week 36

Yikes- I'm almost 37 weeks and haven't posted this yet.

About the baby? "They" say Kaden's almost 6 pounds (but our doctor thinks he's bigger) and more than 18 1/2 inches long.  He is getting closer and closer to breathing on his own. 

Maternity Clothes? at this point (and probably here on out) whatever is comfortable and fits

Stretch Marks? still in the clear

Gender? boy

Movement?   yes.  I feel a lot of lower pressure too.

Sleep? this has been getting tough again.  Kaden has to be the longest baby ever!  He's got a foot or something stuck up in my ribs at night and yet I feel an arm or something else jabbin' my bladder at the same time.  With those 2 things combined, it makes for a rough sleep some nights.

Food Cravings? nothing

What I Miss?  my normal size feet, ankles, hands, and face.  But it's all for our boy... and I wouldn't change that for anything!

Symptoms? half innie/outie belly button, swelling, swelling, swelling, mild case of pregnancy carpal tunnel, and a nasty cough (which may not be due to pregnancy)

Best Moment This Week?
1. going to the doctor
2. buying our stroller/car seat system (post to come later)

Looking Forward To? Our doctor said he'll let us see Kaden at our next appointment on Thursday!  I'm looking forward to this because we haven't seen him since about 17 weeks.  Plus, the doctor said he's "a big baby" for someone my size.  We aren't really sure what that means, but maybe we'll find out more on Thursday.

I think you look GREAT! Does the swelling go away when you elevate your feet? Or is it just down hill when you're this far along? I only ask because I'm newly pregnant and I'm so nervous about the swelling, ha ha!

Glad you're feeling good! My doc said that the baby was measuring on the smaller side. It's funny how different things can be! Excited for 37 weeks...and full term!
