Bumpdate 2.0: 35 Weeks

Due Date: December 1, 2017

How far along?: 35 weeks

Gender: It's a BOY!

Name: Sterling Alan

Total weight gain:  ~33  lbs.

Stretch marks?: No visible stretch marks...but that line down the middle of my belly {linea nigra} is becoming a bit more prominent!

Symptoms: I think the extra weight I'm carrying around is starting to affect my joints...seems like there's a lot more popping and cracking when I get up in the mornings or after I've been sitting at my desk for awhile {or could this just be a sign of old age?}

Maternity clothes?:  ALL.THE.TIME! And I have a very limited selection of maternity clothes for the cooler weather {and I refuse to buy more for the last month}, so the few that I do have will likely be on a pretty tight rotation schedule for the next month!

Sleep:  It's getting harder and harder to sleep because I can't find a comfortable position. That snoogle pillow that I didn't have much use for during Huston's pregnancy has become a life saver this time around!

Cravings:  Still on the "breakfast food diet," which consists of a lot of cereal and toast!

Best/Worst Moment of the Week: This past Saturday we took family/maternity photos along with Huston's two-year-old pics. This is a combo best/worst moment of the week because the photo shoot actually went much smoother than I'd expected with a two-year-old who usually has no interest in {and actually tries to avoid} the camera {Best Moment!}...but after rain was predicted all week, it actually turned out to be unseasonably {ridiculously} HOTTT, and we nearly sweat to death in our fall clothes! A BIG thanks to Emily Ann Photography for working with us and squeezing all of our photo needs into one session. We can't wait to see the pics! Here are few preview rough-edit photos from our session...

Nursery: Huston is officially 100% moved out of the nursery and upstairs into his "big boy room," so we can fully focus on personalizing and making the nursery perfect for Baby Sterling! I did go through all of H's teeny tiny clothes and picked what I think will work for Sterling {opposite seasons :(}, so all of that is freshly washed and hanging in his closet. It's crazy how you forget just how tiny newborns are until you look at the little clothes.

Movement: This little guy is VERY.ACTIVE! He moves around more than Huston ever did, if memory serves me right! He's big enough now that when he moves, you can clearly see {and feel} it from the outside. I was holding Huston perched on top of the bump the other day when "Brudder" gave a hard kick/jab. H didn't know what to think....but kept saying, "What's that, Momma?"

Wedding Rings:  On...most of the time. They seemed to be cutting off the circulation in my fingers earlier this week, so I left them at home one morning when I went to work. I was able to get them on easily after work though so I'm thinking the swelling might have something to do with the crazy weather changes/humidity we've been having rather than solely due to pregnancy.

Belly Button: In.

Looking Forward To: Our sonogram OB appointment next week {always excited to see the little guy on the screen}! Because my amniotic fluid levels were a little high at 30-week sono, Dr. Jacoby wants to check on it again. Since he didn't seem to be too concerned about it, I'm excited to get another little look at this babe before he makes his debut into the world!
