Hello Sweet Cheer: 36 week bumpdate


36 week bumpdate

     How am I already doing my THIRTY-SIX week bumpdate?! I truly feel like we just found out we were pregnant and I was dreaming about all the fun and preparation that was to come! And now we are somewhere between ONE and FIVE weeks away from delivery!! How can that be? 

     On the other hand, I am so ready to meet my precious son. I can't believe I'm going to be someone's mama...forever! I have spent so many days lately just thinking about Titus and who he will become. I am just beside myself when I think of all the possibilities; what sport will he like, will he be a social butterfly like mom and dad or will he be more shy, will he love to play with trucks or rocks or legos? I love him so much already, I can't even imagine what will happen to my heart when I finally hold him in my arms!

     In other less sappy news, I am doing lots of pelvic rocks, trying to spend more time on the floor than the couch, staying as active as I can and drinking my pregnancy and red raspberry leaf tea! I'm hoping these things will keep baby in the right position and get my body ready to deliver!! I'm also getting close to finishing packing my birth bag (which I will do a post on), I'm waiting on a few things from Amazon and then we will be ready to go! Also, be on the lookout for a Nursery Reveal sometime in the near future! Again, still waiting on a few things but we are getting close!

On to the questionnaire!

How far along: 36 weeks

Size of babe: Head of romaine lettuce! About 20 inches long and close to 6 pounds!

Gender: IT'S A BOY!! We can't wait to meet our son, Titus Matthew!

Husband: My sweet husband is so so excited. He is going to be the best daddy!

Maternity Clothes: Ryan's clothes....and mostly just big t-shirts! I'm waiting on these gems to come from Amazon, I've heard they're great for nursing and just post-partum in general! I ordered it in black and gray! I am also about to go purchase a few new pairs of Nike shorts. I haven't worn them in years but I need something comfy and cool for these super warm days! And I'm sure they'll come in handy post-partum as well.

Loving: Dreaming about holding my boy in my arms! I have really enjoyed picturing the moments after his birth!

Loathing: Nothing really, just playing a waiting game!

Belly Button: Still halfway out!

Movement: Constant!

Symptoms: Still lots of emotions and waking up in the middle of the night to contractions now. I've had a lot more lately so I'm praying that is a good sign of labor!

Best Part of the Week: Getting our carseat and stroller! And finishing up getting some things off of our registry! And my first (almost) mother's day!

Worst Part of the Week: Nothing, I am so so excited and ready for this boy!

Missing Most: Range of motion...this belly is a little restricting ;)

Can't wait for: This baby to be in my arms!!
