Week 35

How far along: 35 weeks, 5 days

Size of Baby S: 18 in, 5.25 lbs

Fruit/vegetable comparison (according to Baby Center): honeydew melon

Total weight gain: 22.5 lbs

Sleep: Good still. Usually getting up once to pee and hard to stay on my left side the whole night (my back is still pretty comfortable to lay on). I also think I fell asleep on my wrist funny because I woke up with it hurting on Thursday. :-/

Movement: Lots! Still hiccups every now and then and still a lot of movement from her backside shifting left to right, but her head has stayed down thankfully.

Unglamorous body changes: I seem to be popping a lot this week... Just in regular movements and kind of all over. I also went to the chiro and she said my middle back was a little tight, but not bad still for how far along I am. My lower back on the right side only started to hurt a bit, but Jason massaged it and it's great now. So all-in-all, I really can't complain still!

I was also noticeably swollen this morning and had a little trouble getting my rings off. I plan to increase my water intake and hope that the swelling doesn't continue!

Maternity Clothes? Yep! Although I am still rocking the non-maternity stretchy t-shirt and lululemon pants for my weekly photos. :-)

Showing: Yes!

Food cravings: Nothing in particular, but I was hungry this week! I seemed to be eating constantly!

What I miss: Working out and walking without feeling so out of shape. Jason and I went for a nice walk Sunday afternoon and I kept having braxton hicks contractions and had to stop a few times to rest. I told Jason I didn't understand why this was happening. He told me I'm 35 weeks pregnant. Thanks sweetie. But shouldn't I be able to walk to go for a walk without any of that happening?! :-/

Anything making you queasy: Nope. Have I ever answered yes to this one?!

Strange experiences: Madison's movements are definitely different. I feel like she's running out of space in there and so sometimes her kicks hurt and I feel like she's constantly all over the place! I got a sharp foot in the right side too this week that I know was a foot because I distinctly felt her leg when I reached to touch my side reactively.

Milestones: Madison is likely not doing somersaults, but still moving a lot (confirmed!). Her kidneys are developed and her liver can process some waste product. Most of her physical development is finished and the next few weeks she's concentrating on putting on weight.

Best moment this week: Having our last ultrasound! Madi cooperated better this time and actually gave us pictures of her face (and only covered her chin with her arm). We got to see her eyes flutter open and cosed and see her spine and ribs and heart beating strong and sound.

The doctor said that everything is looking good and she's doing well. Her measurements shows she's around 2.6 kg (5.72 lbs) and the doctor said to expect her to gain about another kilo (2.2 lbs) before she arrives. (Note- I know these measurements aren't super accurate or a good estimate for weight, but it was still cool!)

Looking forward to: Our hospital tour this week! We plan to finalize our birth plan and post the differences after we get that done.

We have next Friday, May 17 and Monday, May 21 off for Norwegian holidays. Jason and I are going away for the weekend as our last "single" getaway before Madison arrives!
