36 Weeks

How Far Along: 36 Weeks
4 left, that's right 4 weeks left!!!

Size of baby: crenshaw melon 
about 6 lbs and 18-19 inches long

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 24 lbs

Maternity Clothes: scrubs. I wear the same pair of black scrub bottoms everyday to work.  I have to wear running shoes to work and tall or compression socks so this is my only option other than jeans or sweats which I don't think would go over as well as scrubs.  I would have to venture to guess I'm one of the worst dressed accountants out there these days!

Movement: he has slowed down quite a bit which I have read is very normal.  I enjoy the break from the internal pummeling I was getting but I really still like to feel him.  It is comforting to feel him move around even if it hurts!

What I miss: being able to tie my own shoes or put on my socks.

Cravings: Food - I'm hungry all the time.  

Symptoms: very painful ribs/back.  I had a gallbladder ultrasound this week because Dr. M thought it may be caused by gallstones.  I haven't heard the results of the ultrasound yet so I'm assuming no news is good news!

Best Moment This Week: I had a really good day at work today.  I feel as if I was able to accomplish alot and that things are moving forward.  It feels so good to have that kind of a day. I've been really nervous about being gone on maternity leave so feeling comfortable with my situation will make it so much easier.

Milestones: full term in a week!!!  BRING IT ON!

What I'm Looking Forward To: SHOWERS!  I have a work shower on Friday and a Ruston friends shower on Saturday.  I won't lie - I think the thing I'm most looking forward to is getting a little Hannah time at the Ruston shower!!  I haven't seen her in WAY too long since she moved south so no matter what happens I KNOW Saturday will be the best day of the week!!  I know it will be 2 days of spoiling for William and I.  So thank you all in advance!!!
