Bumpdate {weeks 31-35}

Long time, no talk! I totally didn't mean to take a 3 week break from this little space, but I honestly haven't felt like blogging lately. I've been living at the doctor's office and getting things ready for this baby, so blogging has taken a back seat. I hope to post at least once a week from here on out though, as life is about to get exciting for us very soon! So I thought I'd check in with one last bump date!

Size of baby: Bunch of carrots. At my ultrasound on Monday, they estimated baby to weigh around 6 pounds, 1 ounce. 
Weight gain: +44 pounds. I don't even know how this happened. I am so huge. 
Maternity clothes: The only thing that’s comfortable is maternity dresses with shorts underneath. Even yoga pants are not that comfortable at this point.
Gender: leaning towards boy.

Movement: Yes although I feel like he/she has slowed down a little bit. Movements are more like large flips and rolls, rather than kicks and punches. 
Cravings: Same stuff, but cereal is making a comeback. 
Symptoms: Hard to change positions (sitting or laying down to standing). Peeing all of the time. Can’t stand up for very long and my back hurts if I’ve been standing for more than 5 minutes. Cannot bend over at all. Oh and my gums have been super bloody when I brush my teeth. 
Sleep: Ok, but I wake up way too often to pee, my hips hurt, and I am ready to go at like 5 AM. 
Labor signs: Just some minor contractions and cramping.
ISO: Had my last MCA scan on Monday. Baby is looking great, but they still want to induce soon. Better out than in at this point. I don’t know what I will do with all of my free time now that I don’t have to go to the MFM every week!
What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach, sushi, not worrying about things.
Best moment this week: Nesting like crazy to get ready for this baby! And seeing him/her one last time on the ultrasound screen!

Looking forward to: Meeting this baby!!!!! 


  1. 35 weeks - wow! You're so close to meeting this new baby!

  2. I am so excited! Can't wait to see if baby is a little girl or little boy! Prayers all goes well for you both during delivery!!
