35 Week Update!

Lookin' a lil tired and rundown after a day of wedding festivities and driving the drunk ppl home!
How far along? 35 weeks - 35 Days to go!!! (Though I'm more counting the 14 more days of work!)

How big is baby?  5.25 pounds/18 inches!  About the weight of a honeydew melon.

Weight gain? ??lbs I ate a lot at the wedding this weekend, I have no idea!

Symptoms? Hip pain/discomfort towards the end of the day.  Tiredness and some finger swelling.  Other than that feeling pretty good.

Sleep?  Ok this week.  More (more) pillows!

Food cravings? Still love ice (so weird) and popsicles/freeze-pops.  Now, I like to make 'slushies' and put some juice in the fridge for a few hours!  Yum!

Movement? All over.  He is definitely rolling around in there a ton.

Gender?  It's a boy! 

Clothes?  Maternity Pants and maternity tops and some regular cardigans. 

What I am looking forward to? Still no pictures, looking forward to taking a look at those. 

What am I missing? Somedays, just the sense of feeling 'normal'.

Milestones? Your baby doesn't have much room to maneuver now that he's over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds. Because it's so snug in your womb, he isn't likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number of times he 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.

Other? Happy Mother's Day to my Mom and MIL!  My husband was sweet enough to get me a Happy Mother-to-Be's Day gift to help pack for the hospital!
