How far along? 35 weeks

Total Weight gain: 22 pounds

Maternity clothing? Still wearing the same maternity clothes I bought in the beginning of my pregnancy. All of my long shirts and sweaters still fit me (:

Stretch marks? No stretch marks! My tummy is getting so big though! Praying for no stretch marks in these few weeks that are still to come.

Sleep? What’s that? Haha. Haven’t slept well since last week. She is kicking my ribs and waking me up every night. I’ve been going to bed around 2am, sometimes 4am. I guess my body is preparing me for no sleep when she comes. Haha.

Best moment this week: My sister Esterka had a baby this week! We were at the mall shopping and she started to get contractions. The next day she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Sophie. (:

Worst moment this week: I have been feeling so uncomfortable this week. By far the hardest week of my pregnancy. Lower back hurts and baby has been kicking and not letting me sleep. On top of that got an allergic reaction on my lips and need to take medicine for that. I am ready to meet my baby girl oh so soon!

Miss anything? Ordered maternity belt and a pregnancy pillow this week. Definitely need some support on my belly. Even walking is getting more difficult. And with the pregnancy pillow, I’m hoping I’ll be more comfortable at night and will be able to get some sleep.

Movement: When my doctor asks me If I count her kicks, I laugh because there is no need to do that in my case! Haha. She is such a kicker and mover, I call her my little dancer. Will definitely miss that feeling!

Food cravings: Fruit is something that I have started to crave.

Anything making you queasy or sick: I cannot eat full meals, otherwise my I throw up. I feel like I have  no room left in my tummy. Eating small portions throughout the day, is how I survive.

Symptoms: Cannot stand or walk too much. I get tired real quick!

Have you started to show yet: Are you kidding?! Look at my photos! Haha.

Labor signs: Starting to get the fake contractions. Especially at night.

Belly Button in or out? This week, belly button out.

Exercise?: I continue on walking during my lunch breaks at work. But can’t walk for  too  long. Also, taking prenatal yoga classes. Feels good to stretch!

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy but very tired as well (:

Looking forward to: Sleeping on my stomach.
