36 weeks

*How far along?: 36 weeks=9 months=omg. do you realize that you have babies in the 9th month?!?
*How big is your baby?: still a large cantaloupe...between 5.5 and 6lbs!
*Total weight gain?: I'm sure it's a little over 18lbs now. Pretty sure each foot gained 2lbs this week. We'll find out on Wednesday!
*Sex: BOY! Grayson Benjamin:)
*Maternity clothes: I am literally dreaming of wearing regular cute clothes this fall. skinny jeans, please!
*Stretch marks: 2 tiny ones where I didn't use my tummy rub. so yep, now I am REALLY lathering it on!
*Movement: I felt his actual foot this week! So weird!
*Sleep: I guess it could be worse. Waking up a bunch to go to the bathroom & my sides still hurt throughout the night.
*Best moment this week: Highchair is in the kitchen, baby tub is ready for a bath, jumperoo is sitting in the computer room, and bottles found a home in our cabinet! Yep, getting organized.
*Food cravings: my stomach has no room for food.
*Labor signs: BH contractions have started. Feels like someone is stretching the inside of my stomach muscles trying to get out. I keep having dreams that my water is breaking. I'm paranoid of it breaking in my bed! ew.
*Belly button in or out: my belly button officially came out of the closet.
*What I miss: my ankles.
*What I'm looking forward to: hospital bag will be ready this week AND the carseat bases will make their final move to the cars! ....yeah, to say this was a BUSY week would be a major understatement. I feel like I saw my husband for like 10 minutes all week! We will definitely be doing these things this week. :)
This week marked the end to an era. I have often said that the skinniest parts on my body have always been my fingers and my feet. Those days are no longer. The wedding rings are off...even my fake one! (mainly because of a certain icky green stain being left..ha!) AND my ankles have decided that they are taking a vacation. They had enough of carrying around this baby and disappeared.
My once skinny feet and visible ankles tanning in Jamaica...

aannnddddddd introducing: fat feet and cankles.
womp, womp, womp...

Well, your toes look pretty! And, I need to tell your bloggy friends that you are the best-natured pregnant woman I know. You are such a trooper in this heat, on the playground, in car-rider line (which you won't let me even do for you), and you never complain! I think you look fabulous!

You're in the homestretch - how exciting! I'm so sorry about your swollen ankles and fingers - that must be so uncomfortable. But, I have to say, you look fabulous!

Laura, I'm dying laughing at this post. So excited for you! Grayson Benjamin sounds like a great name... (full disclosure, my first name is Benjamin) :) I'm praying for everything to go smoothly. Sounds like you're all prepared...except you have no idea how much you're going to love your baby boy. What a blessing.
