Pregnancy Quiz

How far along? 36 weeks, 1 day

Total weight gain/loss: Jury is out on this one. My scale says I've gained 1.5 lbs since last week, Dr.'s scale said I gained FOUR lbs. I write down my weight every morning. I'll just go with the dr.'s scale and say I'm +39 lbs but I'm not totally convinced thats true.

Maternity clothes? Yes.

Stretch marks? Not yet.

Sleep: Some nights are better than others.

Best moment this week: Getting the house and front of the house decorated for Christmas. Rob put up two deer outside, our "lame" outdoor Christmas tree (its cute, Rob thinks it looks a little pathetic), and the lights around the palm trees. I think our lawn is the most festive one on the block. Oh and Rob almost slipped on Bob's real name at Thanksgiving. I don't think anyone noticed but I did. :) I'm still shocked I haven't slipped yet.

Movement: Yes.

Food cravings: Chocolate cake because I made some the other day. And no, it has nothing to do with my "4 lb weight gain."

Gender: Boy

Labor Signs: Nope

Belly Button in or out? In/flat

What I miss: Walking without pain. The balls of my feet and heels hurt.

What I am looking forward to: Massage on Thursday, going with my mom.

Other Updates: I had my first internal at my Dr.'s today. She said she could feel his head through the cervix. Rob and I thought she was able to touch his head but she laughed and said, no, cervix is closed. Sounds like labor is not in my very near future. She said she doesn't like people to go past 1 week of their due date - they try not to induce if they don't have to because the chance of having a c-section goes significantly up for people who are induced. Rob and I are convinced Bob will be born on Christmas.

Bob weighs about 6 lbs (same weight as a crenshaw melon - whatever the heck that is) and he is over 18.5 inches long.
