35 weeks!

  • How far along: 35 weeks and 2 days
  • Baby Is the size of a: Large Cantaloupe (19 to 22 in, 6 lbs)
  • Total weight gain/loss: 15lbs
  • The Bump: woah baby! Seriously this belly runs into everything. She's feeling super heavy too and I'm getting some stretch marks on the bottom of my belly that I can only see if I look in the mirror but really not terrible. I saw a video of a baby who was born 15 weeks early and growing baby Charlie in my belly this long makes getting stretch marks more than worth it.  
  • Symptoms: I've been having a hard time breathing. I get lightheaded sometimes and just feeling super tired. Baby must be growing.  
  • Food Cravings: pizza :) I could eat it all day everyday. but I don't :)
  • Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: nothing imp articular. just nauseous random days.  
  • Sleep: my pregnancy pillow is amazing! without it I know I wouldn't be sleeping so well.
  • What I miss: wearing my wedding ring. I tried wearing it on our date night and it fit fine when I put it on but in the middle of our date I had to take it off because my fingers started swelling :/  
  • Weddings Rings On or Off: off
  • Any Names Picked Out Yet: Charlie Janae Simpson :)
  • Gender: Girl, Girl, Girl!
  • Movement: BIG strong movements! they hurt sometimes but are still soooo fun to watch! every time my doctor checks her heartbeat she feels and sees her move its fun:) She's head down too and we can def. make out her little feet and its soooo sweet! those little feet are the kicks that hurt the most but I love that I can make them out when we feel them.  
  • Maternity Clothes: Finding clothes to wear is starting to get harder every morning. My belly has really started growing in the last few weeks and my regular shirts are just not fitting right (obviously) so I've been wearing a lot of the same clothes over and over again.
  • Labor Signs: We had a little scare last week at my 34 week check up. My blood pressure was suddenly high so my doctor told me to keep checking it and if it was high to go into labor and delivery. well it was high again the next day and so I had to go in. they checked me for preeclampsia which came out negative. but I had a little panic attack about it because I apparently cant handle anything these days. but in the end baby is fine and so am I and she's going to stay in my belly longer so her lungs can fully develop and so she can fatten up:)
  • Best Moment of the Week: Doug has been awesome. my best moment this week was when I cried about my blood pressure because she said I might have to have her early and it worried me. I felt like I wasn't able to protect Charlie and I knew being upset about it didn't help at all but Doug was definitely my rock when I needed him to be and that means the world to me.  
  • What I’m excited about/looking forward to: meeting my little lady:) I met my new nephew today and It made me soo excited to hold my little girl. only 33 days until my due date!
