She’s still in the 17.2- to 18.7-inch and 4.2- to 5.8-pound range and continues to beef up. She’s getting closer and closer to being able to breathe on her own. Her skin is getting smooth and soft and her gums are rigid. Her liver and kidneys are in working order. Circulation and immune systems are basically good to go, too.
How Far Along: 35 Weeks
Days Left: 28
Due Date: March 13th, 2013
Boy or girl: Baby Girl <3
Currently craving: Ice Cream. Salad. Not together.
Currently Avoiding: Still not very interested in meat just chicken/poultry if anything at all.
Weight: Don’t ask, don’t tell.
Belly button status: In!
Sleep grade: It’s taking me a little longer to fall asleep and I’ve been waking up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom which is weird for me. I never really did that with my last two pregnancies. I could usually hold it until I was up for the day!
Recent Crazy Dream: ugh. My anxiety is killing me. I had a dream that I was at the birth center and I gave birth to a baby that was about 10 weeks? but the baby was alive and breathing and we were confidant that she would be okay. Then I felt the urge to push so I ended the baby to my midwife and pushed and a sac came out. We cut it open and there was another baby but this one had died and I was so sad that I was having twins but only one was alive. And then I looked up at my midwife and she told me that baby was dead too.
So yea. My mind is messing with me big time and I don’t like it at all.
Evidence of pregnancy brain: Nothing I can remember this week!
Symptoms?: Heartburn is still here but not as bad this week. I’m feeling full way quicker than usual and a little more uncomfortable come night time!
Health/Appointments: I had a Chiropractor appointment today and an OB appointment. It was my LAST OB appointment as well as my last shot of progesterone. YAY to that. Look for a post soon about why I’m leaving my OB at 36 weeks pregnant.
Movement: Baby girl is going crazy as I write this and has been for the last hour. She’s moving all over the place. I’m a little nervous because I distinctly remember Mason and Elena being like that right before they engaged and then I went into labor within 24 hours. I have everything crossed that is not the case right now!
Names: Still have a top three but a middle name isn’t coming as easily!
Any baby related purchases?: We got our Maxi Cosi Prezi in the mail which is great! I can’t wait to try it out, a review *will* be coming soon! I also purchased some newborn and size 1 disposable diapers as back up/before the cord falls off.
