How Far Along: 35 Weeks
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I've debated whether to share this or not. I've decided not to. Maybe I will at the end. However at this rate that's a big fat no.
Maternity Clothes: Everything about me is maternity. I even went in search for maternity underwear. If they made maternity socks I would probably need those also.
Gender: BOY!! Eli Tree
Movement: Oh yeah, baby boy moves a lot. I love watching my belly move. It is so much fun! This morning it looked and felt like he was playing the drums in there. Maybe he will take after his daddio and be a musician. Of course Luke doesn't care if he is a musician or not - as long as he plays football.
Sleep: Sleep is pretty bad. Luke asked me why and I can't pinpoint it. I just can't get comfortable. I think it's a combination of sleeping on my side combined with getting up multiple times to go to the bathroom that has made sleep so bad. It has gotten better this week so I'm very glad about that.
What I miss: Probably just good sleep
Cravings: Nothing really. I haven't had any strong cravings lately
Symptoms: The bad sleep thing, heartburn and I get worn out really easily. Very tired.
Best Moment this week: We got to hear the heartbeat this week and it was good and strong! Also, we had a teeny tiny ultrasound this week and the Dr confirmed that the baby is head down. However that was all we saw. Our dr treats ultrasounds like PURE GOLD.
And my favorite husband quote of the week:
"The only thing I haven't liked about this pregnancy is that black line down your stomach. What is that and will it go away?"
I do have a dark line on my stomach but it really isn't that dark. Luke is just a little sensitive about it. I'm not sure if it will go away or not.
Also, during the snowcation I played around and made collages of weeks during my pregnancy. It is so amazing to see how much I've grown (and how much I'm still growing).
Here I am at
14 - - - 24 - - - and 34 weeks:
I showed this to Luke and we were laughing about how big we thought I looked in my 14 week picture at the time.
I can't believe I am already 35 weeks! This pregnancy really has flown by! We still have two more shower's left and several "necessity" items to get but we are pretty ready for little Eli to be here. Most days it feels like he should already be here!
