{Baby Schartz: 35 Weeks}

How far along?: 35 weeks 

Total weight gain?: 16 lbs.
Size of baby?: Baby Schartz is the size of a Coconut!
Maternity clothes?: No, still in leggings and maxi skirts. Again, I don't have to wear slacks or jeans ever, if I don't choose to. If I did, I'd definitely be looking for maternity pants. My leggings fit perfectly though.
Stretch Marks?: I have gained several pounds in the last few weeks and the belly sure is itchy, but none thus far. 
Sleep?: I have been sleeping so well that I haven't even had to get up to pee until about 7am. Holla!
Best moment this week: Meeting with a potential pediatrician. She's no longer a potential though, we really enjoyed her. It was a relief to get that settled. She was pleasant and we enjoyed the facility and it's close to home. 
Miss Anything?: I miss not being swollen. I am HUGE! My ankles and feet are absolutely ridic. I look like that Aunt Marge that Harry Potter blows up like a balloon. Ha. 
Movement?: Ohhhh yes! Sometimes they're sweet and sometimes they're terribly painful. Little booger. 
Food cravings: Noooo, it's probably a really good thing though! I'd be even more swollen. 
Anything making you queasy or sick?: Not this week :-D
Gender: BOY! 
Labor signs: I actually thought I had been having Braxton hicks for several weeks now, but I definitely wasn't. I think I had my first contractions yesterday. Just the warning kind, not like actual labor contractions. 
Symptoms: Swelling, as I mentioned. Numbness in my arms and legs, hip pain like whoa and nesting. 
Belly button in or out?: In...I don't know how much longer it will be in. 
Wedding rings on or off?: I'm to a point where I'm nervous to wear it. I'm afraid I'll get to a point where it'll have to be cut off. So I only wear it for special occasions. 
Happy or moody most of the time?: Happy. I've had a little boost of energy here lately. I've been getting this house in order for guests that we may have in the next few weeks. I'm soaking up these last few weeks being pregnant and being with my husband. :)
Looking forward to: My birthday. It's next weekend. O. M. G. It will be my last birthday not being a mom. I'll be 26 too, officially closer to 30. Womp womp.
