36 Weeks

 36 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Holding at 151, making my total is 27 pounds by my scale, 20 pounds by the doctors scale.

Maternity clothes? Non-maternity shirts, skirts and dresses, but ALL maternity pants.  

Stretch marks? Just the ones on the rear.  No new ones on the belly or anywhere else.

Sleep: It varies.  I'm getting up to go to the bathroom a LOT more, to the point that I would think Ethan has dropped, although it certainly doesn't look like it.

Best moment this week: Our first baby shower! Our church family hosted a baby shower for us, and it was so nice and sweet.  Jason and I haven't been very involved with our church other than attending until recently (we just recently joined a small group that we love) so it was full of new friends as well as people we had never even met! It was overwhelming to see how many people wanted to show their support and love to us even though they don't know us very well.  We received a LARGE amount of the most beautiful, thought out, handmade items for Ethan that were even more touching to see.

Movement: His activity has picked back up this week, and has found a new spot on my hip bone to kick me in. :)

Food cravings: Still not much of an appetite most days.

Gender: Our sweet baby Ethan Bryant Orlando.

Labor Signs: Nothing at all.

Belly Button in or out? Half flattie, half a floutie I guess? ;)

Wedding rings on or off? Still on other than sleep!

What I miss: I miss SEEING Ethan! We haven't had an ultrasound in several weeks, and I miss the chance to check on him every few weeks.  I can't wait to see his face.

What I am looking forward to: Hitting full term on Friday! 

Weekly Wisdom: I have never have any wisdom, are you kidding?!

Milestones: I'm officially 9 months pregnant! :) Sometimes I stop and think about how we thought Ethan would never make it to this day and smile (and ok, maybe cry a little...hormones haha).
