Bumpdate – 35 weeks

35 weeks

(picture totally stolen from my friend from church, Dani, whose little boy is due just three days before Jameson!)

How far along: 35 weeks (and one day)
How big is baby: About the size of a coconut, or 18+ inches long (not exactly sure, it really just depends on his genetics). Weight is around 5.5 pounds.
Newest baby developments: His hearing is 100% fully developed and he might have started memorizing songs that I sing pretty often, which means he’ll recognize them after he’s born too. πŸ™‚ He’s still working on gaining some weight and he’ll probably put on at least a pound of fat before the big day.
Movement: Still moving consistently (which always is such a relief to me!), still gets the hiccups at least once a day, and still always gets annoyed that he has the hiccups haha (he starts kicking and punching until I talk to him and then he calms down). He’s so good about relaxing when I relax and going to sleep at the same time as me. I feel so lucky because I know that’s usually exactly opposite of babies at this stage. Most babies wake up when their mommies stop moving because the rocking helps put them to sleep. But not Jameson. πŸ™‚ He’d rather sleep when I sleep, which I absolutely love about him. I can’t wait to snuggle with him in person!
Weirdest symptoms: My Braxton Hicks contractions (which I’ve had pretty consistently since early the second trimester) have definitely picked up these past few days especially. They last for at least a minute (sometimes up to 2 minutes) and they’re getting stronger. They’re still sporadic, though, so it’s not real labor or anything yet.
Best moment this week: We’re pretty much DONE with the nursery! Alex is hanging some pictures up right now actually and then it’s finished! I have maybe one or two more loads of Jameson’s laundry to do, we have to install his car seat, and there’s a few things I need to get for the hospital, but we’re pretty much baby-ready at this point. πŸ™‚
Worst moment this week: Just some aches and pains but nothing terrible.
Cravings: Yeah, cravings don’t exist for me. Maybe the next baby haha.
Looking forward to: Our hospital tour this Thursday and just getting everything ready to go. πŸ™‚
