How Far Along? 35 Weeks!! Just 5 (ish) weeks to go! It’s kinda surreal knowing that lil Baby H will be here in such a short time. I’m 2 weeks from full term and will be happy with him coming anytime after that. My mom told me I was born on my exact due date. I kinda hope he is as well. 6/4/12.
Symptoms: Backaches, Heartburn like crazy, Insane emotions, wicked lethargic, short of breath
Total Weight Gain: 27 lbs so far!
Maternity Clothes: Sooo I have officially outgrown one of my maternity T shirts!!!
Stretch Marks: Not yet, fingers crossed that they never come, those evil lil buggars.
Sleep: It’s not good at night, but I am able to nap during the day now so I get a little extra.
Food Cravings: mango flavored anything, ice cream and chex mix. Can I tell you that I get heartburn from EVERYTHING….i mean…water gives me heartburn. It’s SO ANNOYING
Best Moment This Week: Taking maternity shots with John yesterday was the best. It was quite loveydovey. And even though he’s not a photoshoot kinda guy, John was really into it. I really enjoyed taking the photos and having it be so celebratory of the little life we created and are anxiously awaiting.
Movement: He’s moving less than before. I’m lightweight worried about it. (someone please tell me it’s normal)
Labor Signs: Cramping
Belly Button In Or Out? Out, and sometimes it’s firm and sometimes it’s mashable…so weird.
What I Miss: I miss sleeping through the night, a life without heartburn, stable emotions.
What I Am Looking Forward To: Today’s doctor appointment and chat with the doc, Skyping with Embry. Also looking forward to making more art for his room and getting it all together.
Milestones: Dunno if I hit any milestones…
Weekly Wisdom: If you aren’t cataloging your pregnancy with weekly or monthly photos, definitely do a maternity shoot. It can be kinda magical.
Thoughts: I can’t wait to meet my little man!!
Any advice for me at this stage in pregnancy?
