35 weeks! AKA 35/35 (yesterday)

Yesterday, Saturday the 7th we hit 35 weeks!! Woo Hoo! 8 Days until stitch removal! Eeek.

It's been a while since I've done the survey so I decided to do it this week.


 
35 Week Pregnancy Survey

How far along? 35 weeks!

Weight gain? up about 20 lbs! Hard to believe that just 7 weeks ago, at 28 weeks I was only up 8! That is 12lbs in 7 weeks!

How big is baby? at her 32 week scan she was measuring in at 4lbs 2oz. In the lower 40's percentile. Her abdomen looked to be measuring a little smaller (15th percentile) so they will be monitoring that at her scan next week. Her head and all the other measurements were spot on or ahead. They said with her smaller abdomen, she just may be a smaller baby. Not a surprise since Joe and I are both smaller.

Maternity clothes? The plan is to be off bed rest hopefully in 8 days. I don't see a point in buying maternity clothes when she could come any day after that stitch comes out. I'm going to get by on non maternity sundresses that I've ordered online, that way I can wear them all summer long. Also yoga pants, leggings and the few cute maternity outfits/Capri's that I was handed down from a friend! I also have some maternity pants I bought prior to bed rest.

Food cravings: Not really, I just love my sweets still. I was never such a fan of chocolate milk or candy. I used to love popcorn, pickles and salty stuff. Now, I have no interest in them.

Labor Signs: None. The Braxton Hicks contractions even slowed down a few weeks ago. I really think the stitch is what irritated everything and caused them so often.

Belly Button in or out? I always said it would pop out then it started to look like I was wrong. Well it popped! LOL. Sometimes it is still in though. Mainly pops when I lay on my side but the "outline" is still in and it barely sticks out. Joe said it isn't out as he imagined. I guess that is good? haha

Stretch marks? Nooo BUT sometimes I think I see the start of one forming, I think. My Dr was ever surprised and commented that I am lucky and have "nice skin". I hope I'm not jinxed now!

How are you feeling? Good. I have a hard time getting out of bed and go stuck on the shower floor after shaving my legs the other day. Ha. It's just harder to get around but I feel good.

What I am looking forward to: Getting off bed rest. Finley coming!

What I miss: Going out with friends for drinks!

Sleep: Horrible! Pregnancy insomnia sucks. I go to bed at 4 a.m now. Uggh. Joe seems to think this is good and that he is somehow off the hook because I'll be up at night with Finley soon enough. What he doesn't get is that I sleep in until noon now. I'm not going to be able to do that when she's here....Just because I'm up all night doesn't mean I don't catch up in the day!
I'll also add that Finley is head down and has been since at least 24 weeks so no breach worries. She is doing a great job at letting her little head warp that cervix!


Your Baby in Week 35 of Pregnancy

Your baby is standing tall (so to speak) this week at about 20 inches and continues her steady weight gain (she’s about 5.5 pounds). While she won't get much longer, she will continue to pack on the pounds — including large amounts of baby fat — right up 'til delivery day. Something else that's moving at a mind-boggling pace these day: fetal brain development! There’s a lot going on inside that tiny head, which is, by the way, still soft to allow an easier exit through the birth canal.
