35 Week Bumpdate

How far along: 35 weeks. 5 weeks OR less to go! 
Size of baby: Large cantaloupe
Baby’s size and weight: 19-22 in, 5.5 lbs
My total weight gain: 44 pounds
Baby’s development: 

-Baby has probably reached birth length but packing on the pounds
-Fetal brain development 
Stretch marks: none.
Maternity clothes: Yes; only a few more weeks!!

Gender: Girl.
Movement: Yes; not as much as before since she is getting so squished in there. 

Sleep: Still taking Unisom nightly and sleep is getting extremely uncomfortable. I was up from 4-6 a.m. because I couldn’t get comfortable and was thinking of all the things I need to do before we move/she arrives. 
What I miss: Being able to move at a non-glacial pace, fit into my clothes, and feeling “normal”. 

Food cravings: Mashed potatoes. 
Symptoms: Some Braxton Hicks contractions, exhausted, uncomfortable, and huge. I’m growing totally differently this pregnancy and just feel like a whale.
Nolan is: testing me like crazy. But he saw Santa this past week and was such a good boy! He can’t wait for him to bring him a drum 🙂

Zach is: ALMOST done! Less than a week until our family is whole again <3

What I’m looking forward to: having my internal check to see if I’m dilated/effaced and having Zach rejoin our family.  

Best moments: seeing baby girl and knowing the next time we see her will be in person when I’m holding her.

Funny things: I put Nolan in time-out the other day and told him he has to listen to me because I’m the boss. His response? “No, I’m the boss”. I couldn’t help but chuckle… Oh and looking through old pictures… we can all get a good laugh from those. 

Not so funny things: I’m terrified of going into labor on the drive to GA. PRAYING I either go before or after that. I kind of secretly want her to come next week after Z has arrived and before we have to leave Ohio. I know she will come when she’s ready though so let the baby watch begin…

In other news, I just had to share these amazing shoes I got from OASAP the other day… hello gorgeous. They are SO blinged out and I love them. They are perfect for the holidays and since I won’t be wearing high heels or a blinged out sexy dress, these will do the trick just fine. 

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! This is the last weekend we have to spend without the hubs and I could not be more thrilled! See you all Monday! 🙂
