36 weeks & doin' fine


i am thirty six & a half weeks today! it's business time, people! and can i just say... i am ready.
this has been such a wonderful pregnancy. though i have nothing to compare it to, i know that i am very blessed to have been handed the pregnancy symptoms i was. i felt healthy & happy for most of it and really the only things i have to complain about is the tired feeling 24/7, the heartburn, and the stretch marks. ohhhhhh the stretch marks. but those will fade with time RIGHT!?
in retrospect, i feel beautiful and strong. i am so amazed at what my body has been able to do these past few months. and very soon baby girl will be here & i will be amazed all over again. I CAN'T WAIT TO BE A MOM!!
in pregnancy news:

  • i dragged trav to a childbirth class last weekend. we learned how to "hee hee HOO" and all that jazz. i found it so very helpful, i think travis did too. we even got to tour the hospital we'll be delivering at!
  • we moved into our new apartment and I LOVE IT! whoever invented a washer/dryer... i want to kiss them. all over. big sloppy ones. i seriously love travis for getting us this and making it so i don't have to go the the laundromat week after week.
  • at the doctor's today we were surprised with another ultrasound! she's still head down & very wiggly. and measuring 7 pounds. at 36 weeks! that's the gestational diabetes for you!! the doctor said that ultrasounds are often off with their measurements, but if not... and since babes grow about a 1/2 pound a week... i very well could be delivering a ten pound baby. let's hope my vajay is up for the task!

I hear that the hormone that causes heartburn is also what triggers hair growth in the fetus, you little girl will have beautiful hair:) focus on that!
