35 weeks

{belly pic taken at 35 wks}

So why all the fanfare on the belly pic? Well you see, my friends, today marks the week in my last pregnancy that E was born. The fact that I have made it this far with very little complications is a huge ass deal. 35 weeks was the goal I had in my mind when I first found out I was pregnant. My next goal is 37 weeks. After that, it’s anyone’s game.

Pregnancy: 35 weeks

Weight Gain: +14 lbs.
Sleep: Surprisingly, still sleeping well. I do wake up a few times a night to roll myself over but I have been able to fall right asleep.
Gender: All boy!
Names: Wouldn’t you like to know!
Feeling: Overwhelmed. We have so much left to do and I don’t see how we are going to get it all done.
Health: Well the real contractions have started. Nothing to get excited about but I had them pretty much all weekend {nothing regular and pretty spaced out}. I have just one problem with them: I did not sign up for them!

Having the extra day off a week has proven to be just what my feet need! By Thursday, my feet were horrible and getting the silly putty look {I could move the fluid around}. However, after taking it easy all weekend and they looked great! Barely any swelling and I actually wore shoes on Sunday!

Movement: He is definitely slowing down. He’s probably running out of room and crammed in there!
Belly Button: Still have a belly button but it’s definitely not as hollow as before.
Cravings: I’m back on the ice cream train. I could eat a sundae every single day!
Next Appointment: April 25th  @ 36 weeks
