Bébé Deux Week 35 Update

Today's date: October 29, 2013

How far along: 35 Weeks

Total weight gain: 25 pounds

Size and growth of baby: David is the size of a honeydew melon! He is around 5-1/4 pounds, and over 18 inches long. He is running out of room in there, but still moves around (minus the somersaults) His testes have probably fully descended, and he is just about done with developing as he focuses on gaining weight  {via and via}

Baby is a: boy boy boy!

Maternity clothing: All clothing, except a few XXL shirts, my sweatpants {that I only wear them at home}, and cardigans, are maternity.

Sleep: Sleep is decent for now. I've slept hard because I've been completely exhausted by bed time, but that does cut back on my middle-of-the-night potty breaks. I am at the point in pregnancy where I let gravity help me in and out of my bed. I'm sure it's hilarious to watch! I'd love a nap, but those rarely happen.

Movement: He doesn't always do big kicks, but he moves around enough to let me know he's doing ok :) Plus, he gets his kick counts easy peasy!

Cravings/Aversions: Main cravings this week were Nutella, and orange sherbet. No aversions lately.

Morning Sickness: I had two separate instances where I was miserable. I kind of remember nausea picking back up around this time with Jillian too. I took Zofran once, and I'm sure I'll have to again at some point before David arrives.

Symptoms: Obvious baby bump, major heartburn almost every day, back pain, sore nipples (all of a sudden!), stretch marks, abs feeling crampy, nesting, gas/digestive issues, movement, out of breath feeling, peeing lots, light contractions, and tired.

Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks everyday, but nothing painful.

Belly button in or out: In

How this pregnancy is different than the first: More exhaustion at this point, more weight gain, bad heartburn, inability to eat the same types of food I did with Jillian, and slightly more painful movements.

The best moment of this past week: Seeing my brother, having fun at our church's trunk or treat, and knocking out my to-do list!

What I miss: Nothing at all :)

I'm looking forward to: More fall weather, possibly taking some maternity photos in the next week or so, seeing if Jillian has another successful speech therapy and class this week, and being a month away from meeting my son!!
