35 weeks

How far along? 35 weeks and 2 days

How big is the baby? About 5 and 1/4 lbs, 18 in. (but I wouldn't be surprised if she is already bigger than that!)

Are you in maternity clothes? Exclusively. Well, that and Chad's clothes.

How do you feel physically? I have to conserve my energy because lately I seem to tire so easily. I'm also having all kind of aches and pains that my doctor says are normal (didn't have that with Graham!)

Sleep? Napping or at least resting everyday, sleeping well at night except for having to get up so often. 

Miss anything? I miss my old energy level!

Feeling movement of the baby? Yes although she is no longer turning, just kicking, etc. 

Food cravings? Sweets, not as hungry as I was.

Gender of the baby? It's a GIRL! 

Mood/thoughts? Lots of mixed emotions. I am SO EXCITED to take care of a newborn baby again - my very own! This week I've been washing, folding, and organizing all of Molly's things and that has been so much fun! I am also feeling some sadness about my son: knowing that this baby will be a tough adjustment for him. Knowing that he will no longer get my undivided attention, which he has enjoyed all his life. I also have some anxiety about my delivery. In case you didn't know, Graham's delivery was a traumatic experience in which I almost bled to death. I am "at risk" for the same complication to occur again. And even though we have taken many precautions to prevent it, I can't help but wonder, "what if?" Please join us in praying for a safe delivery, with a healthy baby and mom. 

By the way, my doctor has decided to induce my labor one week early (unless of course she comes before then) on November 20th - two days before Thanksgiving. That's in FOUR WEEKS people! :) We are hoping that Molly will not be as big as Graham was (9 lbs 15 oz, 22 in.).
