35 Weeks Pregnant!

How far along: 35 weeks pregnant (in this picture...I'm actually posting this 35.5 weeks)...Due September 3rd!

Gender: Baby BOY!!

Total weight gain: Up 20 lb.

Exercise: For the last few weeks my workout routine has been the same. I do my HIIT class 3-4 days a week and then the other 2 days I walk 4 miles in the morning and another 3 miles in the afternoon.

Maternity clothes: I mainly live in workout clothes, dresses, and the pair of normal shorts I bought a couple sizes up. I did buy a black, maternity dress last week that is SO comfy, so that's been a go to as well.

Miss anything: Just some of my wardrobe. I'm a bit limited these days, but that's ok!

Movement: All the time...I absolutely love it. I could sit and watch/feel it forever. A lot of the day I can see his little feet sticking out on my right side. I adore it!

Have you started to show: You betcha!

Stretch marks: This is a tricky one. I never got stretch marks on my belly with Mckenna. But ever since puberty I've had stretch marks on my thighs, tush, and hips. They are very fine and you only really see them when the light hits them right. So there's a good chance that I got more with Mckenna, I just have no idea. My guess is I may be getting more as we speak, I just can't see them in comparison to what is already there!

Belly button in or out: It's out...kind of. Sometimes it's out, sometimes it's in...depending on where he's positioned. But more often than not, it's flush with my belly.

Wedding rings on or off: On, when I actually wear them! I take them off for exercise, showers, and sleeping...and with my baby brain and pregnancy brain, I often forget to put them back on!

Sleep: I’ve felt more tired lately. But really...what mom isn't?!

Labor signs: I've had a couple end of pregnant signs, but none that are associated with labor happening any day. I have been losing my mucus plug (sorry if you're reading this over breakfast...GAG!) in pieces since last Wednesday afternoon. Also, my Braxton Hicks contractions have picked up. On Friday afternoon/evening, I had them every 2-7 minutes for several hours. Since then I've had them A LOT...a majority of the day I have probably 10 an seems like my belly is contracting more than it's not. 

Best moment of this week: The best moment of the week was celebrating my mom's birthday. God has blessed me with a mom that should be the envy of mom's everywhere. She's a wonderful mom, wife, daughter and friend. She has taught me what it looks like to be a strong woman with a loving and compassionate twist. She is Martha Stewart and Bob Villa mixed with Mary Poppins and Mother Teresa.
