35 Down, 35 To Go

  • How far along? 35 Weeks!
  • Total weight gain: 22 pounds. I was really hoping to only gain 25, but at least it looks like I'll be under 30, so that makes me happy.
  • Maternity clothes? Wishing that I had some, but I feel like it's too late in the game to buy any.
  • Stretch marks? So far so good!
  • Sleep: I ache. I can sleep through the night except to wake up to roll, which most time I can fall right back asleep, or the occasional potty break, but I wake up hurting. I'm find during the day, but when I wake up my back aches. Weird? Yes.
  • Best moment this week? Today my doctor told me she wishes she could clone me. It's nice to know that a doctor, who sees tons of preggo women, thinks that I'm a good example.
  • Movement? All.the.time. And all over. I swear he/she was trying to burst out of my side yesterday. And my ribcage is permanently sore. I wonder how it feels to be a normal person who doesn't share her ribcage with someone who thinks it's a jungle gym.
  • Food cravings? Nothing that I can think of. Even my bacon phase seems to have past. I've wanted ice cream for the past few weeks, but that's nothing to odd for me.
  • Labor signs? The past day or so I think I've been having Braxton Hicks. My tummy has been getting tight. I've definitely been uncomfortable and I'm starting to get to the point where I'm ready for the real deal and to hold this child in my arms.
  • Belly button: Same. It's still hanging on for dear life.
  • What I miss? My body being sore because I worked out too hard, not because all I did was wake up in the morning.
  • What I'm looking forward to: My shower! It's on Saturday and I'm super excited to see friends and family. And of course to be center of attention for a few hours. Might as well soak it in now since in a few weeks I'll be out shadowed by the baby. :-)

I had no idea I looked so tired! I need to start taking pictures early in the day...and maybe make sure my hair and make up are done :-)

30 lbs is great! Sounds like you will have a perfectly healthy baby :-) By the way - I am interested in who your realtor was. We have one right now, but we haven't signed her contract yet and we're not sure about her. Hopefully I will be able to stop and say Hi one these Sundays and maybe you could give me their contact info!
