Pregnancy Week 35

Love Life and Lollipops- Pregnancy 35 Weeks

  • I forgot to tell you guys last week about the knife lodged into my side.  It's more like my lower left belly and it's not a knife, but it sure feels like it!  Risa says it's a ligament stretching.  Apparently the baby's having a growth spurt and growing faster than my uterus.  Ugh!
  • Also, I'm having tons of braxton hicks contractions.  I'm hoping it's a good thing as it may mean the baby'll come on the early side:)  With Avi they didn't start until 37-38 weeks.
  • Baby kicks like crazy!!!  Check out this video: Baby Belly 35 Weeks.  (I swear I'm wearing a bathing suit in the video!  My belly's just so damn big it's hidden!).  It's totally sci-fi.  Reminds me of the movie Aliens!  Keeps me up at night.
  • That and having to pee every 30 minutes (ok not every 30 minutes, but I'm up at least 2-3 times after my last pee before bed every night).
  • (Having a braxton hicks right damn now!)
  • My belly is so low I can't imagine it could drop any further!  Maybe this is as low as it can go?
  • The baby is more than 18" long, 5 1/4lbs, and a honeydewmelon.
