baby update ~ 35 weeks

Oh boy. I don't know how other women do it. I still have five weeks to go, and I'm pooped! I get tired and out of breath so easily these days. (Thank you, uterus, for jamming up under my lungs.) I haven't slept through the night in at least four months, and I have to go to the bathroom every two hours or so.

I live in search of AC and fans... I don't go anywhere that doesn't have them!

 If I was still in school, I'd cry. Women who work until their due date are better women than I am.

I had a doctor's appointment this morning. Baby Girl is head down, heartbeat is strong, dilation is zero, everything looks great! I'm at the point where OB appointments are weekly, and I have an ultrasound next week.

My craftiness has almost disappeared... I partially pieced a mini quilt last week, and it languishes on a chair, waiting to be ironed. I have no desire to drag out the iron or sewing machine to work on it. Maybe I could crochet instead?

  1. Sounds like things are well. I understand about the sleeping. I didn't sleep for the last 2 trimesters! Crochet sounds like a good distraction.
    It was hard to teach at the end. And it was the first two weeks of school and you know how that is!! :) I was so glad Ruffin was two weeks early. I don't think I would've made it much longer!
    Hang in there - you're almost to the best part - holding your baby!! :D
