How far along? 35 weeks and only 35 days left!!! aka 35/35....holy moly...
How big is baby? According to thebump.com -- baby girl is the size of a coconut, between 4.2-5.8 lbs. and 17.2-18.7 inches long. (And yes, according to thebump, it's the same measurements as last week...mmm...someone needs to double check their work.)
Weight gain? 189 lbs baby....lol, yes I'm celebrating that. That means that I gained ZERO pounds this week....and all I have to say is IT'S ABOUT FREAKING TIME! After gaining a boat load the last two weeks, my weigh in this morning was a breath of fresh air. Now don't get me wrong, I know I'm going to gain more, but I'm rejoicing and enjoying this one little thing that makes me feel better as my skin is rebelling, my hair is getting greasier, and my legs looks like stumps from hip to thigh. ;) Oh and don't freak out on me...trust me...I've been eating...a lot. I'm just really trying to limit my nightly snacks to only a few things instead of everything.
Maternity clothes? Yes and well, I'm getting tired of a few pieces. I also noticed that my maternity pants are tight after washing them (and I didn't even put them in the dryer)! Ugh, awesome....thank you widening hips.
Stretchmarks? Nothing new...yet.
Sleep? Eh, it's pregnant sleep. Hard to fall asleep, up to pee multiple times, and then very restless, hot (night sweats, anyone?), and difficult to get comfortable.
Best moment this week? Learning that Thaddeus has started napping at daycare!!! SO excited about this as he hasn't napped since before he was one (at least at daycare) and it just kills me (and him). (Oh and to update this before I post...I just found out that one of you sweet blog readers nominated my family and I for a photo session and we won....I am SO GRATEFUL....thank you for that. I can't wait to get pics of this little one with the family! A blessing right now, I tell ya...a real blessing.)
Movement? Lots and a lot of it is uncomfortable. I'm thinking it's because she's still transverse (and I'm betting anterior at that)...and sometimes I think she's laying oblique. I guess we'll see next Friday at my next appt. p.s. She still HATES when I try to lay on my right side at night...literally throws an internal tantrum until I roll over. She is going to be feisty I tell ya.
Food cravings? Bunny Tracks ice cream....and candy (purple bags of Skittles).
Water intake? Still more than the 32 oz. a day, but not quite 64 every day.
Gender? Little miss.
Labor signs? Just what I think are some random BH, but really, sometimes it's hard to tell if it's her or an actual Braxton Hicks contraction.
Belly button in or out? The belly button is officially out (sometimes it's a lot more out than others, but in general, it's out).
What I miss? Again, not swelling...and thinner face....oh and sleep, but I don't think I'll be seeing that one anytime soon.
What I am looking forward to? Baby shower tomorrow!!! AND I have Monday off...AMEN.
Weekly Wisdom? What's that quote? "If you want to see God laugh, tell him your plans." Yeah...God has a plan for my life, our life, and I've got to have some major faith right now....hoping for good things...Lord help us.
