(Picture from my shower this past weekend.)
How far along: 35 weeks
Size of Baby: 18 in & 5.25 lb
Fruit/vegetable comparison: Honeydew Melon
Total weight gain: ??? I forgot to weight! (I'm feeling like it's a lot. Ha!)
Sleep: I've had some pretty good nights and still some rough nights. I think Maggie is starting to drop so the heartburn hasn't been as bad as it has been, but I've had a few nights with pretty bad indigestion. :( I wake up coughing which in turn wakes up the hubs. Poor guy... he deserves a metal for sleeping with me. He talks about how tired he is and can't figure out why. Ha!
Movement: There are some days that she is a mover and a shaker & others she's pretty quiet. Just last night one of her body parts was poking out and Ryan & I were trying to figure out what it was. I don't know how people know what things are?! She also gave me quite the kick in the ribs on Saturday. That was probably the first time it actually hurt!
Unglamorous body changes: Indigestion, a little bit of heartburn and just being a little extra tired. I feel like I got overwhelmed easier these days too.
What I miss: Probably still just a full nights rest.
Milestones: Her kidneys are fully developed now, and her liver can process some waste products. Basic physical development is now mostly complete - her main job over the next few weeks is to put on weight. (baby center)
Best moment this week: Definitely the baby shower my mom & Godmother threw for me in Kansas City for my side of the family. It was wonderful to see family & friends. I can't wait to blog about it! Ryan & I also got to see a few of our friends that have had babies recently on Friday. (I posted pictures of them below.) I also got to visit with my grandma on Sunday! We also saw the doctor this week and everything is still looking good. Now I will be going every week to see the doctor!! How did I get here so fast?? Next week he will be starting to check to see if I'm dilating! I do think she's starting to drop! AHHH!!! I forgot to mention last week that I've started training the lady who will be taking over for me during my maternity leave. Things are moving along!
Looking forward to: Hitting the one month mark!! Ryan & I are going to a wedding shower this weekend here in Bartlesville for some good friends. I'm excited to go since their wedding is just weeks after my due date which means we are unlikely to make it to the wedding. We also finally got curtains and a few other things for the nursery. So I'm excited to finish a few more projects for the nursey this weekend. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Ha!

Emily, Mark & Caden
Caden was born on Thanksgiving day! Such a cute family.
This is me finally meeting my best friend's baby, Greta! She was born a month ago. I can't believe it's already been that long. So happy for Matt & Kara! She is such a doll.
Michelle & Henri
Henri is now 5 months old. How has time flown by so fast?? Ryan & I actually happened to visit them right when David & Michelle were in the process of moving to Wichita! So we were able to pitch in and help them load up their moving truck (well Ryan did at least). I'm sad they will no longer be in KC but I think we will still be able to see them a lot because they are now on the way to Ryan's home town AND Ryan's sister & brother-in-law live there!
