36 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 36 Weeks
Size of baby: About the size of a coconut.  During our sonogram last Tuesday 2/14 the tech. told us you weigh about 6.1 lbs.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 12 lbs. gained.
Maternity Clothes: Try to wear maternity pants or leggings but it doesn't last too long as waistbands are my nemesis.  Got some new yoga pants to wear for the next few weeks and for after Maesyn arrives, but shirts are a nightmare.  Never long enough and 2-3 inches of my belly end up hanging out...not attractive!
Sex of the baby: It's a GIRL!!!  Maesyn Sidney Doss.
Movement: Lots of movement again. Last night you wiggled and squirmed for 2 hours straight.  You are squirming around as I type this.  So anxious to have you squirming around in my arms and not in my belly.
Sleep: Sleeping a little bit better, but sure will be happy to be able to sleep on my stomach again.
What I miss: Not being exhausted. And not having to pee 20-25 times a day. I think I have worn the floor down from the couch to the bathroom for as many times as I walk back and forth to pee everyday.
Cravings: Back to craving Quik Trip 1/2 and 1/2 tea and lemonade.
Symptoms: Braxton hicks and lots of tightening in my lower abdomen.  At my last appt. Dr. Moore said I was dilated to 2 cm. so we will see if I have progressed any further at my checkup tomorrow.
Best Moment this week: Getting you all set up to be Mommy and Daddy's roommate for the next 7 or 8 months. We got your pack n' play all ready, your dresser, glider rocker, clothes, diapers, binky's...everything set up and now Mommy just needs to get her hospital bag ready.  So excited to meet you and see your sweet face.  During the sonogram we could see that you have big fat chubby cheeks and a head full of hair!  Unfortunately, we could also see that you, just like your sister, most likely have the notorious Doss big toe. Let's just say I don't think foot model is in either of my girls futures ;)

Love you baby girl...can't wait for your birthday!!!
