35 Weeks

 35 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Bumped up to 151, making my total is 27 pounds by my scale, 20 pounds by the doctors scale.

Maternity clothes? Non-maternity shirts, skirts and dresses, but ALL maternity pants.  

Stretch marks? Still those pretty ones on my behind. No new ones to report.

Sleep: It varies.

Best moment this week: Our cardiology and OB appointments.  We met with the cardiologist on Monday and got the most fantastic update on my condition.  We have no reason to schedule a C-Section in Nashville for my cardiologist to be present, which means we can deliver in our home town (hopefully) naturally!  I don't have to have another cardiologist follow up until November!

We met with my OB on Wednesday (which is what I assumed to be my 34w0d) and my nurse says to me: 34w5d right?! I look at her, totally confused, and I think she thought I was an idiot.  I explain to her that my original dates from my cycle calculations and estimates would be 34w5d, but based on all my ultrasound measurements, I was only 34w0d and assumed that was the date they were going by since that is what my first OB went with.  She smiled and told me that as long as the mother's calculations are within a week of the ultrasound measurements, they go with the mother, not the technology.  So I'm super excited that our official due date is June 17, 2011!  Which is why this weeks picture says 35 weeks instead of 34.  Since we have been "off" by a few days, my pictures are apparently all a week off.  I may or may not go back and correct it in the blog, but that's why I "skipped" a week.

Movement: His activity has definitely decreased this week.  He is still well within the range of acceptable kick counts, but he is not nearly as active as he has been.

Food cravings: I don't have much of an appetite this week at all.

Gender: Our sweet baby Ethan Bryant Orlando.

Labor Signs: I've had a few signs of feeling that he is beginning to drop, but very few BH.

Belly Button in or out? Half flattie, half's poppin' out folks! :)

Wedding rings on or off? I actually had leave my wedding band at home for a couple of days :( due to a little swelling, but luckily that has passed.

What I miss: Not feeling like I'm carrying a boulder in my stomach.  It is getting so heavy!

What I am looking forward to: My church is throwing us a baby shower next weekend, and I'm really excited about it!

Weekly Wisdom: I have never have any wisdom, are you kidding?!

Milestones: Graduating from a 6 week check up with my cardiologist to a 6 month check up. :)  We are so thrilled and relieved to be well on our way to having this cardiology mess behind us!
