35 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 35 Weeks

Size of Baby: He weighs around 5 1/4 pounds now (the weight of a honeydew melon) and is a little over 18 inches long from head to heal.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 32 lbs total.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity clothes, and I'm even growing out of most of the maternity clothes I have! I will be so happy to wear regular clothes again.

Gender: Its a BOY!! Jackson Thomas Smith

Movement: Yes!! He is still moving a lot and it even hurts sometimes now. His movements are big and strong now and I can even sometimes see what looks like an elbow or a knee skim across my stomach. :-)

Food Cravings: Ice Cream!! :-)

What I miss: Being able to wear my wedding ring and getting a good nights sleep!! I know I should probably get used to the lack of sleep. I'm sure I'll be sleep deprived for quite a while after he's born.

Sleep: Still not sleeping great. Just can't seem to get comfortable and I am having to get up a lot to use the restroom.

Symptoms: Feeling really tired lately and just down right uncomfortable. My feet and hands are swelling now too. :-(  I also, occasionally, have a stabbing pain in my pelvis, which the Dr. said is just the pelvis widening to get ready for birth.

Best Moment this week: Getting our Maternity pictures taken and my baby shower. Also getting all his clothes washed and put away and getting his bedding put on his bed.

What I am looking forward to: A couple more showers and getting to meet baby Jackson in just 5 +/- more weeks. I can't wait to hold him and love on him. Time needs to start going by a little faster now.  ;-)

I sure hope it flies by Holly. I'm ready to meet Jackson and to feel "normal" again.
