Week 35

How big is baby? The size of a durian! 

Baby Development FYI: He’s about 17.2 to 18.7 inches. From here on out, he won’t get much longer, but he’s plumping up. He’s now about 4.2 to 5.8 pounds, and he’ll put on a pound or more of baby fat before birth. Now, his hearing is fully developed, and he responds best to high-pitched noises. If it’s a boy, his testes have probably fully descended.


My body has been invaded, how’s that going?  It’s hard to breath, horrible back pain if  I walk too much…the grocery store is too much, bending over is a chore in itself…but amusing to others, lightning crotch is no joke…it’s exactly what it sounds like if you are wondering what this is, I’ve noticed a light linea nigra below my belly button, my belly button is over to the side…also amusing to others, my belly feels really tight, and definitely waddling around.

What’s been on my mind?  Holy crap we are getting close.  It seems like we are more in denial now that we are so close to the finish line.  We have 4 weeks to go (give or take), so we are very anxious and excited.  I’ve started to pack our hospital bags…will post my list separately.  
The nursery and baby items are pretty much ready to go.  Now I’ve got the rest of the house to clean up and not sure how easy that is going to be to actually get done.  Anyone have a magic wand I can borrow?

Crazy Cravings:  I had an odd craving for something Nate would not let me fulfill.  Captain Crunch and eggnog.  

Highlights: Being home for the holidays.  It was nice visiting with everyone one last time while it is just Nate and me.  The OB cleared me to go home only because home has a great hospital.  So now I have to stay put until this baby arrives!  Ahhhh! So crazy.
