Yesterday was my 35/35. That means I was 35 weeks pregnant, and I only had 35 days of my pregnancy left (hopefully less!)
How far along am I? 35 weeks 1 day
Total weight gain? 34 pounds, I think I've come to terms with the weight. :(
Sleep? Sleep has not been great for the last few days. I think I wake up worrying about things and then I can't go back to sleep. Hopefully, it will get better.
How am I feeling? I am still feeling good, just getting a little anxious. I don't like not having a plan or knowing what is is store. I hope to get some more answers on Monday. I have started cramping alot, but I have been reading that this is normal.
Best moment this week? I think hearing that Logan will be coming early was the best moment this week. I can't wait to see him and finally be able to hold him.
Movement? He is still punching and kicking me. He loves to stick his butt out right by my ribs. He had the hickups this morning!
Belly Button? Still in
Labor signs? cramping and lower back pain
Food cravings? desserts and sweets
What am I looking forward to? Celebrating Mackenzie's first birthday tonight and bringing in the new year. 2010 is going to be an awesome year for our family.
Milestones? From now on baby's growth will be mostly in the plumping up department-though he won't get much longer, he will continue putting on weight.

How far along am I? 33 weeks
Total weight gain? I respectfully decline to answer this question anymore :) We'll just say mom and baby are growing fine!
Sleep? Still pretty good, except last night I got a major Charlie Horse and had to jump out of bed and run around the room.
How am I feeling? I think I am getting a cold or maybe just sinus stuff. I am a pretty tired, but fighting through it to get everything done. My ankles and feet are swelling a little, so I am trying to drink more water and get off my feet, which doesn't happen often. :)
Best moment this week? The girls from PAMPA, the doctor's office where I used to work, threw a shower for me on Sunday. It was really nice and it was good to see everyone. Mimi got Logan his stroller, so now we have all of our big things, and I think we are set on everything for now. I'm sure there's more that we will need, but I think we have what we need to bring him home. Also, it was Chris's birthday on Tuesday and we had a really nice dinner at one of his favorite restaurants. His parents and I got him a new flat screen for the bedroom. I am hoping to be able to enjoy it over Winter Break.
Movement? He is moving like crazy, during the day and at night. I think he is trying to say, "Hey! I'm running out of room in here!" I love feeling him kick and wiggle!
Belly Button? Still in :)
Labor signs? I think I have had a few Braxton Hicks, but still not quite sure.
Food Cravings? Nothing I can't live without, maybe cereal and milk?
What am I looking forward to? Seeing Baby Logan again next Tuesday at the 4th 4D ultrasound. This little guy better give me a good shot. We are running out of time! Of course, I am also looking forward to my 2 weeks off! I have plans to get a lot done, but at least I can sleep in a little and stay in comfy clothes.
Milestones? He may grow up to an inch this week! His brain is developing like crazy. Pretty soon, he will be able to coordinate breathing with sucking and swallowing. Also, his bones are hardening, and he's started to keep his eyes open while he's awake.

How far along are you? 32 weeks
Total weight gain? We go to the doctor next Tuesday, maybe 25 or 26 pounds?
Sleep? I am very sleepy all the time. I am sleeping pretty well, but waking up several times and having some crazy dreams.
How am I feeling? Besides the constant heartburn, and being tired, I am feeling pretty well. Hope I continue to feel this good.
Best moment this week? I had my shower at school today and Logan got so many cute things. He got several outfits, blankets, a sound machine, baby gate for the stairs, and several other cute things. I have a great group of co-workers. It was also great to see him on the ultrasound again, although we still didn't get the best pictures. That's okay though, because now we get to see him again in two weeks!
Movement? around 8:45 every night, he decides to have a party in my belly. The other night, I told Chris to put his hand on my belly, and he couldn't believe how much Logan was moving. He said that was the most he had ever felt him move.
Belly Button? Still in :)
Labor signs? Nothing yet, let's hope it stays that way for a while
Food Cravings? I have been craving avocado...Yummy!!!
What am I looking forward to? My last baby shower on Sunday. The girls from PAMPA, the doctor's office where I worked in high school and college, are throwing me a shower. I am so excited to see all the girls again. I am also looking forward to Christmas break coming up in 8 school days, but who's counting? I can't wait to sleep in, get some freezer meals ready, install the car seat and get everything finished up for Logan's arrival.
Milestones? Baby will likely double his weight in the next 8 weeks. He should be settling into a head down position to get ready to enter this world.

We went for our 3rd 4D ultrasound yesterday, and Baby Logan still hasn't moved. He still has his legs up over his head and there was still some cord up by his face. I do feel very lucky that the lady is letting us come back to keep trying. You can see his nose and mouth pretty well, and I have to say he is pretty darn cute already!We are going back on December 22nd to try again!
