36 Weeks Pregnancy Bump Date - Cankles and Doctor Checks my Cervix!

Hi Bellas,

Can you believe that I'm 9 months pregnant!  Seriously, we are in the home stretch.  It was a big week...I'm nesting and shopping like crazy, preparing my home for baby girl.  I also had a big doctor's appointment this week where my doctor checks to see how dilated I am!  Check it out!

Check out the video!

  • Baby girl is the size of a large cantaloupe - 6 lbs and between 19-22 inches
  • Post Partum Supplies - I took a trip to Wal-Mart and began loading up on post part supplies - pads, adult diapers, oh my!
  • Road Trip - The fam took a 3 hour road trip back and forth in one day to help our niece move into college.  Here's a tip, pack a pillow for back support if you're planning any long car rides.  
  • Labor Playlist - My hospital encourages you to bring a speaker and your own music to help get you in the right mood for labor.  Mine is filled with amazing power girls - Beyonce, J-Lo, and Mary J Blige.
  • Putting Together Baby Gear - My husband's cousin helped us put together the big items this week - playpen, swing, rocker, high chair, we're set!
  • 36 Weeks Dr Appointment - My doctor checked my cervix for the first time, ouch!  Talk about tons of pressure and poking.  My cervix is still closed and I'm 50% effaced.  She also did a swab for Group B Strep and I got blood work done for HIV - all routine stuff.
  • Target Registry Discount - FYI if your target doesn't have their welcome basket in stock, you can get a $25 registry credit, score!
  • Cankles - My feet and ankles are definitely getting swollen.  I couldn't fit into some shoes and I know I had to get more rest and put my feet up.
