Week 35

You can find out more here, but I can just give you a brief overview that I'm huge. I'm one giant, awkward ache. Truthfully, I feel like I've kind of hit a plateau in the last couple of weeks. I'm fully in maternity clothes, but I can fit into non-maternity tops and sweaters depending on their length. LOVE these long-sleeved t-shirts from The Gap and am tempted to buy them in every color. The weather is finally getting nicer so I may be able to wear some of the capris that I had from the last pregnancy or maybe some dresses if they are stretchy enough. There's still a lot of movement. I feel like he'll be all leg like Little Miss was, but his arms are very active more so than his legs. I get contractions if I am at rest too long or if I'm overly active, but otherwise, it's not too bad. So, mostly some time in the evening or if I'm running late during my commutes.

We're in the home stretch in terms of preparation. I'd like to get a little more cleaning done this weekend - mostly putting away some laundry, a good dusting and going through some odds and ends. Then, it'll be maintenance from here on out. We'll need to do a lot bit of baby laundry, too. I have a list of things we need to purchase yet, but nothing is immediate, and I've been putting aside gift cards so we're in good shape. Really, I just need the car seat and to charge my camera battery (and remember my camera), and we're good to go. Last time, I forgot my glasses, the camera and the car seat when we left for the hospital. This time, there is a chance those items are the only things I bring. So, we're slightly behind schedule, but my schedule was on the early side anyway. I'm definitely feeling more confident than I was a month ago.

So, everything is going well enough.  Going into the final stretch now though!
