35 Weeks

September 13, 2012

Pregnancy Stats:
How Far Along: 35 weeks

Size of baby: 18 inches long and probaby weights about 5 1/4 pounds the size of a honeydew.
Total Weight Gain: 14 pounds so far...I go back to the doctor tomorrow for yet another weigh in.
Gender: It's a GIRL!!!
Movement: She moves a lot, but I have noticed her slowing down just a tad bit, probably because she is slowly running out of room in there.  She still likes to camp out on my right side under my liver and rib cage and just hang out.  She must be territorial like her mommy.
Sleep: I give up with sleeping well. I always get up a couple of times, to go to the bathroom or roll over to my other side, which takes a lot of effort, believe it or not.  I have a feeling my days of sleeping are loooooong gone, and that is fine with me.
What I miss: A good nights sleep, being able to move without pain, running/exercising.  I read that my uterus is up to one thousand times larger than before I got pregnant...which makes me feel huge and slow...yep that pretty much sums it up!
Cravings: Cold things and chocolate, nothing new.
Symptoms:  Back and neck pain, and crazy heart burn. Nothing I can't deal with. I have nothing major to complain about. Praise God for that!
Maternity Clothes: Yep or shirts a size too big for me when I am not growing a watermelon, but mostly I just wear my husbands t-shirts and a pair of running shorts. And Thank God for being able to wear scrubs to work!
Best Moment this week: My mom and my sister coming down to help me with baby things and washing the baby's clothes.  Sooo very surreal.  And I would be lying if I didn't tell you that it brought tears to my eyes once I realized I was actually washing MY baby's clothes.  I feel so so blessed and grateful for this amazing baby girl that we are just a few weeks away from meeting!  And I thank God for her every single day.
