35 Week Baby Update

Monday, January 13, 2014

It was so bright outside I couldn't keep my eyes opens haha!
How far along? 35 weeks
Total weight gain: 20 pounds
Maternity clothes? This week I have worn stretchy jeans, Chanse's sweats, leggings, maternity shirts, and maternity dresses
Stretch marks? Not yet… still looking though
Sleep: What is the sleep you speak of?! hehe JK... kind of… I am doing the best I can :)
Best moment this week: Seeing our baby girl on the ultrasound! 
Miss anything? At the moment no… I feel like all of this is so worth it! It may sound cheesy, but I just feel so very blessed right now to have a healthy baby girl growing inside of me :)
Movement: She likes to kick my ribs and she has been getting the hick ups a lot (at first I didn't know what it was ha). She also likes to poke her little bum out against my stomach and push ha! 
Food cravings: bread, bananas, salads, bubble gum (still ha!)
Anything making you queasy or sick: I have been getting light headed a lot when I stand for too long in a certain position or if I am laying on my back. I also get really nauseous sometimes when I am standing a certain way too. I think baby girl might be pushing on some organs or something haha
Gender: Girl 
Labor signs: No 
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks contractions are pretty much constant, but super irregular. Also light headed and nauseous like I said earlier. The doctor said that this was normal, but just to be careful of how I position myself :)
Belly button in or out? Still somewhat in. Like half of it pokes out haha. It's weird.
Wedding rings on or off? On, but my hands are definitely swollen and chunkier haha
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, but also super emotional. I cry at EVERYTHING haha. It is so silly!
Looking forward to: Maternity pics with my sis and meeting our sweet baby girl :)

 Yes I am aware that I look like a zombie haha ;)

This week at my doctor's appointment I had an ultrasound. My stomach was measuring just a bit small, so my doctor wanted to make sure that our sweet baby girl was growing like she should. Thankfully we found out that she is growing great! She is going to be a smaller baby, but she is within the normal range. We are thrilled, and it was so fun to see her on the ultrasound again :)
Yay! She has hair! I wonder if it is brown or blonde? Chanse and I were both born with brown hair so I guess we will see :)

 Her little foot! It is 3 inches long! She is going to have big feet hehe
