36 weeks



how far along?
 36 weeks...for the sake of this post.  I'm technically really going to be 37 weeks on Thursday!

total weight gain?
I just got back from the doctor and I weigh 149, so I am up a total of 28 pounds. The nurse said I shouldn't gain too much more weight at this point! 

stretch marks?
None! I can tell you though, I'm going to be pissed off if they decided to show up this late in the game.    

sleep?
Can we say insomniac?? I usually get up 3 or 4 times to pee, then am up for good around 6:00 am.  Guess I better get used to it, huh? 

best moment this week?
Lots of good moments this week. That's a change for once! My baby shower was this weekend and I had my weekly appointment today.  Things like that make the time go by faster which is good because I know the last few weeks feel like they drag on and on and on!  

worst moment this week?
Can't think of any....that's got to be a good thing I guess!

movement?
Yup. More specifically- movement directly on my bladder.  You know what that leads too...yup, more peeing on myself.  I'm still baffled by the fact that there hasn't been a diaper invented specifically for pregnant women. 

cravings?
Icee's and tap water.  Pretty much anything nice and cold.  I sat in the "food court" part of Target the other day and demolished an Arctic Freeze like it was my job. You know you need more excitement in your life when you go to Target to get an Icee and people watch.... 

gender?
Girl!

labor signs?
No contractions or anything.  The doctor said she has dropped even more and my cervix is "softening".  Sounds appetizing doesn't it? **gag**

belly button?
To pop, or not to pop? That is the question. 

what I miss?
Do we really need to go there?

symptoms?
If we're being honest here, my main symptom this week is bitchy-ness & my patience for stupid people is slowly running out. I've also started having the most stupendous acid reflux that ever existed which is just delightful. I throw up in my mouth about 3 times a day from it. 

Nom nom nom.

what I'm looking forward to?
Moving on Friday! Well, not the actual moving but more like getting Presley's room set up and getting all of her crap things set up.

weekly wisdom?
Never ever ever EVER Google "mucous plug" or "episiotomy".  If I would've known the specifics about both of those things 9 months ago I'm sure I wouldn't be pregnant right now.  

Maybe that's why I've been throwing up a little bit lately. Hm.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I had my weekly appointment and I seem to be right on track!  She checked me and then said the most glorious words I've ever heard...."Looks like we should be able to induce you on the 15th!"
WHAT THE WHAT???
I almost jumped off the table and gave her a big hug but then realized that I had no pants on, so that would've been pretty awkward.

As of right now I am not dilated but she is confident that I will be in 2 weeks.  I go back next Tuesday (they're closed on Monday, the day I usually go) and hopefully I've made some progress. All I need is one measly centimeter to schedule my induction!

Since I will be 37 weeks on Thursday that means I am considered "term" and can start trying to get things started on my own.  I plan on staying on my feet all day at work, going on a nightly walk, doing the "maritals" (sorry Dad!!), and maybe the occasional jumping on the trampoline during my lunch break at work.  I kid, I kid.

Alrighty, guess that's all for now. Big girl has gotta go eat now!
HOLLA!
