{Baby Schartz: Week 36}

How far along?: 36 weeks 
Total weight gain?: 17 lbs.
Size of baby?: Baby Schartz is the size of a Honeydew! He's massive!
Maternity clothes?: Not quite, leggings and large/loose shirts for me!
Stretch Marks?: No at this point...
Sleep?: Sleep is fine. Difficult at times, but I just roll with it.
Best moment this week: Having a little dinner date with my hubby. I'm soaking up the last few moments I have alone with him. 
Miss Anything?: I feel old. My entire body feels like I'm 65. I miss not feeling like me. :)
Movement?: Yes! Yesterday, nearly everyone at work could see my belly being stretched and disproportioned by this little honeydew rolling around in there. It's crazy when my belly is all lopsided! 
Food cravings: Notta! I do enjoy an icy cold A&W root beer, though! 
Anything making you queasy or sick?: Not really, not that I've noticed. 
Gender: Team Blue! 
Labor signs: I had my first labor scare last night! Total false alarm though and it didn't last anymore than 30 minutes, but whew! Talk about a rude awakening. I think technically we're "ready," but I'm not sure that I'm ready, ready. I mean, I'm sure I am, but the closer it gets the more thinking I do and the more nervous I get. It'll all be fine though, right? 
Symptoms: I've been having what they call "lightning crotch." It's a real thing(look it up) and it's awful! Hip pain, Braxton Hicks(the real ones) and there's also been swelling. 
Belly button in or out?: It's exactly even with my belly. Weirdest thing ever haha!
Wedding rings on or off?: I'm to a point where I'm nervous to wear it. I'm afraid I'll get to a point where it'll have to be cut off. So I only wear it for special occasions. 
Happy or moody most of the time?: Happy! We finally had the car seat installed, the house is 110% clean, and the nursery is ready. I could go on and on, basically we've checked everything off of our before-baby-arrives-list and I'm nervous, but anxious more than anything. I can't wait to meet this baby boy of ours. It's going to be wonderful!
Looking forward to: My birthday! It's Sunday and I LOVE birthdays! It's the last one I get to enjoy, before becoming a mother and before the focus shifts to our little man. :) I can't wait to soak it up and relax and unwind before Baby Schartz arrives!
