Baby #2: 35 Weeks

12.18.2013

Well, another 3 weeks has gone by since I've done a bump update! It's crazy to think that we are this close to the end. We are getting more and more excited about meeting our newest baby girl! 
I'm cheating and using a picture from our portrait session, which was actually done at 33.5 weeks. I honestly don't think the belly has grown a whole since then so this is a pretty accurate portrayal. :)

How Far Along: 35 Weeks (Which means 35 days to go!!!)

Size of baby: About 18 inches long and 5 1/4 pounds

Total Weight Gain/Loss: At my doctor's visit a week and a half ago I had lost a little, putting me at a gain of 22 pounds. Since then I feel like I might have gained a few so I'm going to guess 25 pounds total. I'll know for sure when I go back to the doctor on Friday.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, I have about 4 shirts that are still long enough. I will be a happy girl when I get to wear regular clothes again. But I'm also dreading not being able to fit into anything for a while. Those first few months are tough!

Gender: A baby girl, Adelyn Elise

Movement: She's mostly active at night and has had hiccups quite often lately.

Symptoms: I've had some of the nausea return as well as the heartburn. I've also just felt stiff, sore, and worn out! My hands and feet are swelling a little bit but nothing too bad. I've been having quite a few braxton hicks as well. I'm pretty much at the stage where I'm ready to not be pregnant anymore!

Sleep: Sleep is still good once I'm able to get comfortable.

What I miss: Being able to bend over easily or get up from the ground or even the couch without so much effort. :)

Cravings: Frozen fruit, grapes

Best Moment This Week: I had a great doctor's appointment last week. I go back at the end of this week and then I'll start weekly appointments after that. It's so hard to believe that we are already at this point! Soon we'll install the carseat, pack the hospital bags, and bring up the rest of the baby stuff from the garage. It's fun to see baby gear taking over our house again! The nursery is about 90 percent complete. I love how it's turning out and I can't wait to share pictures when it's all done! I've also been sewing and monogramming like crazy. It's SO fun to have TWO girls to make things for!

You have such a cute belly, It's so cute and round. My belly went everywhere...but I guess that's what happens when you gain 60 lbs.
