Bumpdate: 35 weeks

35 weeks pregnantHow Far Along: 35 weeks, eek! I get my cerclage stitches out this coming Friday and that means miss McKenna could be here any time!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I am up 25 pounds now.  That feels pretty good considering I’m getting close to the end.

Maternity Clothes: I am still loving and wearing every last piece of maternity clothes that I have.  My big belly is starting to peek out the bottom of even some of the maternity shirts, yikes!  Dresses are the best because they are nice and cool and no belly peek.

Gender: She’s my sweetie little girl and I can’t wait to meet her and kiss her cheeks and smell the top of her soft head and hold her sweet hands and never let her go!

Movement: Would you believe I finally felt some Braxton Hicks contractions this week.  I’ve been wondering when they would show up, and wondering even more if I would recognize them when they did happen.  Well, after a particularly busy Saturday of shopping and not drinking as much water as I should have they were on in full force.  My whole stomach just got rock hard and stayed that way for at least a minute several times.  I almost starting wondering if they were contractions and we should be headed to labor and delivery, but they weren’t consistent and didn’t hurt a bit.  I talked to my Mom and older sister Lisa and we confirmed they were Braxton Hicks.

Sleep: Gracious, between staying up late and going to the bathroom about seven times a night this little Momma is TIRED!  I’m actually considering installing a dry erase board in the bathroom so I can make tally marks to see just how many times I get up every night.

What I miss:  Sleep (I better get used to that huh)

Cravings: I’m REALLY wanting some cool sweet juicy pineapple.  I’ve been avoiding it because it supposedly can bring on labor.  I know I am crazy believing stuff like that but better safe than sorry right?

Best Moment this week: Buying the rug and rocker for our cute nursery.  I can’t wait to get it all completely put together and finalized.
