How far along are you? 36 weeks. On March 4th I will officially be full term which means if baby comes early, I can have it at the birthing centre as opposed to the hospital.

Weight gain: 35 pounds

Sleep: I'm sleeping pretty well, which I am super grateful for. I want to get as much sleep as I can over the next few weeks, before the baby throws every routine out the window.

Movement: He's getting into the habit of pressing and rolling his head against my bladder, which is pretty uncomfortable, but cute at the same time. Since he's dropped it feels weirder and weirder when he hiccups. Absolutely adorable!

Favourite moments: (1) Alex and I have been spending a lot of our evenings not really doing anything, and enjoying the last few weeks we have alone together. (2) On Monday we packed our hospital bags, and today we got to tour the Birthing Centre. I still can't believe how quickly this trimester has gone by!

Weird pregnancy things: I had a very weird, realistic dream the other night that I had to be induced. During this pregnancy I have been trying to keep myself as opened minded about labour as possible. There are so many things that could happen, and I want to be mentally prepared for all of them. I hadn't really thought about induction until I had the dream. It's not ideal, of course, but I want to go into labour with as open as a mind as possible.

Happy or moody? Happy!

Looking forward to: (1) I finally get to meet my second midwife this week. I absolutely adore Wendy, and can not wait to meet Kadija. Midwifery has made me feel so empowered and confident during the course of my pregnancy. (2) This past week I told Alex that I am really looking forward to being able to wear non maternity clothes soon. I know I will probably wear my maternity bottoms for a while after he is born, but I feel like I have worn the same 3 outfits on repeat for the past few weeks.
