Bumpdate: 35 weeks

How big is baby? The size of a coconut! I've wanted to be at the beach all summer so this just sounds relaxing.

Maternity ClothesYep...although I have a few regular dresses that fit.

Stretch Marks: A few small ones on my sides.

Sleep: Some nights are better than others. I've been sleeping through the night better but often up at 5 or 6 am. Better than 3 am! It's also been harder to roll over! I feel ridiculous at times but know it's not going to be getting better for a while. Totally worth it though!

Best moment of the week? Still thrilled with both of my baby showers. I posted about my hometown shower here and will post very soon about my other shower (need to get the pictures). It was fun to go to another doctors appointment too. Is it weird that I still get excited for these?

Movement: I've been playing a lot of music lately, especially when on the computer. She's constantly moving to that, which is fun. I hope she is musical like J and I.

Food cravings: I seriously could have eaten a hamburger every day this week but I didn't.  I actually didn't even have one! The only kind that sounded good was Culver's with everything loaded on it. Homemade did not sound good. If you know me this is big because we don't eat a lot of red meat!

Food aversions: Chicken but we still ate it last night. One of those times where you have to eat and I wasn't giving in to junk food.

Belly button in or out? In...but I can see a light at the end of the tunnel...meaning I can see where it might flatten. This scares me horribly!

What I miss: Nothing really. The weather has cooled down again and I'm so thankful! I definitely have to go to the bathroom all the time which is annoying but I can think of 949230 things that could be worse! {it would be so much better if we had a half bath on the first floor!}

What I'm looking forward to: Going to BuyBuyBaby this weekend to get a few things off the registry we didn't get at our showers, finding (hopefully) a chair for the nursery, and spending time with J.

Milestones:  When I was at the doctor yesterday I schedule the rest of my appointments up until my due date. CRAZY!! Only five left!

Nursery: The painting process is slow but coming along. I know everyone is busy right now so I hate to be a pain about it getting painted but I have to go back to school in two weeks and it needs to be done! It should be by this weekend! :)

Classes: Baby care class and tour in August!

Next appointment: August 6th, then I start going weekly!

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: We talk to our doctor about the labor and delivery process at our next appointment. Anything specific I should ask? My big thing is when will I know I need to go to the hospital, especially if my water doesn't break. I know a lot of people have told me, "you'll just know" but I don't want to be there 10 times with false labor! Also I hope she doesn't think we're too crazy with our birth plan! :)
