35 weeks

Total weight gain: 29 lbs!! Part of me thinks that weight gain is crazy and I’m not sure where it’s all going, but then another part of me feels absolutely huge and can totally feel the just about 30 lb weight gain. Let’s just say I’m excited for when the scale starts going down, as opposed to up, every single week. However, I am happy to know that part of my weight gain each week is going towards our little noodle chubbin’ up in there!
Baby’s heart beat: 131 bpm at today’s appointment
Baby is now the size of: A coconut. She is weighing in at over 5.5 lbs and is over 18 inches long.
Biggest craving this week: Cheese curls. I had this craving at the beginning of my pregnancy and then this week it came back full blast. I did, however, make myself feel better by buying organic whole grain cheese curls, but still. Really? Why can’t I crave something with 0 calories like water??
How I’m Feeling: I think I’m a narcoleptic. The other day I was sitting on the couch with my head resting back and 5 mins later I was asleep. And then 45 minutes later I woke up with the biggest crick in my neck ever. Seriously though, I can fall asleep at the drop of a hat. And besides getting up to pee one time during the night, I’m still sleeping pretty soundly, minus some crazy dreams I’ve been having lately.
How clothes fit: The same as I said before. I look into my closet on a daily basis and think about how much I miss all my cute tops and skirts and shorts. Let’s hope we will all be reunited soon.
Movement: Her body rolls are crazy and they manipulate my stomach into impossible looking positions. Her kicks and punches also take my breath away when she gets in a good hit to my hip bone or ribs.
Random: It’s really starting to hit home how close we are to this baby being born. At my doctor’s appointment today my doctor started talking to me about signs of labor and when I need to go to the hospital and how I may start dilating soon and it just hit me that this was reality and that our baby girl is due EXACTLY one month from today!!
Looking forward to: My baby shower this Saturday!! It’s going to be so much fun. Also, next Monday we have an ultra sound where they will be able to estimate how big baby will be at birth!
