35 Weeks - Pregnancy #4
Each Monday, 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've done this with my three previous pregnancies (you can go to the search box and type in "pregnancy," or "week #" if you're interested in how my previous pregnancies progressed), 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.
How far along: 35 weeks
Size of baby: This little one is over 18 inches long (head to toe) and weighs a little more than 5 lbs (about the size of a honeydew melon) 🍈
Total weight gain/loss: I'm up 27 pounds total as of my appointment today. Sheesh. It would be unrealistic to hope this baby is 10lbs, right?!
Maternity clothes: anything that still fits or The Husband's clothes when I'm desperate :/
Gender: boy :) 💙
Movement: big, jerky movements, shoving his butt out of my right side or into my belly button
Sleep: Same as the last two weeks: Sleep has been awful with my kids, my uterus tightening, and my many trips to the bathroom.
What I miss: putting on socks and shoes and shaving with ease
Cravings: chocolate; salty foods
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks contractions and uterine tightness for long periods of time, and heartburn heartburn heartburn
Exercise: just stretching this week and some arm workouts with my stretchy band
Best moment this week: Hmmm. Well I'm super pumped that I made it to 35 weeks!!
