36 week bumpdate!

{Insert a Joey Lawrence-style WHOA right here, please} I'm HUGE.

How far along? 36 weeks

Weight gain/loss: Still 142 lbs...same as last week. Up 24 lbs. total. I was up 30 at this point last pregnancy.

Feeling: Can I complain now? Tired, crampy, incontinent, BLAH. Just blah in general. But somehow? I'm not in a rush for this pregnancy to come to an end yet. I am very excited to meet her, but I'm not feeling mentally ready.

Maternity clothes? I'm sporting that awesome "tenting" look with most of my tops. In the photo above my hand is where it is because otherwise you'd see part of my belly. Why doesn't anyone make tops that will fit for the whole 9 months?!?

Sleep: I'm up to waking about 3 or 4 times a night to pee, so, uh, not well ;)

Food cravings: Back to McDonald's fries, once again!

Movement? I feel like she is bouncing on my bladder and cervix as I walk. Otherwise I'm not actually feeling her much. I think she is running out of space in there.

What I miss? Not needing help...for everything! Mike has to push me out of bed, off the couch, help me up out of the car, put away the heavy pots and pans, bring the laundry bags downstairs and back up, etc. I don't like being dependent upon him to do everything.

Best moment this week:  Sleeping in yesterday morning. It was only until 8:30 but it was GLORIOUS.

What I'm looking forward to: Getting all of Aurelia's things set up this week. We dug her clothes and gear out of the closets today, and are planning on putting it in its place this week or weekend.

Next Appointment: Thursday, September 6th at 37.5 weeks. Not sure why they scheduled it for 2 weeks out from last appointment, as they told me only 1 week should lapse between appointments from here on out...hmm....

Milestones: Baby is now about 18.5 inches and 6 lbs!

Since I realized I'm wearing the same shirt that I was in my 36 week update last time, I thought it would be fun to see the pics side by side. I'm a little bit closer to the mirror in the 1st photo, but I think on the whole they look really similar.
