How Far Along? 35w2d
Size of baby: Over 5lbs and 18 inches- size of a honeydew melon!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: +17lbs
Maternity Clothes: All maternity clothes – luckily I still have plenty of items that fit and should last through the remainder of my time
Gender: BOY- Gavin Tyler Ramey
Movement: He is still moving a lot- he prefers my right side and is constantly sticking his butt up near the top, it gets very distorted and very hard when he does this, still freaks Jason out.
What I miss: I miss being able to get up off the couch without issues- lol!
Sleep: Getting up multiple times to go potty, but for the most part I’m able to go right back to sleep!
Symptoms: Peeing ALL THE TIME! Fatigue has made a comeback, I’m also experiencing quite a bit of Braxton Hicks and I definitely am not able to breathe as easy as I once did.
Stretch marks: No sign of any stretch marks- moisturizing with this super greasy BB tummy butter TWICE a day!
What I am looking forward to: Hopefully an ultrasound really soon to figure out how big he is!
Belly button (in or out): Mostly out
Milestones: 99% of babies born after 35 weeks require no additional medical assistance because the majority of physical development is COMPLETE!!!
Baby Ramey’s Progress
Your baby doesn't have much room to maneuver now that he's over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds (pick up a honeydew). Because it's so snug in your womb, he isn't likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number of times he kicks should remain about the same. His kidneys are fully developed now, and his liver can process some waste products. Most of his basic physical development is now complete – he'll spend the next few weeks putting on weight.
