35 Weeks

5.16.2013


Another week down, 5 weeks to go! I can't believe how fast time is flying these days. The beginning of this pregnancy was ULTRA slow, but that is no longer the case. She's going be be here before we know it!

I've been really tired lately, and have just been letting myself sleep a lot, which has really helped. I don't sleep very well at night, but do sleep great in the morning. So lately I've been getting up with Jordan in the morning, and then after he leaves for work going back to bed for a few more hours. I think one of the reasons I've been so tired is because I've been unpacking, and trying to get us settled, which might be a bit much for me these days.

I'm now at weekly doctor's appointments. I had one yesterday. I was checked for Group B Strep, and will find out the results next week. The doctor also checked my cervix, to see if I was progressing at all and to see if the baby is head down. He told me that I'm already dilated to a 1.5 and that I'm 75% effaced. He also said that she is very much head down, in fact she's very far down. He asked me if I often feel a lot of pressure to which the answer is definitely yes. Because I'm already dilated a bit, I asked if that meant that she'd come a little bit early, but he said most likely not. He said I could be where I am now for weeks. It just depends.

My ankles still aren't swollen, but my feet are a little bit. My belly button is still very out, as you can see in the picture (and the last 4 pictures as well...). I'm pretty sure I'm a waddler now, but like I said, there is definitely a lot of pressure happening, so you can't exactly blame me.

I'm a little bit sad because even my maternity jeans don't fit me very well anymore... :( but I think I'm going to blame that on the fact that she's sitting so low (in one of my pregnancy books it said that your clothes would start fitting differently near the end, as the baby moved downward, I'm not just justifying myself here...these are some true facts). It's skirts and dresses or my yoga pants these days, which is definitely ok, because it has been BLAZING hot. SO HOT. ALL. THE. TIME. I'm so happy that I don't have to be pregnant through the entire summer. I'm not sure I would survive.

We still have a few things to do before I'm ready for her to come. I would like to buy a crib and some kind of a dresser (kind of saving the big stuff for last, oops). I have organized and re-organized all of the cute baby clothes we have, and I'm ready to put it somewhere.

Anyway, that's enough updating for today. I'm a bit bored with my pregnancy photos (because I feel like that's all I post about these days), but I just don't have anything else to post right now. Looking forward to the day when my blog will get taken over with photos of a new little someone. Until then...5 more weeks :)
