Product Assembly Required

Who knew that putting together a pack & play and bouncer seat, assembling a dresser, and properly installing a car seat involved so many screw drivers, steps, and rules!? All these directions need to be written by someone that actually understands English!

We have pretty much everything set up that we would like for Blake's arrival except for some more diapers, wipes, his changing pad/cover, glider, and his swing. We even got the car seat base installed in my car last week :)

I haven't done a pregnancy update in a while so here it goes ...

*How far along?: 35 Weeks, but he is measuring 39 Weeks as of tomorrow
*How big is baby?: He was estimated to be 6 pounds 3 weeks ago via 3D ultrasound
*Weight Gain: 19 pounds
*Sex: Sweet baby boy!
*Maternity clothes: Maternity jean capris and lots of dresses
*Stretch marks: My lower belly has faint red marks all over it now :(
*Sleep: If I didn't have to get up to go to the bathroom every 2 hours it would be amazing!
*Symptoms: Bloody nose, running to the bathroom every couple hours, pretty intense braxton hicks contractions that are not regular but rather painful at times, throbbing heels, and sleepy
*Movement: He's pretty much always squirming around in there! Has yet to wake me up in the middle of the night though :)
*Food cravings: Nothing in particular, but most of my blood sugars have been nice and low readings (even after some not so low carb choices)- which makes me happy!
*Labor signs: Nothing imminent at this point
*Belly button in or out: Still an innie, but part of it is protruding
*What I miss: Sleeping on my tummy!
*What I'm looking forward to: Seeing his sweet face in less than a month! Also, the doctor is going to do an ultrasound in 2-3 weeks to determine if we will be inducing labor or proceeding with a c-section. If he is measuring over 9.5 pounds then my doctor wants to go ahead and schedule a c-section between August 22-30 (depending on the measurements). Can't believe this is so close now! I've started packing my hospital bag, but it only has my toiletries and 2 articles of clothing for me so far ... I need to get on it!

Hope you had a great weekend :) I'm going to help my husband celebrate the rest of his birthday! Love you all!
