baby growing: week 35

 ^^See those bags under my eyes?? That would be from not sleeping. Someone please slip something into my water and knock me out for 12 hours.^^

week 35 // 12-31-15 

How far along? 35 weeks.

How big is baby? The size of a honeydew melon.

Total weight gain? 23 pounds.

Maternity clothes? Yes.

Sleep? It's hit or miss. I've been sleeping sitting up either in bed or on the couch, and was able to make up for some lost sleep over the long weekend! (Ben and I didn't wake up until 11am on New Years Day and it was the best thing ever.) However, this work week I haven't been sleeping.

Food cravings? It seems like all week long the only thing that's sounded good is fresh fruit. I've made quite a few smoothies this week, but unfortunately the acid gives me heartburn and I have to suffer the consequences if I give in to my cravings. ;)

Food aversions? None.

Movement? Yup. Lots of movement whenever I'm sitting or lying down.

Belly button in or out? It's flat.

Weird pregnancy things? The usual (heartburn making me throw up, no acne, super itchy skin, great fingernails, swelling everywhere, etc.) plus a really sore back! I also found my first stretch mark this week, so there's that. :) With baby getting bigger and pushing on my bladder more, I've had to use the restroom more frequently. It's comical/super annoying when I walk out of the restroom and climb into bed and realize that I need to go again.

Best moment this week? Not having to go to work on Friday and sit at my desk! Also, starting to get baby's room put together and doing a few loads of baby laundry. All the heart eyes for small clothes and blankets. 

My goal for this next week is to pack hospital bags for baby and myself!
