36 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:
How far along:  36 weeks & 1 day
Size of baby:  Watermelon (19 to 22 in, 6.5 lbs)
Total Weight Gain:  36lbs.  My weight has really fluctuated!  I weighed Saturday morning and again Saturday evening and somehow had gained 6lbs throughout the day.  I was obviously holding a lot of fluid weight that day.  Thankfully after drinking lots of water over the last few days I am back to the weight I was Saturday morning.  Obviously I need to watch my salt intake.  (And my powdered donut intake.)
Maternity Clothes:  I wear the same pair of maternity jeans almost daily.  Thank goodness I have these jeans.  And I wear mostly all maternity shirts except for a few sweaters that still stretch around my big belly.  
Movement:  She is still moving all the time.  She will get into some positions that make me very uncomfortable.  Recently I had to pull over on my drive to work because I was so uncomfortable and I couldn't move much since I was driving.  After I walked around the car she moved out of the position she was in which helped alot.  
Sleep:  What's that?  I'm still getting up a few times each night and lately Cain has decided to wake up every morning around 5:30am so I'm not getting as much sleep as I'd like.  I guess it's God's way of preparing me for sleepless nights with an infant.
What I miss:  I can't say I really miss that much.  I'm actually a little sad that my pregnancy will be over in just a few weeks.  I've been very lucky to have two great pregnancies!
Best Moment of Week:  The crib arrived this week!  We received gift cards from friends, family, and coworkers after the flood.  We used a gift card given to us from my Aunt and Uncle to buy a crib and mattress from Walmart.  Thanks Aunt Jeanette and Uncle Charlie.
What I'm looking forward to:  I have a Dr's appointment tomorrow.  Although I'm not too excited about the exam I'm excited to find out if I've started progressing and getting ready for birth.  I'm hoping I haven't yet.  I have way too much to get done.

I can't believe you are 36 weeks already, wow, time has really flown. I will be 19 weeks on Thursday, I can't believe I'm that far along to, almost half way there! You look great, you are glowing in that picture. I wish you tons of luck on your final weeks of nesting and I pray baby girl hangs in that belly until it is truly time to come out. You are in my prayers. What fun things have you done to prepare Cain for his baby sisters birth if any? I know he is really to young to understand.
