35 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How far along? 35 weeks

Baby Size: According to my BabyBump app, Harper is about the size of a honeydew melon. She should be around 18 inches and weigh approximately 5.25 pounds.

Total Weight Gain: I go back to the doctor on Friday but I'm thinking around 30 pounds total.

Maternity Clothes: For the most part, I've stuck to maternity clothes this week. They're just more comfortable. But I still lounge around in my pre-maternity yoga pants and some of my bigger t-shirts. 

Stretch Marks? Not a one! I'm hoping since I've made it this far without any that I'm home free! 

Sleep: I've been sleeping great lately. Part of it is because I'm on spring break and have been nesting non-stop so by the end of the day, this girl is exhausted. The other part I think is due to the fact that my husband is now officially on day shift and is not working nights anymore and I sleep so much better when he's at home sleeping in the bed next to me.

Best Moment This Week: We have quite a few things to celebrate this week! One being that Kevin and I are currently on our last vacation before Harper arrives. I'll be blogging about our babymoon later this week when we get back home. The second exciting thing thats happened is that we finally ordered Harper's outfit for her newborn pictures. I worked with an amazing lady on etsy who is creating just what the Hubs and I envisioned for her to wear. I'd love to tell you about it but I want it to be a surprise so you'll have to wait!! The last thing that I'm super excited about is getting more items checked off of our "Before Harper Arrives" to-do list. At this point, we just might have everything accomplished before she arrives! We only have a few more things to finish and our goal is to get most of those done this weekend. This makes for one very happy preggo mama! 

Miss Anything? Still missing my normal looking legs and feet. They're so large these days it's embarrassing to wear short dresses or skirts haha

Movement: Harper's movements have slowed down a lot this week. I'm guessing she's running out of room. At first it concerned me but she still gives me a quick kick or jab here and there to let me know she's still hanging in there. 

Food Cravings: Still just craving ice cold drinks. The icier the better! This particular week, it's been ice cold sweet tea, Sundrop, and Coke. 

Gender: A Girl {Harper Londyn Holt}

Labor Signs: Just Braxton Hicks contractions here and there

Symptoms: Still the usual. My acid reflux has gotten better during the day but has began to hit me at night. It usually strikes around midnight or so.  I've started chewing gum in my sleep (not sure how safe that is!) but it's definitely helped keep the reflux down and allows me to get back to sleep without having any more problems throughout the night. My legs, ankles, and feet are still swelling. My right one is still continuing to swell much more than my left. By the end of the day it's so swollen that I can't put any weight on it and it's starting to feel bruised. In addition, I can now only wear sandals because my other shoes are too tight. Thank goodness for warmer weather! And did I mention it's becoming practically impossible to buckle and tie my shoes... like seriously! I need someone to help me if they don't slip on lol

Belly Button In or Out? In and it's just about closed over. I give it a week, two tops and it'll be completely gone!

Wedding Rings On or Off? On 

Mood: The closer I get to my due date the more anxious and excited I am to meet our little girl! 

Looking Forward to: We have lots of exciting things happening this week! I'm looking forward to our doctor's appointment on Friday. We'll find out for sure what position little Miss Harper doodle is in. For most of my pregnancy she's been frank breech (meaning her butt's down and her feet are over her head). If she's still breech, we'll be going on and scheduling her c-section which makes me excited since I can choose her birthday and know when she's coming. Also, on Friday, after our doctor's appointment, we'll be taking our maternity pictures as long as the weather cooperates. Then on Sunday, we'll be having our last and final shower. This will be our biggest shower yet as it's being given by my family and all of our church is invited. I can't wait to see all the goodies Harper is going to end up with!


  1. You're so close! Enjoy these last few weeks as just you and the hubby. Be sure you go out to eat as much as you can! :)

    I'm hosting a custom made infant/toddler/children's jacket. It'd be perfect for Harper! :)

  2. I Hope your having fun on your baby moon!

  3. Ooooh how fun! You have so much going on right now! I can't wait to hear about your shower and all the goodies Harper gets :) We have our 34 week appointment on Friday and my mom gets to come with. Enjoy your babymoon and checking out the rest of your to-do list!


Hearing from you ladies always make my day, so please let me know you stopped by!
