How far along? 35 weeks 6 days
Total weight gain/loss: I’m losing my mind here… I had a great answer for this just earlier today but didn’t get a chance to get it typed out :(. I really think my weight gain is showing in my face pretty bad now though :(.
How big is baby? Your baby’s the size of a coconut! She’s about 17.2 to 18.7 inches. From here on out, she won’t get much longer, but she’s plumping up. She’s now about 4.2 to 5.8 pounds, and she’ll put on a pound or more of baby fat before birth.
- Now, her hearing is fully developed, and she responds best to high-pitched noises.
Maternity Clothes? The shirt in this picture is new. I finally was able to wear it (warm enough outside). I really like it!
Stretch Marks? Oh let’s not even go there.
Best moment this week?getting tested for Strep B. ha! NOT! Have you ever had that done? It’s not the best feeling in the world… I absolutely love when hubby talks to her though. He usually tells her good morning and good night. I got a pedicure yesterday. Boy that felt nice! Although getting into the car I scuffed it up. Boooo!
Movement? I do think this is one thing I’ll miss once I have her. Some times it is uncomfortable and still catches me off guard but it’s sooooo sweet too. It’s also funny when my belly is lopsided.
Food Cravings/Aversions? OMG, yesterday I was soooo hungry. I was ready to eat every minute I turned around.
What I miss: Being able to pick things up off the floor. and not being so dang clumsy. I went to shave my legs on Tuesday night before my drs appt and pedicure on Wednesday and I dropped the stupid razor on the shower floor. I started hollering at hubby for help but he didn’t hear me so I turned the shower off and thought I’d sit on the floor to shave my legs. Yeah I couldn’t shave the top part because my belly was in the way and couldn’t shave the lower part because I couldn’t reach it. I hollered at hubby to come help me with the rest. He did a good job! Even though he told me he had no idea how to shave legs :).
What I’m looking forward to: Being able to pick things back up off the floor and hopefully getting my brain back!
Nausea/Vomiting? I can tell you either a) eating my vitamins or b) brushing my teeth or a combo of both makes me want to dry heave sometimes.
Labor signs? Well if I have… I’m not sure what I’m feeling.
Gender? We have had them verify it’s a girl 4 different times. I’d say she’s a girl 🙂
Belly Button in or out? oy!
Wedding rings on or off? Sadly still off. Now that warmer weather is coming, I’m fairly certain there is no way my rings would go on.
Sleep? This week, sadly has been fairly crappy.
Weekly Wisdom: Get the pedicure and go for a swim. Both are good for the body and your spirit. Oh and don’t drop your silly razor. Plus if you’re driving don’t, but if you’re sitting still, make yourself notes so that you can remember what you wanted to ask the dr!
Due Date: Saturday June 28 but she’s measuring about a week ahead of schedule… by golly I do believe she’ll come when she wants :). Wonder if I make it through Summer School before she comes…. After yesterday’s drs appt I’m thinking she’s not coming for the next week. Dr. is on vacation next week so I see the Nurse Practitioner. I told hubby if I’d put the car seat and hospital bag in the car (which isn’t packed yet….) she won’t come, but if I don’t, she’ll come. I just keep seeing the Irony….
