Time is flying!

                             How Far Along: 36 weeks & 4 days
                Size of baby: 18 inches long & over 5 pounds
Weight gain so far: 22 pounds
Maternity Clothes: There are cold fall days that make me pull out the sweaters & comfy closed in shoes...but every now & then it gets warm again & I can still wear my flip flops & short sleeve shirts! I am trying to get as much wear out of my t-shirts as possible =)
Gender: A BOY!!! Greyson Matthew Crawford
Movement: So far he is keeping to his schedule...moving a lot in the morning, mid afternoon & night. He has moved his feet from my ribs to my upper side which has helped me breath SO much better!
Sleep: Some nights are better than others. I am at the point now where it takes a while to get comfortable & have had to stack pillows in the bottom of the bed so I can elevate my feet, while trying to sleep on my left side...yeah, it doesn't work or feel great!
 Symptoms: My feet have really been swelling more lately. It doesn't take much & most nights Matt gets out the foot lotion & massages the fluid around so they are not so tight. I still have a little heartburn & my back has started aching a lot more...but still just the normal things.
What I miss: Energy! While I am still doing lots of things & keeping really busy, I go at a much slower pace since my waddle walk has begun to take over! Bending over is a process & Matt has had to help me put socks & shoes on!
Cravings: Comfort food...thank goodness my mother in law sends lots of food home with us!
Best Moment this week: Getting my nursery a lot more organized & putting out all of our Christmas decorations!!  
 What I am looking forward to: My next baby shower on the 19th hosted by my mother in law! It will be a "cowboy" theme & the invitations are adorable. We are supposed to get the recliner for the nursery in this week too!
