36 week update!

What Fruit are you? "large cantaloupe" 19-22 inches 6lbs
Due date:  November 15th
How far along: 36w5d
Next appointment:  Had one yesterday, and got some news. our tricky little guy who has been head down the ENTIRE pregnancy decided to flip and is now breech! Its not very common for them to flip this late in the game because there is not much room in there for them to maneuver. we are praying he flips back... if not we have a C-section scheduled for 11/11
Gender:  BOY!  :)
Total weight gain/loss: I don't even want to discuss this. ;)
Stretch marks: No new ones
Swelling: haven't really noticed any, maybe a little at the end of the day after walking a lot. but not enough to complain.
Maternity clothes: yes-maternity pants and I wear all my same shirts basically.
Belly button: innie
Sleep: a little bit better these last couple days! (its the little victories)
Food cravings: sugar sugar sugar!!!! I cant help myself... then I feel guilty...until I am offered more sugary goodness!
Symptoms: Its the last month... I think a better question is what symptoms do I not have? ;)
What I miss:  being able to stand up normally and not like a grandma. and having a bladder larger then a walnut.
What I'm loving: Its the final count down! if we have the C-section that puts me at 19 days!!
What I'm looking forward to: meeting our little guy :)

I don't know if any of you know the struggle of baby boy clothing. 80% of it is weird and has animals all over it or phrases like "daddy's little tiger"... not a fan. anyways I needed some little beanies for Nixon because he will be born in winter but all the ones I could find were so horrible, they had puppies in firetrucks or basketballs embroidered all over them.
you can go to baby gap and find the most adorable clothes and beanies, and then you look at the price tag and they cost the same as your adult size clothes :(
you decide that you could probably make some of those trendy little beanies because how hard could they be... Right?
I made Nixon a little top knot beanie
I followed this picture tutorial-
 It took me about 10 minutes to sew, I made sure to use the original T-shirt hem for the bottom to have a pretty finished edge :)
