36 weeks and a snow day

It's snowing once again in our little corner of the world. We were snowed/iced in over Christmas for several days, and as much as I enjoyed that (I was super-productive!), I'm not loving it this time so much. Although, I am enjoying the day off work!

I am now 36 weeks pregnant and feeling HUGE! I'm starting to get to the point that it's hard to breathe and roll over and sleep and get up and down and pretty much do a lot of things. BUT, this also means we are closer to meeting our baby girl, and we are SO excited about that!
We took a tour of the hospital the other night during our last birthing class and it made everything feel so close and real. There were twin babies in the nursery that had just been born, and they were just tiny and adorable. It made me want to hold my baby so badly! Dr. N says we probably have a while still because she hasn't dropped yet. That means that I haven't started dialating or effacing yet either. We could see that she has lots of hair on the ultrasound, and it looked curly! I saw a newborn pic of me the other day, and I had to wonder if that's what she'll look like.
Here is a progression of the belly pics over the last 3 months. The first one was taken at 25 weeks, and the last one at 36 weeks.Do you think I've grown??? *grin*
