35 Weeks!

Reed waving HELLO! 
How far along?  35 Weeks (+1 day)

Weight Gain: +3 in the last 8 days.  I mean, really!?!?!  How is that even possible!?!?  LOL.  

Maternity Clothes: Squeezing into my maternity jeans and rotating a few maternity shirts.  I've outgrown maternity clothes that I bought in the fall.  Oh well.  

Stretch Marks:  Not happy...  

Sleep:  I've been sleeping GREAT!  In fact, this morning JJ went running at 5am, and I never even heard him leave!  I've been getting about 7-8 of sleep per night.  (Still taking 3-5 bathroom breaks per night though!)  

Best moment this week:  My ice cream and foot massage date with Amanda!  An hour foot massage at YaYa Foot Spa is bliss for a pregnant lady!  The other highlight of the week was our sonogram today.  We had not "seen" Baby Reed since our 20-week sonogram so it was very special.  He's packed in there pretty tightly so it was hard to get a really good picture of him.  We did find out that he's weighing 5 pounds 11 ounces and measuring 18.5 inches at this point.  He's measuring right at track, and the doctor predicts he will be about 7 pounds 11 ounces at birth!  Perfect!  =) 

Missing anything?  Prosecco.  27 days until I have a nice, big glass in the hospital...

Movement:  Reed is getting hiccups 2-3 per day.  He actually had hiccups during the entire sonogram!  It was so cool to feel him hiccup and actually see it on the sonogram screen.  The sonogram tech told us that hiccups are actually a really good thing because it's a form of breathing, and it helps build and strengthen his lungs!  She said babies HATE hiccups though!  So funny!  :)   

Food Cravings:    I read online that Kim Kardashian has been craving Pizookies from BJ's restaurant during her pregnancy.  Ever since I read that, I've been craving Pizookies from BJ's as well.  Also, yellow Gatorade is a  must.  I could drink about a gallon of that per day!  {Reed must be an athlete?!?!?}

Sickness/Symptoms:  Heartburn and some other non-ladylike symptoms!  

Labor Signs: Not that I know of.  I'm wondering about these Braxton Hicks contractions I read about.  I don't think I've gotten them.  I guess I would know if I had one!?!?

Belly Button:  Not cool, belly button, not cool...

Wedding Rings On/Off:  On.  As soon as it warms up, they are coming off.

Moods:  Eager, excited, and down right happy!

Looking forward to:  Baby shower at Primo's on Thursday with my Shugart Sheriffs and Garland ISD friends!!  I have six wonderful friends who are putting on this shower for me, and I couldn't be happier about it!  I'm so lucky to have a caring, loving support group!  

Video from today's sonogram if you are interested!  You can see his heartbeat and then see his sweet hiccups every few seconds.  It's hard to tell what you are looking at for the most part, but it's a baby, I promise!  His head is down and he was facing down so can't see his face.  Bummer.  
One more pic...  Check out his cool, squiggly hair!!!
