36 Weeks

Okay-seriously, somebody pinch me! Is there really only 4 weeks until my due date?! Seriously!? WOW!
Nothing really too new to post about! Pretty much the same as last week except I guess I can say that my big pregnant belly is getting lots of attention from strangers - lol! Grocery store, the mall, drug store - you name it-comments are made. All very nice of course! I had to laugh though - I was in a greeting card store today and these 2 older ladies probably in their 70's walked past me and one said to the other "Be careful Dorothy, you don't know if she's contagious and we definitely don't want to catch what she has". She was obviously joking and I found it really funny coming from these 2 old, white haired, little ladies! People offer to let me in front of them in line and are always asking about when I'm due and how nice it will be to have a Christmas baby (Now that the holidays are actually here people say how nice it is as opposed to before when people would comment about how awful that would be and how this kid will get 'ripped off'). I actually think the holidays are a great time to be pregnant!!
I don't really have any more new or different cravings. Its not so much food now as it is drinks. I still crave orange juice but not nearly like before-I think I get my vitamin C fill from those little clementines that are out during the holidays. I crave milk a lot now! I love a big glass of cold milk and also I love cold water! Just fill me up with liquids and I'm happy!
Still not stretch marks which shocks me (and I'll say it again - I'm knocking on wood). I feel like I am getting bigger each and every day. Turning and/or getting in and out of bed is getting pretty difficult! Sometimes I just can't get comfortable but once I do I sleep well-until it's time for pee break #1 but then I go back to sleep ;)
My belly button is still very much in and I am pretty sure it's not going to pop which is fine oh fine by me-a popped belly button kinda creeps me out! haha!
Today we went and had some maternity photos taken! It was a lot of fun and the photographer emailed me a couple 'sneak peaks'. I'm only going to post one. Some of the pictures she took are a little to personal/intimate to share with others-sorry! This one that I'll share on my blog won't even make it to facebook as I am not going to post any bare belly-ness on my facebook-no way, now how, not happening!!! But there are some that I won't even share with the blog or anyone other than myself and John! It was really special and a great afternoon and the woman who took our photos is awesome! I am so glad I found her! I cannot wait to see the rest of the pictures!!

beautiful! I had some done a couple weeks ago...will post a couple (probably not bare belly) in the coming weeks when I get them! 4 more weeks, yikes!! Hope you are still feeling well...I'm starting to get a bit uncomfortable, but that could be because I continue to do too much....
