How far along? 34 weeks…in 3 weeks I’ll be full-term…wait, what?!
Total weight gain/loss? About 12-14 lbs now, I still fluctuate quite a bit.
Maternity clothes? The most comfortable things I own right own. Except for some shirts that I’m quickly outgrowing! I find I’m reaching for leggings most days.
Stretch marks? Still none from the bean…can’t believe it!
Sleep? I don’t even want to talk about it, but for the sake of this blog, I wake up pretty much on the hour, every hour. Due to the need to pee or the fact that I’m in pain of some sort and have to shift around.
Best moment last week?
James’ family threw me a sweet baby shower and I just loved every minute of it! It’s one of the things that is making everything very real right now!
Movement? She is so active these days, sometimes it jerks my entire body. Her hiccups are so frequent and can be seen on the outside. It’s been crazy!
Food cravings? I’m finding it hard to think of things that sound good to me right now. Cheeseburgers are still an item that comes up often though.
I have a new and lovely pain that’s making life a little more difficult in these last few weeks. While typing the word “pubic” on my blog could cause some unfortunate traffic, the official term is Pubic Symphysis Disorder…and let me tell you, it feels like I’m being torn in half. Labor is sounding REAL fun right now 😉
Labor signs? Nope. Just the pelvic pain and some Braxton Hicks here and there. They really catch me off guard, though.
Belly button in/out? In.
What I miss: Sleeping without pain. Or just sleeping.
What I am looking forward to: Working on little bean’s room and hopefully getting it done before she arrives!
The bean is the size of a butternut squash now. Makes me want fall and butternut squash soup, with a side of cider donuts and hot cider!
Baby girl weighs between 5 and 6
pounds. I’m told she can recognize and react to simple songs…only, I’m a horrible singer, but it makes me feel like I should start!
How far along? 35 weeks
Total weight gain/loss? About 14-16 lbs now, still fluctuates between a few pounds
Maternity clothes? ugh, don’t even want to talk about clothes!!
Stretch marks? Still none from the bean…YAY!
Sleep? Terrible and more terrible. It’s painful to sleep.
Best moment last week? Nothing spectacular, just enjoying getting bean’s room ready and spending quiet days at home with Jimmy Cupcakes.
Movement? She’s nonstop, all the time!!
Food cravings? Donuts. Cheeseburgers. Burritos. All the things bad for you!
Symptoms? Pelvic pain, something fierce! Braxton Hicks, and tired, just dead tired.
Labor signs? Nothing more than Braxton Hicks.
Belly button in/out? In.
What I miss: sleep!
What I am looking forward to: Most days it’s just getting home from work and resting.
The bean is the size of a coconut now. MMMM coconut! Someone get me a Mounds bar!
Baby girl weighs about 6
pounds. Getting chubs in there!
