35 weeks with Griffin

Someone let their child run around naked after church & he insisted on being in the weekly picture! 
 
*How far along?: 35 weeks -- we are down to FOUR weeks (29 days!!!!) until Griffin's birthday!
*How big is your baby?: a cantaloupe...around 5.5lbs!
*Total weight gain?: 22 pounds 
*Sex: boy!
*Maternity clothes: I'm wearing the same clothes on pretty much a 3 day rotation. Don't worry, they are getting washed frequently. When it is 103+ degrees everyday, you do wash clothes a lot.
*Stretch marks: not yet & crossing my fingers it stays that way!
 *Movement: He is a strong little guy! On Thursday I didn't feel him move until about 1:00pm. I had my OB appointment that afternoon and told her that I could usually feel him throughout the day. She hooked me up to do a stress test & monitor his heart rate...of course he was bouncing around like crazy!
*Sleep: it's probably as good as it can be when you are nearly 9 months pregnant. See also: not great.
*Symptoms: Griffin is starting to push on my ribs just like Grayson did. Thankfully, he is just doing this now. Grayson did it weeks earlier and it hurt so bad by the end.
*Best moment this week: Griffin's name is finally on his wall, the glider is back in the nursery, & ALL the baby equipment is clean! Progress!
*Food cravings: water & more water!
*Labor signs: pressure & some BH contractions now and then
*Belly button in or out: it's really out. don't be jealous.
*What I miss: not wearing shorts that have a spandex panel in 108 degree heat.
*What I'm looking forward to: finishing the nursery!

You look so good. And I'm a bit jealous that you are on baby # 2 and still don't have stretch marks. I got them horrible with Chloe!!!
