35 Weeks - Pregnancy #2

Each Sunday, I'd like to do a highlights post, including a picture, summarizing the differences in my pregnancy from week to week.  I totally "grabbed" this idea from Kelly.  I did this with my pregnancy with Hadley, as well, and I still think it is a great way to jot down the things that I don't want to forget later on.  I'll probably write these on Saturday nights and attach the picture the next day.  That way I can stay semi-technology free :)

Pregnancy Highlights:

How far along:  35 weeks - Third Trimester

Size of baby:  Baby Boy is between 19 and 22 inches crown to feet and weighs as much as a large cantaloupe (around 5.5 pounds)

Total weight gain/loss:  At my appointment last Wednesday, I had gained back the two pounds I lost, so my official weight gain this pregnancy so far is back to 18 pounds.

Maternity clothes:  My "typical" clothing attire is a soft sleeveless tank and soft knit shorts.  If I'm feeling super fancy or I know someone might be dropping by, I might put on a stretchy dress.  But most days, it's the former.

Gender:A less bouncy, more roll-y baby boy.

Movement:  He moves, but he really stays curled up in there.  I guess there's just not a lot of room to stretch.  Although, when he stretches, I sure know it!  Geez, my ribs take a beating.

Sleep:  Oh sleep.  I miss you. A typical night has me up every hour and a half to two hours.  I told The Husband that I'm almost looking forward to those newborn days because I just might get more sleep than I'm getting now. Ha!

What I miss:  Full on hugs

Cravings:  ice cream (which I can't have) and sherbet (which I CAN have!)

Symptoms: Minor back pain every once in a while and an enormous amount of pressure in my pelvic region

Exercise: I'm hoping to be able to go walk at the gym starting next week.

Belly Button in or out: It's still flat.

Wedding ring on or off: On :)

Happy or moody most of the time:  I was pretty happy this week!

Looking forward to:  Week 36--my doctor said I can go back to doing what I did before bed rest if I make it to 36 weeks!

Best moment this week: I had a couple of best moments!  Getting a haircut and pedicure after months of waiting on Friday, seeing some of my friends and family at a small family shower (which I'll write about later) in my home town Saturday afternoon, and being surprised by The Husband with quite an expensive gift last night. It was a busy, lovely weekend, and I'm SPENT! I'm going to go lie down right after I hit "Publish."


  1. We loved having you. I'm glad you were able to do all the things you wanted to this weekend. We can't wait to get the "call." I'm going to have our travel bag packed. Hope all goes well at your doctor's appt. Love you.

    1. I've got my bag almost packed :)

  2. I wish I coulda looked half as cute as you do pregnant!!! It was good seeing you and that belly :) Cant wait to meet and snuggle him!!

    1. Whatever! You were adorable :)
