I can't wait for Spring to get here for so many reasons:
We get to meet our little princess 
My best friend gets married 
We get to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary 
Celebrate Easter and be thankful for what our Savior did for each one of us
And get ready for summer with flip flops and the hot sun 
And I love to decorate our house

36 Weeks = 9 months

So on Monday Davey and I went to my weekly doctors appointment. ( They are not so much fun when  they check you to see if you have dilated)  Lets just say I was laughing the whole time because my poor husband can't handle somethings very well. Little does he know, labor will be worst. But in the end he did amazing!
Update: I am dilated to a 1 and 50% efface at 36 weeks. So thats a good start. But the princess can't come until after March 17 because my BEST FRIEND is getting married and I wouldn't miss it for the world.
 How far along? 36 Weeks
Total weight gain: up 29 lbs.
Maternity clothes? yep - literally leggings & maternity shirts from here on out!
Sleep:  I am lucky if I get 3 hours of straight sleep with out getting up to go potty.
Best moment this week:  The doctor visit and hearing her heartbeat and knowing I am dilated :)

Miss Anything? I miss a lot of things..but this experience has been pretty amazing & I'm a little sad that it's almost over.
Movement: still lots of movement.. hoping to feel her momentous partial somersault any day now......
Food cravings: I am literally to the point where I want fruit for every single meal.
Anything making you queasy or sick: still meat - sure hope this goes away! 

Labor Signs:  Some pressure but I don't think its anything
Symptoms: overall feeling pretty great, other than lots of pressure in my belly as it continues to grow & some pain in my hips & ribs.
Belly Button in or out? In

Happy or Moody most of the time: Had a roller coaster of emotions this week... but so very happy.
Looking forward to: baby's arrival of course!  And I am very lucky to have another baby shower on Saturday :)
