35 weeks - Dec 2nd

How far along: 35 weeks 
Total weight gain: 35 lbs roughly
Maternity clothes: I have been wearing the belly band since I was about 10 weeks. I am definitely in maternity pants, and have a couple maternity tops, but other than that i have found a few shirts that are long enough! :)  
Best moment of the week: Maternity photo shoot this week!
Food cravings: chocolate
Food aversions: nothing.. go figure.. :) 

boobs sore- no
cramps- nope
tiredness-I get tired easily, but thats about it.
irritability- I have my days...
acne- none!
bloat- a little swelling
burning muscle pain in upper abdomen- gone
boob leaking- I had this happen again! 

*warning of TMI- my lady bits have been feeling bruised!! I don't understand why.. but it is slightly annoying! But fun to know I am getting so close to birth and that is probably part of the reason! 
 Movement:  She seemed to lower again this week, which I feel less movement from her when she does that
Gender: Girl! 
What I’m looking forward to: becoming full term... I got several more weeks to go :) 
What I miss: bending over with ease. :) being thinner! No stretchmarks
Next appt: Dec 12th
How big is baby:  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, 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.

  1. I missed this post - - beautiful self portrait. I swear, I love how gorgeous pregnancy makes women look. You're stunning! Continuing to hold you in my prayers as you reach the end! Charge the batteries - I spend the hospital stay taking photos with just the bright hospital lights and the stark white bed linen...
