Week 35

March 2, 2015

How Far Along: 35 weeks and 1 day!

Weight Gain/Loss: I didn’t have an OB appointment this week so I don’t know how much more I’ve gained. Yea, I could step on the scale at home but I don’t want to. Haha!

Sleep: Actually, not bad at all this past week! I am so incredibly thankful! I feel like the extra sleep right before he gets here is exactly what I would need and I’m so glad I’m getting it!

Best Moment This Week: My third baby shower was yesterday and it was so nice! It was all church ladies and I loved every single minute of it! Little Guy is SO loved!

Movement: I’m still feeling him frequently enough to know he’s doing well but it’s decreased enough so I’m not as uncomfortable as I was before.

Food Cravings/Aversions: Give me all the food!

What I Miss: Walking without waddling. Having my entire body NOT ache constantly. Being able to zip my boots all the way up! The list can go on forever if you let me.

Stretch Marks: Still none!

Belly Button: Same… flat with MAYBE a slight indention.

Mood: I know this isn’t a mood, but I’m just tired all the time. It’s the first trimester all over again you guys.

Labor Signs: I can’t tell by looking but I think he’s dropped. I’m peeing every hour and I’m feeling the needle like pressure on my cervix. Exciting but uncomfortable.

Milestones: We are SO close to being done with the nursery and the guest bedroom! Once they’re complete I’ll be completely ready for him to get here!

Upcoming Appointments/Events: This week is the last week I’ll go without seeing my OB. Starting at 36 weeks, I’ll see her every Monday until his arrival. READY ready ready!

What I look forward to: It’s a given that I’m looking forward to his birth but I have no idea WHEN that will happen. I do, however, know that my fourth and last baby shower is this coming Saturday and I’m REALLY excited about it!

Weekly Wisdom: Essential oils are God-sent. I cured my cough a few days ago by rubbing lemon essential oil on my check and neck right before bed. NO coughing fit whatsoever at night. AMAZING! I know this has everything to do with why I’m been getting more sleep. I can’t wait to try out more essential oils!
