How far along: 35 weeks down, 35 days to go!
How big is baby: Honeydew melon, still.
Maternity clothes: For sure.
Sleep: Not great. I’ve been waking up a lot more, about 5 times a night. I’m also having a hard time sleeping past 5am. Getting a lot more tired throughout the day. I’m going to try to take more naps while Garrett is sleeping.
Best moment of the week: Getting all the baby stuff ready!!
Food cravings: Dessert and cheese.
Food aversions: None really.
Symptoms: Heartburn has calmed down a little but still there. Very tired lately, and easily frustrated.
Movement: Not a lot. She’s slowed down a lot the past couple days. Usually in the evening she’ll move around a little though.
Gender: Baby Girl!
Labor Signs: Some contractions every now and then, but I think it’s mostly when I’m dehydrated. I think she may have dropped also, but it’s hard to tell.
What I’m looking forward to: Feeling normal again. This week has been a little rough. I can’t wait to see my baby girl, either. I’m also looking forward to giving birth again, I had such a great experience last time. I know things could be totally different but I’m looking forward to it.
What I miss: Sleeping past 5am, having the energy to get things done around the house, feeling like myself again, not being so large.
Next appt: Sept 7th.
