35 Weeks

1/13/08- 35 week appointment

At this weeks appointment I measured right on the money, and had a small contration while he was measuring me. As I was laying back I felt this cramping feeling I've had the last couple days and the doctor told me I was having a mild contraction!! This is so exciting, who knew I'd be twisted enough to get contractions and enjoy them!? Bring on the pain I'm so ready to meet my son and start a new chapter in life. Plus I've been having such a hard time sleeping at night I can't wait to be able to sleep on my back and stomache again. I had to make another trip to the chiropractor after my little guy had managed yet again to knock my ribs out of place, but this time my hips went with them. I was so out of alignment it was painful to walk. Lisa my step mom had told me about this happening to her and now I totally understand what she was going through. I've dropped even lower, who knew this was even possible? But my gut instinct is I won't be making it to the induction date of February 23rd. My actual due date is Feb 15 and I'll be surprised if I make it to Valentines Day. And if I do.. well its going to be a misserable five weeks.

My mom came over last night and helped me finish the curtains for the nursery, we're almost done just a few final details to add. Here are some pictures of me at 35 weeks.

In other news Michelle had a Bday on 1/10/09 so here is a few pics from that night, this is a BAD angle of me on the couch but oh well.

And Darren shaved his head! He randomly does this so when I walk in the door it surprises me!

That is so funny that you like contractions. I honestly never really felt them. I thought I was going to go over my due date. I hope you don't as miserable as it is being pregnant already who wants to be pregnant for longer. I was due on May 31st. My water broke on May 17th at the park. I will keep my fingers crossed that you don't go over! Good Luck!

Yay. . . you are getting so close to the special day!! I couldn't believe how big my belly was at 35 weeks. I only made it to 37 weeks and then i was induced. I was so happy, but I had been going into pre labor since week 20. But you looks so Great!! Let me know if you get closer and if there is anything I can do to help you get ready.
