Pregnancy | Week 35

I honestly can't believe that little one will be here in (give or take) 5 weeks. The first two trimesters drug by so slowly. However, this third has flown by! I am thankful because I have been quite uncomfortable since the start of the third trimester and I am more than ready to meet baby girl.

Size of Baby: Baby is almost 19 inches long and the size of a coconut. She weighs around 5-6 lbs. 

Gender: Sweet, sweet baby girl.

Weight Gain:  Haven't stepped on the scale this week. It's really avoidance at all the sweets and junk food I consumed wile being snowed in. Not feeling too much bigger but will check when I go back to the doctor next week.

Maternity Clothes: Surprise, that top above is not maternity! I have been wearing some of my "loose" blouses from my wardrobe to help stretch my outfits these last few weeks.

Nursery: We tried to hang some pictures this weekend only to realize that we did not have the right hooks. Hoping to finish everything this week.

Movement: Her kicks and jabs are getting quite uncomfortable. The strangest feeling is when she stretches and I can feel jabs on both sides of my stomach at the same time She is still very high and often presses up into my rib cage which has made me quite miserable.

Symptoms: Still battling swelling and sinus congestion. My heartburn, indigestion and stomach problems have come back  with a vengeance. Woof.

Sleep: I am still sleeping pretty well. I wake up 3-4 times during the night to use the restroom.

Cravings: Still loving carbs and sweets. I don't think that will be changing anytime soon.

What I Miss: Feeling like myself and moving at a normal speed. I laugh at myself all the time because it takes me twice as long to get up from the sofa, change positions in Pure Barre or walk anywhere.

Exercise: The snow put a dent in my workouts as I played it safe and did not leave the house for 3 days! I made it to 2 Pure Barre classes this week. I am having to modify the moves more and more each week.

Best Moments: Not a best moment, but I was really looking forward to a baby shower on Sunday. Unfortunately we had to cancel because the restaurant was closed. On the bright side, we decided to re-schedule for when baby gets here so all my friends are able to meet little one.
