Bumpdate 36 Weeks

It's been a long time since I did one of these and I want to be able to look back at the end of our pregnancy journey, so here we go...

36 weeks, getting closer!

How far along: 36 weeks

Baby Size: A papaya 

Weight gain: 18 lbs

Maternity clothes: Pants yes, but I've only bought a few maternity shirts. I've mostly been able to wear a lot of my regular shirts. Side note, I've lasted this whole time with 3 pair of $20 maternity jeans/jeggings from Wal-Mart. They've been great! I just couldn't justify spending a lot on maternity clothes. I didn't need them until I was well over half way into pregnancy plus we don't know that we'll have more children so I didn't want a huge amount if I didn't need them.

Stretch marks: Nope
Sleep: Can't complain. Once I figured out the most comfortable way to use my pregnancy pillow, it's been fine. As long as it's between my knees and I have another pillow to hug and prop the belly up, I'm good to go!  
Gender: A sweet baby boy! Bennett Hayes <3 
Movement: Oh yeah, lots... And hiccups at least 1-3 times a day. I love it. 

Best moment this week:  We had our 36 week ultrasound this week, we loved getting to see him again! He's measuring perfect at about 6 lbs 3 oz and he's in position and ready to go. Now we wait. They also did the group B test, one more blood draw to test my platelets and I got the Dtap shot. All the sticking was worth it to see him ;)

Looking forward to: We're really just relaxing this month while we wait. We got everything done that needed to be completed so the month leading up to him making his arrival would be chill. Relaxing, dates, pedicures, etc. 

Food cravings: I would say that cereal, peanut butter, blueberries and iced coffee have been pretty consistent "cravings" for me. I wouldn't really call them cravings, they just sound good to me all the time. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, nothing at all  
Labor Signs: Nope, nothing yet...  
What I miss: I don't miss anything honestly. It will be kind of cool to be able to move freely again and not have issues breathing (makes me feel like I'm going to have a panic attack sometimes) but it's certainly not been anything to complain about. 
Symptoms: Just my growing belly and having to pee all the time, honestly that's it!  
Nursery: Done and we just love it. We had so much fun working on it and getting it ready for him. 

Belly Button in or out? In but it's getting a little more flat. 

Wedding rings on or off? On!

Mood: Great!

We can't wait to meet you little man, when you're ready of course.

Bumpdate 19 Weeks + Gender Reveal!

How far along: 19 weeks 2 days. I can't believe next week is already the half way mark!

Baby Size: A mango - 5.98 inches and 8.50 ounces

Weight gain: Not sure. At my last 16 week appointment in December I had gained 3 lbs

Maternity clothes: Nothing yet

Stretch marks: Nope
Sleep: Sleep is still great, can't wait for bed each night. 
Gender: A sweet baby boy! Can't say we were surprised one bit, everyone in his family has boys. I can't wait to meet our sweet little Bennett Hayes in June <3

Movement: Yes, I started feeling him around week 17 and feel him daily now. Sometimes it's a pretty big movement, typically just little ones. Dustin actually got to feel him the end of week 18, which was awesome! He'd been waiting, it was a neat moment. 

Best moment this week:  We busted out the fetal doppler Sunday night and listened to Bennett's heartbeat for a while. 

Looking forward to: Next week is our big anatomy scan. Looking forward to seeing him again and getting a little extra gender confirmation ;) 

Food cravings: I am definitely craving more spicy things than usual, but I still crave my sweets too. I could probably live on cereal. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, nothing really has this whole pregnancy 
Labor Signs: Ha no..
What I miss: Honestly, if I had to pick something it'd be a cold turkey sandwich. I can't really say I miss anything though.  
Symptoms: Besides my belly starting to grow a little and having to pee all the time, nothing. 
Nursery: Dustin put the crib together this last weekend. We're in full nursery planning mode. If I had to explain our theme it would be Rustic antique with navy & gray. This is kind of my inspiration...

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On!

Mood: I feel pretty good, I can't really say I've been moody or anything..
