Pregnancy Update - 35 Weeks


How Far Along: 35 Weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I have gained 18 pounds since being pregnant. Yes, I lost a pound! I'm thinking that since I've finally figured out how to manage the swelling/puffiness that I'm not retaining as much water. My doctor didn't seem concerned that I lost weight. Also, I will be going to the doctor every week now!

Gender: BOY! We are so excited!

Movement: I have a very active baby! I can feel him "stretching" frequently now. He's really starting to run out of room! This week he has learned how to push on my ribs, and my stomach.

Baby is Big as a: Large cantaloupe (19 to 22 inches, 6 pounds)

Sleep: It's lovely when I can get it! Little boy usually wakes me up before I want to wake... He wants mama to go eat something! I don't need my boppy maternity pillow anymore, my belly is big enough to keep me from rolling over!

What I miss: Being able to hug someone without my belly getting in the way. Also, I can't really touch my feet anymore...awkwardness.

Cravings: Still craving the red meat on the occasion and now salad. I also love anything spicy, this could be spicy as in my tongue is on fire, or a lot of cinnamon. I like cinnamon.
The biggest thing is that I just seem to be hungry all the time...

Food Aversions: None! :D

Symptoms: I'm just uncomfortable all the time! I wear out really quickly. Grocery shopping about does me in. I can't believe that I have 4-5 more weeks of this!

Can't wait to meet our baby boy in about five weeks!
