Pregnancy: Week 35

DATE: November 18, 2010

How far along: 35 weeks

Total Weight Gained: 39 pounds…..WHY I keep disclosing this information is totally beyond me, but whatever!

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

Maternity Clothes: yep! Actually just had to go buy 2 pairs of work pants yesterday b/c my other weren’t fitting :(

Sleep: could be better, could be worse. Blake is sleeping again…but I am up about every hour on the hour to go to the bathroom!

Best Moment of the Week: hmmmm….not sure, just glad to be one week closer! OH, and I got a bunch of cute bows and headbands for her to wear…I hope that she is a girly-girl like her mama!

Movement: oh yes….always! She’s a mover. The kicking is getting much more painful now. She likes to stick her feet up into my rib cage!

Food Craving: …just an unusually large appetite! Mexican….and grapefruit…

Food Aversions: none

Morning Sickness: nada

Gender: GIRL!!

(I realize that this is not the most flattering outfit...but it is getting harder and harder to dress for work, and I always take these pics prior to leaving for work!)

Symptoms: heartburn, sore hips, difficulty sleeping, LOTS of Braxton hicks contractions…not really painful, just uncomfortable.

What I miss: bending over comfortably to put on my socks and shoes!!

What I'm looking forward to: Dr. appt. next week to hear if there is any progress…and finishing up her nursery!

The first couple of months you can kind of force the bows on them! ha! Emmy's old enough now where she takes them off! But she is a girly girl with a side of rough and tough!

Girl you look fab! Don;t worry about it, I think I gained 39 or 40lbs with Nik too. It seems like a lot, but it's really not. It will come right off! I worry if women don't gain weight. It's not healthy or normal I don't hink. You look perfect-it's allwhere it should be! You go girl!

I LOVE these posts! I think next time we are pregnant, I am going to copy you if that's alright and do these posts/updates! I love them!

Can't wait to meet this little girl! Bows and headbands Yeah! Girls are expensive with all the frills. I hope we have a boy next so I can save on all that, ha!

You look so great, Annie and to be so far along, that's fabulous! It doesn't matter what you've gained you'll be tiny again in no time flat! Yes, keep stocking up on the hair accessories, GG wears then and doesn't say a word (obviously). Just hoping that when she does talk she wan't put up a fight with all the primping and fussing I do with her! Haha!
