36 WEEK UPDATE
How far along?
36 weeks + 1 day!
How big is baby?
According to BabyCenter.com: Your baby is still packing on the pounds — at the rate of about an ounce a day. She now weighs almost 6 pounds and is more than 18 1/2 inches long (about the size of a head of romaine lettuce).

How I feel?
My body is so achy at this stage. The simplest activities tire me out and my back is always killing me. But I guess all of that comes with the territory. ;)
Per my last OB appointment, I've gained about 40 pounds.
I actually had a little bit of a scare a couple weeks ago. I wasn't feeling her moving very much so I called my OB and she told me to head to the hospital to get checked out. Thankfully, the fetal tones were good and she was somewhat active during the sonogram so I was sure I would get to go home. Well turns out my amniotic fluid was low. The minimum measurement should be 8 but I was measuring around 6.8. So I ended up having to stay overnight with an IV stuck to my arm. By about 1 o'clock the next day, my fluid was back up to 8 and I was able to go home. It's just so flippin hot here in Texas so I have to stay super hydrated, which I have been since my little hospital stay. My fluid was up to 12 at my OB appointment last Thursday...yay!

Looking forward to?
Just meeting her. And kissing her.
Yep, still sleeping pretty well. With the occasional late night trip to the bathroom. And I'm starting to wake up earlier...with no alarm clock. If you know me, you know that is unheard of! I rarely wake up without an alarm clock. Guess my body is getting ready for around the clock care of an infant.
Next Doctor's Appointment?
Thursday, August 30th
For me and my baby girl - for a continued healthy pregnancy.
To make it at least one more week to 37 weeks (full term).
I'm in full on nesting mode, so please pray that I would take it easy while still getting the important things taken care of before baby gets here.
For heart, mind, and spirit as I mentally, physically and spiritually prepare for the responsibility of raising a child.
