35 Weeks



How far along?  35 weeks.

How big is the baby this week?  Baby Center says he is is the size of a honeydew melon which is roughly 5 1/4 pounds.  All development is now complete and he's just fattening up! Hopefully not too fat- we don't need him taking after his dad who was close to a 10 lb. baby. 

Total Weight Gain?  27 pounds.   

Maternity Clothes?  Yes. It's starting to get warm and my options are a little limited, but I was able to find some non maternity linen shorts with an elastic waistband last week. I bought them in two colors and now regret not buying the third. I'm all about stocking my closet with non-maternity "forgiving" clothes for this summer that I can also wear now. I figure having some cute transitional pieces ready to go will keep me from wanting to jump off a cliff the first time I try to put on my pre-pregnancy shorts.  

Best Moment of the Week?  Getting some key things checked off the to do list. My parents came over to assist with some of the larger projects. We were able to replace the carpet in our master closet (it had some bare spots from where we had ripped out old shelving to put in elfa), organized the kitchen to make room for bottles and baby goods, hung and hemmed curtains, and hauled off some remodeling trash. I should probably be more ashamed that at 32 I'm at my most productive when my parents are there to assist, but I'm not. They are so helpful and Den and I are so appreciative.

Trouble Sleeping?  Yes. I just can't really get comfortable anymore. 

Miss Anything?  General mobility.  D had to fasten the ankle strap on my sandals this morning after ten minutes of me trying unsuccessfully due to the fact that this large bump was obstructing my view.

Movement?  All the time unless I've called someone over to feel him move. Then he stops immediately. 

Food Cravings?  Choco tacos. Easter Candy. My mom's sugar cookies. Sensing a theme?

Belly Button - In or Out?  Outie and then some. 

Symptoms?  Achey back. No sleep. Developing a slight waddle.

Wedding Ring - Off or on?  I can get it on, but with the temperature rising, it's starting to get a little snug. 

Happy or Moody?  Probably somewhere in between. Checking things off our to do list keeps me in good spirits, but the general inability to move around like I'm used to is a little annoying. 

Looking Forward to?  We have our second and final baby shower this weekend that is being thrown by my mother-in-law's friends. I haven't met most of them so it will be nice to put faces with names. After that we can wrap up the final checklist of baby needs (carseat!) and we should be officially ready for this dude's arrival.
