Pregnancy: Week 36

36weeks7

Nine months in!  Is it wrong to say that I'm hoping this is my last pregnancy update?  It probably won't be but it's a little more than wishful thinking.  I've gone from slightly uncomfortable to wanting to crawl out of my own skin.  Maybe it's the winter dryness or the fact that I'm always itchy but I'm going a little crazy.  Other than that, my contractions are pretty much the same.  I'm still on medication to keep them farther than two minutes apart and I'm planning to stay on them until the 30th.  My doctor is going on vacation (I'm a little freaked out) and I'll be taking them until she comes back.  I'm trying to keep B in as long as possible, even if it means I have to endure all these crazy pregnancy symptoms.

As you can see in my last pregnancy post, my nursery is nearly done.  With the addition of a few small purchases our little girl seriously has everything she could really want and more.  Thanks mostly to our family and our friends who went above and beyond at our showers :).  Oh, and did I mention the hundreds and hundreds of diapers that were gifted to us?  It was insane.  Here are a few pictures from our family shower a few weeks back:

From now on I'm just playing the waiting game at home.  I'm doing my best to take it easy and keep baby B as happy and healthy as possible while she's still inside of me.  She's doing great, being a crazy kicker and is maintaining her head down position.  Let's just keep our fingers crossed that she waits until at least New Year's to arrive!

    1. They don't hurt yet, but they've gone from barely noticeable to stopping me in my tracks. Once I can't smile through one it's hospital time!
