Bump Update- 35 weeks!

Hi, friends!!! I have turned into the worst blogger ever...I know.  Growing a baby is hard work! ;)  Between keeping busy with house and nursery projects, feeling pretty bad most days and trying to rest a lot, blogging has taken a back seat lately.  I hope to keep posting at least once a week thru the end of my pregnancy and get back into it more once Connor arrives and we get into a little bit of a routine.

Moving on to my 35 week bump update...
(Bump at 34 weeks)



(Bump yesterday at 35 weeks)
 
 
How far along?  35 weeks, 1 day!  34 DAYS LEFT...holy cow!  
 
How big is baby?  About the size of a large cantaloupe...19-22 inches, 5 1/2 lbs 
 
Total weight gain/loss?  Somehow managed to lose 3 lbs in the past 2 weeks.  So, total weight gain- 11 lbs.  
 
Maternity Clothes?  Oh yes.  
 
Stretch Marks?  Still on my sides and boobs.  Boo.   
 
Sleep?   Waking up every couple of hours to use the bathroom and still having to take Tylenol PM pretty much every night.       
 
Miss anything?  I would kill for a margarita :)  This whole pregnancy I have not missed alcohol until now.  Springtime and this weather make me want to sit on a patio and drink a big ole margarita!  The thing I miss the most...not being in pain all day, every day.     
 
Movement?  All the time! I love laying on my back or side and watching him rock n roll in my belly.        
 
Food Cravings?  Ice, margaritas, mac & cheese, spaghetti, strawberries  
 
Anything making you queasy or sick?  Still red meat.  I haven't eaten a steak in 9 months and only eat hamburger meat sparingly.
 
Have you started to show yet?  Oh yeah        
 
Gender?   BOY!!! Connor Christopher
 
Labor Signs? Painful braxton hicks, intense pelvic/who-ha pain   
 
Belly Button in or out?  Almost completely flat.
 
Mood?  Super emotional the past few days but still happy and in a good mood.  I have been lucky not to have crazy, raging mood swings or too many crying bouts the past 9 months but something definitely changed the past few days.  I have cried more in the past 3 days than I have in the past year combined.     
 
Symptoms?  
Acid Reflux and heartburn, nausea, aching hands, hot flashes, restless legs, hip, tailbone and pelvic bone pain, low blood pressure.....you name it.  I am a walking pregnancy book ;)     
 
Wedding rings still on?  Still on!         
 
Best moments of the week? 
We have gotten a lot of little projects done around the house and nursery.  I am feeling much more prepared for when Connor comes!  And 3 friends gave birth to healthy babies yesterday and today!  It has been so fun going thru this pregnancy with so many people that are pregnant and due close to me and now they are all starting to go into labor.  Totally makes me jealous though :) hehe
I am almost finished with my hospital bag and Connor's too!  Daddy just needs to do his.
 
Worst moment of the week? 
I threw up in the middle of my massage yesterday morning.  That was awful and embarrassing.  I woke up yesterday feeling bad so I should have just canceled my appt but I didn't.  When the massage first started I got really hot and broke out in a sweat over my whole body.  The massage therapist noticed and immediately took the heavy blankets off me and turned a fan on my face.  Right about that time, I leaned over the edge of the table and threw up on the floor.  Ughhh.   
 
Looking forward to?
My next doc. appt on 4/22....we will have an ultrasound and my doctor will start checking me for progress!! YIPPY!! 
And looking forward to finishing some projects around the house and getting some landscaping done...hopefully all before Connor arrives!
 
Hope y'all are having a great week! xo

I can't believe you are getting so close to your due date! I know you must be SO ready for your little man to arrive. I hope you start feeling a little better!
