how far along? 36 weeks ~ size of a bowling ball or head of romaine lettuce
total weight gain: 30 lbs // belly is measuring 2 weeks behind (i wonder if it's because she's so vertically stretched out in there?)
maternity clothes: now that i'm off work, i've pretty much been living in my pj's :)
stretch marks: nope!
sleep: tossing & turning a lot and when i get up to use the restroom, i feel like a thousand pounds
best moments this week: i didn't have to wake up at 5am!!! // had my first ever pregnancy massage, long overdue! // decked the halls // played full-on catch phrase over facetime with my family, the best!! // went on a black friday shopping spree with the in-laws and started filling in the holes on our list, so thankful! things are really coming together, especially the nursery
missing anything? i always miss family the most after a visit // it stinks not being able to pop by brother's or sister's place for a laugh or chat on the couch with mom & dad. i sure wish they could witness more of this crazy amazing time in person.. maybe for baby #2!
movement: the usual, lots
food cravings: definitely took a trip to Michael's just to buy those wilton candy melts...what on earth?? mini has funny taste :)
anything making you sick or queasy? chicken
labor signs? no? having some sporatic sharp pains deep in my pelvis, but the doctor says that's from her head burrowing down so low. oh mini...
symptoms: hips are relaxing and more pained, can't bend down worth beans (unless i don't plan on getting back up)
belly button in or out? half way out
wedding rings on or off? my engagement band was officially off most of the week, never thought i'd see the day!
mood: feeling a little more prepared, but at the same time, completely unprepared. i guess that probably won't change :)
looking forward to: seeing her precious face! // and picking a pediatrician... any tips on questions to ask them at our meet & greet appts.?
