Baby 2.0: 35 weeks

>> Thursday, November 29, 2012

Up until the past few weeks, I honestly was still forgetting I was pregnant.  Well as much as you can forget with a growing middle section and jabbing kicks from within...sleep was great, my energy was good and all was pretty normal.

Well, my friends, heartburn has kicked in.  Sleep is getting harder and harder between peeing every hour and bruised rib cartilage from baby girl practicing her toe touches 24/7.  I'm swelling and have perfected the 9 month waddle. 

Please don't take these as complaints, it's just very apparent now that we're in the final stretch.  4 weeks or less until our baby in a box is our baby in our arms!

Size of Baby: coconut, measured 33 weeks at today's appointment

Total Weight Gain: total since getting pregnant: +20 - +22lbs. depending on the day

Continuing Symptoms: heartburn, always thirsty, milk is in, swelling in the afternoon and evening...

Maternity Clothes: pretty much all maternity, minus my pajama pants and t-shirts

Sleep: sleep is getting hard and uncomfortable, especially due to my hot spot/bruised ribs.  my sister sent me down her maternity pillow which is helping some.

What I'm Eating: pretty normal diet, just watching the sodium as much as possible.

Cravings: Slow churned chocolate ice cream and hot fudge...must have every night!

Movement: she's a busy girl in there, practing her toe-touches and back-flips all the time.  the rolling tummy and feet and legs stretching out makes for odd stomach shapes!

Labor Signs: some days more than others.  mainly just BH contractions.

Special Pregnancy Moments: getting Mattie Jayne's stocking and our double Bob, scheduling weekly OB appointments, buying our first pack of diapers and wipes, loading up the diaper bins, prepping Mattie's hospital attire and cute accessories...I've been a busy momma:)

Looks like you are right on schedule. Can't wait to meet my precious little grand daughter! Maybe she is practicing to be a ballerina one day. The new stroller is awesome. Love you Kristen!
