35 Weeks!

How far along are you?
~35 weeks, 2 days! 5 weeks left!

Your baby, now as hefty as a honeydew melon at 5 1/4 pounds, doesn't have much room to maneuver in your belly. (Length: more than 18 inches, head to heel.)

What symptoms are you experiencing?
~A couuple days of headaches. :(
~Pelvic/pubic bone pain
~Occasional contractions..not too regularly
~My nemesis...carpal tunnel.

How are you feeling?
~This past week was HOT and I have been swollen, uncomfortable and exhausted.
~I have been sleeping well though!

Any Midwife/Doctor appointments/ultrasounds/tests this past week and how did they go?
~Upcoming Monday. :) Will update later today.

Anything big happening in your personal life (moving, work related, family, etc.)?
~My son leaving for a few weeks to visit dad and grandparents. :(
(I'm happy for him to see them, but miss him terribly when he's gone.)

~Ooh! I got officially (re)proposed to this week!! Sweet, romantic and a culmination of all of our hopes for the future!

Any fears or hopes you want to get off your chest?
~We're getting everything together as far as her room and necessities...I'm anxious to see her and know what she'll look like. :)

Any belly pics or ultrasound photos from this week?
Any food cravings?
~anything lemon-lime flavored --DQ slushies, freezepops, gatorade

Tell us your favorite thing about your pregnancy this week.
~G talking to her about us. ♥

What has been the most surprising thing about this pregnancy?
~Primarily, the swelling and carpal tunnel misery. And I'm again shocked at how quickly it has flown by!

Baby brain moment of the week?
~I, again, drove the wrong direction...apparently not remembering where I was going!

Random Question of the Week:
What do you imagine your baby will look like? (hair colour, daddy's nose, etc)
~G and I talk about this all the time! We don't have many guesses...but I'm hoping she'll have blue eyes just like her big brother. ♥  She definitely has G's feet as we've seen in ultrasounds haha!



  1. 35 weeks! we're almost neck and neck! i'm so excited for you...and you look great! I left you something on my blog!
