So I am little behind on this but I wanted to get this up before I hit 35 weeks on Thursday. On Thanksgiving I hit 34 weeks. So weird. I think Derek and I are starting to realize this is coming faster than we anticipated. The holidays always make things go faster. Soon Christmas will be here and then BAM...our baby will be here.
How Far Along: Today I am 34 weeks 5 days
Size of the Baby: Over 4 pounds and about 18 inches long
Weight gain/loss: I knew I had gained a lot the past couple of weeks. She is just getting so big and there isn't really anything I can do that. Total weight gain: 17 pounds
Sleep: I think it's funny they ask this as part of the questionnaire The people who wrote this obviously know that sleep is bad during pregnancy. Last night was the worst I think all pregnancy. I guess that's how it has to be so that you actually want the baby out. ha
Best Moment of the Week: Delicious food on Thanksgiving. Spending lots of time with Derek and my family. Being able to relax and watch some holiday movies and Full House.
Movement: Rolling around and sticking her body parts out as far as possible. I love it. Still wish she moved more often but I understand she's running out of space these days. Love seeing her move beneath my skin. So cool.
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks. They come a lot when I've been standing or walking too long. It's an interesting feeling.
Food Cravings: Rolls. I always love a good homemade roll around this time of year.
Gender: Baby girl
Belly Button - In or Out?: I think it's almost out. Here goes nothing...
Anything making you queasy or sick?: Meat. So gross. I am hoping I like chicken and red meat again after pregnancy. I had a hard time eating the tacos we had for dinner last night.
Labor Signs: I will have to do some research on what those actually are so that I can know..but I don't think so.
Wedding ring on or off: My goal is to have it cleaned so that it will look like new when I finally get to put it on again.
What I Miss: Walking pain free. Being able to get up and down easier. My non swollen extremities.
What I am looking forward to: Continuing with our birth class so that I can feel more prepared.
Nursery: We've decided to buy a pack n' play to put her in for the first 3-5 months of her life. Now that we know what we want to get her we can actually order it. I know I need a place for her to sleep before she actually comes.
Emotions: Tired and a little crazy. Here' a good example to showcase my ridiculousness.. We don't have a full length mirror in our house so I got dressed for church in something I thought looked decent on me. Well during church I went to the restroom which has a full length mirror. I came out so mad that I looked like a balloon and Derek hadn't told me. ha He said, "I thought you looked nice." To which i responded, "We need to go home immediately I am changing my outfit. I can't wear this anymore." Oh to be irrational. This situation was just too funny not to share.
Excited to post about Thanksgiving soon and all the other fun things that are going on in our lives. Excited to hopefully get a Christmas tree this weekend. 13 days left of work in the office. 17 days till Kim and the kiddos get to Utah. 28 days till Christmas. Life is good friends. Life is good.
