I've been so bad at documenting this pregnancy. I had really good intentions, because I know this is my last go-round, but I think it's been about 8 weeks since I last took a "belly shot".
Anyway, here I am at 35 weeks!
35 down, 5 to go (in theory)! I've got my hopes set on having this little girl on Easter Sunday, which is 4 weeks from today and 8 days before my due date. I had Tempe and Helena at 39 weeks and Juno at 38+2, so Easter falls right into my baby-having range. My mom was born on Easter Sunday and I think it would be so sweet if this one would come that day as well!
No huge complaints from me, although Jason might disagree. Baby girl is in my ribs and my ribcage has expanded quite a bit so that's uncomfortable, but par for the course. She's still moving a ton and every once in a while will really hurt me! I haven't had as many contractions as I think I did at this point in other pregnancies, but maybe I'm remembering wrong. I have awful heartburn, although the antacids help a bit.
The weirdest symptom I have is my darkening skin. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am the whitest person you'll ever meet. I burn, not tan, no matter what, and I really don't care. But suddenly my face is so dark and tan and people have been asking if I've been going to a tanning bed (NO you shouldn't go tanning when you're 8 months pregnant!!!) I have been outside a ton lately because it's nice weather, but no more than I normally do at this time of year. I know pregnancy can make your skin get darker, so I think that's what's happening, although I've never experienced it before.
Oh, hello toes, is that you down there?
I love having a big belly :)
