My last shower was yesterday afternoon – so many wonderful friends were there! We had a great time, laughed and shared a lot of stories, and the gifts were fantastic and much needed!
We took some great pictures, as well – I particularly love the one of my mom, me, and the 35 week bump!
Oh, and the shower included the most amazing flourless chocolate cake I’ve ever put in my mouth. Isn’t it adorable?
How Far Along – 35 Weeks
Size of Baby – A Coconut! At the last doc visit, he also weighed in at 5.7 pounds – a big jump from just 3 weeks ago. Everything I’ve read has said that he’ll probably put on a pound more of fat, but he’s at the length he’ll be when born – thank goodness! My ribs might not be able to take anything longer.
Gender – Boy
Total Weight Gain – 10 Pounds. I jumped a few pounds in the last three weeks, as well.
What I Miss – Being able to roll over on my stomach.
Cravings – This week I was really healthy and didn’t crave too much sugar. An improvement with the Holidays getting into full swing!
Symptoms – Sleeplessness, getting full very quickly, and running out of breath quickly – my lungs just aren’t able to fill to full capacity any longer.
Maternity Clothes – I’m exclusively in leggings now, and completely fine with it!
Worst Part of Pregnancy This Week – Laying in bed at 3am, knowing I wouldn’t be falling back asleep.
Best Part of Pregnancy This Week – Having a friend come all the way from Nebraska to be a part of the baby shower festivities!
