How far along: 35 Weeks - Only 35 days to go! (But who's counting?!)
Maternity clothes: All day, everyday
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: Sleep is hit or miss, usually pretty rough. Having some pretty intense hip pain throughout the night and of course frequent trips to the bathroom
Best moment of the week: Getting a pedicure one day and then an hour and a half prenatal massage the next!
Worst moment of the week: The heat as really been getting to me - it's so damn hot here in Central Florida. I really should be living in our pool the days I'm not working
Running/Workouts: Ran a total of 14 miles this week (over 4 days). I recently accepted the fact that my pregnant running days were over, now just taking it day by day, run by run. It's a challenge every single run, but in the end, it feels great being able to stay so active this far into my pregnancy
Missing anything: Running, or walking for that matter, without the feeling of my uterus dropping right out! The pressure in my pelvis and on my bladder is like nothing I could have been prepared for
Movement: Loving every single movement, painful or not. It's almost like a secret little game only she and I can play - I can't help but smile every time I feel her wiggle. She also seems more predictable in her movements - when I drink ice water or eat I can almost guarantee she'll start moving
Cravings: Nothing new
Things that make me queasy: Just when I thought I was getting to the end of this pregnancy without much more nausea or vomiting......I thought too soon. Got really sick after dinner a few nights ago and it felt like everything since lunch had forcefully come back out. Not fun
Energy level: Nonexistant
Labor signs: Constant pressure, usual Braxton Hicks contractions, nothing new
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding ring on or off: On
Mood: Happy, exhausted
Looking forward to: Still hoping to spend some time in the pool this week - also getting Harper's nursery all put together. Her last piece of furniture was finally delivered this week! It's getting real!
Something surprising about being pregnant: Call me naive, but I truly never thought the day would come where I would be "over it"..... well I've reached that point where I'm ready for this pregnancy to be over - honestly it's not the little discomforts or aches and pains though. I am just so ready to meet this little person inside me. I'm dying to hold her in my arms and memorize her face and tell her how much she is loved. I feel like she's already got such a little personality in there, and I can't wait to see how she'll be once she arrives. It's exciting and nerve-racking and just so surreal that sometime within the next +/-35 days she will actually be here...!
