36 Weeks!!!!

(This pic was technically at the end of 35 weeks, but close enough)

It's getting close now!! Starting to feel anxious and nervous and ready all at the same time. I have a severe urge to nest but just do not have the energy or physical ability to get everything done and cleaned that I want to, while taking care of a 2 year old as well. Kind of sucks and makes me freak out, but I'm trying to except the fact that I'm just not going to get everything done I might want to. The next couple weeks are going to be crazy, i'm trying to take it easy as much as I can, but I sort of have a feeling she might come early! 
How Far Long? 36 Weeks, 2 Days
Size of Baby? Size of a honeydew! 

Total Weight Gain? About 30 lbs
Maternity Clothes?  All maternity
Sleep? Very uncomfortable at night and wake up multiple times
Food Cravings? Pop, sweets, grapefruit
Stretch Marks? Yes.
Gender? GIRL! 
What I'm Looking Forward To: Getting my body back to normal- with Jack I was not this uncomfortable and achy, but this time around I feel yucky all the time. 

Highlight Of The Week: I've got a lot done in the nursery- clothes washed, baby gear is out, babies bag is packed, starting to stock up on other household things I'll need!

Milestones: Baby is considered "early term" by the end of the week.
Symptoms: Very hard to breathe- she pushes on my ribs all the time. Back hurts super bad all the time, and I am finding it really hard to roll over or get out of bed, hard to walk/bend down, feet and ankles are swollen. Braxton hicks- lots of tightness!
Belly button in or out: Out!
