Happy Friday! It’s time to celebrate the awesome moments of the week!
What about you? What did YOU do this week?
How far along: 35 weeks. One month to go!
How big is baby: About 5 pounds and about 18-19 inches long. The “fruit and veggie” scale says “large” cantaloupe. Large, eh?
Weight gain: I’m retaining a ton of water weight right now so that’s not helping the scale, but my midwife says not to worry… so I’m trying not to. But I’ll be honest, it’s hard. So, in total I’ve gained about 40 pounds.
Sleeping: I’m a broken record. Although, I did have a better night’s sleep than normal on Wednesday. AND we slept in until 10am! (We’re trying to do things this month we won’t be able to do after baby is here.)
Food cravings: Nothing really.
Food aversions: Japanese food.
Symptoms: I’ll be honest, I’ve hit some sort of point in this pregnancy where everything is just uncomfortable now. I’m swollen, my back hurts, and baby is apparently sideways right now which is an extremely uncomfortable position for baby to be in (at least for me). BUT, I am trying to stay active and stay positive as much as I can. But, it is tough.
Miss Anything?: Sleeeeeeeeeeeep.
Doctor’s appointment: I had one on Tuesday and I’m now going every week. Next one is next Friday where I’ll get my Group B Strep test done.
Wedding Rings: Still on! They’re tight, but I can still take them on and off.
Clothes: My wardrobe has shrunk even more than it had before – and my feet and ankles are so swollen I’m really self-conscious to wear shorts or short dresses.
Movement: ALLLLLL the time.
Best moment of the week: Going to late night Waffle House with my husband. I cherish those moments.
What I’m looking forward to: Crossing the remaining things off of our registry list!
What I did / Got for baby: We had another amazing baby shower this past weekend. We also finally got a glider and a rug – so the nursery has really come together!
What I learned this week: Nothing really this week.
Prayer requests: Sleep, sleep, sleep, and comfort in these last few weeks.
