36 week update

It's been weird not having regular access to a computer. When I was working I was at a computer 8 hours a day. Now, even though we have a computer in the house, I am obviously using it a lot less. I thought I'd jump on though & update before I completely fell out of the habit. Staying home is going well so far. I'm trying to find my groove; making sure enough gets done but giving myself enough rest before the baby gets here.

How far along are you? 36 weeks + 2 days. That's only 3 weeks & 5 days 'till my due date.

Current cravings? I'm still eating a lot of nectarines
Belly button in or out? It's usually sticking out.
Gender? Boy!

Any milestones? I'm down to appointments every week. I'm in that last month.Crazy how fast things go. They'll be testing me for Group B Strep bacteria at my appointment this week. It's a normal bacteria that is harmless to mom but can be harful to baby. If I test positive I'll have to have a course of antibiotics while in labor. I didn't have it with Connor, we'll see what happens this time.

Other symptoms? Constant pelvic pain. I'm getting heartburn too when I lay down at night.
Anything different between this pregnancy & last? I do not remember the pelvic pain being this bad last time.
What I miss? Being able to reach my legs to shave them in the shower.
What I’m looking forward to? Baby being here
Working on any projects? Finishing up on the rocking chair. We're refinishing it from it's original oak finish & painting it a light blue color. One more coat of paint & some clear coat & we'll be done.
I need a few more baby/mom care essentials & to finish setting up the nursery but I think that can all be done before baby is here (as long as he doesn't show up super early).

I want to get some meals made & frozen before baby comes but we'll see if that happens or not.
