BumpDate: 36 Weeks



How far along: 36 WEEKS 

Feeling: Great!! But not so great at night…

Maternity Clothes: No- I have been lazy this week after recouping from my cold. So I’ve been in yoga pants and T’s. Easy.

Sleep: Sleep is not that great…Once I’m asleep it’s Fabulous. It’s the falling asleep part that gets me. Now that I have about 26 days to go, my back hurts and I’m having Braxton Hicks, false contractions. And Baby So is ALWAYS awake and kicking during this time. I try to breathe threw them, but I always end up in tears. Ralph is awesome and he will rub my belly and it puts Soph to sleep EVERY time!  

Best moment of the week? Spending time with Ralph. Gosh I love that guy! He is my all-time high, as good as it gets **In the words of Blake. So I can’t even fathom the love I will have for him and Sophia when she arrives. 
 
Movement: Always, my spicy little poppy girl.  

Food cravings: Nothing- but Ralph and I BOTH have been loving Fresh City and Boloco’s so we usually pack the dogs up and go on a Saturday Night “Date” and pick up food and eat our stir fry or wraps outside! It’s such a beautiful drive because the leaves are changing to reds, yellows and orange! I love the fall and it’s exciting to look forward to our little tradition we have got going on for the past 4 months!


Food aversions: 
None.

Belly button in or out? In. Doesn’t seem like it’s going to pop out either, which I’m happy about because I’m sure it would have freaked me out!

Rings off or on?: On. With 26 days until she arrives I’m not sure I’m going to have to take off my rings. Which makes me Happy Happy Happy! I love looking at my big Rock and envisioning saying “I Do”…to think on this date next year I will be Married to the best love I have ever known. There are no words. October 4, 2014!!!!!!!!!!  


Goals for Next Week: Finishing getting any last minute things done. I’m officially done with work in 2 weeks! And the BIG NEWS that I spoke of months prior is becoming a reality. I’M TAKING A YEAR OFF!!!! I will be tutoring 10 of my students in two block sessions of 45 minutes (5 students each) so I will be “working” for 90 minutes a week, but basically not working.  Then it’s off to teach 6th Grade, god willing. I’m playing it by ear for now but that is kind of where we stand as of now…and I think Ralph is happy to have a stay at home bride to be. Maybe if I master clean house, happy baby/dogs and Dinner he won’t want me to go back EVER  ;) HaHaHa we will see about that.

What I miss: Piping HOT Jacuzzi Baths in our Master Bathroom, with candles lit, Godiva chocolates, freezing Cold Ice Water in my pink LL Bean bottle, essential oils *Lavender and Eucalyptus (5 drops of each), mud mask on and Netflix Movie’s playing! *Yes I did this often before we found out I was pregnant, 3-4 times a week!!! I love to pamper myself and Ralph loves to be able to watch his truck/logging shows in peace ;)
 
What I'm looking forward to: Having a Family!! Ralph and I have dreamed of this day…We love every aspect about Family life.   

Milestones: The house is ready for her!

Thoughts: Just excitement and NERVES. I’m for sure a wimp, I got a flu shot today at my Doctors appointment and I may have cried, OK I DID!!! The nurses and doctors there get a kick out of me but I was Positive that if I got this flu shot I would end up with some weird reaction or ailment and end up like that girl on youtube that can only walk backwards after getting a flu shot! I didn’t want to be injected with some freaky virus from Guatemala and die! They quickly assured me that NO I would not end up walking backwards, it was NOT from Guatemala and I would be just fine!! I may need to bring all the girls there gift baskets as well as the hospital staff when I go into labor! Although they did say they always look forward to me coming in…I think its because they get a good laugh! HaHaHa
