36 Weeks!!

I’m 36 weeks and a few days today. Today is an exciting day though because my SIL Missy is currently in the hospital getting ready to deliver her first child – a sweet little girl named Jona Lily. We just can’t wait to meet her! Pray for her as her progression has been a little slow since her water broke this morning at 3:30 am and last time I spoke to her (around 1pm) she was only 2 cm dilated!! All you prayer warriors out there – pray for her progression to speed up and a quick delivery sometime today!!

As for me, I went to the doctors today. I am currently 1 cm and 50% effaced – which is what I’ve been now for the last 2 1/2 weeks! Doc said that the baby’s head is LOW – like he could feel it in place, ready for departure! Cori was the same way and still 5 days late, so you just never know! I go in again next Tuesday for one final ultrasound to check weight, positioning, etc. It’s getting so close, yet it feels so far away at the same time! We took a new pregnancy pic yesterday – that belly is getting BIG!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 36 Weeks

Size of baby: Finley is almost 6 lbs. … Comparable in size to a soccer ball! It actually looks like there is a soccer ball in there too! HA!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 26 lbs – man, that feels like a lot!

Maternity Clothes: Still wearing maternity tanks from Target DAILY :) and maternity shorts. Gotta keep it comfortable in this HOT weather!

Gender: It's a girl!!! Finley Grace Smith

Movement: Still SO MUCH movement!! She moves in such a way that it makes me uncomfortable at times. I am so curious to see what her personality will be like considering the ridiculous amount she moves in there!

Sleep: HA! What sleep?!

What I miss: Being able to dry off my legs and feet with ease after a shower! I almost fall over every time!

Cravings: Right now, I’d like a smoothie! :)

Symptoms: Still heartburn – oh and a HUGE belly!!

Best Moment this week: Still hanging in there with the girls at the gym! Oh, and a super SWEET baby shower thrown by my friends over the weekend. Post to come!

Week 36















Ya’ll, I am scared! Look at the difference in size!!! Ugh! I actually measured 37 weeks today at my appointment so maybe that means she will be here early! :) Pray for me!

That belly is huge!! I'm not sure if she's gonna hold out until the beach! Can't wait to see you (and maybe Miss Finely)

Seriously!! I'm hoping she either comes before the beach or sometime after .. Just not during!! I'd really like to have some R&R on the beach!!
