35 weeks!

Only 5 weeks left! Don't mind my pajama shorts in this picture!

From Babycenter:

Your baby doesn't have much room to maneuver now that she's over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds(like a honeydew melon).

Because it's so snug in your womb, she isn't likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number of times she kicks should remain about the same. Her kidneys are fully developed now, and her liver can process some waste products. Most of her basic physical development is now complete — she'll spend the next few weeks putting on weight. Your uterus — which was entirely tucked away inside your pelvis when you conceived — now reaches up under your rib cage. If you could peek inside your womb, you'd see that there's more baby than amniotic fluid in there now. Your ballooning uterus is crowding your other internal organs, too, which is why you probably have to urinate more often and may be dealing with heartburn and other gastrointestinal distress.

How far along: 35 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: 30 pounds so far, right on track!
Maternity clothes? That's all I can wear! I tried to fit into some regular tank tops but they don't cover that growing belly!
Stretch marks? Just on my stomach!
Sleep: I don't sleep through the night, either a leg cramp wakes me up or I have to pee! I love my afternoon naps!
Best moment this week: Her bedroom is about 90% complete!
Movement: She loves to move around and kick, mostly now in early mornings. Some of her kicks hurt!
Food cravings: Mac and Cheese
Food aversions: None
Gender: Girl!!
Labor Signs: I thought I had some last week, but she just was stuck in my rib cage!
Belly Button in or out? Innie, but really open
What I am looking forward to: Our next ultrasound!
