36 Weeks

Size of Baby: At our ultrasound yesterday, Campbell measured a teeny bit behind at 35 weeks and 2 days. He weighed 5 pounds, 9 ounces which puts him in the 23 percentile. Our little boy is looking good!

How I'm Feeling: I feel so, so good. Campbell has officially dropped (I'm about 99% positive it happened on Monday) and ever since then I've felt amazing!!! I haven't gotten sick once this week, my heartburn isn't near as bad as what it has been, I can breath better, and my energy levels are great. Sometimes I have crazy bad pressure since he's down so low but it's nothing I can't handle. The previous few weeks I was so uncomfortable but I feel so great now.
Cravings/Appetite: Now that Campbell has dropped, food is so much more pleasant and enjoyable. My heartburn is the worst at night and since I'm usually not ever hungry for dinner, I've been eating a little fruit with some cheese and crackers for my meal and it's helped me not have heartburn and makes it easier for me to fall asleep.

Clothes: Now that the warmer weather has graced us with its presence, I've been wearing maxi dresses every day this week. It has been so amazing and comfortable! I just purchased the black maxi that I'm wearing in the photos at Forever 21 this week. I told Scott he'll probably get tired of seeing me in it because I have a feeling it will get worn a lot here in the last month or so. I've completely given up on maternity clothes. I've found I can wear normal clothes in my normal size as long as it's got a little extra room in the waist.

Movement: Campbell is still moving really good but he's definitely slowed down a bit. I mostly just feel his little legs flailing around and that's it. His heart rate is coming in around 129 these days.
Changes in Me: I'm still measuring 4 weeks small but since Campbell looks great the doctor isn't worried about it. My belly button is gone now. It is completely closed up and basically invisible and it's cracking me up. I can't believe it didn't pop out but my Mom's did the exact same as mine so I guess I inherited her pregnant belly button. I haven't gotten any stretch marks (yet) and I'm hoping that since I've made it this far, I'm going to avoid it. I've certainly done anything and everything I can to prevent them.

Baby Purchases: While it's not necessarily for the baby, I did get something for myself to have for the hospital. It's been kind of hard trying to figure out what to wear while I'm there. I decided this from J Crew would probably come in handy. I'm looking into getting the pocket monogrammed because why not?

Favorite Moment This Week: I woke up from a nap one day this week and heard Scott doing something upstairs. I walked up there to find him building the rock and play and bouncer. I thought it was really sweet especially since I didn't even ask him to do it!
Looking Forward To: The weekend. I only have a few "free" ones left and I'm trying to enjoy them before the little man gets here. Dates with Scott, hanging with friends, running around town doing nothing....I'm trying to squeeze in as much of that as I can. Also, there's a full moon on Sunday and even though it's probably too early and I'm about 90% sure nothing will come of it, I wouldn't mind at all if it put me into labor.
