Weekly Check-In: 35 Weeks!

How far along: 
35 weeks

How big is baby: Butternut Squash
You’ve reached 35 weeks, and your uterus has grown about 1,000 times its original size, a number that might sound exaggerated to everyone else -- but to you it probably feels more like a million.

Total weight gain:
+26.5 pounds (Yes that was a 4lb increase--but really only 1 pound since I lost right??)

Maternity clothes?

Belly button in or out?
OUT and it hurts... I seem to catch it on almost everything!

I seriously don't want to talk about it. I swear I'll get more sleep when she comes (unless she wakes up every 15-30minutes) then I have for the past month or so... Yeah I'm a bit bitter.

Best moment this week: 
Reaching the milestone 35/35. I like saying I only have 35 days left until I'm due. 5 weeks sounds soooo long, but 35 days sounds soooo short! Oh and baby girl has dropped. Alot. Her head currently grinds into my pelvic bone, and I can breath a bit again. Yay!!! Hopefully this means her debute will be when everyone is predicting (April 21-25th)

Food Cravings: 
Fruit. You should see the fridge. It's got tons of fruit in it. Strawberries, kiwi, cantalope, honeydew, I'm gonna start getting some pineapple here soon! 

Food Aversions:
Carbonated beverages. Although I had a few sips of Josh's Mt. Dew this week and didn't really have a problem. I actual CRAVE soda, but am afraid to drink it because it's been so long--and the last time I really drank it, it made me sickly...

Insomnia, lower back and hip pain (to the point where I can't walk in the morning), crazy dreams, hemorrhoids, and all the other usuals. Heartburn is back with a vengeance...even taking zantac twice a day--I'm still having to pop but hopefully that means she has just as much or MORE hair then our Gabriel did. :-) She has hiccups all.the.time!!!! Also started having BH contractions...and some real ones too.

She's started slowing down on movements. But when she moves my whole belly wibbles and wobbles. And each knee, foot, whatever it is that jabs my belly hurts like crazy!

Miss Kellie Rain
What I'm looking forward to: 
Being a family of 4. Gabe has FINALLY started saying baby-- so I can't wait until he sees the baby and puts into place that it'll be his new sister.

What I miss: 
Sleep, Energy, Fitting into clothes....

2 weeks until I am full term *which is when I gave birth to Gabe* I'm 35/35 today, meaning I'm 35 weeks with ONLY 35 days left.

Next appointment: 
April 16th @ 10:50am!!! :-)
