Weekly Check-In: 36 Weeks?!?!/9 MONTHS?!?!?!?!

How far along: 
36 weeks

How big is baby: Coconut
Baby is getting closer and closer to being able to breathe on her own.

Total weight gain:
+22 pounds 
I lost 4 1/2 pounds in two weeks; yay! haha, makes this momma happy!

Maternity clothes?
Yep, but even these aren't fitting much anymore. I even had a former twin mom say that I'm bigger then when she was when she was pregnant with twins--- I was like uhh?? Thanks?? I guess....

Belly button in or out?
It's definitely out... and now it's out EVEN MORE. It's sooo sensitive. 
Ugh... Sleep is so overrated. I'm over it.

Best moment this week: 
Doc says I'm allowed to go into labor now :-) Not like I would be that lucky, but hey always a chance right?!?!? I'm 3-4cm dilated (I say 3-4 because my doctor has rather large fingers as said I was at a 3; With Gabe he said the same thing--but when I was checked by other doctor's they said a 4, and their fingers were "normal"??? lol) BUT only 10-20% effaced. He said my cervix feels really floppy and soft which is a good thing--just needs to thin out. It's also VERY posterior, which I tried explaining that with Gabe it never came down into an anterior position because of my tilted uterus, but he didn't believe me. Eghhh---sigh. OH well. Next check is in one week! 

Food Cravings: 
Oh things have gone crazy with my cravings/aversions. I literally HAVE to have a Dr. Pepper at LEAST once a day. Yep, the one aversion that has lasted 9 months has turned into my biggest craving right now.  Crazy right?!?! The other craving was some hot wings--and boy were those good.

Food Aversions:
Nothing really?? Fried foods don't sound I'll go with that.

Insomnia, lower back and hip pain (to the point where I can't walk in the morning), crazy dreams, hemorrhoids, and all the other usuals. Heartburn is back with a vengeance...even taking zantac twice a day--I'm still having to pop but hopefully that means she has just as much or MORE hair then our Gabriel did. :-) She has hiccups all.the.time!!!! Also started having BH contractions...and some real ones too.

She's started slowing down on movements. But when she moves my whole belly wibbles and wobbles. And each knee, foot, whatever it is that jabs my belly hurts like crazy!

Miss Kellie Rain
What I'm looking forward to: 
Being a family of 4. Gabe has FINALLY started saying baby-- so I can't wait until he sees the baby and puts into place that it'll be his new sister.

What I miss: 
Sleep, Energy, Fitting into clothes....


Next appointment: 
April 23rd at 2pm!!! :-)
