36 week update

I can not believe I am 9 months pregnant!! It is so crazy sometimes I feel like I am in a dream. This is everything I have ever wanted and it has been absolutely amazing. Of course we had a few bumps in the road but otherwise I have been blessed with a great pregnancy with no major problems. Thank you Lord! We are getting so excited for Cooper's birth. Knowing that he could literally come at any time is kind of scary but kind of amazing at the same time. I am such a planner that not knowing when it will happen freaks me out but I am letting that go and just enjoying the last few weeks of being pregnant. We spent last weekend getting everything ready for his arrival. We can now officially say he can come at any point and we are prepared!! eekk!!! Come on Cooper!!! We are totally fine with you coming a few weeks early!! 

How far along? 36 weeks
Size of baby gautreaux? Baby Gautreaux is the size of a coconut  
Total weight gain/loss: +24 (yes I gained 8 pounds in a month! I almost fell off the scale when she weighed me but the doctor says that it is okay since I was below what I should be before this month)
Maternity clothes? Still going back and forth but pretty much living in dresses and maxi skirts.
Stretch marks? ... 
Sleep: pretty much up every single day from 3:30-6:15 then back to sleep until 9ish. I hate it so much because I am normally an early bird but this 3 hours waking period in the middle of the night has me sleeping later. 
Best moment this week: finding out we are 1 cm dilated & little man is head down and low at our appointment!  He is getting ready to make his grand entrance and mommy and daddy can't wait!!
Have you told family and friends: Yes! 
Miss Anything? Still wanting ham sandwiches and a strawberry margarita!! 
Movement: ohh yess!! Karate Kid in training over here!
Food cravings: sweets!!!
Anything making you queasy or sick: No
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks, heart burn, lots of back pain, growing belly, emotional wreck, pretty much all the normal pregnancy symptoms. 
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy but sometimes I have these crazy spells when I am an emotional wreck! 
Have you started to show yet: large and in charge!
Gender: BOY!!!!! 
Labor Signs: dilated 1 cm and lots and lots of Braxton Hicks.
Belly Button in or out? Still in!! I can't believe it has lasted this long but it is still hanging in there!!
Wedding rings on or off? On but if I go outside for a long time it has to come off! Dang heat!!
Looking forward to: Officially being full term next week and little man making his grand entrance.
