Bumpdate :: 36 Weeks

How far along?
36 weeks.  9 months preggo.  Considered full term... Hallelujah. 

Total weight gain?
I don't know how this happened, but I lost a pound this week.  So, I'm at 18 lbs.  I am amazed at how that could be, maybe I had heavier shoes last week.  Lol.

Maternity clothes?
I found dresses for both of my upcoming parties, and I actually don't look half bad in them.  I'll post pics of me in them.

Sleep?
I'm napping when I can.  I am forcing myself to go to sleep, even when I don't feel super tired.  And I have actually been waking up feeling rested.  Need to soak up these last few weeks of uninterrupted sleep... may be a while before I get that again.

Best Moment of the Week?
Finding out at my first internal that I am 1 cm dilated and that my cervix is softening!  Now, I know that this really doesn't mean much, BUT Dr. P did say that she doesn't think I will make it all the way to the 19th.  And if I happen to make it that far, the 19th will be Addison's birthday!  I couldn't be more excited about this news.  Being home with Gwen on Christmas is so important to me, as long as it's safe for Addison of course.

Movement?
Tons and tons and tons.  Girlfriend is definitely running out of room in there.  I am feeling every little movement.

Food Cravings?
Ice cream. And I had the strong urge to make choc chip cookies this weekend.  I can't get enough sweets!  Better eat them now, right?

Gender?
Girl, and it better be... her room is just about done, and it is GIRL-Y!

Labor Signs?
Nope.  I mean, a little pressure "down there" but nothing crazy.

Belly Button?
It's just flat.  And I have a faint linea negra now.

What I Miss?
Being able to breathe.  Being able to bend over.  Being able to pick up Gwen.  I guess, moving around like my normal self.

What I Am Looking Forward To?
Thanksgiving and watching that Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade with Gwen.  And giving birth... lol.

Milestones?
Nine months preggo.  Full term baby!  And finishing the room!!! We're ready for you miss Addison... can't wait to meet you!

Here's one of the dresses I am wearing to my festivities, I'll be rocking this one out on Saturday night!
