Bumpdate Week 36

Due Date: November 18th

How far along: 36 weeks! I can't believe that we will be meeting our sweet baby in less than a month.
Size of baby: About 6 lbs and 18 inches long 
Total weight gain: I go back and forth between 12-14 lbs gained
Maternity clothes: I've only purchased two maternity items so far. I bought a maternity t-shirt from Target that I love, and the leggings in the photo. They are to die for! Find them here.
Stretch marks: None! I've been using Bio Oil pretty religiously every morning and every night to prevent them.
Sleep: I'm convinced that the lack of sleep that pregnant women get, is just preparation for the lack of sleep once the baby comes. It's rough.
Best moment of the week: My amazing bestie threw me the best baby shower last weekend. It was beautiful and so fun to celebrate with everyone! This little boy is so lucky.
Miss anything: I miss sleeping on my stomach more than ever. Also, hot dogs.
Movement: Really big stretches and wiggles each morning and night. It's so fun getting used to his personality in there.
Food cravings: Just food in general at this point. Ha!
Anything making you queasy or sick: I've been so lucky with no sickness so far. 
Have you started to show yet: Oh yeah. This belly is out there! I swear it gets bigger by the day.
Gender: Baby boy <3
Labor signs: At my appointment this past week, my doctor said that I was 1/2 centimeter dilated and 20% effaced. I know it can stay like that for weeks, but it's a crazy feeling that labor is coming!
Belly button in or out: It's an outie for sure!
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy and also so nervous!
Looking forward to: Meeting our sweet boy! We're so nervous but SO, SO excited!

If all goes according to plan, my next bump date will be on my due date! Fingers crossed that this baby stays put for another few weeks!
