How Far Along? 35 weeks today, due October 15, 2015
Weight Gain: 26.5lbs
Maternity Clothes: Making what works work
Nursery: Ahhhh, it's ready to roll with the exception of a few details (new drapes, styled shelves, bolster pillows needed). I'd like the drapes installed before I take real pictures, but PBK has been super slow so we'll see.
Movement: Lots still which is great....the wildest movement is when he moves his head which sticks out like a melon below my ribs.
Symptoms: Slowing down in all areas, out of breath a lot easier (walking and talking is tough!), and hungrier!
Sleep: Not bad actually
Joel: Couldn't have done this week without him, no doubt about it. From the nursery to the doctors appointments to making sure I've been eating enough, or sleeping enough, or relaxing enough, or whatever....Joel has seriously been my rock this week.
Workouts: Six-ish. 2 gym, 1 spin, 1 pool, 1 hike, and neighborhood walks.
Mood: Lots of ups and downs this week
Cravings: Life cinnamon cereal
What I Miss: Not running my A/C and cool, fresh air
Random Things: Kind of a lot this week.
1. Growth Scan - Looked great. Babe clocked in at 5lb 4oz, right about the 35% tile and they could see some hair and chubby cheeks! All of his organs, fluids, and movement looked great and was a very nice relief to check in.
2. Positioning - We've had a feeling all along but the baby is still breech (frank, in fact). We have some legit discussions and decisions we have to make in the coming week
3. High BP - So, after those two appointments back to back I was ultra nervous and my blood pressure was significantly higher than normal. I always get a higher white coat reading, and my doctor knows that, but this time I just couldn't calm down. To be on the safe side, she sent me for labs, which all came back totally normal. The next day I got a perfect 120/80 reading at CVS when I was calm and relaxed, so I really, really need to start focusing on some relaxation techniques to get a handle on it!
