Happy Easter Y'all!!!
I am 35 weeks today and have 35 days left to go!!! I can remember seeing other gals post about the 35/35 and always imagined how awesome it would be to be able to experience being 35 weeks pg and only having 35 days to go!! And now I am there!!! I still cannot believe it!
The thing that keeps reminding me is that I am sooo uncomfortable right now!!! For the past two days my back has been hurting ALOT!!!! It starts out hurting when I am sitting down to eat and then it seems like no matter how I sit, stand, or lay it just hurts! I am assuming it is b/c my belly has grown even bigger and now my back is paying the price. However, I plan on talking to my doctor Thursday to make sure. And remember how my heart starts beating really fast out of the blue, well it did it today and I got that is another question I will be asking my doctor. And I haven't had any braxton hicks contractions or any contractions...shouldn't I be having some by now???? Okay, so now I have a list of questions for my dr.
We had an awesome Easter and got to spend tons of time with our family. I became exhausted too early b/c of my back, but overall it was a great day! I kept imagining that Noah will almost be a year old next Easter. I can't even imagine my little guy being almost one!!

Here are some stats on Noah from babycenter.....Your baby doesn't have much room to maneuver now that he's over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds (pick up a honeydew melon). Because it's so snug in your womb, he isn't likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number of times he kicks should remain about the same. His kidneys are fully developed now, and his liver can process some waste products. Most of his basic physical development is now complete — he'll spend the next few weeks putting on weight.

And here are some stats on me....
How Far Along: 35 weeks
Total Weight Gained/Loss: gained ALOT..enough said
Best Moment of the Week: doing maternity pictures
Movement: oh yes, he is kicking me in my ribs alot these days, but mommy doesn't mind at all
Food Craving: chicken and chocolate..the two essential C's!!!
Food aversions: nothing
Symptoms: backaches and heartburn!!
Gender: Beautiful Bouncing Boy!
Labor Signs: none, which is starting to worry me!
Belly Button: in
What I miss: sleeping through the night without getting up to tinkle or switch sides
What I'm looking forward to: having everything ready for Noah's arrival
Milestones: 35 days to go!!!! he could be here anyday now!!

When I was preggo I never had any braxton hicks either. At 38 weeks my water broke and 16 hours later my daughter was born.
