35 weeks down and 35 days to go!!!
How far along: 35w
How big is Baby: Baby weighs approximately 5 1/2 - 6 lbs.
Maternity Clothes: Definitely. I think I have enough to get me to the end of the pregnancy. Fingers crossed.
Sleep: Sleep is okay. I wake up at least three times every night to turn and/or pee.
Movement: Oh yes! He was super active at my NST on Friday. This is just a short clip, but he was going on and on and on. The nurse was cracking up.

Food cravings: Anything sweet.
Food aversions: Everything except sweets :)
Gender: It's a BOY!
Symptoms: Contractions. Extremely itchy stretch marks. Sore pelvis. Swollen ankles and feet. Backaches. Exhaustion. Peeing every five two minutes. 
Nursery Progress: I ordered the custom crib bedding - my big splurge. It takes about four weeks to finish, so it may arrive after he does.
Best moment this week: Relaxing at the water park on Saturday:

What I am looking forward to: Laying in our new blow up pool until he arrives :) 

One of my favorite things about pregnancy is the way other people treat you. I have had so many strangers ask how far along I am, if it's a boy or girl, if it's our first, if we have a name yet, telling me how amazing it is, etc. I've also had people insist on me cutting in front of them in a line - at the store and for the bathroom. It's really been incredible how sweet people have been. It's definitely one thing that I will miss.

Everything continues to go well at my NST's. This Friday I begin my weekly OB appointments. The hospital bag is partially packed {I need to buy a few things}, his room is very close to being finished, and the car seat is going in this week. I am so thrilled to be in this home stretch. The thought of holding our baby boy for the first time is so exciting  :)


  1. You are seriously GORGEOUS! :) He is almost here! I can't wait! :)

  2. What a cool swim suit! I can't believe you are here already! I can't wait to see him!

  3. You are one cute pregnant lady. I love how people treat pregnant women. Wish they treated women that way all the time! LOL

  4. You look great! Looking in that backseat and seeing that carseat is sure to make things feel real!

  5. Awww I remember those days! Enjoy them =) You look absolutely fabulous by the way!!

  6. What a great picture! You look amazing! Congrats on reaching the home stretch. It seems like yesterday we were following your trips to the doctor for IUI. So happy for you :)

  7. Aww, your little video makes me miss being pregnant. I remember my little girl being all bouncy like that. She's still bouncy like that, only now she's harder to hold on to. ;) You look great and I'm glad to hear that things are going well and that you are sooo close!! :)
