Week 35- I nearly missed it!

Tuesday, April 09, 2013

ARGH! I nearly missed my week 35 update! It's been a hectic hectic week and I am simply exhausted both emotionally and physically.

BUT I made it. With one day to go. (will post 36 week update later this week) Here's a brief update of the week.

How far along?
35 weeks. Baby is probably around 6-6.5 pounds now and is really running out of room. No one ever told me how painful his rolls can be! I'm carrying him all out front- which is awesome for my back, but hell on my ligaments. He rolls over and I wonder if he's taking a scalpel to my muscles to cut his way out!

Weight Gain
I've gained what appears to be 11-15 pounds.

Belly button in or out?
It is so gosh darn close to popping out when I am laying down. I don't think it will pop out when I'm standing up though. I took a picture of my belly button this morning just to commemorate. I've always had a wicked innie, so I feel cute with an outie belly button.

Week recap:
Good week pregnancy wise. I'm feeling ready for him to arrive- my parents brought me back a carseat from the US- saved me a crapload of cash in doing so. Now that I walk by his room and see it sitting there waiting for me to be term to install, I realise that I'm starting to get excited to meet the kid.

I've been having stronger contractions as my body starts to warm up for labour. They aren't fun, but I'll WELCOME them from week 37- contractions bring me my baby! It's scary to have stronger braxton hicks when I'm not yet term, but I have to remind myself that it's normal, and everything will be okay.

Looking Forward to?
My OB appointment is TOMORROW! And I'm thinking positively that my tests and sonars and all that will come back clear for natural birth in water. I'm SO excited to have my last growth sonar, and double check that all is well in there. Saturday is my baby shower which I am VERY excited for too. Great week ahead!
