35 weeks

Tomorrow will be 36 weeks :)

How far along? 35.5 weeks

Size of the baby? 18 inches long, 5 1/4 lbs. the weight of a honeydew melon

Belly button? Still in

Sleep? I'm getting up 2-4 times to go to the bathroom, and am starting to get tired of sleeping on my side. I usually find my back to be the most comfortable position, eventhough I know it isn't the best postition to sleep.

Cravings? watermelon this week, yum! They are in season in Florida and we are enjoying them a lot!

What do I miss? My summer clothes, sleeping continuously through the night

Symptoms? Braxton hicks, nesting, same old stuff. I also think she is much lower than she has been...maybe she has dropped.

Best moments of the week? My Aunt Sandi, her husband Brian and their children came to visit this weekend. It was great to see family that lives so far away! Also, we have had lots of graduation parties and picnics to attend which has been a fun start to the summer months! June is right around the corner!

34 weeks

Size of the baby? About 5lbs. the avgerage size of a cantaloupe, and 18 inches long

Belly button? Still in, but very shallow

Sleep? Some nights are fine, others I toss and turn a lot

Cravings? Water, sweet tea, peanut butter, Breyers vanilla or chocolate, ice cream, cereal...basically I'm hungry all the time but don't have a lot of space in my tummy to fit anything.
Symptoms? Braxton hicks, afternoon tiredness, and nesting is in full force. I'm feeling like there is so much to do, and no time to do it although I know I probably still have 5 more weeks. I have a lot of projects on the to do list like refinishing the dresser/changing table, sewing some burp cloths, ordering all the last needs for the baby, making a hairbow holder, find fabric for the embroidery hoops, lots of cleaning and organizing, and the list goes on.

What do I miss? Sleeping well, my summer clothes

Best moments of the week? Wow, what a great week!
-Marty graduated from seminary on Friday night. I am so proud of all his hard work!

- We reached 6 years of marriage on Sunday!

-I had my last baby shower on Sunday and was so loved by sweet friends here in Florida!

-Lastly, I had a doctor appointment on Tuesday and got to see our little girl again. During my appointment, I measured small, 31cm and should have measured 34/35 cm. Due to my size, the doctor wanted to do an ultrasound to check Junebug's growth. She is measuring right on track, and is about 5 lbs. 2oz. Her head is down low and she is growing just fine. I got to see her sweet profile again and am excited to meet her very soon.

Week 33

Size of the baby? 4 lbs. the weight of a pineapple and 17 inches

Belly button? Still in

Sleep? Getting up 1-2 times in the middle of the night. She is moving lots, and this makes it a litle harder to fall asleep. I'm alsonesting and want to get up early to get things done.

Cravings? Peanut butter, ice cream, salty things the past two days...pretzels and sweet potato fries.

What do I miss? Not much, loving pregnancy right now :)

Symptoms? Braxton hicks, increased appetite this week

Best moments of the week? Mother's day was a pretty special day to celebrate this little gift of life I've been blessed to carry for 33 weeks. Junebug/Marty surprised me with a tervis water bottle that is monogrammed. They know I have been drinking water like a camel, and that I love to do that in style :). Thanks y'all!

32 weeks (a week late)

Size of the baby? 3.75 lbs. about 16.7 inches long

Belly button? Still in

Sleep? I am having a harder time falling asleep at night, yet am sleeping well throughout the night. I am feeling the urge to get stuff done, and want to stay up later or get up earlier than nessesary.

Cravings? Starting to want sweets, lots of peanut butter these days, lots of water

Symptoms? Braxton hicks have begun, it is crazy to see your stomach tighten so much! They are not painful, yet strange to watch

What do I miss? Diet coke, it is hot here and I would love a good ole fountain soda :).

Best moments of the week? A woman from church did a maternity shoot for me on Saturday morning. I am excited to see how she captured this special time in our lives. Also, we are recieving so many sweet gifts in the mail, and it is just overwhelming to me to see how friends and family are providing for our little one right now. I think we have decided on a name, which is also fun for us to talk about her together.

* She is now 33 weeks, which I will post about soon :)
