36 weeks!

How far along?: 36 weeks yesterday
Baby is the size of?: one app says watermelon and one says swiss chard? and he SHOULD be around 6.3 pounds but according to my sonogram, he's measuring quite a big bigger than that! 
Maternity clothes?: ooh yes
Feeling? feeling good, but also feeling very large... obviously. he dropped this week, so the pain under my ribs is gone but a whole new set of pains are here that are more... down low if you will. glad to have the relief under my ribs when i sit though! much more comfy to cut and fold for oh louise! 
Best moment this week: Getting all the baby clothes and linens washed with my mom! They all smell so sweet like baby now!
Worst moment this week (I added this one!): Having to be checked into l&d yesterday due to my stupid white coat syndrome!! Usually at my dr appts, after the first high, ridiculous blood pressure reading, they can get it down to normal once my nerves have settled, but yesterday it just wasn't happening so to be safe they had to send me to labor & delivery to have it monitored and run some blood tests. It was totally fine & the first time they checked my blood pressure in l&d it was completely normal.. just a tad annoying that Peter & I had to spend 2 hours in the hospital for my dumb white coat syndrome! Better to be safe than sorry, I know.. but still annoying.
Miss anything?: Umm, being a normal size so I can bend over and put my socks on without a major struggle. And of course wine & other alcoholic beverages. Sorry not sorry!
Movement: Yes lots of kicking and uterus-parties going on inside me.
Food cravings: Not really.. I mean i want to eat baked goods ALL the time.. but I've had phases like this pre-pregnancy too, so I dont think I can blame it on the baby. :) 
Anything making you queasy or sick?: Nope!
Labor Signs: A good amount of contractions... and according to the dr yesterday he is extremeeely low.
Belly button in our out?: In.. kind of... people who have seen it know what I mean. Its a special looking belly button.
Wedding rings on or off?: On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy & excited! 
Looking forward to: Meeting our little guy sometime in the next 4 weeks!!
