35 Weeks

How Far Along? 35 weeks and 2 days

Size of Baby:
Canary melon (19-22in, 5.5lbs)

: Sassy little girl

Maternity Clothes:
Still sticking to my rotation of maxi dresses. No one probably cares, but I miss having a little variety to my wardrobe. Also, I finally bought a couple nursing tank tops, bras, and button down pajamas for the hospital.

It’s still unfinished but that will be taken care of this weekend hopefully. We have floating shelves and will get those hung and we’ll put all the bedding in the crib. I finally got my drawer organizers for the dresser, since I insisted we couldn’t live without them, so we can wash all the clothes and put them away.

Umm… I think she is starting to get uncomfortable in there. She seems to stretch and push a lot, but then she gets kicking and it’s really un-fun for mama here. It’s like she is frustrated about the confide space. It’s very easy to see her move from the outside now too.

I know you are tired of hearing it, but y’all, the swelling in my feet and hands is no joke. I had to buy a bigger pair of sandals, because none of my shoes fit. I’ve tried drinking lots of water with lemon, sitting with my feet up, and soaking in an Epsom salt bath. Also when I wake up in the morning my right hand is always completely numb. It takes a good 30 minutes for me to get full feeling back in it. Then it happens randomly throughout the day. So weird.

I thought a friend of mine, who is due a week before me, was going to kill me when she asked this week how many times I get up in the middle of the night and I said “usually none, but sometimes once.” Bless baby girl for not resting on my bladder and letting me sleep before she gets here.

Banana bread. And anyone who knows me knows I HATE bananas, like can’t stand the smell or texture of them. Period! However I accidently picked up a banana nut muffin at a function recently and couldn’t get my mind off of it. Thankfully I remembered that Carolina Charm posted this banana bread recipe and it did not disappoint.

What I Miss:
I had my last major event for work this week and it felt so nice to have that in the books as a success. However it was weird to not be able to run around like I usually do and having to hand off tasks instead of doing them myself. I’m sure this is great practice for letting go of control once baby gets here, but it’s a hard transition. Here is a picture from the event. I loved being in Charleston, but that humidity and heat wiped me out. 

Best Moment This Week:
We came home after running errands last weekend to our stroller/carrier sitting on our front porch. Both Andy and I were super excited about it and ripped into the box as soon as we got in the house. Andy put it together and then we both took turns putting it together and then folding it up. The carrier is definitely heavier than I thought, but if it protects baby girl than I’m good with it. Bring on the toned arms! 
P.S. Camden was not thrilled about the stroller and all the attention that wasn’t going toward him. Hopefully he will be so taken with Anna Grace that he won’t notice the attention shift. No worries though, Andy and I have already chatted about how to make sure the pup still gets enough love once the baby is here.

Looking Forward To:
I don’t know if it’s too early, but I’ve started making a mental list of stuff to pack in our hospital bags. We also started stocking up on things from my “must do before baby gets here” list and can’t wait to have everything done.


  1. Eeee so soon! Sounds like you're about ready with the nursery and stroller! Funny about the pooch...we keep saying the same thing - Mills will be taken care of just like before! We shall see! ;)

  2. Oh so excited for you, Sarah!! You're getting so close now! It's exciting that you're starting to make that mental hospital bag list. It won't be long before you're packing it. :) Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! xo

  3. You're getting so close! Only a few more weeks to go :)

  4. You are in the home stretch! We had that combo and it was great.
