Even as I sit here 35 weeks pregnant, I still can't beleive we are going to have a baby. On one hand it seems as if time has flown by, but on the other hand it feels as if time is standing still. I think I am just getting so anxious to meet this little one that it feels like the day will never get here.

Mr. P is gone for training. He will be gone for three more weeks. At this point I feel like all I'm doing is waiting. Waiting for our little one, and waiting for Mr. P to get back!!

Here is my weekly update that I started so late in my pregnancy:

  • How far along? 35w3d
  • Total weight gain: 32lbs. That I know of. I didn't have an appointment this week so I'm just using number from last week.
  • Maternity clothes?  yep, although I have decided to squeeze into a dress I bought from Talbots Womens that is not maternity. I will likely try to wear it one more time since I am quickly running out of clothes to wear.
  • Stretch marks? None new that I have noticed. I can honestly say that I'm not exactly happy with the amount of strech marcks that I have. I have likely gotten more since last week, but I honestly can't look at them anymore.
  • Sleep: I think I'm really lucky in regards to sleep. I really don't have any issues when it comes to sleep. I do get up about 4 times a night to pee, but I usually fall right back to sleep. I think I'm going to be in complete shock when the baby comes.
  • Best moment this week:  My boss approved the first part of my leave, and she approved my request to start working from home again starting tomorrow. This will dramatically help me when it comes to my lack of clothes that fit my current figure.
  • Miss Anything? My husband. Mr. P is gone for six more weeks and I really miss him
  • Movement: So much. Everthing I'm reading is saying that I will feel less movement the further along I get, but I really feel like I'm feeling this little guy more and more.
  • Food cravings: I don't really belive in cravings, but I have eaten egg rolls the past three days.
  • Food aversions: I wish!!
  • Gender: Hopefully he is still a boy.
  • Labor Signs: Nope.
  • Symptoms: Back pain, gas, and horrible heartburn!!
  • Belly Button in or out? Still kinda flat, but it's starting to stick out more.
  • Wedding rings on or off? On one minute, off the next. I had a lot of swelling last week in both my feet and my hands so I'm not sure if that was just a one time thing, or if I will soon not be able to wear my rings.
  • Looking forward to: My appointment this week. I have my last ultrasound this week and my first internal exam. While I'm not looking forward to an internal exam, I am curious to see if I'm making any changes down there.
 Oh, that last question made me think. I don't think that I look that big, but I am really getting sick of the looks and comments that I am getting from some people. I have decided that when people say to you "when are you due" it is really code for "Wow, your big"! I am also getting sick of people telling me that I'm going to go early. In fact, the latter of those two comments really crack me up. Why am I paying so much to go see an OB/Gyn doc if I could just ask people when they I was going to give birth based on how I look?

Its Been A While

It's been a while, I know. I have no excuse other than I have been so terrified this entire pregnancy that I must have found a way to convince myself that posting would bring me back luck. Silly I know. Especially considering that I've been bleeding off and on throughout my entire pregnancy so I don't think posting would have made a difference.

 I found this on another blog I read and I've decided to try to update my weekly information for the last 6 weeks! OMG I can't believe we only have 6 weeks to go!!

  • How far along? 34w1d
  • Total weight gain: 32lbs
  • Maternity clothes?  Yes, I have been in maternity pants since I was 8 weeks pregnant
  • Stretch marks? Yes, all over my hips
  • Sleep: Like a baby
  • Best moment this week:  Going to see the Lion King Broadway Show with my sister
  • Miss Anything? Not really
  • Movement: Tons, everyone said after 32 weeks I wouldn't be able to feel it as much, but I feel like I feel it stronger than ever now. I think he's going to be pretty long since I can feel him at both the top and bottom of my uterus at the same time
  • Food cravings: I don't believe in cravings
  • Food aversions: Nope
  • Gender: Boy
  • Labor Signs: Nope
  • Symptoms: Back pain, gas, itchy belly & huge boobs,  and I'm so tired
  • Belly Button in or out? In
  • Wedding rings on or off? On.
  • Looking forward to: My co-workers are throwing me a baby shower tomorrow
