36 Week Update

WOW!!  Where did this pregnancy go??  I feel like we just found out we were pregnant the other day, but we will be holding our precious baby girl in just a few short weeks!  I still have so much to do before I feel ready, but thanks to some major help from the hubby on cleaning & finishing Collin’s room, I would be okay if she came today – well, maybe at least a few more weeks :)

I still haven’t finished her room, but we have the major items in there & ready.  Still to do: paint pink border around ceiling, finishing touches on quilt, cover rocking chair, and hang curtains.

Today I had my 36 Week appointment & my first “check” - no progress as of yet.  Of course the doctor says it could happen any time, but I really don’t like it when they tell you that because I get excited & anxious, then nothing happens.  Oh well, I am perfectly happy with her staying right where she is until she decides she is ready!

Here are the stats :)

How far along? 36.5 Weeks

Heartbeat? Holding steady around 150

Total weight gain? +22 lbs

Maternity clothes? Yes, please!  Although I did find a cute dress from my “Sprinkle” in the regular section of Old Navy :)

Sleep?  I feel like I am going backwards here – it was getting so much better, but now I just can’t seem to get comfortable.

Best moment? We had a small scare a few weeks ago since my weight gain had basically stopped & she was measuring a few weeks behind.  It was a nervous few days, but we got to see her sweet face on the ultrasound again & were reassured that everything was fine.

Cravings?  Not really – although for the first time in our 5 years of marriage I finished my carton of ice cream before Son did!!  This is big – we always take advantage of the BOGO deals on ice cream at Publix, each picking out our own flavor.  Son always finishes his off in a few days & I savor mine for weeks – not this time!!

Gender? It’s a GIRL!!!!!!  Grace Anna Vuong

Labor signs? Nope.

What I miss?  Right now I am so thankful for Collin & Grace that I am just enjoying every minute.  Although it would be nice to sleep again :)

Looking forward to?  Being able to say that her room is “finished” and holding that sweet baby girl.  

Milestones?  Less than a month to go!!

And since I hate to do a post without any pictures…here are the boys helping mommy in Grace’s room!  They each had their own drill & step stool to patch holes, repaint, and hang the curtain rod – so cute :)
