{35 Week Bump}

How far along?: 35 weeks! Does that seem possible?! Or does it feel like you guys are over these posts? LOL.
Total weight gain?: 21 pounds.
Size of baby?: Baby is the size of a pineapple! 18.2 inches and 5.3 pounds!
Maternity clothes?: Without one drop of exaggeration, I have worn the same two pair of pants for almost my entire pregnancy. I have two of the exact same pair of leggings from Target that I wear at home and then I have my American Eagle jeggings that I wear at work with my belly band. I did buy one maternity sweater from Target in the beginning just to be comfy. I love it and will probably continue to wear it after delivery. It's very athleisure and cute.
Stretch marks?: They're hard to see, but yes. I'm sure the next few weeks will be damaging for me.
Sleep: It's getting tougher to get comfortable which is making it hard to sleep. I absolutely cannot sleep on my back or I get terrible acid reflux, but when I'm on my side she hates to be squished on whichever side I'm laying on. 
Best moment this week: OH.MY.GOODNESS. Henry finally *really* felt baby sister this week. She had the hiccups so he got to feel her for quite some time. I placed his hand on my belly and my hand over his and he just said, "ohhh. ahhh. oooo. she's trying to get out, momma!" It was easily one of my favorite moments ever. To add to it, now he is putting his hand on my belly all the time and reaching to put mine on his. My cup runneth over. I'm going to melt to the floor when I see their sibling love.
Miss anything?: Still ready to have my body back and my energy back, aaaannnd that big glass of wine. ;) 
Movement?: It's so brutal lol. She is so painful. She's like a bull in a china cabinet. She's running out of room and it's so obvious.
Food cravings: This week it has been vanilla yogurt with granola. :-p
Anything making you queasy or sick?: I get random nausea all throughout the day, off and on. It's zero fun.
Gender: GIRL <3 <3 <3
Labor signs: I don't think she has dropped yet, or turned head down yet, but there is so much pressure down there. I have been in so much pain. 
SymptomsStill feels like I'm experiencing all of them. Peeing when I sneeze. Headaches. Cramps. Sciatica. Emotional. Heartburn. Leg cramps and so on. 
Belly button in or out?: Even? lol My belly button no longer exists. 
Happy or moody most of the time?: Happy. We're narrowing in on her arrival date. Henry is more than excited. Things are starting to fall into place. I've nested as much as I think I can for now. We need to install the car seat, but otherwise I think we're officially "ready."
