35 Weeks +

Ahhh, 35 weeks! I just got back from the doctor and everything looks great. My blood pressure is normal as usual, 116/62. As for weight, 18 pounds total. 5 pounds in the past two weeks. I'm sure that's baby picking up weight, but the Girl Scout cookies HAVE NOT helped! LOL

My stomach has definitely rounded. Getting up from the couch is hard. I still tie my shoes and shave my legs! Mr. Later Than Most yells at me because I try to do more than he says I'm "supposed to." Honestly, he hasn't really made it through a full baby book so I'm not sure where he gets his details! Hahahah! Nah, he's just being helpful!

So, one last ultrasound next week to make sure the baby is head-down. It was moving all around for the heart rate check today. The doctor had to keep starting over! I also got the rules of no traveling an hour away from the hospital and to "pack those hospital bags." Well, I did already start, but I'm not finished. I think he made it rather real for us!

I'm still sleeping like a champ, but getting up to pee every hour. The funny thing is that I'll get up and be wide awake. Then I lay back down and go right to sleep! I know that's how the body prepares you for baby, but how do people pee so much?

In the past week we put together the changing table, swing and bouncy chair. This weekend is car seat install and City Mini stroller prep! I love that stroller!

Hope all is well with you all!
