36 Week Bumpdate

How far along? 36 Weeks & 6 days

Size of Baby: Baby girl was 6 pounds and 11 oz at Monday's appointment ya'll!

Total weight gain/loss: Sitting at haha

Symptoms: Same stuff with the leg/thigh swelling and now heavily affecting right calf and sciatic nerve. Other than that- we were hooked up to the monitor to measure uterine activity and baby's heart rate and had 9 contractions in 20 minutes and heart rate was right on track! Come on baby girl!

Food cravings: This green tea with honey! Notice it's empty... 

Anything making you queasy or sick: This leg and nerve pain - makes me light headed...Still keep having thoughts of epidural in my head when the big day comes because I feel like such a wimp with these legs but at least there's a goal on the big day and I know it'll then be over.. I guess we'll see!

Have you started to show yet: I swallowed a basketball basically

Gender prediction: Girl! Miss Anderson Greer Otey (Andi)

Nursery: The rug from PB Kids came and it is perfect! Her bedding should be in next week too and wall monogram - again, not really rushing since she won't be up there for quite sometime but still so fun to go up there and decorate and sit! 


Workouts: Attempting stairs and vacuuming first floor was my activity this week.... no joke :(

Labor Signs: Just practice contractions like its my job - crampy too in the mornings especially

Belly Button in or out? flat

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy and excited but ready now...I've reached that point they all told me about - the point where your like ok I'm ready to be able to walk around again haha Can't wait to meet her so soon!!

Best Moment this week: Getting to spend some time at the bay AND getting to see her sweet face at another 4D ultrasound on Monday. She's still sportin' that pout! Love it!
