35 Week Pregnancy Update

So, I had intended on doing a weekly post while pregnant and time has sure gotten away from me! I am 35 weeks (and one day!) now and cannot believe that in about a month we’ll get to meet our precious baby girl. The time has flown by during this pregnancy and it seems like I just tested yesterday. I seriously cannot believe – THIRTY FIVE weeks? Whoa.

The pregnancy itself has gone pretty well. I have had more ultrasounds this time around than I had with both of my previous pregnancies total, but everything always turned out to be ok. We are oh so grateful for that. At 35 weeks, the books say that our baby girl is about 5 pounds and 18 inches long. I am so excited to see how much she weighs and compare that to her brothers. My oldest was 8 lbs 15.5 ounces at birth. LA was 8 lbs 4.3 ounces. I have heard that each baby typically gets bigger…not the case here. Then again, my first was 6 days past his due date, LA was 8 days before so that most likely explains the weight difference. With LA I had a ton of heartburn. I tend to think that old wives tale of “if you have a lot of heartburn, baby will have a lot of hair” is true. It was with LA. This time, I have had even more heartburn…so again, can’t wait to see if that holds true for us this time. I have been extremely tired and it never seemed to get better with this pregnancy. I remember last time it got better in the second trimester. This time, it lingers on. Could be because I am chasing an 18 month old around, huh? LOL

I have one more appointment and then I go weekly. I will be excited to see if I am dilated at all when they check around 37 or 38 weeks. All of those last minute things that are exciting are starting to come to mind. And then I am quickly reminding myself that I have so many things to do before baby Addy arrives. I probably should go do something now…but, I’m tired!! LOL

  1. What a great post!

    I agree that chasing young children is why you’re tired, I know its why I am!

    My girls were both born in the 39 week and there was almost a full pound difference with my second being smaller

    Unfortunately, heartburn and hair doesn’t work for my kids but with LA having so much hair, I can’t imagine your little girl without a head full of hair herself

    Its a race to see who has their baby first and we’ll be at the finish line soon! 🙂
