Today is another milestone in my pregnancy - it's my 35/35! I am 35 weeks along with 35 days to go. 40 weeks will be here before I know it! Baby is somewhere around 6 pounds, and is mainly just putting on fat now. She will be putting on about an ounce a day. She's somewhere around 18"-19" and probably won't grow too much longer at this point. I'm pretty sure that she is really low. I've gotten several comments on how low I am carrying. And I can definitely feel her, between the constant need to pee and the weird lightning shocks I get in my pelvis when she moves down there. My uterus is well up under my ribs now (and I am definitely getting frequent kicks up there now!) and the amniotic fluid is starting to decrease as my belly gets more and more full of baby.
Well, it's official...my milk factories work. I'm a little freaked out by it... I was SO not prepared to see that. But hey, at least I know they are working! I feel like I am constantly peeing now. As soon as I walk away from the restroom, the urge strikes again. It's like each time I pee I make more room for the baby, so she moves down onto my bladder again. I had no idea it was possible to pee as many times a day as I do now! I'm also finding it necessary to start loading up on the fiber again. All that pressure down there is slowing other things down. I'm really not having any issues with heartburn or anything like that, thankfully.
Make and freeze meals to eat after Baby arrives
Pack hospital bag
Put together all my notes from childbirth class, hospital paperwork, birth plan, etc. so that I feel organized
Wash baby clothes and put away everything still in packages in the baby's room.
