How far along? 35 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +22
Symptoms? Back aches, pinches and jabs, gas! and SWOLLEN FEET! My feet are officially blowing up like balloons. I am very thankful for being able to live in sandals for the next 5 weeks!
Sleep: Sleeping well as long as I can get comfortable. I’m always worried with all the flip flopping I do in the night, that I am going to flip baby head up!
Best moment this week: Being back at home in Memphis to visit with family and celebrate Elizabeth and Dan’s wedding! Although Memphis is a hole, I always enjoy going back and seeing so many friends and family.
Miss Anything? Just feeling myself again. Although my symptoms aren’t too terrible and I’ve had it pretty easy this whole pregnancy, I am ready to to not feel like my stomach is taking over my whole body!
Movement: All over the place! She likes to sit right under my ribs….waiting for the big drop!
Food cravings: Nothing in particular. Just being hungry all of the time. Which then makes me eat like I’ve been starving myself the last 9 months. And then I feel like a bloated cow. Ugh.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not this week!
Gender prediction: Bows!
Labor Signs: No thank you! Sometimes I get crampy, but no signs of contractions.
Belly Button in or out? Big and flat. I don’t see it popping out at all.
Wedding rings on or off? Off. And if my hands react anything like my feet have been, they will be off until after little girl is born.
Mood: Just trying to stay happy and not let little things take away from one of the most special times in our lives. With as much stress and things to do, I always have to remind myself to relax and enjoy the time now.
Weekly Wisdom: “Enjoy the little things in life, for some day you will look back and realize they were the BIG things.” -Robert Brault
Looking forward to: Our first shower this weekend! Really, it is a small MANshower that Drew’s co-workers are throwing for him. AND, just looking forward to being one week closer to meeting our sweet girl!
