36 weeks

Symptoms:  I feel great somedays and not so great the other.  I have had a lot of ligament pains on the right side this week, especially after going walking Tuesday morning.  I am not quite as tired as I have been so that helps a lot.  I still have trouble breathing and I have to take really deep breaths sometimes...this usually happens when I am sitting.  I have had more pain in my back this week.  My belly button is almost completely out.  With Anna Riley, my belly button looked more like a crater or deep hole but its a lot different this time. 

Weight gain: 27 lbs.
Maternity Clothes:  The options are getting very slim
Sleep:  Sleep is not the best.  I have to pee quite a bit and I am literally rolling out of bed.  Also, around 4 or so most mornings, I wake up to go to the bathroom and can't go back to sleep for like an hour.  So, if you get a blog or facebook comment from me in the early morning hours you know why! :)

Movement:  Movement has slowed down a good bit and now when she moves around it usually doesn't feel so great.  I am sure she has ran out of room!

Cravings:  Anything with cream cheese ( I don't think I can really blame that one on pregnancy!!)  I am eating the caramel apple cream cheese dip I talked about earlier in the week as we speak. 

Dr. Appointment:  Everything looked great at my Dr. appointment today.  The group B was negative, iron looked good, weight gain still about a lb, baby measured great so we were all good to go!  Cant believe we are only 3 weeks away!  :)  I am BEYOND ready to meet my sweet Ava Kate!
