36 weeks!

36 weeks down! 4 to go!

 I'm running out of clothes to wear. Definitely in some elastic shorts and a neon tank top.
Baby Boy #2 is now the size of a honeydew melon!
I'm finally down to my weekly appointments to see the OB. However, they are still fairly short. We discussed what happens if I go into labour and the fact that second babies come quickly. I wanted to make sure I get my epidural so I told her and she's going to put it on my paperwork for the hospital.
Sleeping has been brutal. I can't get comfortable, I have really weird dreams, I'm overheating and the heartburn has started. On Sunday night, I actually had a decent sleep from about midnight until 6:45. Still some weird dreams (as in I was an assistant for Dr. Phil), but I didn't have to roll over or get up to go to the bathroom.
I'm getting lots of cramping, lots of BH and feel like a beached whale most evenings. My feet and hands are swelling each night which is great fun!
Most maternity clothes are just really uncomfortable right now and I can't wait to fit back into my regular stuff! Track pants, yoga pants and sweatshirts are definitely in my future (especially with Fall around the corner).

The scary thing is, I have another mommy friend is who 3 days (not weeks) ahead of me and had her sweet little girl today! How crazy is that?! He can come anyime!

I'm slowly getting through my checklist. Here's what's left:
