Mommy Monday {36 weeks}

I know I say this every week, but the time is seriously going so fast! I've officially hit 9 months! Only 4 {or so} more weeks to go until we meet this little girl! I'm getting so excited! I still feel like I have a lot to do, but no energy to do it. Hopefully I can put the finishing touches on her nursery soon. I also need to pack our hospital bags, which I should probably do soon!

How far along? 36 weeks {but measuring at 37 weeks, per my doctor today}. I've also started going to the doctor weekly now. We're getting so close! 
Total weight gain: And I've gone up 2 more lbs to 30 lbs total. It's been a steady 1 lb/week rise. 
Maternity clothes: I am still living in dresses. Nothing else is comfortable, including my bras. I don't know why I've had such miserable luck in that department. My current bra is now too small around my rib cage. I went to Target yesterday to try and get a bigger size {38C}, but when I got home it literally is no bigger than my current one {36C}. I'd like some quality control in aisle 5, please. I've resorted to buying a glorified sports bra {in XL, mind you} with padding. Hello comfort! 
Stretch marks: The only stretch marks so far are the pesky ones on my butt. I'm still using my Honest Co. Organic Belly Balm and Nivea Q10 Plus Skin Firming Lotion every day to try and avoid them everywhere else!
Workouts: Same as last week, but with a little less energy. I just want to nap lately. 
Sleep: Sleep is very interrupted with my many bathroom trips, but I haven't been having any trouble falling back asleep. I'm still using my Boppy Pregnancy Wedge to try and keep my back aligned. 
Best moment this week: Spending our entire Sunday watching Homeland. It was so nice to not have anything to do and just be able to relax.    
Miss anything? I can't really eat peanut butter anymore because it's been giving me really bad heartburn! Bummer! 
Movement: Hiccups, kicking, seeing what looks like a alien moving around in my belly. I'm certainly going to miss all of the amazing movements once she is here. 
Food cravings: Still really loving Chocolate Almond Milk and Raisin Bran Crunch. For. Every. Meal. I could honestly eat cereal constantly right now and never get sick of it. 
Anything making you queasy or sick? Not a thing!  
Gender: Girl!
Labor signs: Just having Braxton Hicks every once in a while. Nothing else. 
Belly button in or out? Still in!
Wedding rings on or off? And I'm back to only wearing my wedding band. I just don't want to risk losing a finger. Haha. 
Happy or moody most of the time: I've been a little bit more irritable today. 
Baby Arrival Guesstimate: Still hoping for May 28th or later, but after finding out my belly is measuring ahead, who knows!
Looking forward to: Getting to see the rest of our Maternity pictures!

Until next time!
