Needless to say, Steve was very excited about his tickets and I was so excited to give them!
Now for the baby update...
35 weeks pregnant and holy emotions. I have been crying over everything in the last week. I know it's pregnancy related and we even talked about how it is normal to be overly emotional in the last month of pregnancy at our child birth class, but the tears just come out of nowhere! The tears and the....moodiness. Poor Steve. One minute I'm laughing, the next I'm crying and then out of nowhere I've turned into the grumpiest woman alive. Good thing he loves me.
Size of Baby: baby girl is over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds (the size of a honeydew melon). Her kidneys are fully developed now, and her liver can process some waste products. Most of her basic physical development is now complete — she'll spend the next few weeks putting on weight.
Movement: She is still very busy in there but she definitely has her nap times too. I love feeling her little feet poke out, it is the best feeling in the world!
Cravings: Sweets, sweets, sweets!
Symptoms: Back pain...not fun. Still having quite a few braxton hicks, heart burn, and swollen feet. It will all be worth it in a few short weeks!!
Best moment of the week: Celebrating Steve's birthday and finishing our childbirth class.
What I am looking forward to: Our next midwife appointment and finishing up all the little odds and ends before she comes!
Weekly wisdom: I don't have much this week but I will say throughout this pregnancy I have tried really hard to take it one day at a time. I remember how scared I was in the beginning- worrying if we would make it this far- and even though I'm still scared, I feel better when I look at things a little bit at a time instead of trying to figure it all out at once.
