How far along: 35 Weeks 3 Days
Total weight gain/loss: 20lbs I know I shouldn't complain, but man I hate that!
Maternity clothes: Yes for the shirts. I'm still wearing my regular jeans with a Bella Band to help hold them up since I can't button them anymore... I should cave and get regular maternity jeans, but I just can't find Tall's anywhere... and if I've made it this far without them...
Stretch marks: Definitely gaining! Those stupid ugly suckers have popped up on the other side fo my stomach now too!
Sleep: Sleeping for about 2 hours at a time... guess I'm getting ready for those every 2 hour feedings to come! Mostly waking up now because of hip and stomach pain.
Best moment last week: Man, I don't know!
Movement: strong as ever, and getting painful!
Food cravings: Nope, well no new ones... still liking spicy food!
Labor Signs: Actually had to go to Labor and Delivery on Thursday at exactly 35 weeks. Was having pain in my back and front areas, so they wanted me to be monitored. I was having contractions, but nothing too strong or in any pattern.
Belly Button in or out: Innie...but a very shallow innie!
What I miss: Really starting to miss a glass of wine every now and then. I think because I'm getting to the end and know that I'll be able to have one soon is making it that much harder to refrain!
What I am looking forward to: Delivery. Knowing that as of this coming Thursday, the 14th, I'll be 36 weeks and they'll no longer 'stop' labor is exciting. I still fully expect to go over my due date, cause most 1st timers do, but I can still hope!
Milestones: Last Thursday on the 7th, we hit 35/35 as in 35 week pregnant and only 35 days to go!
Baby’s senses are continuing to improve -- when light peeks in through your (extremely) stretched belly, those tiny eyelids and irises blink and dilate. And, baby can now recognize and react to simple songs… time to start practicing your lullabies! Growth (at least inside your womb) is starting to slow, and you may notice baby descend into your pelvis at the end of this month.
