Mommy Monday {35 weeks}

I know I say this every week, but I honestly cannot believe how fast the time is going. We are currently in the thick of our State testing, we only have 5.5 weeks left of school, and there's only 5 more weeks left until this baby girl joins us. I'm starting to get increasingly more uncomfortable and have found that my sleep is being interrupted more and more by trips to the bathroom. I'm also having some crazy, vivid dreams. We had our Maternity pictures taken on Saturday and we had our childbirth class on Sunday. I'm starting to feel ready {well kind of}!

How far along? 35 weeks!
Total weight gain: I'm up 28 lbs now.. Ugh. 
Maternity clothes: Dresses, dresses, and more dresses! 
Stretch marks: I have been forgetting to mention that I have small stretch marks on both of my butt cheeks. If that's the only place they are going to happen, I'm completely fine with that! I'm still using my Honest Co. Organic Belly Balm and Nivea Q10 Plus Skin Firming Lotion every day to try and avoid them everywhere else!
Workouts: I have started back up with my prenatal yoga and have been stretching and doing squats at home. 
Sleep: Like I said earlier, I'm not getting the most consistent sleep as I'm having to use the bathroom about 4 times a night. I'm still using my Boppy Pregnancy Wedge to try and keep my back aligned. 
Best moment this week: Getting our Maternity pictures taken. I can't wait to see them!   
Miss anything? My back and hip not hurting. I know I say something different every week in this category, but I really can't complain about this pregnancy. I miss sleep every couple of nights and my back hurts every couple of weeks. My chiropractor is amazing and after I get an adjustment I'm all set! 
Movement: She is still consistently moving, thank goodness! I've even started to feel her hiccuping {which is the cutest thing ever}! 
Food cravings: This weeks cravings include Chocolate Almond Milk. I could drink several glasses in one sitting! 
Anything making you queasy or sick? Not a thing!  
Gender: Girl!
Labor signs: Just having Braxton Hicks every once in a while. 
Belly button in or out? Still in!
Wedding rings on or off? I put my engagement ring back on for our pictures on Saturday and it's been on since. My swelling has been pretty minimal lately and I'm hoping it stays that way. 
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy!
Baby Arrival Guesstimate: After the dreams I had last night, I'm hoping she stays in there for 5 more weeks! Your mind really does play tricks on you. I'm still thinking around May 28th. 
Looking forward to: One of my friend's Bridal Shower on Saturday! 

Until next time!
