36 Weeks Pregnant

How far along?  36 weeks 2 days
Size of baby: as big as a head of romaine lettuce. 6 ish lbs nearly 19 inches from head to toe
What is the baby up to this week?: gaining about an ounce per day!
Total weight gain/loss? 146lb (137 before pregnancy)
Maternity clothes? definitely I have been wearing maxi dresses like crazy too
Stretch marks? none as of now hold off another 4 weeks!!!
Sleep? sleeping is going downhill. I can't seem to sleep more than a couple hours at a time. I wake up nauseated and super warm and basically feeling like I can't breathe.
Best moment last week? doing our own maternity shoot at the beach. Matt and I going out for his father's day lunch
Movement? she is still moving like crazy, I've read that they tend to slow down with movement patterns in the last few weeks but Lucy is still jabbing me and scooting around in there.
Food cravings? watermelon! 
Gender? girl!
Labor signs? don't think it qualifies as "labor" signs but I am definitely getting the Braxton Hicks contractions and they can be painful at times and can wake me up at night. 
Belly button in/out? outie baby
What I miss:  bending over, getting in and out of the car easy, super hot baths, mostly the ease of movements!
What I am looking forward to: Doctor's appointment tomorrow, last ultrasound next week
Milestones: Matt's first "father-to-be day"
Other Symptoms: my doctor called me and told me my blood platelets are low, which is what is responsible for being able to clot your blood during delivery. Tomorrow they should let me know if they want me to see a hematologist or not. Fingers crossed that it is nothing serious but my platelets have been running low the whole pregnancy, I hope it's not a cause for serious concern!
