How far along? 35 weeks, 5 days
Baby Bump? Yes!
Maternity clothes? Yes.
Total weight gain: 9 lbs. Uh yeah, the weight is showing up really quickly.
Cravings: I could go for a nice large Coke, a full piece of birthday cake, and some Cheez-Its.
Symptoms: Swollen fingers and feet. I went to the doctor last week and she mentioned how good my feet looked. I walked out the door and they blew up like balloons. I think she cursed me.
Sleep: Sleep is okay. I am sleeping through the night pretty well, except for going to the bathroom. I really can't complain!
Movement: She's kind of inconsistent. I have been having nonstress tests each week and she moves much more than I can feel her move, which is a huge relief.
Gender: We are having a little girl! Emily Ann!
Belly Button in or out? In, but getting flatter every day.
What I miss: Sweets, not being tired during the day, and small feet.
Best moment this week:
Our sweet friends Rebecca, Wesley, and Eli came to town for the day on Saturday. Rebecca and I shopped and caught up while Brian, Wesley, and Eli chilled at home. It was fabulous to see them!
(I shamelessly stole this picture from her blog- thanks Peg!)
Also, Brian and I took maternity pictures last Friday night. Brian's youngest brother, who is incredibly talented, took the pictures and says we will get them on Thursday. I can't wait to see them!!!
Finally, last night we cleaned out the office and found some of my music which was lost during the great computer crash of 2011. Among the music was the Wicked soundtrack, which I had believed to be lost forever. Me and my baby-having playlist are greatly relieved!
As for the request for belly pictures, I am sad to say that I still don't have any. I am adding a picture from our Birmingham date two weeks ago.... I am about that size but a smidge larger. Look for a maternity picture post on Thursday night or Friday for more up-to-date pictures. :)
Our due date is one month from today!!!! I can't wait to meet our little girl!
