes: Sick of them. I want to wear my regular clothes. It’s gotten to the point where I literally do a load of clothes every day because I have nothing else to wear. Same few shirts. And gym shorts are my best friend. Not to mention I can only fit into one pair of dress pants (they are maternity, of course) so I have to wash them at least every other day.
Stretch marks: None…except for the teeny silver ones on my hip that are still teeny. The red ones I thought I saw disappeared.
Sleep: I toss and turn SO MUCH.
Best moment this week: Getting the last thing we “needed” for baby’s arrival – a baby gate to quarantine the dogs into the dining room so they won’t bother us in the living room if we need them to shoo! Haha.
Miss anything? I miss…well, my regular clothes!
Movement: He moves a TON still. He no longer jabs me in the ribs though. Now it’s more like…my organs and stomach muscles and hips haha. He dropped quite a bit within the last couple days!
Food cravings: Nothing really.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Smells still make me nauseous. I have a stomach of steel so no matter how nauseous I get…I tend to only dry heave instead of actually puking. Good or bad… I don’t know.
Labour signs: He has dropped. He’s head down. And I’ve been having false labor for the past two days. I had some major Braxton Hicks yesterday morning for about 6 hours! And I’ve had a couple today.
Symptoms: Same as any pregnant woman I’m sure. Varicose veins, clumsy, heart burn, aches and pains. You know.
Belly button in or out? An outie! But it doesn’t totally stick out…I think it’s too stretched out lol
Wedding rings on or off? My fingers haven’t been swelling so I do wear my wedding band. Not my engagement ring though. I’m afraid my fingers will swell and they’ll have to cut it off me haha.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy…but anxious.
Looking forward to: Meeting Lucas David, of course, and marveling over the fact that I’ve created a damn human being ;]
