36 weeks

How far along?  36 weeks, 5 days.

Weight gain/loss:   25-30 pounds... again, depending on what mood my scale is in that day.  lol

Maternity clothes?  Yes.  I am actually running out of maternity clothes that fit!

Stretch marks?  Totally jinxed myself here.  Since my last post, I have sprouted a few stretch marks on the underside of my belly.  So far it looks like four on the right side, and one on the left. 

Sleep?  I was sleeping horribly for several weeks... waking up 3-5+ times per night just to roll over because my hips were hurting so bad.  However, the past few nights I have been doing much better and have only woken up 1-2 times! 

Best moment this week?  Realizing that Baby C will be here in one month (or less)!

Food cravings:  Nothing really.

Gender:   Team Green!

Belly button in or out?  Still about 90% flattie, but there is a tiny part that sticks out just a bit depending on where Baby C is laying.   

Movement?  Constantly!  I can't believe how strong Baby C is getting!

What I miss?  Being able to lean forwards without a human being in the way.  ;-)

What I'm looking forward to:  My next doctor's appointment -- hoping to have made some progress! 

Milestones:  I had my first weekly doctor's appointment yesterday... so surreal!  At the appointment I had my first cervical check (no big deal, and no progress yet), and my group B strep swab (OUCH!!!).  Also, the nursery is finally finished!  Now we just need a baby to put in it.  :-)


  1. You are getting so close!! I can't believe it's almost time!! You just gave me hope on the sleeping. I've also been waking up several times per night...hopefully they will decrease too!

  2. I'M SO EXCITED!! Can't wait to meet baby C, love you guys :)
