36 weeks

How Far Along? 36 weeks and 2 days! OMG, we have 5 days (yes...DAYS!) until full term and 3.5 weeks until due date!

Maternity Clothes? The usual. Work pants and jeans are maternity, otherwise no way.

Stretch Marks? No. Still hoping to avoid those!

Sleep? WOW. Just realized that my problem with sleep may have been (for the past 2 YEARS!) that our bedroom was toooooo bright! We got new curtains in our bedroom to make it DARK and I have been sleeping like a baby (except for the 2 pee breaks in the night.) since Saturday. I love darkness. We are going to get blackout curtains for the baby's room too...darkness really really helps with sleeping for me so maybe it will help keep our daughter asleep too? maybe just wishful thinking but we'll give it a try!

Best Moment of the Week? My maternity photo session on Sunday! It was so fun and the pictures turned out great! We did them at the lady's studio in her house. I did some alone, some with Cosmo, some with hubs and Cosmo, some with just hubs. We did a few outfits, most were belly baring...and we did a few topless and a few full on nudies! eek! The nude ones are very tasteful and only side views. She sent us a link with all of our photos but you can't save any of them so I have none to post right now but when we go back for our baby shoot we will get a cd with all of the photos so i'll post then! I love them!

Another great moment was that we got the mattress for the crib so I got to put the bedding on it and it looks so cute!

Movement? Little girl is getting her feet (or something) lodged in between my ribs and it hurts!
Also my belly is always contorting in weird ways and I love it!

Food Cravings? Nothing new.

Gender? GIRL

What I miss? I'm not missing a thing. Just super excited!

What I'm looking forward to?Appointment today (and then weekly appts from now on!!!) and our pre-natal classes this weekend! We should have done these a while ago so i'm relieved that we are finally going to get our butts in gear and learn something!

Weekly Wisdom: ?

Milestones: Photos done!

Emotions: All over the freakin' place! mostly anxiety and excitement! But I'm still really moody and can totally snap from being super nice to super bitchy in a matter of minutes (usually I revert back to super nice again quickly thank goodness!)

Anyways, I hope you all have a wonderful week! I think my American friends have a long weekend coming up! Jealous! Enjoy the turkey fest!



  1. I can't wait to see these pictures. I'm sure they are beautiful.

    I have loved following along throughout your pregnancy. I know it's easy for me to say, but time has really flown. :) Congratulations.

  2. Yay, I can't wait to see your maternity pics! Glad your sleeping better too!

  3. I can't believe you're already 36 weeks! I've been reading every day but it still caught me a little off guard. That is such great news.

    As for the black out curtains, they are a GREAT idea in your baby's room. I just went for a sleep seminar and during the nap session she said your baby's room should be an 8 on the darkness scale (10 being blackout). That is impossible to achieve without blackout curtains or some kind, so go for it. Believe me, you will want that baby to nap!!!!

    Can't wait to keep reading!

  4. 36 weeks has given me a ton of anxiety too. I actually had an hour of false labor yesterday! What a tease! Glad you got your maternity photos done and are happy with them :) Only a few more weeks left!!! EEekkk

  5. 36 weeks, wow, wow, wow!! You are so close. Can't wait to see some of the maternity photos, glad you love the pics.

  6. I cannot even believe you are 36 weeks! WOW, time has gone so fast.
    I can't wait to see your maternity pics! And hoping the days go fast to get you to your mat leave. We are sooo lucky to have a year off!!

  7. Congrats on 36 weeks!! Yes, I am convinced a dark room is the key to a good night's sleep. Our room is pitch black and I love it!

    Can't wait to see your maternity pics :)

  8. I'm with you on darkness - I sleep with a sleeping mask to block out even the clock light! I cannot believe you're so close to your due date!!!

  9. holy crap you are days away from full-term! AWESOME-NESS! I'm sure your maternity pics are amazing, so excited to see 'em. xo

  10. I cannot beleive the big day is so close! I am so happy for you! Post pics of the nursery!!
