35 week appt

Baby girl is doing great:) She is a little thing... weighing in at 4 pounds 15 ounces (10th percentile). Sonograms can be off by 20%...so who knows where she will end up. My doctor isn't worried, as she is still growing, and could gain up to 1/2 pound each week. She said plenty of babies are born full term in the 5 pound range and are perfectly healthy. Check out her big lips;) Such a cutie!

34 weeks

How Far Along
: 34 weeks
Size of Baby:Honeydew- We might be getting an ultrasound @ tomorrow's appointment (35 weeks) so we'll have a better idea of how big she really is:)
Total Weight Gain: 24 pounds-- Super hungry these past 2 weeks.. guess she's growing!
Maternity Clothes: for sure!
Gender: baby girl! Alexandria Rae Sulak
Movement: Some days she is WAY more active than others. I have learned that she takes after her mama, and LOVES Christmas cookies. Definitely the biggest reaction from these- out of anything I have eaten the whole pregnancy.
Sleep: Haven't been sleeping as well as I used to. So sad!! I have days where I have TONS of energy and want to get everything done...and then days where I totally crash and feel that I have hit a brick wall.
What I Miss: Having my body to myself. I'm ready to be able to exercise again- It's been 8 weeks since I've been allowed to work out. This has been a HUGE change for me. I know I'll be wishing I had an excuse to not work out in a few weeks ;0)
Cravings: None really- so boring!!
Symptoms: I treated myself to a prenatal massage- REALLY helped with my back pain. It's been creeping back, so I'll probably go have another sometime soon...
Best Moment this Week: Knowing that we're almost to the 35 week mark...which is when my Dr won't stop labor....meaning we're in the 'safe zone' :) Can't wait to meet our sweet baby girl

32 weeks

hmmm...make-up would have been a good idea... haha..and in other news, my face has officially gained a few pounds!
How Far Along: 32 weeks
Size of Baby:Squash- I would guess around 3 3/4 pounds, and she should be gaining 1/2 lb per week!
Total Weight Gain: 20 pounds-- I'm supposed to be gaining 1 pound per week now...yuck!
Maternity Clothes: for sure!
Gender: baby girl! Alexandria Rae Sulak
Movement: She's still pretty active. She moves from side to side...giving both sides a fair share of kicks- definitely prefers my right side though.
Sleep: Haven't been sleeping as well as I used to. So sad!!
What I Miss: Sleeping on my stomach....big time
Cravings: None really- so boring!!
Symptoms: hernia pain, back pain--BIG TIME :(, BHs, pressure
Best Moment this Week: I got to see Alexandria again-- had an ultrasound b/c I was having so many BHs. She is still head down, with her booty by my bellybutton. I still have plenty of fluid, and the FFN test was negative:)- which means I have less than a 3% change of going into labor w/in the next 2 weeks. Dr. Pao is predicting an early January baby...she would happily deliver her anytime after 35 weeks...I'm hoping she's right! SO eager to meet our princess!
