{36 week BUMPdate}

Hello!!! Am I really doing a 36 week BUMPdate? Wow!! 4 weeks is going to fly by and I just hope I'm ready!!! I'm as ready as I am ever gonna be...that's for sure! I would expect to go into labor near my due date or a little after since I was 2 weeks late with my first and 1 week late with my second. I'm really not in a rush. I like being pregnant and although I may not like the aches/pressure...I do like that I have baby boy all to myself these days!

I feel like I am nesting....for sure. I have been online shopping like crazy for baby boy....making sure I have everything I need!! I feel like I have blocked out the newborn stage with both of my babies and feel pretty clueless. I am sure it will all come back to me once he is born! Right????

How Far Along?  36 weeks 

Size of Baby: The size of a large cantaloupe. (6 lbs. 19-22 inches) 

Gender: Baby boy

Weight Gain: 24 lbs.

Maternity Clothes: Target actually had a great sale over the weekend. 40% off maternity using the Cartwheel app. so I went ahead and grabbed a couple more maternity dresses and a tank top. It is close to 100 degrees outside these days.....dresses are the coolest option for sure!

Nursery: No clue. :) We won't be planning the nursery until our new house is built which is a couple months after the baby is born. Baby boy will be sleeping in Mom and Dad's room for the first few months which I don't mind at all!! I did buy a Fisher Price Rock-n-play for him to sleep in. I also have a bassinet that I need to put together. 
Movement: He is moving a lot! His movements definitely take my breath sometimes. I can definitely tell that he is running out of space. 

Symptoms: Heartburn, a lot of round ligament pain, achy back, slightly swollen feet and ankles.

Sleep: It is getting harder and harder to find a comfortable position at night. Most nights are okay. I wake up quite a few times but I usually get at least 6-7 hours of sleep a night. I am enjoying that while I can!

Cravings: Hmmm...I guess anything cold!! It is so hot outside....I have been craving homemade ice cream and fro yo!

What I Miss: Being able to find a comfortable position easily.

Best Moment This Week: Going through my son's old clothes and pulling out things that would work for baby boy. I am trying to get organized and have ordered quite a bit to get prepared. I am getting very excited and it is getting very "real" to me!!! 4 more weeks!! EEEEKKK!

****On a side note: I found this really great tutorial on how to make a pregnancy silhouette using your iphone. I tried it out and I loved it!! Literally took me 5 minutes and it is just a fun little picture to have!! Try it!!

Here is mine:
