35 Weeks

Size of baby: Honeydew Melon ( 5 1/4 lbs and 18 inches)
Total Weight Gain: 28 lbs
Continuing symptoms: Sore feet, frequent bathroom visits, sore hips, braxton hicks.
New symptoms this week:  Feet and hands are getting noticeably more swollen.

Sleep: My back is quite sore after sleeping,  but stretching helps.
Maternity Clothes: I just snagged and ripped a hole in my favourite, brand new sweater. I am so crushed.
What I'm Eating: Very randoms things, I have little desire to actually make meals lately.
Cravings: Cream cheese and sweet chilli triscuits, chocolate cake (thanks to the beauty shown below)

Movement: There is a lot of whole belly shifting going on and often there is constant pressure on a specific spot under my ribs. I think that is the baby's feet!

Other Pregnancy News:

I am officially on maternity leave! My last day of work was Friday, and my coworkers sure spoiled me! Here are some of the things I received:

Two beautiful bouquets of flowers!

This amazing chocolate cake. Seriously the best cake I have ever eaten. I want to order another one just for myself.  We also had lunch from Kaffe Haus that day. The rest of the week my friend Peggy and I had lunch at a different place in Gimli. She called it "food week" and we ate at the chip truck, Beach Boy and Subway. It was deliciously fun.

I had to leave a bit early to go sign papers for the farm in the city, so I left my car in Gimli. When I got back at night one of my coworkers wrote this on my car! 

I am so excited to finally be on mat leave. I have dreamed of this day for years and I can hardly believe it is finally real. I will miss my co-workers for sure, but I am so thrilled to be working for a new "boss" sometime very soon!

Last night I had a dream that the baby is a boy, for the second time. Up until then I had only dreamt about a girl. So now I am honestly confused at what the baby might be. I don't even want to try to guess anymore!
