Mommy Monday {36 Weeks, just a little late}

I don't have anything insightful to say this week. I'm pretty tired from the school year and I'm just trying to recuperate now. Lennon just started swimming lessons and I still have my weekly doctor's appointments/ultrasounds. That will be the extent of what we do this week. Haha. 

I do have some exciting things coming up on the blog, so stay tuned! You won't want to miss it!

Our daily reality. This little peanut has quite the personality!

Ziggy even decided to join us this week!

How far along?  36 weeks, 4 days
Total weight gain/measurements: I'm up a total of 30ish lbs so far. 
Maternity clothes: Dresses, Maternity Jeans, and Yoga pants are my jam right now. Now that I'm on summer break, I have a feeling that I'm going to be living in my jammies {when I don't have to go to the doctor or take Lennon to swim lessons}. 
Stretch marks: I spied a little red mark near where my belly button piercing used to be. I'm pretty sure my belly is bigger this time around because of the extra amniotic fluid. I just ordered It Works Stretch Mark Cream to try and eliminate any new coming stretch marks, but until then I'm still lathering my belly in Burt's Bee's Mama Bee and The Honest Co. Belly Balm. I'm currently using both of these to make sure my belly is nice and moisturized. 
Sleep: Sleep? What is sleep? The last couple nights have been a bit better than the last couple weeks, but then last night around 4:45am our fire alarm went off. We could not figure out what was causing it to sound off but it was incredibly annoying. There was no fire. We're thinking that it may be because of humidity, but that is just ridiculous. Thank goodness it didn't wake up Lennon {although I have no idea how any human being could sleep through that terrible chirping}. 
Exercise: I'm still going to my prenatal yoga classes and man is it worth it. I feel SOOOOO much better after my Yoga sessions. I wish I could go everyday. Next week is my last one and I'm getting increasingly more sad about it. 
Best moment this week: School being out for the Summer {and for me, almost 6 months!}.  
Miss anything? Exercising, uninterrupted sleep, and a back that doesn't ache. Oh yeah and what life was like before Braxton Hicks contractions invaded my life. I've been having them since the second trimester and I'm just sooooo done. They are the biggest annoyance in my life right now.  
Movement:  She is still most active around 9-11pm, hence another reason I don't sleep well. 
Food cravings: Lemon ice all the way right now! 
Anything making you queasy or sick? Bell Peppers and Celery! Still!
Gender: Girl #2!
Labor signs: I'm still having Braxton Hicks, but I haven't been checked in a couple weeks to see if I'm dilated. I'm hoping to at least keep this baby on the inside until the end of June!
Belly button in or out? In, but sneaking it's way out. It's out sometimes depending on where baby is located in my belly. 
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: I've been in pretty good spirits, aside from a mental break down a couple days ago and my silly Braxton Hicks.   
Looking forward to:  Relaxing with nothing to do but go to the Doctor and Swim Lessons. I'm looking forward to spending some one on one time with Lennon for this next month before baby's arrival. 

Until next time!
