36 Weeks!!



Front view of the bump, taken yesterday.


How far along?  36 weeks! Almost there!!
-
How big is the baby? Harper is packing on the pounds at the rate of about an ounce a day. He weighs almost 6 pounds!
-
Weight gain?  As of today, I have gained 30 pounds!!! Let's hope it is not too hard to loose.
-
Stretch Marks? After applying all of this belly balm, I better not have any!
-
Sleep? Still not comfortable when I sleep but I am sleeping quite a bit!
-
Best moment of the week?  Watching Erik put together the new crib and move in the new furniture. I just love it. And it is so fun to see everything come together. I am so ready to finish up all the decor and see that little man in his nursery. Although I have a good feeling he will spend the first few months of his life in our room. And I won this awesome stocking from "Living A Beautifully Blessed Life"  blog. YAY!


-
Food and cravings? Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream. I am obsessed. And banana pudding. I found the best recipe. I will have to put it up on the blog this week. I think I am going to make some on Wed. I have a hard time eating full-sized meals now. I get full really fast. I guess because he is taking up so much room in there!
-
Movement? Still kicking a bunch. He loves to kick during church service and late night.

What I miss? I actually miss working. I have been working on baby stuff... you know getting the nursery together, washing baby clothes, preparing as much as possible. But I miss work.
-
Belly Button? Flat! bye bye belly button.
-
Looking forward to? I am taking a few pregnancy classes this week. They are usually fun and very informative. So I am looking forward to it! And I started packing the bags for our Charleston trip! ;) And I started packing my hospital bag. Any advice?

Milestone? I had my weekly checkup today. I am 2 cm dilated. The doctor thought that was great and said I am further along than a lot of women at my stage of the pregnancy. But she also said I had to come in before our Charleston trip next Tuesday morning to make sure I have no passed 3 cm.  If so, they think it is better to stay close to home incase baby comes early. So I hope Harper will stay in there a little longer!! I am really looking forward to our Charleston trip. :)

Here is a side view so you can really get an idea how big the bump is:

  4. Oh, wow, anytime now! How exciting. It's been fun following you on this journey. Can't wait to see pictures of your upcoming arrival.

    Suitcase? Toiletries. Sounds silly (obvious), but I remember wanting to put on some make-up and brush my teeth. I never wore the gown I brought, so I felt pretty for visitors with my face done.

    Have a good day!

That Cherry Garcia must really be working for you :) Thanks so much for sharing with all of us... getting SO excited for little Harper to get here!

    Love,
    Mimi

  10. You are so dang cute! I don't think I even looked half as good as you when I was 36 weeks. And I hope your little guy stays in there so you can enjoy your trip since you won't get to for awhile once he arrives. ;)
