35 Weeks

35 Weeks is Here!! Wow!

I cant believe it, I am almost 9 months! Overall it has gone by fast but in these recent days anxiousness has set in to meet this little one.

Our house is starting to look like a home with a baby with boxes of diapers, wipes, and little socks and onsies fill it up.

I really haven't gotten a ton of clothes for the baby as we don't know what we are having. I have a few items for both a boy and a girl and then some yellow items.

I am still feeling good. The swelling that happened a few weeks ago has seemed to pass and the only thing that has changed is sleeping at night. In this past week I haven't slept more than 4 hours straight. I don't feel overly tired, or anxious I just cant sleep. Throughout the day I do get tired from time to time.

We have been advised by our midwife to not travel to far away as at my last appointment I was having some heavy Braxton Hicks contractions. Limiting our travel to 2.0 hours

No picture this week of the bump, my official photographer has been out of town all week on travel for work and as hard as I tired Wrigley just couldn't get the swing of the camera. I promise next week for a bump picture.

What's Going On With Baby This Week:
Your baby doesn't have much room to maneuver now that he/she is over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds (pick up a honeydew melon). Because it's so snug in your womb, he isn't likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number of times he kicks should remain about the same. His/Her kidneys are fully developed now, and his/her liver can process some waste products. Most of his/her basic physical development is now complete — he/she willspend the next few weeks putting on weight.
