Now that we're down to the last few weeks of this pregnancy, I thought I'd do weekly bump-dates since things are changing (hopefully) a little more rapidly now! I don't want to forget this time, and since this blog is my scrapbook, it's my way of documenting every little thing.
|last weekend's baby shower|
How far along: 35 weeks! We're in the NINTH month!! Home stretch.
Size of baby: Varying results on this one...take your pick: butternut squash, honeydew melon, or large cantaloupe! She's about 6 pounds and 19-22 inches long.
Total weight gain: +22-23 pounds.
Movement: She's probably getting a little tight for space in there, but she's still kicking away :) That seems to be about the only movement she's maneuvering these days...not as much rolling!
Sleep: Same as last week--could be better, could be worse. I wake several times, but I can usually log some good sleep. I find that I sleep better the closer it gets to my alarm ;)
What I miss: Just being comfortable in general. Not much longer!
Cravings: Nothing new...milk & cereal. Most everything sounds good, though. I'm really looking forward to some P.F. Changs this weekend!!
Symptoms: Sporadic BH contractions, peeing ALL the time, lower back pain at the end of the day, and some pelvic pressure.
Maternity clothes: Both. My wardrobe is becoming more limited. As seen below...I'm even outgrowing t-shirts! Yowza. #PreggoProblems
Best moments this week:
--Our wonderful Temple friends showered us with love & gifts!
--We feel fully prepared to bring home a baby! Except for that whole car-seat situation...we're still waiting on it. Is that bad?!
--Our maternity photos will be ready this week....yay! Can't wait to see those.
--We graduated from childbirth class ;)
