Baby Update: 35 weeks

How far along: 35 weeks. 5 weeks to go!

Baby Size: A Large Cantaloup (hopefully not one with the bacteria...anyone?!) 22 inches and 6 pounds. Give or take a few inches or pounds...

Weight Gain: Yeah...I'm going with 42 pounds. That's so horrible to me when I say it or type it but what am I gonna do? Hopefully shed it all post-pregnancy with breastfeeding and getting back on track with an exercise routine.

Maternity Clothes: Still wearing lots of dresses. A lot of my shirts are no longer fitting because apparently I am carrying a bowling ball. Or a watermelon. Or twins as some people like to ask me.

Sleep: I'm sleeping fine but still having to get up constantly to go to the restroom. The hubby says I have been snoring a lot. I wouldn't know though.

Best Moments: When Leo gives my belly a kiss or he says something sweet about the baby. Plus just knowing in a few short weeks we will have a new little one in the house!

Movements: Dude is moving a lot still. Plus having the super-awesome fake contractions.

Cravings: The only craving I've had lately and it was a one-time thing, was when we went to a bbq place here in town and the hot links sounded so good. And so I got some. And they were delicious!

Looking forward to: My appointment on Thursday. As creepy as this sounds I get checked on Thursday so I'll know if I'm dilated or effaced or any of that nonsense. But it will be nice to know!

Symptoms: No symptoms as of late. So that is awesome!

And last but not least stretch marks: The same as before. Haven't noticed any new ones. Thankfully!
