Week 35 Update

It's always hard going back to work the Monday after a holiday weekend. I'm just grateful that I only have a few more weeks, before I'm on maternity leave! We have everything we need for Charlotte, so as far as I'm concerned, she can come any day now.

How far along?: 35 weeks, 2 days
Baby is the size of a: Coconut
Total weight gain/loss: 40lbs
The Bump: Staying the same. Hopefully she drops soon!
Symptoms: The nausea that I had from the first trimester is back. Thankfully I don't actually get sick. I just feel super nauseous if I go too long between meals.
Food Cravings: I've been on a milkshake kick this week....ooops
Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: Not eating makes me sick.
Sleep: Numbness is getting so bad! I wake up multiple times a night with no feeling from my fingertips to my elbows. I think this is one of the worst symptoms.
What I miss: My lung capacity. Climbing the 4 sets of stairs to get into my house gets harder and harder everyday.
Weddings Rings On or Off: Off
Any Names Picked Out Yet: Charlotte Noel
Gender Prediction: Girl
Movement: Still tons of movement. I'm not sure if this foreshadows a very active little girl. But I never go more than a few hours without feeling her.
Maternity Clothes: Officially over it.
Labor Signs: Not that I know of!
Best Moment of the Week: Thanksgiving of course! It was fun to spend time with family and to see everyone so excited and anxious for Charlotte to get here!
What I’m excited about/looking forward to: I have an appointment today and I'm hoping to get some more information on her size and positioning. Who knows, maybe this will be the month we bring her home!

Linking up with Molly for Funday Monday!
