36 weeks - 9 months!!

That's right, today marks 36 weeks, which is 9 months pregnant, which means we have officially hit all of our goals!  We obviously passed 12 weeks, then we passed 24 weeks, and now we've met and are on our way to passing the ultimate goal.  This week she becomes full term and we can expect to meet her anytime in the next 3 weeks :)

How far along? 36 weeks!  9 months :D
Weight gain/loss: 39 lbs.  I have very little appetite and when I start eating, I get full easy.
Maternity Clothes?  Every day :)
Stretch Marks?  Nope.
Sleep? On and off.  I go to bed pretty early these days, but I can't sleep past 6.
Best moment this week?  We have everything all ready.  House has been cleaned from top to bottom in every room, the swing is now put together, I even packed the diaper bag.  Being ready is a GREAT feeling.  And Samantha is lucky that she is going to have a couple of cousins and friends close-by similar in age.  2 girlfriends who will only be 5-6 months younger than her, a cousin (we don't know yet if it's a boy or a girl) 6 months younger and another cousin 7-8 months younger than her :)
Food Cravings?  Milk.  Still.
Belly Button, in or out?  Out.
What I miss?  Bending at the waist.  You don't realize how much you miss it until you can't.
Weekly Wisdom? If you can be ready early, be ready.  Then, your last couple of weeks can be all about rest :)  Or in my case working on some treats I want to take to the hospital.
Upcoming Appointments?  Wednesday I go in for my 36 week appointment.  I get the results of the GBS test, MIGHT get checked, and get my LAST p17 shot!  Woo-hoo!  on average, most women go into labor 10 days after their last shot.  That would put us at Saturday, October 30.  :)  Regardless, I go once a week now and she will be here within the next 21 days.
