35 Weeks!

How Far Along: 35 Weeks complete which means we have made it to the magic 36!! A huge victory!

Size of Baby as Relative to Common Household Fruit or Vegetable: Baby is the size of a honeydew melon and is about 18 inches long!

Weight Gain:  25 lbs!

Gender: Sweet little girl

Movement: More movement this week than last. It's so crazy to see so much movement from the outside. She is head down, way down according to my ultrasounds, and something-I think her leg is practically choking me when I'm sitting up. Other than that slight discomfort she's been very gentle on me. 

Sleep:  There is so much sleep going on right now it's unreal. I've never been able to take naps on a whim, but it's happening quite often. As for nighttime sleep, it wasn't that great this week as I was battling a horrible cold.

What I miss: Nothing to note this week. I was able to work a couple days and even ran a few errands!
Cravings: Chips and Dip--totally indulged at a labor day bbq with friends. 

Symptoms: Pretty much the same as last week. 
Best moment of the week: This week flew by which was probably the best part!
Worst moment of the week: I had a cold Monday through Thursday and it was miserable. I was so out of sorts and uncomfortable. 35 weeks pregnant + head cold = not desirable. 

I can hardly believe that we have made it to September and now, 36 weeks. It feels amazing and hard to believe. Now, I'm getting some jitters as she could be here so soon. While that was always a possibility, there's now a pressure to get everything "ready" and prepared. Her nursery is livable, but the finishing touches haven't been placed as I haven't been able to get to the stores I want to as I'm still moving a little slow and trying not to push things. All her clothes are organized and newborn cloth diapers are prepped and ready to go. 

Thursday is cerclage removal day. I am curious to see how it goes, how the pain is and what results from the procedure!


  1. You look amazing! I was a whale at 35 weeks. My little gal came at 38 weeks, so you never know when she'll be here! Excited for you !

  2. Such exciting news - yay for 35 weeks! She'll be here soon!!! Glad to hear you're doing so well.

  3. Yahoo! I'm so excited! Glad you are doing so well, and I hope the mean ol' cold stays away. =)

  4. Such a beautiful baby bump. Seriously so happy to see it still growing!! :)
