I cannot get over that as of today we are 32 days from the big due date. Where has the time gone? In a way I feel like I've been pregnant forever (as much as I talk about it on this blog!) but in all actuality it has flown by. We are getting really excited & also a bit anxious, which is to be expected.
We are making progress in the nursery...slowly but surely. My brother saw it the other night and said 'This is it?!'. So while it may look a little bare to most, this mama does have a vision. It's just a matter of getting it all done. We have the main things in place...we would be fine if this babe makes his/her debut early...it's now just time to get things on the wall and all the toys set up.
With that said, we completed 35 weeks on Friday. Here is my little recap.
How far along? 35 weeks.
Baby Size: More than 5 lbs; between 18 and 20 inches in length. The size of a small roasting chicken! (Yes, baby center really referenced that)
Total weight gain/loss: 29 weeks! The girl scout cookies & valentines candy are really catching up to me J
Maternity clothes? Still a mixture, mainly maternity.
Stretch marks? Nope, Palmer’s every day.
Sleep: Experiencing sleep insomnia the past few nights with lots of rotating back and forth, but still feeling rested for the most part.
Best moment this week: Hearing the healthy heartbeat and having a good doc appointment. Also, we are making more progress on the nursery.
Miss Anything? The ease of getting up & bending over. It is nearly impossible to put on shoes and bend down to pick up things.
Movement: Hiccups almost every day & lots of swishing!
Food cravings: Candy: Peanut M&M’s and twizzlers!! Also, diet sodas. So bad.
Labor Symptoms: Lots of pressure on bladder and lower back pain but nothing of note. I don’t think I’ve felt Braxton Hicks yet but I do feel the occasional stomach tightening.
Aversions/Anything making you queasy or sick: No.
Misc: Nothing of note, just getting really excited!
