Pregnancy Update: 35 Weeks

Don't judge me. Pictures were taken at 3am!!

How far along? 35 weeks (I do these a week behind as a recap of the previous week, so I'm actually 36 weeks today.)

Total weight gain/loss: +4.3 lbs which brings me to 150.1 lbs! (I had a GREAT weekend!)

Maternity clothes: Yes! I've been constantly rotating four t-shirts, two sweat pants and two jeans... My outfits are so plain!

Stretch marks? The stretch marks around my breasts seem to be fading, but I know they'll come back with a vengeance. The stretch mark on my tummy is being contained with multiple stretch mark products. Futile? Probably. But it does wonders for my mental health. ;)

Sleep: I get up 2x/night and it's not so bad.

Best moment this week: It's a tie between Cristhian's surprise babymoon in Cambridge and seeing Lamby at our ultrasound this (Monday) morning! We originally planned for a Philly getaway, then a Chicago getaway, but both fell through due to familial obligations. And our early morning ultrasound was a delight, as always! It's always such a sight to see Lamby while she's in my womb!

Worst moment of the week: At midnight on Sunday, I literally WALKED INTO THE BATHROOM DOOR. The only part of my body that hit the door was my belly, so I was wicked nervous. I watched for signs (abnormal discharge, bleeding, etc) and saw none. Baby's safety was reconfirmed by the ultrasound on Monday morning. A close second would be the issues with the Civic battery- all thanks to the ridiculous bus boy/valet!

Miss anything? Sleeping on my stomach!

Movement: Lamby's still active, but she's moving less. There's not as much room for her to flip around anymore!

Food cravings: Nuffin'!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nuffin'!

Soooo tired!!

Have you started to show yet: Ohhhh yes! It's aaaaaall belly!

Gender Prediciton: It's a girl!

Labor signs: I still get irregular contractions when I'm too active, but otherwise, labor feels weeks away!

Symptoms: From most annoying or painful to least: severe pelvic pain in my left groin, sciatica/upper and lower back pain with overactivity, swelling (over the weekend) due to lack of water and excess Sprite!, heartburn here and there, a dime-sized hemorrhoid (TMI!: which I've had since about 33w... and half of it popped today as I passed a bowel movement!) which is NOT painful or annoying, but is definitely a pregnancy issue- I've never had one before! ... and that about does it!

Belly button in or out? ... It's hard to ssy, but it's more of an innie than an outtie.

Wedding rings on or off? On! (But I was wicked scared during the babymoon. The ring was fitting pretty snug, but I'm positive that's due to poor diet and lack of water consumption. It's been just a day since I've come home and I'm no longer swelling!)

Happy or moody most of the time? I'm neutral... but I did flip the !@(* out on the manager and his petty valet/bus boy.

Looking forward to: Our Bradley Method class!
