36 Weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights: How Far Along: 36 Weeks (9 Months Pregnant)!!! Size of baby: Watermelon (19 - 22" long, 6.5 pounds) Total Weight Gain/Loss: +12 pounds Maternity Clothes: Just the one dress I bought and the one shirt that was a hand me down. Everything else is regular clothes (mostly pjs these days). Gender: It's a boy! Denver Ray Fountain Movement: I can feel him rolling around in there - to watch it looks like my stomach is possessed. It's pretty cool and creepy all at the same time! Sleep: Not sleeping that great here lately. It's VERY hard to get comfortable! What I miss: The occasional glass of wine or margarita! Cravings: Nothing and nothing even sounds good to eat - it's too darn hot! Symptoms: Nausea, upset stomach, headaches, backaches, hip pain, pelvic pain, heartburn - I'm a barrel of fun these days. Best moment this week: D turning 30! Only 4 more weeks (and only 1 more week 1 until we're full term)! The Dr confirmed that we will have to schedule a c-section for Denver's birth. Denver is just a big boy (was already in the 85th percentile for weight as of 2 weeks ago), so he is concerned about trying to deliver him vaginally. It looks as if Denver will be here around September 9th. We'll find out for sure in the next two weeks. We start going weekly now, so we'll have another appointment on Monday!

Remember to bring a pillow (to be comfortable) and for the ride home. Good Luck :)

My friend Jennifer had her baby on Sept 9th! Can't believe he's going to be here so soon!
