35 Weeks

Munchkin is the size of a Coconut!
35 weeks ~ 9th month ~ 3rd trimester

Weight gain: The last week has been a little crazy so I haven’t been as careful or as good I should be. As of now, I am up about 23ish pounds but still moving around really well and little swelling.
Sleep: Good nights and bad nights. The last few I have woken up around 4 and gone into the nursery to sleep on the recliner. It’s nice to lay out in the bed but the recliner really helps supports me in the right areas. Plus we have the small TV and Roku set up so I can watch something when I can’t fall back asleep.
Miss anything?: Being able to clean up Parker’s playroom throughout the day and evening. It’s been a disaster for days and finally took the time tonight to clean everything up. I was having crazy braxton hicks contractions before I was even done. I like things cleaned up at night and it’s really been hard to let that kind of thing go because then I don’t feel settled when I go to bed. Part of the problem is all the toys Parker has that involve multiple pieces. That however is a story for another day.
Movement: She likes moving around the most when I get into bed in the evening. Iv’e been feeling really intense Braxton Hicks lately which I now know I never had with Parker.
Cravings: Sugar… I think my recent change in diet is finally getting to me. Luckily it seems foods like jelly and syrup are what mess with my sugar levels so I have been able to have small amounts of icecream for my evening snack. I miss soda though… That will be my #1 request along with a bologna and cheese sandwich once baby girl arrives.
What I am looking forward to: We are having a bunch of visitors throughout the weekend which is going to be a blast. Rob’s parents are bringing the lockers that his Dad has been refinishing for us for Parker’s room. My friend Jen is bringing her prefold and cover stash so baby girl can be in cloth right away. My Sister is coming so it will be fun to have a little one on one time. Some of my Mommy friends are also throwing baby girl and I a Sprinkle
