35 Week Update

What happened to weeks 32, 33, and 34?
Well, pregnancy brain happened...
I literally kept forgetting.
Each night I would think to myself:
"Tomorrow I must take a picture and blog!"
Then the following day I would completely forget... all day.
But hey... I remembered today!

So here's my 35 week update...

How Far Along:
  35 Weeks

Size of the Baby:
Baby Girl is around the size of a coconut...
apx 17-18 inches long and weighing in around 5lbs!

Maternity Clothes:
I haven't bought anything new recently,
but I did buy a super comfy skirt that my midwives recommended
is the perfect skirt to wear during labor.
Luckily I'm not required to wear the hospital gown if I don't want to.

Weight gain:
I'm now over the 30lb weight gain marker...
my total gain is now 31 pounds.

Sleep oh sleep, when will you return to me?

Best Moment of the Week:
My mom came to visit me this past week.
It was so wonderful to have her here,
give me advice and go shopping for baby girl with me. 
Such a blessing.

  She's been having the hiccups a lot this week.
Crazy feeling to have a continual jolt in your belly for a long period of time.

Food Cravings:
I feel like I've been blessed by not really having
any "crazy cravings" during my pregnancy.
But watermelon has been sounding great this week.
To bad I have yet to find a super delicious one.

Baby Girl.

Belly Button in or out:
It's half-way out.
My midwives said that they doubt it will pop out
anymore than it already has...
which is good because depending on the top I wear
you can't really tell through my clothing.

Wedding ring on or off:

Anything making you queasy or sick:
I don't like the flavor of eggs again.

What I miss:
Walking without...
1. Being tired after walking 5 minutes (basically to the lower YWAM campus and back).
2. Having a few Braxton Hicks contractions which makes me walk SUPER SLOWLY. 
3. Being able to breath. 
4. Wanting to come home and immediately take a nap.

What I am looking forward to:
Being able to hold my little girl.
I'm so ready!

The nursery is pretty much done!!!
We just have a few small things to add and fix,
then I'll show you pictures!

Ways to Relax:
I've been reading a ton of pregnancy/birthing/parenting books
to make myself feel more prepared.
Is it working and do I feel more prepared?... I have no idea. :/
But to relax I have been reading the massive classic novel Gone with the Wind.
It's one of those types of books that you are nervous when you first start
but within just a few pages you can't put it down.
Which is good, since the book is about 1300 pages!!!!

If you haven't read it yet, The Happiest Baby on the Block was by FAR the most helpful book I read for babyhood. It's $14 VERY well spent, trust me ;)
