Bump-date: 35 Weeks

How far along: 35 weeks

Baby’s size: a bunch of carrots? That's a really poor indicator, I think. Personally, he feels gigantic.

Sleep: some nights I'm falling asleep on the couch at 8:30 PM, some nights I feel wide awake at bed time - it varies.

Loving: carrot cake with cream cheese icing, the burger and fries from Five Guys I had last week that totally hit the spot, Chik-Fil-A lemonade, apple and pumpkin pie

Loathing: not being able to go for seconds at Thanksgiving dinner, the thought of eating a whole lot more turkey (we ended up with a lot of leftovers!), my commute into work

Movement: no change - still wiggly as ever. Getting a little violent from time to time... it's typical to hear me say "you're hurting meee" to no one in particular. He knows it's directed at him. He is definitely running out of space, and letting me know!

Symptoms: I had my first "I'm in labor and it's never going to end" dream... let's hope that one doesn't come true! Also, I appear to have developed pregnancy-induced acid reflux, and I think it might kill me. That is one really lovely symptom. I've been noticing more round ligament pain and some lower back pain - generally, I've just reached the "this isn't really fun anymore" phase.

Wedding rings: I think we may have seen their final days... just saw someone else have to get theirs cut off, and I would definitely not like to risk that, so I might just call it quits for the next few weeks. Sorry, C!

Husband: is a gem for doing things like going to the store at 8 PM on Saturday night to get me TUMS and other assorted medication in search of a relief to the reflux, and also for encouraging me to take it easy and rest between strenuous tasks (such as loads of laundry. HA!).

Can't wait for: Christmas-cookie-baking-day with my mama! We are having our annual baking day this weekend and I'm really excited. I do love cookies!
