This weekend I crossed the big 35/35 milestone . So basically, this means I have completed 35 weeks of pregnancy and have 35 days until my due date. So 1 month and 5 days ( or in my case today, 3 days). So here’s my 35/35 survey-
How far along? 35 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: not sure since last visit, but I know I’ve gained some b/c some clothes fit differently. I’ve stopped caring at this point.
Maternity clothes? Ready to not be wearing them anymore
Stretch marks? Yep, still there
Sleep: Very very bad. Some nights I wake up with terrible hip and back aches.
Best moment this week: Getting 80% of the nursery done. Also, I had the most delicious baby dream last night where I was chilling with the husib.
Movement: He was very quiet all weekend, but he is a kicking machine this weekend. Or maybe I just notice more when I’m at work. Also this kid definitely has his times mixed up, cuz his most active time is 10pm onwards.
Food cravings: Grapes, waters, grapefruit and water and grilled cheese sandwiches, or mac cheese…okay pretty much anything with cheese.
Labor Signs: What about your kid kicking the crap out of your cervix? Does that count? I mean he obviously has figured out that thats the way out. Also some unexciting but painful cramps.
Pregnancy Symptoms: Heartburn continues, swollen feet and new for this week- carpal tunnel, now my hands hurt too.
Belly Button in or out? My coworkers say its out, I say its still flat
What I miss: A Dirty martini and oysters, from watching MadMen this week. Sigh
What I am looking forward to: Being a 100% done with the nursery. Getting the baby out.
Weekly Wisdom: There is nothing fun about doing manual labor (setting up the nursery) this late in the game. Should have done this when I had more energy.
Milestones: Finished our Childbirth class…I am now armed with all sorts of labor and baby care information. J changed a diaper on a practice doll for the first time in his life. We are on our way to becoming parents.
