Sorry for the delay, normally I have this post up on Mondays but we had an unexpected death in the family this weekend and it threw our entire weekend routine out the window. But, hey, better a day late than never, right, and as of today, I'm 35 weeks knocked up. It's been a rocky past week but, hopefully, we're on the other side of it. As I did with my first pregnancy, I'm taking photos and doing a cute week-by-week FYI session from here on out (ala Little Baby Garvin).
How far along? 35 Weeks.
Total weight gain/loss: I'm guessing around 60 pounds? Maybe.
Maternity clothes? Still living in leggings, a cami tank, and a T-shirt.
Stretch marks? Still using this cream at least twice a day and a few of my old ones seem to be getting redder but no new ones.
Sleep: DYING. The heat is making me so exhausted all the damn time.
Best moment this week: Seeing Melanie playing with her cousins and my father-in-law getting to see me pregnant (he never saw me when i was knocked up with Melanie).
Movement: So, so much. He's just a complete mover.
Food cravings: Cupcakes.
Anything making you queasy or sick: We forgot to empty the trash before we left and the smell was SO BAD.
Labor Signs: No but almost flattened out.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? Off.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Less anxiety this week. The refi is scheduled to close today and our tax refund should drop tomorrow. That takes a lot of stress off.
Looking forward to: Melanie's birthday party is on Saturday! It's an Avengers Pool Party and, while it will only be our family and the next door neighbors, should be a little bit of fun for her before the baby comes.
In other news, people kept asking me about buying stuff for the baby so I set up a little Amazon Baby Registry and the gifts are starting to arrive! My mom got us a sit-n-stand stroller! We've also gotten this shark robe (which Melanie LOVES), these muslin blankets and a swaddle, and these awesome BabyLit books (which I had to hide because Melanie LOVES her BabyLit books and doesn't understand that we're saving these for her brother).
