36 Weeks Pregnant

How far along: 36 weeks
Total weight: 95 kilos
Stretch marks: I do have stretch marks, I have been applying moisturizer during the whole of my pregnancy, but at the beginning, the moisturizer made my skin flare up and get all blotchy, I wasn't aware until investigating the packaging that it contained Almond oil. I have a severe nut allergy, which is why I reacted so badly to the moisturizer! However, they may fade after I've had Baby E.  
Best moments this week: If I'm honest, I haven't had a very good week, I've been feeling more depressed and down than normal. I also had a terrible time at the hospital, which didn't help. You can read that post here.

Miss anything: The same as last week, I really miss feeling well. I have to admit I feel really jealous when I read all of these other mummy to be's post about there pregnancy, and how much they're enjoying it. Sadly, I really doubt there will be another pregnancy on the cards for us. We really struggled to fall pregnant with Baby E, and I don't think I could go through all the heartache I've been through this time around again. I'd love another child, but I think we will foster rather then me having another. I'm so thankful that we do have Baby E, and we've got this far, but I've hated pregnancy, and saying that makes me feel so guilty. I wish I could enjoy it and have a positive experience with others.
Movement: Yesterday we had a little scare because she hadn't moved or kicked for over 24 hours, I was in a state of panic, I tried everything that usually makes her get a wriggle on, Slammed doors, drank fizzy drinks with lots of ice, Ice cold water. Nothing worked! So off we went to the hospital, and as soon as they hooked us up to the monitor, she started kicking. Typical hey
Gender: Girl
Labour signs: I've been having lots of contractions, but they've not progressed to anything as of yet. 
Symptoms: sickness, tiredness, and I are very short tempered. 
How do I feel: I feel like a demon or something, I'm being so mean to the people care about for no apparent reason, I'm not even aware I'm doing it until I've already said it. My other half just laughs it off because he knows I don't mean what I say, and he generally finds it amusing when I do snap - but that doesn't help because when someones laughing at you, its just more fuel to the fire!
Belly button in or out: in
Wedding ring on or off: off
Cravings: chicken and sweetcorn sandwiches! Yes still! This honestly must be like the 3rd maybe 4th week in a row!

How your baby grows
Week 36: Your baby's movements will be stronger and more defined, and you may see an outline of an elbow or a knee under the skin of your abdomen.
