{36 Week Bump}

How far along?: 36 weeks! Every time I say that out loud to someone they say, "wow, already?!" lol TELL ME ABOUT IT.
Total weight gain?: 22 pounds.
Size of baby?: Baby is the size of a papaya! 18.7 inches and 5.73 pounds!
Maternity clothes?: Jeggings, leggings and my normal shirts!
Stretch marks?: So far there is a few, but they're faint.
Sleep: If we went based off of the last few nights-THUMBS DOWN! I have too much on my mind to sleep. Which is funny because I still have a checklist a mile long, but I'm always too tired to do anything. 
Best moment this week: H went to the doctor with me again this week and it was the sweetest thing ever. I carried him the long way from the car because it was cold and rainy and when I finally got inside and sat down I told him that it was a workout carrying him inside. He looked at me and said, "That's why you have to quit carrying me, mama." I giggled and said back, "I have to quit carrying you?!" He said, "Yes because I a big boy and so we can hold hands!" <3<3<3 That kid gets it. He is the absolute best. He also gets me when he rubs my cheeks or my belly with his tiny little toddler hands. We also got some clothes from my friend Natalie for Luce and I showed them to Henry and he said, "I'm going to go put them in ours room(his and Luce's room). How do I deal with that? Puddle of love over here.
Miss anything?: Working out and wine. lol.
Movement?: You guys already know. YES. She moves so much and is so intense that I had to ask the doctor to check to see if she was breech. I know it's early yet, but it gave me peace of mind to have him check. He confirmed that she is head down and I'm thinned out, but nothing more.
Food cravings: Just give me all the food. Mostly healthy food lately. Salads and yogurt.
Anything making you queasy or sick?: I get random nausea all throughout the day, off and on. It's zero fun.
Gender: GIRL <3 <3 <3
Labor signs: I have started to have a few signs, nothing super significant yet though.
SymptomsAll of them. ALL OF THEM.
Belly button in or out?: Even? lol My belly button no longer exists. 
Happy or moody most of the time?: Happy. Stressed, but happy! I haven't made all the progress that I had hoped, but a healthy baby will take all of that worry away. I'm so anxious to meet her and see her, but at the same time I'm still not ready for her to come yet. I jokingly tweeted the other day that I was fine with her staying in there until 42 weeks. HA. I'm sure I'll regret saying that. Everyone I know that is pregnant seems to be going 3-4 weeks early! Crazy! I don't think I can handle that. I'm trying not to think about it, but I'm fearing delivery more and more. I made a few final adjustments at hospital registration and just being in the maternity ward made my stomach drop and my eyes water. Why am I so terrified? Wasn't I supposed to forget all the bad stuff? lol. I will just continue to pray for a smooth (extremely easy) delivery and a healthy baby and mama.
