~ Week 35 ~

Standard

 

 

 

Week 35 recap!! *Squeel!* Baby reached the size of a coconut (This is weight wise methinks as I am definately carrying more than a coconut in there!) and is technically full term or ‘late pre-term’. Reaching the full 40 weeks is very important though for brain development which is still going strong.

This past week went really fast! Maybe it’s because we are nearly there, I think time is going faster that normal and I am in nesting overdrive at home. There is still lots to buy and do and I really want to have my hospital bag ready just in case! The Nursery isn’t finished just yet but we are nearly there with all the essential bits n’ bobs so I can

I had my  OB check this week too, which included an ultrasound, weigh in and measurement of bump. It had been four weeks since my last check up and I gained 10lbs in that month! O_O  Which was a lot in such a short space of time even Doc said, but this is the weight gaining time and baby is fully grown in length  just getting plumper and plumper til D-day. I blame Hallowe’en and all the left over choccies mostly! Also the fact I’m not really exercising like before as when I do move it’s just too slow and waddley to count. Lots of my maternity clothes are even getting too small and tight now but it doesn’t feel worth it to invest in some more at this stage.

The ultrasound showed that baby is turned the right way around and descended down  {which I knew from the pressure that’s there all the time and loo trips every 30 minutes like clockwork} but my bump is still very high so I am still getting kicked in the ribs.  Everything is right on track though and Doc thinks that baby will arrive on the expected due date of December 15th.

Now if only we could decide on names..
