Pregnancy Update – 35 Weeks

I have to admit it but I’m getting to the point where I am tired all the time.  I barely sleep at night and have a toddler that likes to wake up before 5am.  The combination of the two makes for one tired me.  I’m also trying to help out fixing up our new home (not painting and stuff but doing the home depot runs, etc…) and packing up our old house.  The list goes on and on and it seems that my workouts are being sacrificed.  Since I’m nearing the end, I’m not too upset that I’m only running 3-4 times a week instead of 5.  I am a little upset that my swimming is being put on the back burner.  I enjoyed being in the warm water and off my feet while pregnant with Lucas.

35 weeks

But, to be totally honest, everything hurts and I’m in major pain.  I have burning hips, groin pain, tons of pressure, contractions and back pain.  By the end of the day I am a miserable mess.  I’m thankful to be pregnant and in this type of pain but….I’m done.   The consensus is that I probably won’t make it to my December 24th due date but I’m mentally preparing myself for an overdue baby.  The one thing I do know is that I won’t be pregnant into 2014.  Our insurance is changing and we have a slight lapse over the new year.  I don’t want to risk having the baby during the lapse so I’ll be induced on 12/30 if the baby hasn’t arrived yet.

How far along? 35 weeks + 1 day
Maternity clothes?  Not much fits these days but there is a silver lining to maternity clothes.  I’ve already packed up all my clothes for our move since I’m not wearing any of them right now!
Symptoms: MISERY!
Miss Anything? Sleep, wine, painless days and running fast
Food cravings: Clementines.  Not much food sounds good these days and I am basically living on clementines and meat.  The meat I have to eat because of the anemia.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Have you started to show yet: As of last week my fundal height is still measuring 3+ weeks ahead.  Insane, I tell ya!

  1. Sorry to hear you aren’t feeling better! I really can’t imagine being pregnant with a busy toddler (which is what I tell myself when all you gorgeous girls give me baby fever). I think you are doing awesome. Hopefully you can treat yourself to a nice massage/pedicure/spa day/nap in Barnes & Noble.
