35 Weeks Pregnant

How far along?  35 weeks 1 day
Size of baby: as big as a coconut!!!. 5 ish lbs nearly 18 inches from head to toe
What is the baby up to this week?: hearing is fully developed, won't grow much longer but will continue to gain chubbyness :-)
Total weight gain/loss? 145lb (137 before pregnancy)
Maternity clothes? of course, even some of those maternity shirts barely fit these days, I'm getting quite large
Stretch marks? fingers crossed not yet.. stay away!
Sleep? sleeping better some nights than others, I still wake up super often but can manage about 3 hours of rest at a time.
Best moment last week? a stranger telling me I was the most beautiful mom-to-be that she'd ever seen, certainly made my day!
Movement? oh yes, girlfriend is crowding my rib cage and doesn't care what time of day it is, baby likes to dance, I have a feeling this active one will come out squirming.
Food cravings? corn on the cob! banana bread and chocolate weird enough. (usually I'm a vanilla or peanut butter flavor kind of a gal) I read that if you eat chocolate throughout your pregnancy you are more likely to give birth to a baby who is less ornery and more easily soothed.. we shall see if that is true, I certainly consume enough Dove chocolates daily.
Gender? Pink, glitter, hearts, hairbows, bikinis, dresses and everything GIRL!
Labor signs? Nope not that I can notice, I may have had mild contractions the other night, but it can be hard to tell the difference between that and gas pain, also I've been getting Braxton Hicks contractions quite a bit more, most of the time they aren't painful
Belly button in/out? oh so OUT
What I miss:  a glass of wine! not fussing over what I have to wear and just throwing on whatever I want from my closet
What I am looking forward to: our last ultrasound in 2 weeks! Hopefully they will do another 3d 
Milestones: I'm not as nervous anymore since we've made it to a safe week mark in this pregnancy, now we wait!
Other Symptoms: having to pee ALL the time. aches and pains down below and cramping in my stomach occasionally. waking up in the middle of the night starving to death.
