Pregnancy Journal – 35 Weeks Pregnant

In the home stretch here….trying to get things done and remain positive! 35 weeks pregnant already…can you believe it?

Pregnancy Journal Button35 Weeks Pregnant

About Baby This Week: (from BabyCenter.com) Your baby doesn’t have much room to maneuver now that she’s over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds (about the size of a honeydew melon). Because it’s so snug in your womb, she isn’t likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number of times she kicks should remain about the same. His kidneys are fully developed now, and his liver can process some waste products. Most of his basic physical development is now complete — he’ll spend the next few weeks putting on weight.

How am I feeling? The back pain continues. The heart burn…check. Tired, check. Add to that that I am now fighting a cold and you have a preggo lady that’s not too thrilled with how she feels. Still thankful for baby girl and this pregnancy though! 😉

Food Cravings/Aversions: I am still loving dairy products like milk and ice cream. I’ve even wanted cereal a few times for dinner, which is so unlike me. lol

Sleep: As soon as I lay down to go to bed I get really bad heartburn. After I get to sleep I wake up 2-3 times to go to the bathroom. I wake up when I turn because of the back pain and hip pain. In between waking I sleep well. (hasn’t changed)

Baby’s Movement: I am still feeling her move a lot! I am loving that although it still seems to be mostly at night!

Weight: I lost a few pounds this week and am back to 3 pounds gain overall.

Next Appointment: This week is my last two week appointment. I’ll be tested for the Group B Strep and after this week I’ll go every week! Almost time for baby!!!! 😉

What happened this week? No big news here….we spent some time getting all our baby boy things ready to get rid of. We sorted through a lot of things but still have more to do! Also working on putting together the baby event coming up that Courtney and I are hosting! Can’t wait to share some baby items with you!

Something that upset me: Nothing I can think of. Oh ok…work probably. lol

Something I am looking forward to: Baby’s arrival, deciding on a name (no, we still haven’t decided for sure!) and warmer weather!

Boy or Girl? Those strong feelings I had early on about gender proved to be right!!! We’re having a girl!!!!!!!!

Things I am doing to prepare: Haven’t done much more with my hospital bag yet but as I mentioned we did start going through all kinds of baby items to get rid of the boy stuff. We also found the baby girl newborn – 6 months clothes to wash and get ready!

Countdown: I’m at 35 weeks pregnant, so 5 weeks to go if we go to 40 weeks!

Momma Joyner’s Journal: Be sure to check out Courtney’s journal at Joy of Momma Joyner! Her post is all about her 30th week!

Pregnant? What are you up to this week?
