Fantastical Friday: 36 weeks

How far along are you? 36 weeks
How are you feeling? Pregnant LOL. My SIL told me that's what her friend would say when people asked. I'm feeling pretty good. I've had a bout of hormonal mood swings, but nothing too extreme. I've been having contractions on and off all week. Nothing regular, nothing super painful. Mason is pushing down A TON. It feels like he's trying to push his way out.
How big is baby? almost 6 lbs and 18 1/2 inches (possibly plus some) long.
How are you sleeping? Really well as of late. Most nights I don't wake up to pee anymore, so that is awesome!
Food cravings/aversions? I figured out sweets craving = fruit craving. I've been eating strawberries like crazy the last week or two. I also bought some instant oatmeal that is apple and cranberry and it is SO good.
Any milestones/other thoughts? I'm "early term" or whatever term they are throwing around now. I swear in the last 7 years, they have made up more junk than I can grasp. Now there's prodromal labor and Braxton Hicks - back in my day (har har), it was just Braxton Hicks. Doctors are inducing if you're group b strep positive - why? Doctors are inducing for literally everything. Moms to be are also trying to evict babies out as early as possible. I've read all these girls at 38 weeks bouncing on birthing balls and taking castor oil. Chill out, yo! You know what I'm trying to do to prepare for baby? SLEEP! I know life with a newborn is full of everything but sleep. :)

Nick, myself, and the kids are placing bets on when he'll be born and how much he'll weigh and how long he'll be. I say 2/17 at 9am - 7lb 10oz and 21" long. Nick says 2/18 at 1:30pm - 7lb 14oz and 22.5" long. Matt says 2/25 in the afternoon - 7lb 13oz and 23.5" long. Cami says 2/27 in the afternoon - 6lb 11oz and 19" long. Clearly, Cami is thinking of Mom! haha
