It's been over 2 weeks now and blogger is still acting up.  Apparently I am never signed in.  I can only access a couple of blogs, and I can absolutely not comment on any one's blogs.  Jeepers Creepers tick me off much!

Anyway, the word of the day today on this blog is irritated!  (I am going to whine about some pregnancy things so please don't keep reading if you are not in a place where you can read this!)

Firstly, I am so frustrated with my gigantic gorilla feet.  My cankles are so swollen they fold over on each other.  From morning to night!  They never go down.  It is driving me nuts.  I absolutely can not wait to have my feet back.  I can't even fit into my flip flops anymore, my feet hang over the sides!  By 7 at night I can barely walk.

Secondly, baby girl really needs to move off of this nerve in my rib cage.  It is brutal.  I honestly haven't found one comfortable position to sit in or lay in.  The worst is in the evening hours.  I guess after a long day the nerve is shot and just aches and aches!

Thirdly, this heartburn!  OMG!  Honestly this should be illegal!

Now onto the thankful...

Firstly, I am so happy that I have made it to 36 weeks!  I never imagined that I would make it here.  Only 31 more days to go until my due date.  Now I will admit that I do hope that Little Miss comes a bit earlier.  Just to ease my uncomfortable body!

Secondly,  another good growth u/s, well sort of...  She was totally uncooperative and would not allow the tech to measure her skull.  She has her head buried under my pubic bone.  But without the head measurement they have her weight estimated at about 5lb 3 oz.  So I'm sure she is bigger than that.  And that makes me happy that she is getting bigger.  I also got a quick good glance at her little face and it looks like she is going to have big pouty lips.  Sweet baby girl!

Thirdly, we have gotten all the baby necessities that I believe we need.  I feel accomplished and ready now!  My SIL is going to bring me her breast pump today and show me how to use it.  Yahhh for being ready!

And last but not least.  I am so thankful to have JD by my side through all of this.  When I think back about everything we've gone through to get here, I don't know a lot of couples who would have made it through this unscathed.  He makes me laugh everyday.  He still thinks I'm cute even though I'm the size of a small whale!  And best of all he tries to rub the fluid out of my feet ever night.  God I love him!  And I hope my other IF partners have have someone as wonderful as I do beside them.

I will do a bump picture on Sunday.  Which is my official 36 week day.  Stay tuned (if you can read this)!

Much Love!

sorry you are uncomfortable, but yay on reaching 36 weeks!!! I can't wait to see the 36 week "bump" :)

PS, perhaps in keeping with your irritation, the word verification on the comment section for me was "iratroo"

Hello KS! I am so sorry...you sound incredibly uncomfortable. I know that likely the only thing getting you through is the fact that you are within a few weeks away from Little Miss! As for JD...I know...what would we do without super supportive DH's! Mine sounds as awesome as yours does. So lucky us girls. And thirdly, blogger...I know. For me, I never "signed in" or unchecked the "keep me signed in" box when leaving a comment on someone else's blog. For me its made the difference and Blogger is functional again for me. OH and can you send me an email? I lost your email address again. LisainSK@saskteldotnet. Mucho gratias! Hang in there!

OH and Heartburn...ask your doc for a prescription of Zantac or what I am on is Pantaloc. Even though you are soo close to the end get one anyway. Might as well be more comfortable. I've been on it since like week 22!

Congrats on 36 weeks! That's awesome. I had issues with blogger too and researched it. Found a solution for me: go to internet options->then security -> enter website, http://www.blogger.com -> press ALLOW

This worked for me. Hope it helps.
