36 weeks

(Since I have gotten some big chunks of the nursery done, I decided to do my pictures in there this week. A little pre-preview of one corner of the room at least...)
How far along? 36 weeks, 4 days. Due date is in 24 days!!
Total weight gain: About 30... zoiks maybe a little more, it seems like in the last several weeks of pregnancy, the weight just piles on!
Stretch Marks: Notta one! I am so thankful.  

Maternity clothes? I can definitely see why women who are 39 weeks pregnant live in sweats....
Sleep: I am still able to sleep through the night (a blessing I am very thankful for!) other than getting up to pee and occasionally waking up in a crazy sweat.

Best moment this week:  Got quite a bit of the nursery done, packed mine & Liam's hospital bags, & got to cross a few other big things off my 'to-do before Liam' list. AND we did our childbirth class... that was fun :) :)
Miss Anything?  I miss being able to just produce a cute outfit out of any of my clothes....selections are so limited these days.....
Movement: crazy crazy movement that makes my whole belly hop!!
Food cravings: It seems like right when my feet start to swell and I have to lay off the salt, all the foods I want are realllly salty!
Anything making you queasy or sick: nope!
Gender: Oh Boy!
Labor Signs: Just Braxton Hicks, sometimes a few a day, but nothing to write home about.

Symptoms: My feet no longer look like feet. :/ I thought maybe I'd escape the pregnancy feet-swelling... NO SUCH LUCK! It really came from out of the blue this week, and it only seems to get better if I'm laying down with my feet up. (Which is never....)

Belly Button in or out? outeroo

Wedding rings on or off? hand swelling yet....

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! Along with nervous/anxious/excited/nervous/anxious.

Looking forward to: Tomorrow is my last day of work for awhile, so I'm looking forward to finishing my to-do list and then RELAXING!

Showing: It's funny the looks I catch people giving me when I'm in public that they think I don't see. It's that 'holy crap that chick is really pregnant, I wonder if she's going to go into labor right here?!' look......

This is how I feel about the fact that I ACTUALLYHAVETOGIVEBIRTH
in, like, 24 days-ish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  1. LOVE all the Chevron print! Soooo cute!! AND that face is EXACTLY what I feel thinking in 38 days it could be happening!! EEK I think that's what's MOST nerve racking!

  2. Ha.... your the cutest! the nursery looks great! love the colors and the chevron.
