Week 35

Week: Thirty-five (and one)
Size: Honeydew Melon
Feeling: Inspired!
Symptoms: Something's starting to happen in there. Braxton Hicks galore.
Maternity Clothes: Living in maternity dresses, but rocking a regular tankini. It's a ridiculous sight to see, friends.
Sleep: It involves a pillow mountain, but it's still happening.
Gender: Still my sweet girl.
Movement: Yes. The OB even commented on her craziness this week.
What I Miss: Sleeping on my back.
What I Want: Watermelon.
Best Moment this Week: Finally starting to get ready! When I realized that hitting 35 weeks meant 35 days on the countdown, I knew it was time to get to work. This week we picked a paint color (PPG Seascape Green for curious minds), a lady from my church finished Nora's quilt and crib skirt, and I ordered her crib sheet. On Thursday my mom came out and made quick work of sorting/eliminating much of the boys' toys and then storing them neatly in Nathan's room. We set up the toddler bed, moved Owen's name above it and a boys' paradise was complete. This afternoon I will celebrate Baby Nora at my shower and then begin transforming the nursery. Here's a peek at the first official item for Nora's room:

PS: Another "best moment" happened at my 34-week checkup. I'm not dilated! I was very surprised and pleased to hear that. No bed rest, no change in activity, nothing. I'm just going to keep on keeping on and hope this baby bakes as long as she needs to. I am moving into weekly appointments now, just because of my history. Every Wednesday until Nora makes her debut!
