How far along/EDD: 35w2d | 11/18/12
Total Weight Gain: just got back from doctor’s this am– 33 lbs!
Stretch Marks: No stretch marks, belly button is still in (except after big meals, it flattens a bit!), no e-ring/wedding band
Names Picked: Yep and I can hardly wait to share it with you all once he arrives!
Milestones: 35 days? AHHHHHHHHHH. 35 days!
Struggles: The nausea has slowly been getting better. I’m not sure if it’s my better eating habits or if it’s baby boy moving down. I’ve carried low throughout this entire pregnancy so it’s hard for me to gauge if baby boy has “dropped.” Elsewise, it’s the usual aches and pains of disproportionate heavy top half. I’ve been getting prenatal massages pretty regularly which seem to help!
What are you most fearful/concerned about: at this point, I just need L&D to be over with. The anticipation of it in my head is driving me bonkers. I’m trying not to think about it!
What are you most excited about: MEETING OUR BABY BOY. (Don’t expect a change in this answer in the next month!) Just found out fro my OB that baby boy is engaged and cervix is thinned out ahead of my schedule. I’m not going to get my hopes up because I want baby boy to bake at least two more weeks ’til full-term. And also- it’s not a definitive sign of pre-term or early labor and I could very well carry past my due date. But, regardless both of us are anxiously excited, because for real guys– THIS SHIT IS GETTING REAL.
