How Far Along: 35 weeks, 5 weeks to go!
Size of baby: Baby S is over 18 inches long, the size of a honeydew melon, and weighs about 5 pounds.
Weight Gain/Loss: I'm weighing in at 164 (well, 163.6 today, but it might be a fluke). I feel pretty good about that!
Body Changes: Nothing more than the usual.
Gender: It's a GIRL!
Movement: Since the beginning, this baby has liked to hang out on the right side of my belly. I feel more rolls than anything else now. Like always, she's most active in the morning and then right after dinner.
Sleep: I've given up on good sleep. Most nights, I do pretty well, but I'm waking up a lot trying to find a good position. My arms fall asleep. My legs, shoulders and even ears hurt. I hate sleeping on my side!
What I'm looking forward to: Maternity photos this weekend!! As long as the weather cooperates!
Cravings: I had a sudden craving for corn bread last night...
Symptoms: Some mild Braxton Hicks. Slight swelling. Back pain. Anxiety over being so close!
Best Moment This Week: Finally washing stuff. I know, it isn't a shining best moment, but I feel so accomplished now. On Monday, I did 3 loads of laundry - two of baby clothes and one of baby items (blankets, cloth wipes, etc.) Yesterday, I finally washed our cloth diapers! The prefolds, I washed and dried 3 times to prep them. Then I tossed in a load of the other diapers, luckily only having to do that once. Everything is all packed away :)
I'm slowly working through our baby junk room and finding places for things. Like I said last week, I want to be as ready as I can by 36 weeks. It'll just be easier than way, in case for some reason my body decides to go into labor early. I hope it doesn't!
I've been taking photos of myself since 6 weeks. Looking back, I now can never say that I was fat lol. Check out what has happened between 6 weeks and 35!
Look at that growth!
