How far along? 35 weeks....however...the baby is measuring on the "big" side and the doctor has decided to "UnOfficially" move my due date from December 30th to December 21st!!! Baby Apple is estimated to weigh right now at this moment over 6 pounds! I'm very nervous about how big he will be on my due date!! So, I'm 35 weeks but really at 36 weeks? Not sure.
Maternity clothes? All Maternity. And I hate pants. Let me just say that if I could go pants-less all the time, I would. Pants are SO overrated.
Sleep: Well, now that I am sick (still fighting this cold slash flu crap) I'm really not sleeping...up all night coughing and getting up to use the restroom.
Best moment this week: Starting my weekly appointments! I am not dilated or effaced at the current moment. I go again next Monday.
Miss Anything? Nothing!
Movement: So much movement! And tons of hiccups!
Food cravings: Sweet Tea. Can't get enough of it.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Eating after 8pm and not taking a Tums.
Gender: Baby boy
Labor Signs: Nothing! Needs to stay that way for TWO more weeks at least!
Belly Button in or out? In! Stretched but still in!!! And apparantly I have a freckle that used to be on the inside of my belly button now showing on the outside. Kinda funny!
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: Over being sick but really LOVING being pregnant right now. I feel really good and I'm honestly thinking I'm going to miss this feeling.
Looking forward to: My next doctor's appointment on Monday the 3rd.
What does Alphamom have to say about week 35?
My week 35 thoughts:
So, yeah. This is the time I guess when soon-to-be mommies begin to feel the anxiety and nervousness and excitement all at the same time...I now realize I WILL be a mom in less than a month, it seems. I just can't believe it. The baby is moving SO MUCH and I know I am going to miss all of that movement (even the painful jabs into my ribs). I still have yet to pack my hospital bag...I just need to get to Target so I can buy some last minute items like nursing tanks and socks. Unsure if I would need it, I bought the baby a few weeks ago a "My First Christmas" onesie and it looks like he will be wearing it on Christmas day if my doctor's prediction is accurate! Hubs and I are going to Babies R Us this weekend to buy my breast pump and get some last minute items and then we are also installing the car seat. I think both of our goals is to just be prepared for anything at any moment. We are both trying to savor the time now and enjoy the pregnancy and enjoy being a family of 2 for a few more weeks. I am so sad that I had to cancel my maternity pictures but happy to have a few really beautiful shots to make up for it!
