35 weeks, 1 day – 34 days to go…


Capri, mom and baby bump

How Far Along: 35 weeks, 1 day!
Size of baby: 5 1/4 lbs and  18 inches

Heart rate at Last Doctor’s Visit (3/17): 150

Measuring at Last Doctor’s Visit (3/17):  35 weeks (about a week ahead)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: +Maternity Clothes: going to have to up this to 32 pounds…went to the doctor last week.  Definitely wearing Maternity Clothes…I have been for pretty much the whole time.

Gender: It’s a GIRL; name will be chosen when we see her!

More name suggestions from some friends that I liked:  Delia, Acacia (a-kay-sha), Signe, Estella, Leena, Imogene, Nevaeh

Please – keep suggesting names…we really don’t decide until we meet her…

Movement: Still crazy but I don’t think I’m noticing it as much since I’ve been much more active now that I’m feeling better.

Here’s my thoughts on baby moving.  I LOVE when she moves because it reassures me that she’s doing okay in there.  BUT it is a bit creepy to see my belly just moving around…reminds me of ‘Alien’. 

Sleep: pretty good still..knocking on wood…

What I miss: champagne, beer, being able to walk without pain

Cravings: canned pears, whipped cream, bacon

Symptoms: heartburn, terrible hips, swollen ankles, emotional, an enlarged stomach, sleeping on my back

Best Moment of the Week: Meeting my brother at the Cheesecake Factory for a great dinner and of course some cheesecake to take home (I only ordered two pieces…it was hard though).  Then we went to his house to hang out for a bit and the girls were AMAZING – so nice to have well behaved children :)

Crazy Idea:  I have decided to host an Easter Egg Hunt for the mom’s group I attend – PB&J on Friday, April 22nd – yup, that’s 3 days before I’m due…  Any other mom’s and kids are more than welcome to attend as well..it’s in my orchard!


Cedi giving mom’s baby bump a kiss (Capri’s in there too but she’s behind Cedi so you can’t really see her…)


  1. A baby bump kiss! That's just too cute. Hang in there Kim.

  2. You are just beautiful! Congrats on your pending bundle of sugar & spice!
