Bump Day -- 35 Weeks

How far along? 35 weeks. People I'm having a baby NEXT month!

Weight gain/loss: 4 pounds this week. Total: 27 pounds. I've kind of stopped caring, is that a bad thing? I'm just tired of doing/eating the same thing week after week after week and having such huge fluctuations. I mean really. I stayed the same for 3 weeks and now gained 7 in two? It's just ridiculous.

Maternity Clothes? Yes, but I find great pride in still being able to wear several non-maternity items. Now I'm probably stretching them out to hell and back leaving them useless once this baby is out, but it makes me feel better right now so I'll worry about the aftermath later! I already know new bras are in my future...perhaps that will be my push present, a trip to Vicki's Secret! (If she even makes my post baby size whatever that horrid letter may be)

Sleep: Meh. Some night are good, others not so much. It's been cooler here this week, thank the lord, so that's helped a ton! And the random bouts of heartburn are less and less so there's another HUGE plus! Now if I could only figure out a comfortable position we'd be good to go.

Stretch marks: Just those same pesky ones spotted last week. I've upped my cocoa butter slatherings to twice a day in a vein attempt to stop the madness.

Best moment this week: Spending the weekend with my bestie and her little girl. Though I will admit it was a bit eye opening just how much work a baby is. Maybe this inside baby situation isn't so bad after all!

Movement: Some days I swear he never sleeps. Perhaps he's saving all his napping for after he's born. Haha. Riiiight.

Food cravings: Gummy worms. Plain. Old fashioned, not sour, gummy worms. And don't even try and offer me a bear or some other inferior gummy animal or I will give you the stink eye. Bonus points if they're in the fridge making them extra chewy and delicious.

Gender: Boy!

Labor Signs: Nope. Just occasional kicks to my cervix which are always extremely pleasant.

Belly Button in or out? No turkey timers here!

What I Miss: Not having to spot check my clothes all the time. Somewhere in the last few weeks I've become a total slob while eating. Either that or my stomach is now just so huge it's like a magnet for all things food related. Perhaps I'm the one who needs the bib!

What I'm looking forward to: Our last hoo-rah at the lake pre-baby!

Weekly Wisdom: I have two this week. First, when holding a baby that's just been fed and the mom wisely gives you a burp cloth...make sure the baby's face is actually on it or you will get a mouthful right down your cleavage....twice if you're a "quick" learner like me.
Second. Apparently a pack-n-play does not fit through your average sized door frame so when you think you're being smart by assembling it in an open room you will only be forced to take it down and completely reassemble it in it's final resting place....twice if you're "quick" leaner like me.

Milestones: 35 weeks down.....35 DAYS to go! Otherwise known as the infamous 35/35!!

And I can so relate on the spilling, it's bad enough I only have a very limited wardrobe but no lie, every time I wear something I get food on it! Yep, every single time!!

Wow, you're getting so close. And you're still crackin' me up. This is my second time around and I'm STILL getting spit up down my cleavage. Apparently, I'm a "quick" learner too :)

You’re pregnant and this is the one time it really is okay to gain weight. You’re still well within reason, so I wouldn’t worry about it ;) Enjoy these last few weeks as much as possible and James will be here soon.

The party at the lake sounds like it will be a blast!

It is probably good you had some baby time with your friend because you have already learned two important lessons ;)
