36 Weeks

Thursday, January 22, 2015
How far along? 36 weeks!
Total weight gain: I've gained 26 pounds.
Maternity clothes: Yep!
Best moment this week: I had another amazing baby shower on Saturday.  James and Steph came up from Saint George for the shower and it was fun to spend time with the family over the weekend.

Look how adorable and yummy!  This doesn't even show the two cute banners.  I have the best family.

I wish I had a picture with everyone at the shower!  I keep forgetting to do that, but we snapped this picture of all the Mateer girls at the shower.  It was so great to see all these beautiful ladies.

Saturday night we took the kids to a pet store to see the puppies.  It was adorable!  I wish I had a picture of Ellie with the puppies too, but she wasn't overly interested in sitting still enough to hold the puppies. :)

Movement: She is still moving a lot and I love it.
Waist diameter: 30.5 inches at waist (or the most narrow section since my waist is gone), 40.5 inches at the widest section of my belly.
Food cravings/Aversions: I haven't had ANY caffeine during my pregnancy, but I've been wanting a Pepsi or Dr. Pepper since day one!  I finally gave in and had one this weekend!
Labor signs: Sometimes I get Braxton Hicks contractions.
Belly button in or out?  It's starting to pop out a little bit more!  It's still not an outie that you can see through my shirt.
What I miss: NOTHING!  We are just so grateful for this little miracle.
What I am looking forward to: I'm really excited to finish buying all the things we need for the baby and get the nursery organized and decorated just the way I want it.
Milestones:  36 weeks!  The baby is approximately 18.66 inches long (from head to heel) and weighs approximately 5.78 pounds.  Approximately. ;)
Realization of the week: We are so blessed to have so much support from amazing family and friends!  This week I started sorting through all of Little B's things to see what we still need and I was overwhelmed with how generous and loving people have been!  Is this really my life?? :)

Other things: 
Only 4-5 weeks left until she comes! :)
