Mommy Monday {35 Weeks}

At my last weekly OB appointment I was diagnosed with Polyhydramnios, which is an increased level of amniotic fluids. It's not an ideal situation, but my fluid levels are only "mildly" elevated at AFI 26.5. They are checking my levels by Ultrasound every week and monitoring me closely. My doctor doesn't seem all to concerned, so I'm trying to not get stressed out about it. As long as I feel baby moving around, which she is consistently, I'm good. The only good thing about this, is that I now am getting weekly Ultrasounds! So glad to be able to see baby on a weekly basis. 

Lennon stood right in front of me, posed just like Mommy and said "cheese"!  

How far along?  35 weeks, 4 days
Total weight gain/measurements: I'm up a total of 30 lbs so far and maintaining that weight for a couple weeks now! 
Maternity clothes: Dresses, Maternity Jeans, and Yoga pants are my jam right now. I also only have about 4 shirts that fit me, so those are on repeat.  
Stretch marks: None to report and hoping to keep it that way. I'm lathering my belly in Burt's Bee's Mama Bee. I have added The Honest Co. Belly Balm and just love the smell of it. I'm currently using both of these to make sure my belly is nice and moisturized. 
Sleep: Sleep? What is sleep? My back aches so bad most nights that I really don't get any sleep at all. 
Exercise: I'm still going to my prenatal yoga classes and man is it worth it. I feel SOOOOO much better after my Yoga sessions. I wish I could go everyday. 
Best moment this week: Due to my Polyhydramnios, I get a weekly ultrasound and get to see baby! It's reassuring that she is happy and healthy in there.  
Miss anything? Exercising, uninterrupted sleep, and a back that doesn't ache.   
Movement:  She is still most active around 9-11pm, hence another reason I don't sleep well. 
Food cravings: Still CRAVING watermelon and I'm back on my Lemon ice kick. 
Anything making you queasy or sick? Bell Peppers and Celery!
Gender: Girl #2!
Labor signs: I'm still having Braxton Hicks, but I'm not dilated at all. 
Belly button in or out? In, but sneaking it's way out. It's out sometimes depending on where baby is located in my belly. 
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: I've been pretty moody lately.  
Looking forward to:  The end of school so I can relax a little!

Until next time!
