36 weeks

**I'll add the stats after my appointment tomorrow!!

how far along?  36 weeks
how are you measuring? 38  weeks (Dr. said his head is low, but not super low.  My cervix is closed, but it is soft.  She couldn't tell how thinned I was because I wasn't dialated at all.)  
size of baby? According to Baby Center our baby is 18 1/2 inches long, about almost 6 pounds, and the weight of a crenshaw melon. Dr. thinks he's about 6 1/2 pounds right now. 
heartbeat?  140's/150's bpm (at our 36 week appointment)
total weight gain/loss? +35 lbs  
maternity clothes? Lovin' all my maternity clothes.
stretch marks? Still no stretch marks!!  Still lotioning up twice a day!! I wonder if my body can my body stretch 4 more weeks without leaving any marks??
sleep? I actually slept pretty good this week.  Bathroom breaks don't really bother me anymore as long as I can fall right back to sleep when I get back into bed.  
best moment this week? I got my maternity pictures back.  I shared some of them on Friday, but I'll be posting the rest of them later this week.  I can't wait to put some up around the house! 
movement? He moves all the time.  Literally.  He is such a squirmer.  I wonder if he'll be the same after he is born?
food cravings? Nothing really other than ice cold water. 
gender predictions? It's STILL a BOY!!!  Pearson Davis Link!!! 
what i miss:  Couponing.  I haven't had time to sit down and sort my coupons in about a month.  I went to CVS yesterday and bought some diapers with some Extra Bucks that were expiring and it really made me miss it.  I've been going to the grocery store without coupons and just buying the bare minimum of stuff.  I hope to do a little bit of stocking up the pantry before Pearson gets here so I've got to sit down this week and clip & sort my coupons. 
what i'm looking forward to: An easy week at school.  I am working a half day today and getting my maternity massage this afternoon, then taking off Wednesday & Thursday, and Friday is Field Day!!  
how are you feeling? I'm feeling like my belly is out of room.  I really don't see how it can stretch and grow for 4 more weeks.  I'm really starting to slow down and tire out with just my everyday activities.  My kids at school are absolutely wearing me out.  When I come home from school I literally can't keep my eyes open.  I've been taking afternoon cat naps almost everyday now.  After school I spend my afternoon/evening doing very little and mainly sitting on the couch.
