35 Weeks


How far along: 35 Weeks
Total weight gain: 26 pounds
Maternity clothes: Yep, and trying to find clothes to wear home from the hospital seems to be a task... I ordered some tops and bottoms from Gap's Pure Body line and they feel great!  Guess that is what I will live in post-pregnancy for a while.
Stretch marks: none
Sleep: Hit and miss...just when I think I have found the secret to getting comfortable and sleeping more than an hour at a time something changes and I am tossing and turning again!  I have also been waking up super thirsty in the middle of the night..and let me just tell you the sensation of being thirsty and feeling like you might wet your pants before you make it to the bathroom at the same time is a very odd feeling ;)
Best moment this week: Tuesday morning at my 5:30 am BodyPump class some of my participants had made a really cute banner and set my bench up with diapers and an adorable onesie and bib they had made for baby girl!  It was so sweet!  Last week will be my last week to teach classes and I will admit I am a little sad about it!
Miss anything: I am feeling very pregnant this week... I miss the way my body used to be able to do the simple things like tie my shoes or turn over in the bed without getting crazy out of breath.  
Movement: She is still very active in there right now even though she is definitely running out of room!  Her little booty has made its way up under my breast bone at the top of my rib cage and it is extremely uncomfortable.  I tried to coax her out of there the other night with a bag of cold peas and she let me know very quickly she was going to have none of that!  She was wiggling and kicking like crazy, which hurt even worse than her just lodged in there.  Guess she is just stuck there until she decides it is time to come out.
Food cravings: Well, I had brownies twice yesterday and for breakfast and a snack today so I would say still loving the chocolate!  We have been watching a lot of Food Network's Diners Drive ins and Dives and I had a craving for a philly cheesesteak like whoa this week, which I gave in to and it was delicious!
Anything making you sick: not a thing
Gender: girl
Labor signs: no
Symptoms: Besides the crazy pain under my ribs and just overall feeling of being a beached whale...I feel GREAT ;)
Belly button in or out: old faithful is still holding in there, for now!
Wedding rings on or off: on...blood pressure is still really low (112/50 yesterday) and no swelling!
Happy or moody most of the time: I am feeling so many emotions here lately!  I have had such a wonderful pregnancy and I have truly loved every minute of it.  As the end draws near I am so excited to meet this sweet little angel inside of me, but I am anxious at the same time.  I would say overall very happy though and trying to soak up every moment of these last few weeks :)
Looking forward to: Finishing up the nursery (as much as I can in our current house) and just getting everything ready for my baby girl!

Update on our house... the footing is poured!  Next comes the slab and then basement walls!

In other news:  We went to our first Barons game at the new Regions park!  The game was super boring, but the park was really cool and I got turtle track ice cream with caramel sauce in a cute little Barons hat :)
