36 Weeks!

I'm 36 Weeks Pregnant!

Check out those swollen legs!  And, this is after a day and a half of bed rest!  They look SO much better than before.

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: Baby is the size of a cantelope, according to the bump.
Total Weight Gain: Gained 36 lbs!  I have gained a ton of fluid weight the past two weeks.

Belly Growth: 19 inches.

Maternity Clothes: Oh yes!!  Hardly anything but!
Gender: It's a boy!  Jaxson Jeffrey Ellis

Movement: All the time.  I am so glad, because with everything else going on, it's important to me to know that he is alright in there.
Sleep: I LOVE sleeping.  I feel so blessed that I haven't had any trouble sleeping.
Symptoms: High blood pressure, swelling, headaches.  Bordom for bed rest.  Very hot.  All the time.

Cravings: I've felt so off this week that I haven't really been that into food.  I have eaten a few brown sugar pop tarts though...
Emotions: Worried about my health and taking time off of my job before I planned on it.  Upset that I am on bed rest, but thankful that Jaxson is alright.
Best Moments of the Week - Getting to spend the weekend at my parent's house!  We had a wonderful trip and I got a whole day of my mom to myself :)
I hope you are all having a wonderful week!
