The Baby Belly-Week 35

Our Baby-to-be is getting bigger and I can definitely distinguish the little body parts as they poke and prod my belly from the inside. As I say often, I cannot believe we've come this far, this fast. This pregnancy really has flown by. Although I've had lots of aches and pains recently, I'm cherishing every little movement that Baby E makes...even the ones that hurt! I keep telling Big Daddy to remind me of how I feel right now when we talk about having another one in a couple of years. It has really been difficult to be a full-time SAHM to Muff and be pregnant. Once you add in the whole nearly-single thing that's been going on for the past few weeks it just gets worse. I try so hard to do all the things that I've always done with The Muffin, but it hasn't been happening lately.
I now have stretch marks on each side of my belly button, as well as two little ones right above my c-section scar. Needless to say, I don't like these stretch marks, but it doesn't really matter in the long run. I keep saying that I think this baby will arrive before the due date (June 7) and I feel like I'm already carrying a giant! The Muffin weighed in at 8 pounds and 8 ounces, so I'm anxious to see this one's weight. I think we'll be getting an estimate at the 36 week appointment and we'll also be having another ultrasound. Please say a prayer that Baby E is healthy and that everything looks okay.
My mom is getting her bag packed and we have our preliminary plan in place for what happens if I go into labor on my own. My bag is sitting in the nursery, ready to go as well. No matter what, it won't be long before Baby E makes a debut.

So exciting! You seem so ready! Hang in there, stay positive, imagine holding her in your arms, with Maggie looking on from one side, and your hubby from the other. :) June 2 is my sister's birthday. :)That would be a good day!

You're moving right along. I remember you encouraging me to get my bags packed and it wasn't long at all after I got them packed that I was headed to the hospital. Packing is my least favorite thing!

This pregnancy HAS really flown by! I can't believe the end is so near. I definitely want to be on the call/email/text list of people to let know when you go into labor! You look great!!! I know at this stage you don't feel like you look great, but you really do!! And to me, you don't look that big to be 35 weeks! But then again maybe I am comparing you to me...I was huge from about 17 weeks with Joshua!!
