Are we there yet!?!?!?!??

Remember when you were a kid and you took a car matter how long the ride, you would drive your parents crazy asking "Are we there yet??".  Well this is what I ask myself everyday! I'm 36 weeks pregnant today and really want to "get there"! I know I technically have 4 weeks until my due date...but seriously...have you seen my belly!? There is no more room in this Inn!  
 It probably doesn't help that everyone I talk to thinks I will go early. I would be thrilled if Brett was ready to make his entrance into the world, as long as he is healthy! I feel like we are ready at home- we have the room done, the clothes washed, and the hospital bags packed! Now we just have to wait......

I do have a few more things I want/need to get done this weekend. Josh needs to put the swing together and we need to set up the pack n' play in our room, since that where he will be sleeping for the first little while. But other than that, I feel ready to bring home a baby! Well, as ready as you can be with NO experience! :)


Im thinking he dropped a little....dont you?????

*How far along?: 36 weeks- 9 months!

*Total weight gain?: 37 total- The feet probably weigh 5 lbs each haha!
NO these are not Professor Klump's feet, they are mine! Shocking I know!

  *How big is baby?:  19-20 in and 6 lbs

*Sex: Sweet Baby Boy!

*Maternity clothes: Im running out of things that fit! :( Including shoes!

*Stretch marks: Nothing new...belly is still good. Im keeping my fingers crossed that the worry is over!

*Sleep: Not great..not terrible. I wake up every hour until 3 and then sleep til 6-7. It is SOOO hard to roll over and get in and out of bed!

*Symptoms: Fat feet, fat face, sore hands, sore hips.....

*Movement: Yes, but I think it has slowed a little. He doesn't have much room so is more like slow movements and limbs sliding around

*Food cravings: Not really anything lately...I feel like Im not as hungry lately.

*Labor signs: Having some period type cramps occationally and also some Lightning/sharp pains in the cervical area....which I read means things are progressing! I get checked for the forst time next week and HOPE I am making progress!
*Belly button in or out: Flat on the bottom but the top sticks out...

*What I miss: Being able to sit up, taking a deep breath, walking normal, sleeping on my back, sleeping through the nite, not peeing every 5 minutes, my ankles! I think you get the idea ;)

*What I'm looking forward to: Dr. Appt. Wednesday...hoping we are making some progress!

*Best moment of the week: Baby shower at work :)


  1. OH MY GOSH, Sarah! Your poor little feet! I hope you are getting some nice foot rubs from Joshy. I want to see all your baby pump pics in a row. Can you make an album on FB? Love you! Hope your getting some relaxation in! can't wait to meet baby Brett! ~Allison

  2. Holy COW! Come on Brett. Come out so Mommy's feet can stop swelling! That's crazy!

  3. Still looking beautiful, though, Sarah! Love reading the updates. ;-) I'd say go sit down and put your feet up, but I know you are probably tired of sitting AND standing! LOL
