Baby Bump: Week 35


How far along? 35 weeks.  Two more left until full term - yay!

Weight gain/loss: I unfortunately glanced at the scale at my appointment this past week.  I've gained about 42 pounds.  It still seems to be all baby, so I guess I can't complain.  Much.

Feeling: Frustrated.  It's hard to move.  It's hard to sleep.  I never seem to make any progress on the dishes or the laundry or the sewing projects.  It's hard to care for a little boy who wants to make the biggest messes in the world and destroy all my furniture with his cars. 

Don't let his innocent face deceive you.  He tried to get in the trash can and toilet just one too many times while I took my bump photos today, so he was sentenced to a few minutes in the baby jail.

Maternity clothes?  Yes.  Some of the shirts are starting to be too short, whereas my jeans are randomly falling off?  Are they just losing their elasticity because I'm so enormous?!

Sleep: Lincoln slept most of the night the past two days, which was an improvement over the rest of the week.  If I could convince him to sleep a little later in the morning, it would rock my world.  Falling asleep is starting to be really difficult; I can't get comfortable for anything.  Especially when Lincoln ends up in bed with us because he won't sleep otherwise. :\

Food cravings:  I've reached the point of pregnancy where pretty much everything I eat tastes like dirt 95% of the time.  Delightful, right?  Really looking forward to the return of my normal taste buds in a few weeks.  On this note, however, I had Pizza Hut for lunch and even though I am suffering heartburn an hour later - it was delicious and totally worth it.

Gender: Still a girl. 
 
Movement?  I've been trying this week to identify exactly what little appendages are poking me.  Andrew thinks he felt fingers a few days ago, and we thought maybe a knee or elbow yesterday.  She is pretty much bouncing on my bladder - even Lincoln is no longer interested in following me to the bathroom all the time (and this is usually one of the day's highlights).

What I miss?  Feeling like myself, food, sleep.  Being able to do small tasks like walking up the stairs once or taking a shower without feeling like I might fall over.

Best moment this week: We had some great fun this past weekend at Enchanted Forest and the pumpkin patch.  Also got to have some time out with the hubby and friends last night to see an early screening of Wreck-It Ralph!  That was fun.

What I'm looking forward to:  Reaching full term so that I can start trying to walk this baby out of me.  Also anxious to meet a friend's baby who is due to arrive within the next few days!  Can't wait to sneak in some baby snuggles even before Adelaide makes her appearance!

Next Appointment: Wednesday, October 31.  Weekly appointments now - that means the rest of pregnancy should go quickly, right?!
