36 Weeks

Things are going good.  We are down to 4 weeks left.  Like I have said before, I am NOTORIOUS for going all the way to the end, so I don't expect this one to be any different.  Before I got pregnant my cycle was 26 days... according to that my due date is November 29th.  If I calculate by a typical 28 day cycle my due date is December 1... so we will see what Avery decides to do, but my bet is November 29th.

Here is my 36 week belly...
36 weeks...aaand and artsy fartsy one of me being all solemn (laughing at myself). 36 weeks
I had an appointment yesterday.  I was sad because my OB had a delivery and couldn't make my appointment, so I saw the nurse practitioner which isn't a bad thing, I just prefer my dr.  We did the test for Group B Strep.  YUCK!  My dr. was going to check for dilation and effacement, but the nurse didn't... so that is still a mystery.

Weight gain is GREAT! I have actually been staying the same or losing a lb! ha.  Last appointment I was 167... this appointment I was 166!!! I might actually make it to the end of this thing not exceeding my the weight I was at the end of my pregnancy with Lindsey, which was 169.  Now wouldn't that be nice? ha.

I put my Christmas tree up just as I promised.
As you can see there is a stray blue ornament in there... that would be one of the 3 handmade ornaments on the tree.  Otherwise it is decorated in all red and gold.

I know there are a lot of what I call the "Christmas Patrol" out there to ridicule anyone who decorates before Thanksgiving, but you don't scare me.  I am glad to have my tree up and I'm getting into the Holiday Spirit!  Next is Christmas music... DO YOU HEAR ME DAVE!  Christmas music! (insert maniacal laugh here)

  2. You go girl! Put that Christmas tree up!!!
    I am sooo a Christmas lover and if we were in our new place I would have my tree up already too! We are moving in 3 weeks and it will be one of the first things to get decorated in our new house!

    And you look fab. Here's to hoping your little one comes in the next few weeks (maybe a little early...that'd be nice!).

  8. You really do look fabulous!! and I have to say, I love the artsy fartsy pic too!! :-)
    As for the Christmas tree, it looks sooo pretty!! and booo to anyone who might give grief for having it up already. I'd rather have it up "too early" than only for a week or two. So I say, enjoy all that Christmas prettiness!! ;-)

  9. I've been listening to Pandora Christmas for a month now :) hehe

  13. You gorgeous girl you! Seriously gorgeous! I hope that I look even a tiny bit as amazing as you do when I have a little one!
    So glad to hear things are going well! I love that you are starting to listen to Christmas music too!
    Mine is on my ipod, so if it shuffles to a Christmas song, I don't usually change it. That is how I roll. Haha!
    Hope you have an awesome weekend girl!
