Pregnancy Update: 35 weeks

How Far Along: 35 Weeks

Total Weight Gain: I weighed 154 at my last visit, but I was wearing my Hunter winter boots.  So, I'm being "that" girl and saying that because of my shoes, my weight was slightly off.  BUT, I'm definitely at least 154 now.  Sigh.

Maternity Clothes:  I'm still stretching all of my clothes out as much as I can.  It seems silly to cave and buy maternity shirts NOW with only FIVE weeks left.

Stretch Marks: I don't have any.  Instead, I have something called PUPPPS (Pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy and it SUCKS.  Remember those cheetah spot looking things I said I had two weeks ago?  That was the start of it, then it starts to itch, then it spreads and it doesn't go away until after delivery.  I'm trying really, really hard not to scratch it because I don't want it to spread all over my body.  Also, I made the mistake of Google Image Searching PUPPPS and I am so traumatized.  Luckily, mine doesn't look like that...

Sleep:  I'm not sleeping great, but at least I'm sleeping.  I wake up a few times a night to switch sides because my hips hurt so bad, which I don't get.  I'm sleeping with a pillow between my legs, but it feels like my hips are like...collapsing.
Best Moment This Week:  Getting the "big" stuff in the nursery.  Piper helped us put together the crib, she's the cutest.  We also went to our labor prep class and I only almost passed out once.  Go me.

Miss Anything:  Not being in the bathroom every 20 minutes :)

Movement:  Still lots and I still can't tell what is jutting out from my belly.  I don't know if it was a coincidence or not, but the other day Adam put a song on and he started going crazy in my belly! 

Food Cravings:  Sonic's ice still. Almost every day before or after work, I get a route 44 and chow down.  I can't get enough.  I've also been super thirsty, so the ice solves two things. 

Anything Making You Queasy or Sick: Chicken..and sometimes in the morning, just being awake I feel nauseous.  If morning sickness comes back I'm going to be so mad.

Gender: Baby boy.

Labor Signs: Now that he's
bigger, it's kind of hard to tell if I'm having Braxton Hicks or if his whole body has just moved to the front of my stomach.

Belly Button In/Out: Mostly out I think. 

Wedding Rings On/Off: On, but I have noticed that I am starting to swell in my fingers a little bit.

Happy or Moody:  Still moody.  I'm so itchy all the time, it's hard not to be cranky!

Looking Forward To:  We're having our final baby shower on Saturday!  I can't wait to get the nursery finished and I feel like we can't really until we have all of his stuff, which we don't have yet!
