Total weight gain? 22 pounds as of my appointment today! I'm currently 36 weeks, 6 days. I cannot believe how little I've gained this time around, because I'm eating as much as I did when I was breastfeeding Ramsey- which is a LOT.

Maternity clothes? Only for bumpies.

Stretch marks? NOPEEE!

Sleep? Waking up to pee once or twice each night. I've had a few nights where I've struggled to fall back asleep after returning from the bathroom. Otherwise no complaints.

Best moment? Hearing that I'm 3 cm dilated at my appointment this morning! I was so nervous about being induced, but hearing that I've progressed has been really reassuring. The doctor said I was a perfect candidate for an induction- and she stripped my membranes, so it's possible I'll progress further before my induction in the morning. Fingers crossed! I've definitely started having stronger contractions since then.
Miss anything? Nope!

Movement? Not as much as before, but she is definitely active several times throughout the day, so I haven't been worried.

Food cravings? Watermelon, chocolate, and icecream cones.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Just some indigestion after certain meals- but Tums have worked wonders.

Happy or moody most of the time? I have been so moody and irrational this week. I think it's because everything is about to change and I'm super emotional about it all.

Looking forward to? Tomorrow morning! We will call at 7 am to make sure a room is  available, and if so we will be arriving at 8 am to begin the induction. I cannot wait to meet our baby girl- and I cannot believe that it's already here!!
