36 Weeks

Weeks total: 36
What's new: I saw a new doctor this week that assured me that the 30 lbs I have gained are completely normal (compared to my previous doctor) and I was tested for Group B Strep. I had it with my first pregnancy so I'm praying I don't have to deal with the stress of GBS this time. We get the results at my 38 week appointment.
Food cravings: Pasta! 
Stretch Marks: Thankfully none! I am terrified of those purple lines I see others with!!
What I miss: SLEEP! I've tried the couch and the bed and getting an entire nights sleep has never been so difficult! I wont ever take sleeping for granted again.
Baby movement: A ton, he seems to want out!
Sickness: None
Sleep: hahahahahaha!
Rings: On
Mood: Anxious!
Gender: Little man
