36 weeks

Picnik collage

We're just chugging right along! I'm not feeling as sorry for myself this week as I was last week. Maybe it has something to do with the prenatal massage, facial and pedicure I was blessed with this weekend. Maybe ;)

Our boy is pretty much just hanging out at this point...
  • He's still gaining weight - about an ounce a day - bringing him close to 6lbs. So am I, in case you were wondering, except it feels like maybe I'm gaining a pound a day. And I'm really not exaggerating.
  • He's losing most of the downy covering of hair that covered his body as well as the waxy substance that's kept his skin from getting wrinkly for the last several months.
  • At the end of this week, he'll be considered full-term! And we have an appointment on Wednesday to make sure he's in a head-down position, so hopefully all is well with that.
On Sunday, the ladies at our church had a baby shower for me and we got most of the final things from our registry - plus some really cute other things, of course. I feel so blessed by them and all the others who have been so generous toward us. I'm thankful that our son will know such amazing people.

Hopefully he doesn't wait too long to come out and meet them all :)

  1. so crazy to think that you're almost full term!! he could come any day, yay!!!!!!! we all can't wait to meet him!! and yay for getting more registry stuff, i just started getting some of ours and it's exciting! hopefully we registered for all the right stuff.. ahaha!

  2. This is the cutest idea ever. How fun will it be for him to be able to look back and read these letters later. Gosh I wish my mom would have done this.
    I didn't realize that babies ever grew fur! (Or something kind of like it at least.) Wow, you learn something everyday.
