Baby Landon Update: 36 Weeks

Sorry this post comes a day late. Forgot to take a picture yesterday, and got busy yesterday afternoon. I didn't realize how important these posts were to people until I got multiple texts and e-mails about it... sorry girls!
How Far Along: 36 Weeks

Size of Baby: About 6 pounds and more than 18 1/2 inches long

Food Size (According to my e-mail from A crenshaw melon... no clue what this is!

Total Weight Gain: 39 pounds! I've been waiting every morning to see that 40 pound mark... it's bound to happen :(

Maternity Clothes: One of my mom's friends was sweet enough to give me some of her maternity clothes for these last couple of weeks. It's been nice to have a few different shirts to wear. Honestly though probably like 90% of my stuff is still not maternity. Between leggings, long dresses, Target's long tank tops, and my husbands t-shirts they aren't really necessary.

Gender: It's a BOY! Landon Brennan Lutz

Movement: Trying to enjoy it every night. I remember being so annoyed with it at the end of my pregnancy with Ryder and then missing it when it was over. I always had that "it'll happen again some day" feeling though. This could very likely (according to Derrik 100%) be our last pregnancy... trying to soak it up!

Food Cravings: Just eating whatever when i'm hungry in small portions. I can't eat much at one time. I'm so over gaining weight and ready to get back to my old self and work out.

Labor Signs: I wish! The last couple of night i've had really bad cramping at night and a few contractions here and there, but nothing consistent enough to get excited about. Not too much longer hopefully!!!

How’s Ryder Handling It: I think he's as ready as a two year old can be. He asks about Landon a lot. His stuff is everywhere all ready for him, and I think Ryder is ready for him to get here and start using it.

What is the same/different as the last time: Same: At this point just being so uncomfortable!

Different: Feeling cramping and stuff before actually being in labor. With Ryder I never felt any signs of anything until the day I had him.

Symptoms: Does anyone want to hear me complain about my hips anymore. They have gotten so awful that when I roll over and stuff at night they are making an awful popping sound. Hoping this all goes back to normal after I have him.

Best Moment This Week: Getting settled back in at home and officially being 95% ready for Landon to get here. I think I can always be adding stuff to the to-do list. I do need to pack our bags, but that'll take two seconds. Last time I went with sooo much stuff that was not necessary. I packed a ton of clothes for myself and Ryder... we ended up wearing the hospital gowns and cute little hospital shirts on him the whole time.

What I Am Looking Forward To: Our little guy being here! Hoping it happens sooner rather then later, and date night with my hubby tonight :)

Doctors Appointment: Friday... with the awful doctor I saw last week.

Oh my gosh, your bump is SO cute! And yes, your weekly updates are very important to moms out there on "home rest". :) I really think you'll have this little guy early since he's your second!
