34-36 Week Pregnancy Survey- Baby O #3

How far along? 36 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss:   I currently weigh around 185 lbs! Ahh!
How big is baby?  Your baby is still packing on the pounds — at the rate of about an ounce a day. She now weighs almost 6 pounds and is more than 18 1/2 inches long (about the size of a head of romaine lettuce). She's shedding most of the downy covering of hair that covered her body as well as the vernix caseosa, the waxy substance that covered and protected her skin during her nine-month amniotic bath. Your baby swallows both of these substances, along with other secretions, resulting in a blackish mixture, called meconium, will form the contents of her first bowel movement.- Baby Center
Maternity clothes?  Most of the time! Sometimes I wear big T-Shirts to bed, or size large sweaters. But I'm so big now that mostly everything is maternity!
Sleep:  It has gotten pretty bad in the last week or so.  I wake up constantly uncomfortable and trying to get repositioned. I do not remember being this uncomfortable my last two pregnancies!
Best moment this week:  Graydon's 4th Birthday week, spending time in his classroom, his Birthday party at my in laws, Great Wolf Lodge that weekend in Traverse City, getting to see a movie AND going out to dinner for our anniversary (we saw Gone Girl and ate at Fire Fly in TC), Pedi/Lunch -thai date with Lyn, Ava Anderson Party at my house, finishing all the painting!!!!! MOPS, doing A LOT of hair..... going downtown to the Marathon and watching Mike run. It has been a very busy few weeks and time is flying by. I cannot believe that this baby is going to be here soon!   Last weekend I also went shopping and finally bought some diapers, pail liners and some clothes/sleepers for when the baby comes.  I will have to return some of it, once we know the gender!
Movement: Yes, a lot! And it is pretty painful now. 
Food cravings:   Pumpkin cider. Fruit, juice, pizza. Baked goods in general. Fall foods! Hearty dishes.
Food aversions:  Nothing that I can think of. 
Gender:  It's a surprise! 
Names:  I think we have them settled!!!!
Labor Signs:  A lot of contractions.
Symptoms:  Painful contractions, pelvis feels like it is splitting and I am officially getting pretty swollen!!
Belly Button in or out?  Definitely out now!
Wedding rings on or off?  Still on, yay! But getting a bit tighter.
Stretchmarks? Yes, from before :)
How are you feeling?  I am feeling pretty exhausted most of the time, especially from not sleeping at night.  I also came down with a bit of a cold a few days ago so that hasn't been fun.
What I am looking forward to:  Going to Klackles this weekend with our friends, the MSU vs. MI game (go GREEN!) a field trip next week with Graydon's class to Robinettes, and MOPS. Also Halloween!  Meeting our baby! :)   I also started crocheting a baby blanket, so I am excited to see it when it's finished.
What I miss:  Walking like a normal individual and not feeling like I'm waddling...hahaha. Also not feeling like I have to pee 24/7! 
Weekly Wisdom:
  Put your feet up now and then. :)
Milestones:  Less than a month to go. Can't believe it.
Pregnancy Moments with Chris and others:  People being kind in stores, holding doors, making small talk and wishing me well etc. :)
