Week 36

How far along? 36 weeks!  
Total weight gain/loss: 18 pounds
Maternity clothes? Leggings are wonderful :) I'm just going for comfy since I'm mostly at home all day. 
Stretch marks: Still none.. 
Best moment this week: Doctor appointment today!! We did our first fetal stress test... they just strapped my belly up to a little machine and monitored her heart rate and my contractions for a half hour (while I was eating my Taco Bell). I got to sit back in my own little room with a pile of magazines and a nice little recliner. Stafford came to this one, but it's pretty uneventful so I don't know if he'll come in the future. The doctor said that McKinlee is right where she's supposed to be. Her heartbeat is good and my contractions were just teeny tiny and no big deal and they should get stronger as we get closer. She is still head down and ready to go! I'm so happy! Everything looks good and now it's just a waiting game!
Miss anything? Just having my body to myself. I'm excited to work out and see results instead of getting bigger every week! haha  AND I keep closing doors on my belly..  it's just way bigger than I expect.
Movement? All the time! It's been really strong and her hiccups are intense! lol I love feeling it and I know when she's born I'll miss this feeling all the time.
Food cravings:  None really, but I found out what goes into a cheesy bean and rice burrito at Taco Bell since they took it off their menu and now we go there like twice a week. Just talking about it is making my mouth water! :)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.
Have you started to show: Of course...  She just keeps growing. I think last week was a big growing week, this one's not so much which is so great because I can't be that tired all the time!
Gender: Girl!
Labor signs: More Braxton hicks, but nothing too bad.
Belly button in or out? umm in the morning it's in, but after lunch or dinner it pokes out. haha maybe I shouldn't say that because it shows how much I eat, but that's where we're at.
Wedding ring on or off? on.
Happy or moody most of the time? I'm pretty happy,
but lack of sleep gets the best of me sometimes.
Looking forward to: Next week's appointment :) haha and going into labor...  and having a baby girl in my arms! So much to look forward to!

I had my Group B test today and it was seriously no big deal. Why do I stress so much? He did it at the very end and it was like 2 seconds. Whew... glad it's over though and from here till labor I get to keep my pants on :) lol I can't believe we're at the final stretch!
