36 Weeks!

*How far along?: 36 weeks 1 day

*Weight gain: +1 lb so 21 lbs total

*Sleep: Bad week of sleep for Brogan = REALLLLLY bad week of sleep for me

*Stretch marks: none

*Best moment of this week: Some super sweet ladies at church threw me a Baby Sprinkle and I got some of the CUTEST outfits, blankets, and other PINK baby items. I feel so blessed and loved.

I went shopping with my mom and Brogan after the Sprinkle and picked out GIRL BEDDING! Woohoo!

*Movement: oh yeah...and she wants OUT :)

*Labor Signs: nothing serious, just some cramping at night

*Food cravings: still Ocean Spray cranberry-grape juice (2 bottles this week), fresh pineapple, key lime pie...I guess tangy stuff

*What I miss most: when my maternity clothes fit lol! My tops are getting pretty snug

*What I'm looking forward to: finally getting the nursery together

*Measuring: Ok...I was 33 1/2 cm. at my 34 week checkup. The midwife measured me on Friday and I was 31 cm. She measured again and said she could MAYBE get 33 cm. if she really stretched. She said that if my measurements aren't up by my next appt. this Friday that they would schedule a growth ultrasound. Obviously, I hope baby girl is doing great and that she's just on the teeny side, but oh how I PRAY I get another u/s! I had two 3D u/s with Brogan and I've only had one this pregnancy. I like things to be fair :)

*Milestones: Your baby is still packing on the pounds — at the rate of about an ounce a day. She now weighs almost 6 pounds (like a crenshaw melon) and is more than 18 1/2 inches long. She's shedding most of the downy covering of hair that covered her body as well as the vernix caseosa, the waxy substance that covered and protected her skin during her nine-month amniotic bath. (

**Sooo, about having that perfect name picked out...I'm more confused now than EVER. It's so frustrating. I thought I had decided (since Tadd is pretty much okay with all of our final choices) but I just can't commit. I guess we will take a list with us to the hospital and wait until we see her to choose her name.

36 weeks at my Sprinkle...I love these tulips!!
