36 weeks. One month countdown!

Today marks 36 weeks and 3 days. 25 days to go! We are getting really excited and cannot believe it is almost here. It is time to get focused... get the hospital bag packed and get everything ready at home. Once again, are you ever ready? Of course we still don't have a few baby essentials, but we plan on making a few baby store runs this week. (Doesn't that sound fun?!!)

How far along? 36 weeks.
Baby Size: About 6 lbs! and 20.5 inches long.   Total weight gain/loss: I’ve definitely topped the 30 mark.  
Maternity clothes? Mostly maternity. Getting dressed for work is becoming painfully difficult.
Stretch marks? Nada.
Sleep: Getting good sleep just lots of shifting sides & bathroom breaks.
Best moment this week:  Going to a fun dinner with friends on Friday night. Trying to pack in the nights out on the town before we are on house lock down! Also, my MIL and her sisters threw a nice little luncheon for Baby H this past weekend. Lastly, more work on the nursery. John set up the lamb swing & bouncer so its officially looking like baby land at our house!
Miss Anything? Oh ya know, bending over, walking normal, tying shoes. The normal. It is so hard to bend over and pick things up around the house.
Movement: Everyday around 2pm and at night before bed. Definitely a decrease in movement since baby H is chubbing up, so it’s nice to hear a healthy heartbeat at the doc.
Food cravings: Lemonade, strawberries, blueberries…and angel food cake with whip cream. You know I’m going to add a sweet in there!
Labor Symptoms: I think I am feeling occasional Braxton hicks or slight cramping.
Aversions/Anything making you queasy or sick:  No.
Misc:  Cannot believe we are so close!
