How far along?35 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 20 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Definitely
Stretch marks? This is my 3rd pregnancy. I prefer to not even pay attention to them.
Sleep: Decent. I’m pregnant and two toddlers crawl in my bed nearly every night; I don’t expect it to be fabulous.
Best moment this week: Lincoln told me several times, “Mommy, you’re the bestest ever!” and “Mommy, you’re my bestest friend!”
Movement: Does this kid ever not move?
Food cravings: Dr. Pepper (bad, bad, bad!)
Gender: don’t know
Labor Signs: Baby has dropped (Yay, I can breathe!), baby is head down, lots of Braxton Hicks contractions, and a few real contractions here and there.
Belly Button in or out? still in
What I miss: my husband
What I am looking forward to: Getting new flooring in my bedroom this weekend and taking the boys to Pumpkin Hollow!
Weekly Wisdom: No matter how desperate you get for food, do not give in to McDonald’s for breakfast. I felt yuck.
“Your baby doesn’t have much room to maneuver now that he’s over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds (pick up a honeydew melon). Because it’s so snug in your womb, he isn’t likely to be doing somersaults anymore (Ha!) , but the number of times he kicks should remain about the same. His kidneys are fully developed now, and his liver can process some waste products. Most of his basic physical development is now complete — he’ll spend the next few weeks putting on weight.” –babycenter.com
