week 36

How far along? 35 weeks 2 days!! 
Total weight gain/loss: 23 lbs
Maternity clothes? nope. maternity jeans are still too big or just crap because I can't get them to stay up. Monty ripped one of my maternity sweaters so I can't wear it anymore and I only have one other sweater. I do have a dress but I haven't worn it. 
Stretch marks? nope. I give myself belly massages a few times a day and exfoliate every other day and make sure my belly is never dry...so heres hoping! 
Sleep: still sleeping good, I wake up a bit more either to pee or for no reason but other than that I sleep well!
Best moment this week: its only Tuesday so there is still plenty of the week left, but as of now its been this new almond oil body oil I got. It feels amazing on my belly and whenever I massage it on, River goes crazy. 
Have you told family and friends: yup, everyone knows!
Movement: All the time.  Its painful now because I have a torn ligament or something or the left side of my belly and the right side is numb so everything feels so weird/uncomfortable/painful but I'm trying to stay positive!
Food cravings: watermelon, pineapple, avocado, sourdough bread sandwiches with tofurky, leaf lettuce and a bit of mayo with salt and pepper!
Anything making you queasy or sick: the pre labor contractions I've been having for a week...they happen more often than braxton hicks and they are starting to make my stomach churn. 
Have you started to show yet: oh yes. 
Leakage: yup. 
Gender prediction: Boy. and I was right!!!
Labor Signs: I'm in pre term labor and I'm dilated 1 cm. 
Belly Button in or out? In/out. 
Wedding rings on or off? on. 
Happy or Moody? Happy. 
Weekly Wisdom: I should probably rest/take it easy more than I am but I can't sit still for long even if it feels nice to prop my feet up. I'm stuck inside today since the weather was bad this morning and Luke drove himself to work and I'm ready to rip my hair out!!
Milestones: I have all the baby clothes and diapers washed!! We have River's coming home outfit picked out and my bag is 95% packed, River's is 100% packed and Luke's is 50% packed. The nursery isn't 100% complete but we only have a couple picture ledges to hang that will be used for books and I have to decide if I want to make a toy box or get cute baskets for his toys. We still have our friends shower coming up so I don't want to buy too much still but I also don't want to wait to buy things...I just want his room finished and to feel like we have all the essentials and that he can come whenever he wants, which is hopefully soon!!
