YEAH! We officially made it another week! That puts us at 10+ weeks of contractions/cramping, pressure and bed rest! We've made it this far and we are SO close to meeting our little girl! I am so ready at this point, but I'm hoping for another 2 weeks to get her to full term. I am excited to be off "bed rest restrictions" when I hit 36 weeks!
How far along? 35 weeks! 2 more till full term!
Total weight gain/loss: lost 10, gained 20- shes head down
Sleep: not sleeping well b/c of the contractions and cramping, tossing and turning, sciatic pain, hot flashes and having to pee a lot, restless leg pain
How big is baby? prob about 6 lbs: about the size of a coconut!
Best moment this week: all of Bella's things are organized and ready for her arrival!
Movement: lots of rolls, kicks, punches, hiccups you name it! Sometimes she's just plain violent!
Symptoms: preterm contractions, menstral like cramps, exhausted, intense cervical pressure, restless legs, vericose vein pain, sciatica pain, reflux even with meds
Symptoms I DON'T have: nausea
Food cravings: chocolate ice cream mmmm, granola bars
Food aversions: none this week

Belly Button in or out? in
What I miss: feeling "normal", but it'll happen soon enough!!
What I am looking forward to: hitting 36 weeks and having the worst of my bed rest restrictions lifted!
