271. 35 week pregnancy update!

Untitled

I swear I only wrote last week's post yesterday, time has taken on a new level of speed! AND at 35 weeks (+5) I'm so nearly 36 weeks! I still think that he's going to come early, so (hopefully!) in FOUR weeks he'll be here! Earlier, Colin was talking about going away with work for two nights, and my Mum pointed out that it would be better for him to go after the baby arrives, as she could always come and stay with me after, but if he's four hours away and something happens really early, he could end up missing everything! Which came as a bit of a shock to me to be honest, even though I thought I was prepared and ready! I guess anytime from here on out he could make his appearance really! Eeek!

Kiddo's the size of a coconut - He's about 17.2 to 18.7 inches. From here on out, he won't get much longer, but he's plumping up. He's now about 4.2 to 5.8 pounds, and he'll put on a pound or more of baby fat before birth.

I often wonder about this baby; how big he'll be, what colour hair he'll have, whether he'll be anything like Daniel or the complete opposite! My Nan's convinced he'll have tons of black hair, but I think I'm going to have another mini Colin on my hands! Daniel is so easy going and independent (most of the time - he had way too much sugar today and it made him into a right grump!!) and I wonder whether his brother will be similar or, like everyone seems to be warning me will happen, he'll be a little more difficult! Please, someone tell me that isn't always the case?!

Sleep is very hit and miss at the moment, sometimes I sleep like a baby and others I find it so uncomfortable and difficult! I have developed a cruel habit of waking up at 4am and my mind being inundated with thoughts! Plans for the nursery, shopping lists, nightmares, to-do lists, my 'notes' in my phone is getting pretty full, and so are my Pinterest boards!

My appetite has subsided a little, thankfully! I was getting a little concerned about losing the baby weight! I wish I was one of those 'fit' preggos, but the truth is I wasn't even that active beforehand! My back has been pretty painful this week too, so my plan of doing a little yoga has been rain checked!

I think I've rambled enough tonight, and Colin's gone out to a birthday party, so I'm going to have some cheeky chocolate and watch something awful on TV!

Lots of Love
