34-35 Week Updates

How far along? 34-35 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: About 30 - give or take a few for fluid. I've started retaining some per my OB so I've kind of stopped paying much attention to my weight since they monitor it.

Maternity clothes?  Yes - on weekdays that I have high-risk appointments, I wear maternity jeans and sweaters. On days that I am just home on bed-rest, my uniform consists of non-maternity yoga pants and baggy maternity shirts.
Stretch marks? Still no - trying not to scratch, and to keep my skin hydrated!

Symptoms: Lots of pressure. He is sitting extremely low these days. Lots of nighttime wake-ups/insomnia, contractions and cramps.


Sleep:  Few and far between. I may as well have a baby to feed and change and cuddle if I'm going to be awake this often! ;)

Best moment this week:  Every bit of good news we got about Camden - good fluid levels, good practice breathing, good size, good heart accelerations, etc.

Worst moment this week: Finding out my protein levels are steadily increasing. If they continue on this pattern next week, I will have to be hospitalized and monitored more closely. Every week I get to keep him growing on the inside is a blessing, and I'm trying to focus more on that than my anxieties and fears.

Have you told family and friends: Yes.

Miss Anything? Freedom. Being able to run to Target, take walks, walk around without being exhausted, not having to weigh myself, take my BP, get bloodwork, and go to doctor's appointments so frequently.

Movement: Yes! I love that he is so responsive to my touch and voice now. When I laugh, he rolls his whole body around. He let Tyler see his alien movements of rolling his knees and bottom around my whole stomach this week. I think I enjoyed the look on his face more than even the actual movements. :)

Food cravings/aversions:  Cucumbers and baby carrots. Not sure where that came from.

Have you started to show yet:  Yes!

Gender prediction: It's a B-O-Y! Camden James

Belly Button in or out?  Continuing to pop - not all the way yet (keep cooking, Cam!)

Wedding rings on or off? Off.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy, although I do feel more emotional lately. Part gratitude, part excitement, part anxiety, part exhaustion, part hormones.

Looking forward to: Making it past 36 weeks. My goal is to cook this little turkey for at least 36 weeks.
