how far along?
35 weeks! that means we only have 35 days to go!
how big is the baby?
according to Baby Center, Ronin weighs about 5.25lbs and measures about 18 inches long. his kidneys are fully developed and his liver can process some waste. his testes have most likely fully descended, too. most of his basic physical development is complete at this point, so the next few weeks will be spent plumping up.
total weight gain:
I'm guessing 24lbs.
on and off, depending on the status of my pelvis and my husband's snoring. also, I think I may have been having some contractions last night, but I'm not sure.
best moment of the week:
getting most of the stuff left on our BRU registry, making a final to-do list, and getting a much needed pedicure over the weekend.
|a mile long to-do list.|
fresh fruit - peaches, watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, etc. <---- yep, same as last week.
with the exception of Braxton Hicks contractions, I've got it all (sleeplessness, headaches, pelvic pain, swollen feet, leaky breasts, heartburn/acid reflux, carpal tunnel, constipation, etc).
and I will be adding vision changes to this as well - I've been seeing moving spots the past few days. and I think (TMI ALERT) that I may be starting to lose some of my mucous plug, not that it means anything, because some women lose it weeks before delivery and some don't notice it at all. either way, I'll be bringing up both of these issues to my OB on Thursday.
most looking forward to:
uhh, everything. the nursery is not even CLOSE to being done, so we will be spending the ENTIRE weekend doing that. my last day of work is next Wednesday (WOOHOO!), so after that, I will be quite the little nesting busy bee getting the house prepared for Ronin's arrival.
OH, and my BFF is coming home from NYC this weekend, and I can't wait to see her and her handsome hubs!
what I miss right now:
being comfortable in general. and beer. I could really go for a beer.
