35 Weeks!

How far along? 35 Weeks!  Only 5 to go!!!
Trimester: 3rd!
Days to Go: 35 more days!
Baby size: 18 inches! The weight of a honeydew melon!
Baby weight: 5.25 pounds!! wow!
Total weight gain:  la la la.... don't know, but I'm looking forward to getting back to normal!
Maternity clothes? um, even my maternity clothes are feeling snug and uncomfy now!
Stretch marks? yeah some.  hopefully they wont be too noticeable after she's out!
Sleep: Well, last night was not so great.  I think I was awake every hour or so, either needing to pee, or dealing with heartburn, or so hot I was sweating, even though I had the AC set on 70, the ceiling fan on AND a small fan blowing on the bed too!
Best moment this week:   Getting soo many sweet presents for Tenley! She is so loved already!!!  I don't think a day has gone by that we haven't had a present or package on the porch, or one of us hasn't brought a gift home from work!  We are so, so, so blessed!!!  Thanks to everyone who has made this time so special for us!
Miss anything? Mmmm sure a few things, but I think more than that, I'm going to miss feeling Tenley move in my belly and miss my round tummy!  I'll miss not having to worry about what my belly looks like in my clothes too! haha
Movement: Not as much as before, think she's getting a little crowded.  But still plenty! And lots of hiccups too! Love it!!!
Food cravings: SNOW CONES!!!!!!!
Anything making you queasy or sick:  Really no, just brushing my teeth still sometimes, and if the bathroom sink is dirty that makes me gag! lol.
Labor Signs: None yet!
Belly Button in or out? Still in!!!  I'm glad, but it's crazy!  Wonder if it'll pop out ever or not??? 
Wedding rings on or off?  My fake one still fits, but the bandaid i have around it is starting to make it too snug.  But w/o the bandaid it's too loose.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! For sure! But more and more exhausted too!  Which in turn, is making me a little more cranky than usual, I think!
Weekly Wisdom:  Interview pediatricians!!!  Don't just pick one randomly out of the phone book or b/c you've heard s/he's good... we've interviewed 2 so far, meeting with another one tomorrow and another one in a few weeks.   I hope we find a good fit!!!
Current Reads:  
In all my spare time! ha!!!

Looking forward to:  Our next and last shower, given by the Band kids on the 4th, followed that evening by our maternity pics!  Probably my last day at work, May 11th, and then, on the 13th, my grandma and sister arrive!!!  Happy Mother's Day to me! ;-)  And this!!!
                    Got this from my dearest friend Becca!  I can't wait to book this!!!  Sooo excited!

On the "Honey Do" list:  Ummm nothing?  Is that possible?  He's already working sooo hard writing marching band shows...  Our schedule is just soo crazy hectic alllll the time! Argh.  Seriously though, there are ONLY TWO DAYS in all of April that we didn't have some sort of obligation or appointment on the calendar!  Two days!!!  Is that normal?  Are other people that busy??? Seems nuts to me!

But I think the nursery is pretty much finished!  I still need to take the tags off of everything and wash all the blankets and clothes! But I've been waiting to do that till all our showers are over, just in case we get any duplicates or anything like that! I need to pack a "just in case" hospital bag, and I need to start gathering up all of our home birth supplies too!  I'm excited about that!

I think it's safe to say that Tenley's head will not go unadorned!  LOVE!
