35 weeks! My honeydew! :)

How far along? 
35 weeks! 5 to go!



Size of baby: Honeydew (woah that seems large)


Weight Gain: ? 

Maternity Clothes

lets just assume yes from here on out ha! I dont think there is any going back now haha I tried on my pre-preg jeans and well lets just say they dont quite fit ha! 

Sleep: pretty good... still just waking up about every 3 hours which is only once a night

Best Moment of this week: 
labor day weekend at the beach with my hubby! 
 
Symptoms: 
back pain hasnt been as bad... just bending over difficulty, getting super tired going up stairs, walking, etc..., feeling more pressure in my pelvis.


Braxton Hicks:
I dont think so ... not yet.

Movement:
more and more! Seems like she is always on the go and I LOVE it... also, I think this was the first week I have really felt her have the hickups :) felt like a heartbeat in my tummy but too slow to be mine or hers :) 
Also, I love pushing on her feet and her moving them around :) !!!

Food cravings:  
Can't think of anything besides icecream and milkshakes haha Lately I am loving the Chick-fil-A's peach milkshake with chocolate syrup... the guy working there asked if I liked it (looking at my like I was crazy) but its delish I tell you haha!

Aversions:  
I'm just sick of eating Mexican food-- probably bc my family likes to go to Montereys about 2 or more times a week. ugh.

What I miss: 

being able to get up and down with ease, putting clothes on like a normal person, shaving my legs is super hard, and getting out of bed is such a chore!

Gender: 

 LOVE LOVE LOVE my little Raleigh Grace sooo much :) can't wait to hold her and kiss her!!

What I'm looking forward to: 
getting the nursery painted so we can put the furniture in there... washing some of her clothes, hopefully seeing my mom sometime soon and my 36 week apt next week :)  
Bump: 
35 weeks :)

From Babycenter:
How your baby's growing:
Your baby doesn't have much room to maneuver now that he's over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds (pick up a honeydew melon). Because it's so snug in your womb, he isn't likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number of times he kicks should remain about the same. His kidneys are fully developed now, and his liver can process some waste products. Most of his basic physical development is now complete — he'll spend the next few weeks putting on weight.
 How your life's changing: 
Your uterus — which was entirely tucked away inside your pelvis when you conceived — now reaches up under your rib cage. If you could peek inside your womb, you'd see that there's more baby than amniotic fluid in there now. Your ballooning uterus is crowding your other internal organs, too, which is why you probably have to urinate more often and may be dealing with heartburn and other gastrointestinal distress. If you're not grappling with these annoyances, you're one of the lucky few.
From here on out, you'll start seeing your practitioner every week. Sometime between now and 37 weeks, she'll do a vaginal and rectal culture to check for bacteria called Group B streptococci (GBS). (Don't worry — the swab is the size of a regular cotton swab, and it won't hurt at all.) GBS is usually harmless in adults, but if you have it and pass it on to your baby during birth, it can cause serious complications, such as pneumonia, meningitis, or a blood infection. Because 10 to 30 percent of pregnant women have the bacteria and don't know it, it's vital to be screened. (The bacteria come and go on their own — that's why you weren't screened earlier in pregnancy.) If you're a GBS carrier, you'll get IV antibiotics during labor, which will greatly reduce your baby's risk of infection.
This is also a good time to create a birth plan. Using our form will help you focus on specifics — like who'll be present, what pain management techniques you want to try, and where you want your baby to stay after you deliver. It will give you a starting point to discuss your preferences with your medical team. Childbirth is unpredictable, and chances are you won't follow your plan to the letter, but thinking about your choices ahead of time — and sharing your preferences with your caregiver — should take some of the anxiety out of the process.

  1. Oh my gosh, why is putting on underwear/pants/shoes/socks suddenly so difficult?! I feel like I woke up one day and couldn't bend over! I swear I could do it the day before! HA! :-) And we had a "cool" front and I needed to pull out some jeans...let's just say that 8 months pregnant and pre-pregnancy jeans DON'T mix :-( I thought I could pull some off with a belly band...NOT ha! I can't wait to paint our nursery too! We have everything for her room but are waiting for paint! I can't wait to see pictures of yours!!!! :-) Everything is getting SO CLOSE!!!!
