35 Weeks!

Sorry I have been MIA on here.  This third tri I have been so unmotivated to do anything! I am so tired all the time and its just easy to keep putting off updating on here.  I can't believe we have 5 weeks left till our sweet girl's due date.  We are pretty much ready for this girl!  All we have left to do is pack the bags and install the car-seat. Such a wonderful feeling.  I am just watching time pass slowly now and eagerly awaiting her arrival.

  • How far along?: 35 WEEKS!  We have Less than 5 weeks till this little nugget's due date.
  • Baby is the size of a: A large cantaloupe. BUT She is measuring a week ahead so she might be even bigger than that! 
  • Total weight gain/loss: Last checked (I believe Friday morning) about 27.5 lbs.  No telling after this weekend though.  Ate a bunch and have been very lazy so probably gained 5 lbs in two days lol.
  • The Bump:  HUGE! She has definitely made her presence to let everyone know I am pregnant!  :)
  • Symptoms:  Hmm... cramps usually in the mornings, I am starting to waddle, tired most of the time, irritation...ready for this girl to be here so I can have my body back.  I know I really have had it lucky-- since she has so much room, I am really not miserable.  BUT I feel like I have so many other uncomfortable symptoms that are making up for it!  Luckily, no heartburn and I am sleeping pretty well as of now. 
  • Food Cravings: I'd have to say burgers. I never want to miss out on an opportunity for one and I really enjoy them when I get to eat them! I don't ever wake up in the middle of the night and think "MAN I COULD REALLY GO FOR A BURGER" but it has definitely been my food of choice.
  • Anything Making Me Queasy or SickNope.
  • Sleep: You know, I it has been so long that I have posted on here that I haven't told y'all about the loss of our cat.  Its been really hard and I am still recovering but we had to put my sweet cat, Mali, down about a month ago.  She was my best friend always by my side and so loving.  I miss her so much.  BUT I must say, I sleep so much better now that she is with the Lord.  She doesn't wake me up throughout the night and I only wake up once a night to use the bathroom now. 
  • What I miss: Well I don't deprive myself of too much these days.  I miss sleeping on my stomach  champagne and running.  Can't wait to do all of those things in a few months.
  • Weddings Rings On or Off: On. Fortunately, still no swelling yet. 
  • Any Names Picked Out Yet: RILEY GRACE
  • Gender: Baby Barnes is a girl! 
  • Movement: She is very active.  Can't wait to see how active she will be on the outside!
  • Maternity Clothes: I am down to about 2 pair of pants (I DO LAUNDRY ALL THE TIME) and about 5-6 shirts. My wardrobe is very limited and I am trying to get creative, but not really motivated to do so. 
  • Labor Signs: I had my first Braxton Hicks last week (about 3 in the same day) but haven't had any since. Maybe I was dehydrated.
  • Best Moment of the Week: Finishing up RIley's registry and finishing up the nursery.  We are ready for you sweet girl, whenever you want to come!
  • What I’m excited about/looking forward to: Of course FINALLY geting to meet RILEY. Usually I would say my birthday which is in 2 weeks from today. For some reason, it just doesn't seem like that big of a deal this year.  I am excited to be with family and bring on another year, but other than that... no margaritas= not so much excitement. lol  Oh and we are moving into the weekly appointments starting this week! VERY EXCITED ABOUT THAT!
