35 Weeks

•How far along?: 35 Weeks

•How big is baby?: Dr. says about 5 pounds!!

•Maternity clothes?: Always and I have more winter stuff so most days I'm sweating to death. 

•Movement: All the time! Hiccups everyday too. Still hoping he flips!

•Stretch marks?: Not yet...knock on wood.

•Sleep?: Its only really bad when I get heartburn.

•Symptoms?: Heartburn, less mobile, Braxton Hicks contractions! 

•Food cravings: Always thirsty. I don't crave syrup and breakfast items as much as I once did. 

•Belly button in or out?: In, but maybe not for long...

•What I miss: Being able to bend over easily. 

•What I'm looking forward to: My sonogram in a little over a week. I can't wait to see the baby and to check on whether or not he's still breech. 

•Best Moment this week: My co-workers had a baby shower/dinner for me and made the most awesome "pancake" cake (I'll post pictures soon) They spoiled me with gifts and now we have an awesome pack and play with a bassinet! 

•Milestone: Only 5 weeks to go!

•Nursery Progress: Still need to set everything up...can you believe how much of a slacker I am? A girl at church today asked me if I have been "nesting". I had to tell her the truth...not at all!! I am so tired after working on my feet all day that I never feel like coming home and cleaning. I need to start that asap!

My Breech Baby

I can't believe I only have 5 1/2 weeks left! I'm so close to meeting my little man. My 34 week checkup was on Tuesday and he is still sounding very healthy. He is also enjoying a very comfortable upright position... About 4 weeks ago they told me he was breech, but that he still had plenty of time to flip. I really wasn't concerned at that point. So when I went in on Tuesday I asked if they would check his position. Unfortunately my doctor thinks he still is. She said they really should be turned by 35 weeks or your chances of him doing so drastically go down. That is this Sunday. She ordered a sonogram for my next appointment and if he hasn't flipped by then she will schedule my c section at 39 weeks. Ahh!! Not what I was expecting. I told Todd that I've had such an easy pregnancy that something had to go wrong, right? I guess if this is my worst case scenario, its not a bad one to have. I have been very blessed through this whole process. If we are looking on the bright side at least he won't have a cone head when he comes out. And my Mom will be able to schedule exactly when to come. And Todd will have just finished finals the week before.

Well I'll update everyone after my next appointment. Breech or not, I already love this guy.
