35 weeks

How far along? 35 weeks
Total weight gain:
 11 pounds (after initial loss of 4 pounds: 15 pounds)
Maternity clothes? Definitely.
Stretch marks? Barely.
Sleep: Ugh…awful. I might as well just take naps all day and all night because I can’t sleep for more than 3 hours straight. :-/
Best moment this week:
Realizing that even though the little kicks, nudges, and shifts are uncomfortable and sometimes painful, it’s a blessing. I think I may actually miss being pregnant. Never thought I’d say that.
Miss Anything? Bending over without feeling horribly huge and hurting.
Movement: A little less movement, but when he/she moves it’s a MIGHTY move. I’m startled and it’s a bit painful.
Food cravings: I’ve been loving mint chocolate chip gelato and veggie pasta. Mmm!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really.
Gender: It’s a surprise!
Labor Signs: Nope, just the occasional Braxton Hicks contractions.
Symptoms: Sciatic nerve pain is back and my back is starting to hurt more because of all this weight on my front.
Belly Button in or out? It’s flat as a pancake and occasionally sticks out.
Wedding rings on or off? On, but when I go for walks in these 80-90 degree days, my hands swell VERY badly, so rings come off.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: Our ultrasound this coming week!
