How far along? 35 weeks.
Total weight gain: 23lbs. After weeks of not gaining, I've finally gained another 2lbs.
Maternity clothes? Nope. I'm refusing to buy anything new now. Although my tops are at belly baring stage. Eeek!
Stretch marks? Yup! My two on my stomach have increased to three and are getting bigger. They really aren't bothering me though and I'm weirdly getting excited when ever I find a new one.
Best moment this week: Being 100% sure that we felt both his knee and shoulder. He's finally big enough for us to be able to tell body parts poking out, rather than just random bits of baby.
Miss anything? Proper sleep. Even when I'm at my comfiest, I'm not sleeping properly due to some crazy dreams. I wouldn't mind the waking up for toilet trips if the sleep I was actually getting was beneficial.
Movement: Yup! He loves to knee me in the ribs!
Food cravings: Not really. I just don't really want anything that takes effort. Anything quick and easy goes at the minute.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Just the usual cat or dog poop.
Labor signs: Nope.
Symptoms: Tiredness, aches and pains and intense heartburn!
Belly button in or out? It's pretty much out all of the time now.
Engagement ring on or off? Off.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy when I feel rested, otherwise I'm an arse.Looking forward to: Monday's midwife appointment. I'm really looking forward to finding out if and how much more he's dropped in the past two weeks. It sure feels like he's living low now.
