Survey says: 35 weeks preggers

Thursday, December 12, 2013

Bye Bye 35, hellooooo 36 weeks!  This girl is getting pretty freaking excited!  I am officially "ready" to have this baby!  Sure, I would love him to bake until his due date but lets be body is telling me "get him out!"

A few people at work this week have noticed a little drop in my belly but what have I noticed??  Oh just the official insomnia, extreme bladder pressure, and menstrual like cramps that have been on and off for days.  I can tell he is lower, especially when I am walking around as it feels like he is about to pop out!  I go back to the doc for my weekly visits now, starting Tuesday, and I can't wait to see if I have dilated at all or effaced.  Based on the cramping, I hope so.

This weekend kicks off the work/friends XMAS parties and a little XMAS shopping.  We have done ZERO shopping for family so this is the only weekend to do it because lets be real, there is only 1 more weekend after this for XMAS shopping and I don't want to fight those crowds.  Russ and I aren't doing any exchanges as we gifted ourselves with a nice "mom" camera for XMAS and a push present.  So at least we don't have to pick up a lot of items.  Just some for the parental units.

Have a great weekend everyone! 

XOXOX, Sherri

How far along?: 35 weeks and 6 days

Total weight gain/loss: So relieved to see only a 1 lb gain.  It’s about time.

Maternity clothes?: All the time.  Maternity leggings are heaven.

Sleep: What is sleep?  Haven’t heard of it….  Yep, I have officially hit the “I am uncomfortable 120% of the time” and can’t get quality sleep to save my life.  Gone are the days of good ole sleep.  I guess I won’t rekindle that relationship like EVER again.

Best moment of the week: A few people noticing I have dropped some!  Yay!  Progression is a good sign. 
This was taken last weekend.  I have
dropped a little since then.

Movement: TONS.  He is absolutely crazy in there. 

Food Cravings: Still Milk.  Can’t stop. Won’t stop.

Gender:  Boy!

Belly Button: Half flat/half out. 

Stretchmarks?:  On my chest…. Getting prepared for the feedings.

What I miss:  Sleep.

What I am looking forward to: Having him!  As much as I have, overall, had an easy pregnancy, I am starting to get signs that things are progressing towards delivery.  With him dropping some and lots of menstrual like cramps on and off every day for a week now, I can’t wait to see if I have dilated on my next appt on the 17th

Weekly Wisdom: Ryan is now the size of a coconut and he is fattening up to make his grand debut.

Milestones:  Now in the 4 week countdown and Russell has officially stopped traveling until Ryan arrives.  Yay for having my hubby around as we hunker down and wait.

Workouts:  No longer have the stamina to make it past 30 minutes on the treadmill before cramps start kicking in.  Sign my body needs more rest to prepare for meeting my little man.
