36 Weeks

 How Far Along: 36 weeks
Size of baby:   from babycenter: almost 6 pounds and is more than 18 1/2 inches long. My doctor thinks our little guy is bigger than this though :)
Gender: IT'S A BOY!! We finally agreed on a name... and that we want to keep it a secret! Okay, we've told a few people but are trying to keep it a surprise for the most part!

Maternity Clothes: I cannot wait to get rid of my maternity clothes. I never want to see them again. The weather has been so nice this week and I want to wear cute dresses and feel good about myself but I'm stuck with elastic waistbands and shirts that barely fit.  Oh well, just a few more weeks ;)

Movement: He gets the hiccups at least once a day and is definitely getting stronger and running out of room to move.  I forgot how uncomfortable a foot jammed in your ribcage is!

Sleep: I'm getting up 2-3 times a night to go to the bathroom, other than that I'm sleeping pretty well.

Weight Gain: 27 pounds
Symptoms: Nothing new, still swollen, still huge :) 

Cravings: Not much, I haven't been too hungry, I think I'm just out of room and nothing really sounds that good.  Except maybe a cherry limeade from Sonic!!

Best moment this week: No more meds!!! As much as I've loved my weekly shots in the bum (sense the sarcasm) I am so glad to be done and know that my doctor is comfortable with Baby A being born at anytime now! She said the medicine should be completely out of my system by Thursday or Friday and expects I'll start having serious contractions not long after that.  Matt and I both guessed when he'll be born... I'm thinking April 5th and Matt said April 3rd.   We skipped church this morning and spent a few hours getting the final odds and ends ready.  Avery loves putting her baby in the swing and letting him sleep in the pack-and-play.  I feel much better now that we've checked these last items off my to-do list.
