36 Weeks Pregnancy Update

How far along are you? 
36 weeks!

Total weight gain? 
I gained 3 pounds this week.
I am up 14 pounds since pre-pregnancy.
I feel like it totally went to my face.

Baby Information?
Harper was flipped vertex at Wednesday's doctor appointment but I felt a sharp pain on her side last night so my money would be that she has flipped yet again. Heartbeats and everything  else are good. 

Any doctor news?
My belly is measuring at 45 weeks! Holy belly!

My cervix is more dilated and almost totally effaced. My doctor is on call this weekend so good news if the babies decide to start labor! I have my next growth check for the twins on Wednesday. If Hudson has dipped below the 10 %ile (which he most likely will have) we will schedule the c-section for Thursday or Friday of next week. If by some odd chance these babies keep growing and cooking along, we will schedule the c-section for week 38.  I can't believe they will be here so soon! This pregnancy has absolutely flown by.  I really have had a great pregnancy and I'm so lucky that these babies will most likely be going home with us after our 3 days in the hospital. Thank the Lord. 

Best moment ?
Harper had her first set of hiccups yesterday. 
Hudson gets them quite regularly, but she has yet to have them. 

I also am super excited because I ordered a new Erin Condren planner last night! 

We also decorated the house for Halloween this week. Reagan is so excited for Halloween. I feel a little badly because it's not like it's next weekend or something! Every day he wakes up and walks around - "Me really love Halloween! Is it time for real pumpkins yet?" Oops.

Nick surprised me with roses last night for making it to week 36. Totally sweet. If you follow me on Instagram- there is a picture there.

Worst moment ?
My mood swings have been off the charts this week. First off- pregnancy hormones-duh! Second off- I take Prozac for my anxiety. (Yes, I am a little high strung!) You aren't supposed to take Prozac while breast feeding, so she is switching me to Zoloft. The switching of the drugs is totally making me teary and cranky. Watch out. I spent most of Sunday in bed crying. 

Stretch Marks?
Well, looks like Harper is already being a little diva to her Mama. My left side of the belly has totally spread with stretch marks.  And my right side (aka Hudson's side)? Totally fine. Harper's constant movement are causing my left side to look like I was run over by a truck. Awesome.

1 boy- Hudson Brooks and 1 girl- Harper Grace

Knock on wood. My sleep has gotten much better this week. 
I have been falling asleep with little problems.
Let's hope I didn't just jinx myself.

Food cravings or aversions?
Well, those dessert cravings from last week never materialized. I thought it would spark something in Nick who might surprise me with cheesecake, blizzards, or cookie dough. But no luck. Boys are clueless.

My current craving? Root beer floats. And this I had tonight. Score.

What I miss?
I miss my friends! 

What I'm looking forward to?
I'm looking forward to meeting my little babies.
