36 Weeks!

{Had to take this weeks picture from a little bit of a different angle due to my marshmallow looking face!}

Today I am 36 weeks!
My due date is ONE MONTH from today!!  I cannot believe it! :)

Pregnancy Updates:

Baby G's size: Baby G probably weighs somewhere around 6 lbs.  He is about 18 1/2 inches long (which is much longer than my stomach, if you didn't know!).

My size: Last week at the doctor I weighed 122 lbs.  I started out weighing 104 lbs., so I guess that puts me at an 18 lb. weight gain.  When the doctor measured my stomach (or fundal height) last week it was measuring at 33 cm. which is a little on the small size.  That was the same size I was at my appointment 2 weeks prior.  This concerned me a little bit.  For one, I want to make sure Baby G is growing, and for two, I don't want to be 42 weeks pregnant when I deliver!!  The doctor said not to worry, she just thinks the baby is running out of room to grow...which in turn caused me to worry a little more.  She said that his head is so far down in my pelvis that it was hard for her to even feel it.  I guess aside from all of the pressure this is a good thing according to the doctor.  His head being so low is what will cause me to dilate when I have contractions (I think that's how she explained it but I could be way off).  I just hope Baby G can find somewhere to go in the next few weeks! :)

Most excited thing: The fact that we will get to meet our son in just a month is SO exciting!

Most annoying thing: I'm all around uncomfortable!  Annoying doesn't even begin to describe it..but I'm not complaining because I'm SO CLOSE!!

Cravings: My stomach has officially run out of room.  It feels like if I eat more than about 5 bites, my stomach ends up in my throat.  I think my big cravings are gone for now!

Sickness: Just that darn acid reflux!

Next appointment: I'm officially to the once a week appointments.  I go on Monday and am interested to see if I'm at all dilated yet.  I doubt I am, but it'll be exciting to find out! :)


I don't usually take any pictures of my bare belly just because I know it's not at all attractive to anyone...but I want to look back and be able to see how huge I truly am and I knew the black shirt wouldn't do it here it is..hide your eyes!!

{The one thing I'm proud of in this picture is the lack of stretch marks..but holy veins!!  Those things are HUGE!! :)}
