Baby size: 18 + inches. And she weighs 5.25 pounds. About the size of a honeydew melon.
Movement: Frequently. Especially at night. She's starting to run out of room in there!
Feeling: Really tired this week. And there's been a bit more coughing. Unfortunately, Brian is also under the weather with a cough/cold thing too.
What I miss: Sleeping comfortably. The past few nights have been EXTREMELY UNCOMFORTABLE! Which means I'm getting very little sleep :(
What I am looking forward to: Baby shower on Saturday!
Milestone: We hit 35/35 this week! 35 weeks down, 35 days to go! And I started buying some nursing tops and tank tops for after the birth. Can't believe it's coming up so soon!
To Do: Well, after the baby shower, mom and I will probably go to Babies R Us and pick up anything else we still need!
Food Cravings: I learned how to make baked eggs this week: put in one small oven-safe custard bowl one egg + a little cream + seasonings and cheese. Stick in a hot water bath and cook at 350 for 15 minutes. Take out of oven, let sit in bath 5 more minutes to finish cooking. Eat. It makes the white nice and firm and mostly cooks the yolks. Very tasty. I'm also loving Greek yogurt with fruit and honey.
Bonus: Saw the midwife AND the OB this week. Everything looks pretty good. However, I do need to cut back on complex carbohydrates and sugar. No worry about gestational diabetes, but we don't want this baby to grow TOO big (she's right on track now)!
|35 Weeks, 5 Days. Ignore my wonky hair. I don't know what's going on there...|
