How Far Along: 35 weeks
Total Weight Gained: 14 lbs
Sleep: I was sleeping great but now I’m back to waking up once or twice a night to potty.
Best Moment of the Week: Getting to hear TM’s heartbeat at the doc. I love that sound! Her heart rate is always random. It was 135 this time and 156 last time.
Food Cravings: This is not actually a food but I have gone to Sonic every morning for the past week for a Route 44 water.
Belly button/stretch marks: Keeping my fingers crossed and praying that I can make it without any stretch marks.
The belly button has popped and you can officially see the bottom. It’s nasty!
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks. Some intense vag pain. Leg cramps and back pain.
John Paul’s pregnancy symptoms: He has a new work schedule. I haven’t seen him this week so he’s doing great I’m sure! *Although he did mention that he “couldn’t wait for me to have this baby.” – Like that’s gonna make me less of a bitch or something.
Movement: Homegirl is officially head down and I feel her feet in my ribs all the time. You can visibly see body parts sticking out of my belly.
Gender: Girl – Turner McCartney
Milestones: 35 weeks! It’s craziness!
I went to the doc yesterday. This was my first time to be checked and I had my Group B strep test. Let’s just say – if you’re pregnant be prepared to be violated at your 35 week appointment. And I don’t mean your hoo ha. :)
I’m dilated 1 cm and I’m 70% effaced. She’s head down and apparently really low which explains the pain and pressure. Now I wish I knew what this means but honestly I wasn’t expecting to hear that and I forgot all the questions I wanted to ask. So basically I know nothing and I go back on Monday. I mean surely it’s a good thing that I’m effaced?!
