How far along? I have just finished my 35th week of pregnancy. I am so close to being full-term. Every day that passes is so bittersweet. Right now I only have 27 days until my due date! Crazy!
Total weight gain: I am gained one pound above my pre-pregnancy weight! Holla! :)
Maternity clothes: Still going strong! I found one of my favorite maternity tops that I thought I lost. I'm planning on wearing it out on our date night tonight. :)
Sleep: I’ve been sleeping pretty well lately...but I am waking up pretty early in the morning. I can just about bank on waking up at 6 AM regardless of what time I go to sleep. I don't normally have to be up until after 7, so I'm not for sure what's going on with my body! I did take an amazing nap this week--maybe I will get a few more of those in this weekend! :)
Best moment this week: I've had such a good pregnancy week! I loved having my maternity pictures taken last weekend and I also loved my last baby shower. I think I've also gotten into a mode where I know the baby is coming really soon and so I am just focusing on enjoying and appreciating all of these moments. Rob and I have also tried to get out of the house as much as possible to go on little dates or shopping trips because we know it won't be nearly as easy in just a few weeks!
Miss anything? I miss having tons of energy--which I say every week! I am also starting to miss working out/running a lot. I can't wait until that can be a part of my everyday life again.
Movement: Quite a bit of movement, but that has been replaced by lots of BH contractions. I did have one hilarious moment this week where I opened up the fridge and Little Bit starting kicking and going crazy. I'm pretty sure we'll have a little chunk on our hands. :)
Food cravings: I still can't get enough water...I also really have been wanting donuts lately. There are some GF kinds, but I just would LOVE a Krispy Kreme. I did order some online--and I should get them either over the weekend or on Monday. I'm pretty excited about that. :)
Anything making you queasy or sick? I'm still not digging peppers...meat's starting to get to me as well. I think part of it just might be that I don't have a lot of room in my stomach right now!
Gender: Not finding out--and some of my questioning about boy/girl has gone away. I'm pretty positive that Little Bit is a boy. I think part of my thinking is that we've had a girl name for forever, but the boy name has been much harder to come up with for us. That definitely makes me think we're having a boy! :)
Labor signs: I have had quite a few BH contractions this week, but nothing too unusual for me. I will be checked for progress at my baby appointment on Monday. Even though they aren't a great sign of when labor will happen, I am still excited!!
Symptoms: I would like to eat only chocolate and carbs. ;)
Belly button in or out? It's still an innie. I don't think I'm going to get the outie I have always wanted!
Wedding rings on or off? I finally had to take them off. :( After my maternity shoot on Saturday they were super tight and I knew it was time. Rob did buy me a cheap ring at Target to wear, but it's surprisingly too big. Instead I'm wearing a Pandora ring Rob bought me when we were dating. Hopefully it will carry me through the end of the pregnancy!!
Happy or moody most of the time: I am pretty happy! Sometimes when I get tired I want to throw a temper tantrum, but that's not anything pregnancy related. ;) I did get pretty upset with the etsy seller making our bedding, but that's a different story for a different day. Rob is doing a great job of getting me out of the house and I think that's helping with my crazy nesting urges. ;)
Looking forward to: I'm really looking forward to a much calmer weekend than many of the past ones! Rob and I are going on a date tonight and I've been looking forward to it for quite some time. We also have our niece's birthday party tomorrow afternoon. Other than that I plan on doing a lot of relaxing! :)
