36 weeks!!



Please excuse the terrible hair/pic...I took this running out the door this morning, I was clearly not fully awake! :) 
 
How Far Along? 36 weeks, 4 days - 24 days to go!!! (24 days...holy crap!!)
Size? watermelon (seriously?! a freakin' watermelon?!!?), 19 inches - 22 inches around 6.5....but my girl is bigger as she was measuring 5 pounds at 33 weeks! 
Maternity Clothes? I have a small rotation these days...ha! But still only a few pieces are maternity.
Weight Gain? At my doctor's appt last week I hadn't gained anymore weight...not sure how, but I will take it!! :)
Stretch Marks? None yet, still crossing my fingers and lathering up! I am so over that smell!
Gender? Baby Girl!! Elise Kelly!
Sleep? Same as last week...not consistent, but when I do get it it's divine!!
Movement? still pushing like crazy!!
Food Cravings? still fruit...nothing else really gets me excited like it used to...guess I am over it at this point...although I do want to guzzle a huge fountain diet coke!
Anything making you queasy or sick? nope....but I am starting to get bits of nausea for no reason...what's that about?!
Labor signs? still more Braxton Hicks and they are no joke! Aaaaaannnd I had my first contraction on Friday night. Scared the crap out of me! It happened at like 1am, I got up to go to the bathroom and it started...lasted a good 2 minutes...totally freaked me out because I didn't know what it was...and man, did it hurt!! I only got the one and I think a lot of it was do to dehydration because I did not drink water like I was supposed to on Friday (I was about lemon-watered out!), but if that is a sign to come...bring on that epidural!! :)
Belly button in or out? it's out...that means I'm done right?!
Wedding rings, on or off? off :( and sent to the jeweler to get re-dipped and all pretty for me after baby girl comes! :) 
What I Miss? laying by a pool and not looking like a whale! HA!
Symptoms? braxton hicks, swelling, un-ability to do much of anything without tons-o-effort!HA!
Happy or Moody? I am very happy and cannot believe how close we are to meeting our little angel!!
Best Moment of the Week? even as painful/scary as it was...that first contraction...it just makes it all so much more real!! :)
Looking forward to...getting my new mommy mobile!! :) yes, we sold my sweet little Altima that I worked so hard to buy all myself 4 1/2 years ago (so bittersweet!) over the weekend so we are hoping to that the dealer will find our new Jeep for us in the next couple days!! YAY!!!
