Week 35

Baby: Your baby measures about 20.25 inches from head to toe and weighs more than 5.5 pounds. Lungs are almost fully developed, but if born now the baby would probably be put in an incubator. It still doesn’t have enough fat deposits beneath its skin to keep warm outside your womb.

Mom-to-be: Your uterus is about six inches above your navel. By now your weight gain is probably between 24 and 29 pounds. Your doctor will test you for Group B streptococcus bacteria between now and 37 weeks. You may be getting more uncomfortable and not sleeping very well. You also may be getting more anxious about the labor and delivery, and you may even be moodier and more irritable.


Well, besides the horrors of last Tuesday, I have been feeling pretty good, surprisingly good.  No more Braxton Hicks this weekend, and I’m still able to fall back to sleep after I get up to pee the requisite 4+ times a night so I can’t complain.  I don’t think I’m more anxious as much as I’m just plain ready.  The husband and I kept talking about it all weekend – how October’s going to feel like waiting in line and how both of us want to “just do this thing.” 

So now we wait.  For five more weeks. 

Are we there yet?
