36 Weeks

How many weeks along: 36
Belly button innie or outtie: Right now it's neither, it is flat.
Baby is the size of a(n): Honeydew! She now weighs 6 lbs and is anywhere from 18-20 inches long! We get a growth ultrasound today for a better estimate on how big she really is!
Baby Movement: She is still rolling around, and making my stomach look all funny-like!
Any stretch marks? is a sad day......the stretch marks have appeared on the belly. I guess when they say it's all in your genetics is true, because I've been lubing up the belly from the get go......and they did not stay away! I just hope not many more appear!
Cravings? Still no midnight runs for Andrew! But we do have a bottle of M&Ms (courtesy of my sis) that seem to be dwindling pretty fast!
Weight gain: I'm just going to answer this one with yes....yes there is.....
Other pregnancy symptoms: My feet were big fat frodo feet last week! But a nice pedicure and parrafin and hot stone massage on them (courtesy of my mother in law) made the swelling go down, and now they are pretty!!!! And Braxton Hicks seem to be coming much more frequent, but nothing timeable.
Overall feeling: I definitely had an "Oh crap" moment this week. Andrew and I were just talking about how on a typical day, we come home, and usually put up our feet to relax, and watch a little tv. Well no more! Once baby Meyer comes, gone are the days of relaxing with just the two of us! It's definitely becoming real, finally! And that scares me just a little bit!
And since I missed a post on week 35, here are the two week pics.

34 Weeks

How many weeks along: 34
Belly button innie or outtie: It's an innie, and I think it's going to stay that way!
Baby is the size of a(n): Honeydew! She now weighs 4.5 lbs and is anywhere from 18-20 inches long!
Baby Movement: Now that she is bigger, I feel more rolls and big pushes, no more quick jabs. And this month I have felt hiccups!! :) Almost everyday she gets them, they are the cutest thing!
Any stretch marks? No new ones, stomach is still stretch mark free (keeping my fingers crossed it stays that way)
Cravings? None to really mention, but I do have ice cream once a week.........more of a it's hot out I need some goodness rather than a craving I think.
Weight gain: I'm sure I've gained a little more, have my appt later today, but from my last appt, I've gained 26 lbs.
Other pregnancy symptoms: The Braxton Hicks contractions are coming more frequently, which is warm up for my real labor! They don't hurt, sometimes it's uncomfortable. I am getting up in the middle of the night every night now to pee, and it's still uncomfortable to move around in bed.
Overall feeling: Can't believe there are only 6 weeks left!!! It's slowly feeling very real....and I have my first shower this weekend, so super looking forward to seeing all my family and friends!

Look at that big ole belly!

Maternity Photo Sneak Peek!

So here is a sneak peak of our maternity photo shoot........


We aren't doing Maternity Photos, but I am attempting to take some photos myself and 'doctoring' them up a bit. Here's the real photo....
So did I fool you? Does the first one look real? Be honest!
And oh yeah, I still use "Psych" in my daily vocab, don't judge!

32 and 33 Weeks

Two weeks in one!

32 Weeks
33 Weeks
Baby is definitely getting bigger! No more quick, cute jabs. Now I feel the constant rolling and moving from her. I'm also getting Braxton Hicks a lot more frequent. The contractions don't hurt, but just tighten my belly up, and sometime make my belly look all deformed!!
We've started our day care search!! Not something I'm looking forward to, but it has to be done. And in all actuality, we probably should've started this sooner! We're realizing all of the day cares have waiting lists, some are 6 months up to a year! We're trying not to let this discourage us, since we won't need care right away.
Today is 34 weeks, and I hope to post tomorrow a new picture AND my pregnancy update! (I know, two posts in two days, who am I kidding?)
