36 weeks with Griffin



*How far along?: 36 weeks. 9 months. yowza!
*How big is your baby?: I don't even know. Big? Yes, he is definitely big. Picture a basketball in my stomach. That's how big he is.
*Total weight gain?: 22ish pounds 
*Sex: boy!
*Maternity clothes: I'm living in comfy clothes...workout shorts, Ben's tshirts, & tank tops. 
*Stretch marks: not yet & crossing my fingers it stays that way!
 *Movement: Still moving A LOT but I'm sure it's getting pretty cramped in there. He has been getting in some crazy positions & making my stomach look lopsided.
*Sleep:I've just come to terms with the fact that I will sleep when I'm dead. I am SO FLIPPING HOT at night. We keep our house at 67 degrees each night, the overhead fan is on, AND I have a fan blowing right beside me...still? I wake up sweating.
*Symptoms: pressure, pressure, and more pressure.
*Best moment this week: Got my new Baby K'Tan carrier & stocked up on some baby essentials today at Target. I'm starting to gather things for the hospital stay!
*Food cravings: water & more water!
*Labor signs: pressure & some BH contractions now and then
*Belly button in or out: out & proud
*What I miss: sleeping comfortably. At least when I am waking up in 3 weeks it will be to feed & snuggle with a newborn! 
*What I'm looking forward to: my OB appointment on Thursday. I'm curious to see if I am pretty much closed for business down there like I was with Grayson.

You look great! Bummer that you're so hot at night. It's so hard to sleep when you're a million months pregnant! But it's almost over!!
