Bump Day ~ 35 weeks

How far along? 35 weeks! Baby is the size of a coconut.

Weight gain/loss: Well according to my scale, thanks to the stomach virus of 2014, I lost 3 pounds, according to my Dr's scale I gained almost 4.  I'm sorry but I call BS on that.  All I did for 5 days was go to the bathroom and eat applesauce.  It will be interesting to see what their stupid scale tells me this week.

Maternity Clothes? Yes.  I don't see this changing anytime soon. Though I still get by with a handful of non maternity tops that I saved from my fat girl days.

Sleep: After this week, if I could sleep 22 hours of the day I would.  Unfortunately work got in the way, but you can bet as soon as I stumbled in the door I hit the bed and didn't leave until my alarm went off.  I am hoping I get a little energy back, I can't handle 5 more weeks of this exhaustion.

Stretch marks:  Nothing new.

Best moment this week: I'm not going to sugar coat it, there was nothing great about this week.  I'm just glad I survived.  A stomach virus is never fun, but being 8 month pregnant AND having a stomach bug?  Downright torture.

Movement: This poor kid gets hiccups all.the.time.  At least twice a day, sometimes more.  She also likes to play punch the bladder, fun times.

Food cravings: Nothing.  I have had zero interest in food and zero appetite.  Even now that the stomach bug has moved on through, most food just sounds unappetizing.  Or it gives me heartburn so I don't want to eat it anyway.

Gender: Team pink!

Labor Signs: Nope.  Not a one.

What I Miss: Feeling like a normal human being.

What I'm looking forward to:  Getting my appetite back, we have "Fakesgiving" this weekend and I want to enjoy my turkey dinner and pie!

Weekly Wisdom: When your husband claims he feels worse than you, resist the urge to punch him in the face, you might need him later to make a late night CVS run.

Milestones: 35/35!  35 weeks down, 35 days to go!

Big Brother:  Is starting to get impatient on when exactly this baby is actually going to be here.  Me too buddy, me too.
