    I just came back from my doctor’s appointment and he said that the baby is now in the head down position…yay! Now let’s hope he stays head-down until his arrival. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My only complaint is that the baby’s feet and/or knees (the doctor thinks it’s his knees) are pushing up under my ribs on the right side. I have a hard time sitting for any length of time because it really hurts. Last night Darling Husband and I went to the movies to see “Catching Fire” and I could barely sit there for the entire movie because I was so uncomfortable. It hurts a lot when I’m driving too so I’m glad I don’t have to drive too far!

    @As_You_Wish:  Yay for head down! Do you find the bladder pressure worse now? 

    Quinn is head down, her back and butt are more on the left side (her butt sticks out) and I feel lopsided lol

    @IheartNYC:  Awww…I hope so too! There’s still time left for her to turn around though thank goodness. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Lyndzo:  I do find the bladder pressure worse and I know what you mean about feeling lopsided! I told my husband last night that I feel like an oopee ball. I’m not sure if you remember oopee balls but they were beach balls from KFC and you filled one side up with water and when you throw them they never went in the direction you threw them because the weight was unbalanced.

    @As_You_Wish:  That is exactly how I feel!  Like an oopee ball!

    My baby bump is not round like a beautiful beachball either… it’s more angular…

     

    @Lyndzo and @SaraP2012:  I love the shower pics and the maternity pics.  Gorgeous!

     

    36 weeks ultrasound on Monday.  Cross your fingers everybody!!

    @bumblingbumblebee:  Fingers crossed for you!

    I went shopping tonight and bought a bunch of supplies for when I go to the hospital including super-heavy maxi pads, tucks pads and big black granny panties (so attractive! lol). I also bought myself some button down pjs and a button down nightgown.

    Between my hospital tour last week and then shopping for supplies today, everything is starting to feel SO REAL now! Have you guys started packing for the hospital yet? Now that I have most of the stuff I need to take to the hospital with me, I will probably start packing my bags soon. I think the only thing I have left to get is a going home outfit for the baby.

    Ahhh…I’m so excited and nervous at the same time! ๐Ÿ™‚

    @As_You_Wish:  I remember those!

    After I complained of being lopsided Quinn switched sides. I had an U/S on Thursday and she’s now on the other side. Now there’s feet sticking out where her butt was LOL

    I got some amazing pictures at the U/S though, it’s made me so excited. 5 more weeks!

    @Lyndzo:  I think we are two of a kind, i’m not leaking, my boobs have not increased at all, no weight gain whatsoever (lost some wight the first few weeks), no BH, and i still don’t have a really showy bumb, lots of people think i’m like 6 months pregnant (LOL) Weird!

    @ScottishMrs:  That’s a neat video on how to get the baby into position! Hopefully you get a chance to see Catching Fire soon…I really enjoyed it!

    I bought my black granny panties at Walmart. They are “Fruit of the Loom” brand and are sold in a package of six for $9.99. I just signed up for that greenbabybargains site too. Looks pretty cool! ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Lyndzo:  Aww, look at that ultrasound! So awesome! I reeeally want another U/S so I can see my baby but it doesn’t look like I’ll be getting one. Darling Husband works in the Emergency Dept. at the hospital so I tried to convince him to let me come in for an ultrasound but it didn’t work lol.

    @As_You_Wish:  Your post made me laugh about a conversation I had with a friend recently. We were talking about washing clothes after purchase before wearing them. I said I wash my underwear but sometimes I dont if they are purchased in a package. She said who buys panties in a package?! haha I said I buy my gp’s in a package!! She thought I was crazy until she realized pregnant ladies may not all buy the pretty lacey panties at Victoria’s Secret!

    @SaraP2012:  I never thought I’d see the day that I bought packaged underwear, let alone packaged granny panties bahaha. And since I’m already on the subject of embarrassing purchases from Walmart, I also picked up some of their cheapy “George” brand sweat pants for $10 (so comfy!). I’ve been wearing those around the house since my maternity jeans are starting to feel really uncomfortable and I don’t want to invest more money in maternity clothes at this point. I only have a couple pairs of maternity pants that fit well so I only wear those when I go out somewhere and I wear my sweat pants or yoga pants around the house. So classy! lol (but oh so comfortable)

    @ScottishMrs:  That was a good deal for the diaper sprayer! I haven’t decided if we’re going to use one of those yet but they seem like a good idea. Which movie did you end up seeing? My husband wants to go see “Thor” but we also want to see “12 Years a Slave”. We generally don’t go to the movies often but we’re taking advantage of it now because we know it will be a luxury once the baby arrives.
