(Almost) 36 weeks

Today I had another baby checkup. I'm almost 36 weeks -- full term! Everything is still going great, and the arrival of all of these sweet babies is really getting me excited to hold our little man.

My swelling continues to worsen. I gained 5 pounds in two weeks, most of which is probably fluids. My legs and feet are so swollen that I had to buy a new pair of shoes today, and I had to go up TWO SIZES to get my fat feet to fit.

The carpal tunnel in my right hand is getting worse, too. I'm having difficulty buttoning the kid's clothes, putting hair binders in their hair, and holding heavy things without feeling like I may drop it due to poor grip.

Sadly, I also had to take off my wedding ring for the first time in four pregnancies. :(

BUT...my baby is healthy. He is head down and ready to go, just fattening up a little more before we get to meet him.

Here is a video I took of my belly the other night. I started recording after about 20 minutes of nonstop movement (BIG movements), and it continued for about an hour total. It was crazy.
