How Far Along: 35 Weeks (Last Friday) - Today I am actually 35weeks, 5 days

Size of baby: Baby is the size of a large cantaloupe (21 inches long, 6 lbs.)

The Bad: Going to the bathroom every 30 minutes... especially when we are out shopping or walking around... poor Josh!

Maternity Clothes: All maternity clothes at this point... I am looking forward to going back to some of my old wardrobe soon :).  

Gender: BOY - getting so excited to meet and see him.

Sleep: Sleep is difficult - get up every 2-3 hours for the bathroom and toss and turn a lot trying to get comfortable... poor Josh again...

Movement: Still lots of movement - I feel like he is running out of room! I had a Doctor's appointment this morning and they were monitoring his heart rate for a few minutes (which was great, BTW).  After a couple of minutes, he started kicking the monitor pad, almost like he did not like the pressure of it pushing on him.  It was pretty funny.  The kicks sounded very loud on the monitor - I think he was mad.  

What I miss: Still miss sleeping on my back... soon enough!

Cravings: I really miss eating ice cream or drinking regular soda whenever I want to... not sure if that is a craving or just a sugar withdrawal... (I am having to watch my sugar intake.)

Symptoms: Growing belly, still a little heartburn or random hiccup here or there... from me that is.  He gets hiccups a lot too now.  

Best Moment this week: The doctor said at my appointment this week that I am already 2cm dilated - she said that I should either have a relatively easy delivery when we induce on October 1 (which is great news) or he may even come a little early (which is slightly scary, yet exciting!!)  We are both getting so excited to meet our little man!

We still have a few things left to do but we are getting there... I am all packed for the hospital and my Mom and I did lots of laundry this weekend when she visited.  We are just about ready to bring this baby home - now we need to install that car seat!

So excited for you, Rebecca!! I can't wait to see pictures of your sweet boy, and I can't believe you're so close!

p.s. I still read your blog regularly, it's just too difficult to comment from my phone and this is a very very rare thing for me to actually be reading blogs on the laptop :)

So exciting! I don't know if they do this in Huntsville, but in Birmingham you could go to the local fire department and they would install the car seat for you. They found that in many car accidents children were hurt because seats weren't installed properly so they started an outreach program to address it. You may want to call the local fire station and see if they do anything like that in Huntsville.
