Thirty-Six + Three

Today I am 36 weeks and 3 days along.  That means I have TWENTY-FIVE days left until this little babycakes makes her appearance...well, that is, if she arrives on her due date.

There were a few days last week {that I think I blogged about} where I was feeling really uncomfortable, but thankfully that has passed.  I definitely have some moments where I am tired, or my heartburn flares up, or my emotions take over, but for the most part I am hanging in there.

Not my most favorite picture, but it will have to do.

I didn't remember my belly sticking out this far when I was pregnant with Olivia, but I looked through some pictures of my pregnancy with her and it did.  This little baby is still moving around like crazy and since she is getting so big, those movements are like WOW.  But, the doctor says she is head down, so I am thankful for that.

I am still reading my HypnoBirthing book - it has some interesting ideas that I hope I am able to utilize.  It's hard to find the time to "practice" the relaxation techniques, so hopefully I can schedule in some ME time to make it happen.

I talked to Irma yesterday and she reminded me that this may be my last pregnancy and that I should cherish these last few days of being pregnant - and she's right.  Despite the small complaints that I have, I really do feel blessed that I've had another easy pregnancy and I really DO love feeling her move around inside me and I DO love being pregnant.  {But, I'm also excited to meet this sweetheart.}

Happy Thursday from the Central Coast!

You do look beautiful being pregnant, but I too look forward to meeting my new little granddaughter. I can't believe it's just around the corner.
