36 Week Pregnancy Update

36 Week Pregnancy Update, pregnant belly, 9 months pregnant, Alice Manfrida
My mom took this picture of us at my cousin's baby shower this weekend.
How far along? 36 weeks 5 days
Total weight gain/measurements: I'm up 27 lbs (3 lbs in the last week) and I measured another centimeter bigger at my midwife appointment. My belly is 40” around this week, which is up another half inch from last week.
Maternity clothes: I bought some gym/pajama shorts to stick in my hospital bag and another bra. I got a second one that isn't the kind with molded cups. So now I think I should be all set. I'm seriously so sick of buying bras. I'm also sick of wearing them because they are so hideous looking. The store I was in today did actually have a couple of cuter ones but obviously there weren't any of those in my size.

Stretch marks: Nope.
Sleep: Ugh. I don't even want to talk about it. I'm so tired all the time. I have to nap every day. I also sleep less and less at night.
Best moment this week: Holding my cousin's brand new twin babies! They are so cute! :)
Miss anything? Being comfortable. Doing anything with speed.
Movement: Still plenty of movement. The baby is just spinning around in there (literally spinning side to side...not somersaults, which is good. The head has been staying down.)
Food Cravings: Cheese and Popsicles.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Just the heat.
Gender: The woman bagging my groceries today told me she could tell by my face what I'm having but since I told her we didn't know and were waiting to be surprised she said she wouldn't tell me and ruin it, but that she did know. Ha ha! :)
Labor signs: Just feeling more instability when I move around. Also, I've been feeling movement a little lower than I had been.

Symptoms: Same. I can't wait for the heartburn to go away.
Belly button in or out? Out.
Wedding rings on or off? Both. I've been able to get them on and off so I am still wearing them out but it's getting a little annoying feeling and getting them off is a little bit of a struggle sometimes so I'm not wearing them when I'm at home anymore.
Happy or moody most of the time: Emotions are flying all over the place.
Looking forward to: I'm almost full term! :)

Thanks for reading!
