So I have made it to 35 weeks! This is the week Ethan was born, but so far this time around, things are a lot better!
I am getting anxious, but also feel a bit overwhelmed- like I have so much to do before the baby comes! But really, I dont have much- I still need to register at the hospital, pack for the hospital and wash some onesies and pj's- but thats it. All the rest will be done when baby gets here and we know the sex. But I cant help lay in bed at night (yes, wide awake) and wonder what else I am forgetting to do! It makes me overwhelmed!
At my last appointment (monday) baby was measuring huge- already 6lbs, which puts him/her in the 8oth percentile for size at this stage! Everything physically looked great, and I couldnt be happier! ...Except for the pain! This kid has been head down and trying to push its way out since week 21, so the pressure is just mounting up as he or she grows. Sometimes I feel like my crotch is going to turn inside out because there is so much pressure and pain. My cervix is super short because of this, and they were worried about preterm labor at 29 weeks, but since I have made it this far without dialating, they are not worried and are expecting me to go full-term. I still go to the dr weekly, which is fun bc I get an us each time (the 4D kind!) and so I already have a ton of pictures to start a baby book!
Yesterday, I took Ethan to the mall to have some pictures done with me and I thought I would include them in this post. I havent ever posted belly pics, so this is a first time thing for me! You can all finally see what I look like 30lbs heavier than normal!
So any guesses on what you think the sex might be?

You look absolutely stunning and that hunk with you is pretty cute too!! He looks like such alittle man! I can't believe you're almost ready to go have this baby! I can't wait to hear what it is but my bet is girl like Susan said! I'm so happy that things are going good and baby is staying put - try to get some rest before he/she arrives!!!! I'll be thinking about you!

Hi Stephaine,

First you look so good !! My guess a boy- I am going with that. We are almost their!! I cant believe it myself. Sometimes it has felt like forever, and other times it seems like yesterday since the big BFP.
I cant believe that he/she's already 6lbs- thats wounderful. I wish you the best of luck always
Rachael

I"m going with girl and you still look so small for 35 weeks! Although I'm sure you are just as uncomfortable as me with my huge belly that looks like I have twins in there.

Won't be long!

Maybe its my really oily pregnancy skin

So most of you think girl? Hmmmm, people all around me are so split down the middle. With Ethan, everyone except Rob said boy, so even though he was a surprise, we were all kinda expecting a boy, so to speak.

And I might look smaller than normal, but I think I must carry a lot in back because I am super uncomfortable and I have gained 30lbs- the weight is somewhere!!!

Hi Stephanie!! I'm still going with what I thought when I first heard you were preggo. I think it's a boy. I'm really glad you've made so far. I hope the little one stays in the oven for 8 more weeks.

You look great! Love the pic of Ethan kissing your belly. So cute!!!

LOL!! OOOPPPS I see what I did, I looked at the number of days left and thought you were only 32 weeks along!! I'm sorry. You're 35 weeks. OK, 4 more weeks. I'm sorry, I guess I had preggo brain thinking for me last night! LOL! That's happened quite a few times recently. Is that normal? If not, please say it is, that way I don't feel so dumb.

I'm sorry if I scared you!
