36 Weeks

First off here are two of my most recent LO's. The first one is using a template made by Rhonna Farrer found at The second is using a kit made by Amy Teets called Sun Porch and I got it at
So, 36 weeks this pregnancy EVER going to end? I have to say I am pretty grumpy these days. I am sore and extremly uncomfortable. I can not exagerate how uncomfortable I am. I am just not one of those women who enjoy being pregnant in the last trimester. How anyone can enjoy being this big is beyond me. I am dying to go for a walk or a ride on my stationary bike, the three of us went to the local market on Sunday and I was actually having a comfortable day and I could have walked around there all day. It just felt so good to be out and mobile. I didn;t even mind the braxton hicks that I copped every 5 steps I took LOL.
The baby's head engaged last week which has contributed to the uncomfortable and extremly heavy feeling. I am experiencing all the lovely pre-labour symptems and just have my fingers crossed this baby comes the same time it's sister did and doesn't make me wait till I am 40 weeks or over. At this stage with Poppy she was born in 2 weeks and 2 days.
Not much else happening here. Been crocheting like crazy and finally got the baby blanket finished but wont post a pic till baby is born (it is gender specific). I am obsessed with making beanies and I think I should have one for every possible head size this baby could come out with.
Poppy is doing great, she wears me out though but is very helpful when I need things picked up. She is becomming very good with her colours and can count to 11. She is also very good at comforting me when I am having a "moment" and says to me when I am crying "you ok Mum mum?" followed by "it's alright" as she pats me on the back or gives me a cuddle. I hate not being able to run around with her or rough around on the floor with her. First thing I am gonna do when this belly is gone is roll around on the floor with her and play chasey with her....then I will sit with her at her table and play playdough with her......I don't fit at her table any more.
I am sure hubby is just as over this pregnany as I am. I am sure he is sick of my moods and me not being able to do much around the house due to my pelvis. He is still a champ though and a decent cuddle with him can make everything seem soooooo much better. We just wanna meet our baby now, not long to go but it sure is going SLOOOOOOOOOOW!!!
Anyway that is it for now. Baby has hicups and it is very irritating. Time for a drink of water me thinks.
