35 Weeks and Counting!

I have not blogged this entire pregnancy!  Such a slacker!  So, here it is, an update on my pregnancy.  Let me start by saying, pregnancy in your EARLY 30's is MUCH more difficult than pregnancy in your EARLY 20's!  This could be attributed to many factors, ie. multiple children to chase around.  Whatever it is, I don't like it...though I have tried to enjoy it since I KNOW it will be my last!

Her Size:  The kids, Josh, and I read about Nia every Sunday night.  They REALLY look forward to this, and if I forget, they are quick to remind me.  This week she is a Cantaloupe!!  We have been tracking her since she was a poppyseed.

How Far Along:  35 Weeks!!  What is funny about this, is our Sunday update is the only thing that makes me remember how far along I am.  When I was pregnant with Malakai, I knew till the DAY!!  This one, ummmm, I'd say give or take a week :)

Total Weight Gain:  I think I am at about 40lbs.  I gained 65 with Malakai and about 45 with Leila.  Looks like this one might be in the middle.

Sleep:  Non-existent!!  Poor Josh!  I have multiple fans surrounding our bed, about 100 pillows, and I make awful sounds while sleeping.  The bathroom trips are out of control as well.  I'm a stomach sleeper and the fact I can's sleep on my stomach has bothered me the entire pregnancy.  It is what it is.

Maternity Clothes:  At this point, it is whatever I can fit in.  I wore a lot of non-maternity shirts (thank you belly bands) in the beginning, but at this point, it's hideous maternity ware.  My favorite articles are probably my non-maternity VS Yoga comfy!

Food Cravings:  I haven't really had many the entire pregnancy.  I am usually starving and nothing sounds good.  Lately though, it has been watermelon.

Food Aversions:  Anything with red-sauce as the Heart Burn is unbearable!

Symptoms I HAVE: Lots of movement from Nia (which I love), massive heartburn, way more pelvic pressure than I remember with the 2, and tolerating a very short fuse.  My poor employees!  I try to make the best of it at work, but the fuse is just way too short.  I have found that taking a walk around the parking lot helps...especially since our weather has been so nice!

Doctor's Appointment:  I go October 5th and start every week after that.  They have been pretty UN-eventful.  For those that haven't heard, we scheduled Nia's c-section for November 1!!!

Activities:  I have been more active with this pregnancy than any of the previous!  Sand Volleyball just wrapped up, had a summer filled of softball, and continue to play indoor Volleyball.  Lots of fun!!  Although, I think I am beginning to make my teammates a little nervous.

What I'm looking forward to:  Lets be honest....drinking.  This doesn't even need an explanation.  The challenge of getting the prego weight off, and a break from work, while I'm home with the precious little one.

What I miss:  Being able to bend over without GRUNTING!

That about wraps it all up in a nutshell!
