Bébé Week 35 Update


Today's date: November 5, 2011

How far along: 35 weeks

Total weight gain: About 14 pounds total.

Size and growth of the baby: 
Jill is now the size of a honeydew melon (about 20" long)  and weighs a little over 5 pounds! Her kidneys are fully developed and her liver can process waste products. She will be spending most of the next few weeks putting on some weight.  {per}

Sex: Baby Girl!

Maternity clothes: Only a few shirts and 1 dress are not maternity. I usually only wear non-maternity at home.

Sleep: Sleep comes easy for me. I'm tired faster than I used to be, though it's not the complete exhaustion I felt in my first trimester. I do wake up once a night to pee.

Best moment(s) of the week: Having my last baby shower today, seeing my BFF Annette, and getting more accomplished on my baby to-do list.

Movement: She wiggles several times during the day, though she's not really kicking anymore. I think she's just running out of room ;)

Food cravings/aversions: No major aversions, aside from no desire to be near seafood. My main craving is Trix and Fruity Pebble cereal, but I haven't given in just yet.

Morning sickness: I have to take Zofran once a day to keep food down. I may get a little queasy throughout the day, but it's nowhere near where it was in the first trimester.

Symptoms: Obvious baby bump, peeing constantly, lots of stretch marks, lower abdomen pressure, baby kicks, some pelvic pain, heartburn/acid, light Braxton Hicks, a little queasiness, and gassy.

Labor signs: I'll feel some Braxton Hicks from time to time, but nothing major and no cramping.

Belly button in or out: In, but we'll see how long that lasts.

What I miss: Not a whole heck of a lot :)

What I'm looking forward to: My parents coming for Thanksgiving, my final work day (November 11th!), and my baby coming into the world!

Weeks 15, 25, and 35!

I couldn't do my Day 3 picture for the photo challenge because we didn't have a single cloud in the sky the past two days! Also, the photos were taken with Phil's phone because my camera's battery died, (just my luck). So here's my make-up for it:

Day 3: Clouds

Day 4: Something Green

Day 5: From A High Angle

We woke up this morning to a 4.7 earthquake. The epicenter was closer to OKC than Tulsa, but we still felt it. In fact, as I was typing this up, we had another aftershock that knocked over a photo at the in-laws'. I feel like I'm in California! {Just overheard that the aftershock was a 5.2. Geez!} I don't know about earthquakes, but I may still prefer them to tornadoes personally. 

Today was not only my last baby shower, but it was also my brother's birthday! I only got to see him for a little bit, but I was able to give him his gift and a funny card :) I really love my big bro!

Hope everyone had a great Saturday!

  1. Can I just tell you how great you look? Seriously. You are all baby belly, and look awesome for 35 weeks! Here's to hoping you can find comfort! Those last few weeks are the ONLY thing I don't miss about being pregnant! ;) Hang in there, girl.
