36 Weeks

How far along? 36 weeks- I can't believe I'm here!
Total weight gain: I'm not so good about weighing myself...oops!   
Maternity clothes?  Getting dressed has become a challenge.  I'm pretty much wearing the same thing over and over. I don't see the point in purchasing any maternity clothes since I have 3ish weeks left.  
Stretch marks? None.               
Sleep: I'm in the "I can sleep all day, any day, anywhere" mode.  I experienced this in the first couple months of pregnancy- and it has, for sure, returned.  However, getting comfortable while trying to sleep is something else. I manage to ALWAYS be tired though.                  
Best moment this week: It was Christmas! I got to enjoy holiday food without feeling sorry about eating too much. It was so nice just spending the day with family and a few friends. A nice relaxing day.           
Miss Anything?  Wardrobe variety. I received a new jacket for Christmas but it doesn't seem to fit like it should...humm! However, the comfy clothes that I received fit perfectly and will be well used while I'm on maternity leave!                   
Movement:  At any given time I have a lopsided belly. Colson has decided that his favorite  place to be is sitting on a nerve that makes my entire lower body feel like it's fallen asleep. I can get him to move for a bit but then he is right back in this position.       
Food cravings:  None...but I sure enjoy those Christmas leftovers.         
Symptoms:  I am super congested, although I've had this issue throughout my entire pregnancy. Sore neck, back, ribs, and hips. Hate to be a complainer!          
Anything making you queasy or sick:   The scallop I tried on Christmas Eve...not a good idea.
Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks contractions come and go. Yesterday morning I had one that shot pain into my back.  Crazy!    
Happy or Moody most of the time: I'm happy most of the time. However, I will admit to crying a lot! For no given reason and there is really no telling how long it might last. Haha! Most of the time I'm alone when I let out the tears but my poor brother has seen them a few times.
Looking forward to: Holding Colson in my arms and finding out what he looks like! While Christmas shopping my mom and friend Heidi were making predictions as to what they think he will look like. It is just so much suspense!!!
