My Journal

35 weeks

I can't even believe that tomorrow I'll be 35 weeks. I only have 35 days left, WTH! We are ready and have everything pretty much in order. I told Chad we'll pack the hospital bag and install the carseat base next weekend at 36 weeks. He's losing his mind with excitement and I have to convince him sometimes to cool it. I think it's very cute.

Everything with Baby Chase and me is great. I passed the three hour glucose test, my blood pressure is perfect and I've only gained 15 lbs (and I think a lot of that is water weight). The two negatives I've dealt with this pregnancy are swelling and carpal tunnel. My feet and legs are pretty swollen and there's nothing I seem to be able to do about it, and due to the swelling, my carpal tunnel is getting so bad that I have numbness in my right hand all the time now. Honestly though, if that's the worst i have to deal with, I will gladly take it. Chase finally flipped head down on Sunday, and I think he's finally that way to stay. He moves a lot, but hasn't done anymore somersaults, and I can feel his head very low. He's actually making me waddle a little. I'll have my GBS test and my first cervical check next Friday, so we'll know for sure what's goIng on then.

Over all I have very much enjoyed my pregnancy. I love feeling him squirm, I love just knowing he's in there, I love getting all his little things ready, but most of all I love seeing how much my husband loves our baby already! It makes me feel so lucky to have such an amazing guy, and how lucky Chase will be to have him as his daddy. I know I'll be sad when it's over, and I'm already looking forward to my next pregnancy lol.

Great update! So glad things are going well with you and Chase. When he gets extra squirmy, you should take video of your belly moving. I took a bunch with Oscar and I love that I have that to look at....it's my favorite part of pregnancy. That sense of never being alone because little guy is always with you, squirming away. :)

So happy for you guys, it flew by, right? And it’s beautiful that your husband is the way he is about it, I have a sensitive guy too, I catch him teary eyed during kid cartoons lol. I hope it goes smooth from here on out, you guys deserve it.

Yay! I'm right in front of you. This weekend makes 36wks for me which is when we are installing the car seat and packing for the hospital and kids bag (I pack a separate bag with change of clothes and things for my older kids in case they have to spend the night with relatives). Its great that you are having a smooth and enjoyable pregnancy! Praying your delivery goes just as well :)

35 weeks yay!!! I can’t believe it this last trimester is flying by (in my opinion anyway LOL) I had the worst carpal tunnel when I was pregnant with Bear and the only thing that helped was wearing those wrist braces constantly even when I slept it was super annoying and I feel for you! I’m hoping to avoid that this go around but I doubt I will. the only relief was that as soon as I gave birth it completely went away. I’m so excited for you and Chad! Bring on baby chase! So glad things are going so well
