35 weeks...

How Far Along: 35 weeks (just 5 weeks to go)
Total Weight Gained: ugh... alot!  But I don't want to talk about it!
Maternity Clothes:  Thanks to my sweet friend Maghen I have the cutest maternity clothes available!  And thanks to Granny I also have some shorts which have been great in this HOT weather!
Best Moment of the Week: Painting Ely Reed's room & assembling her crib, dresser, BOB, etc.  Go Wayn-o!  Our paint  pro friends, Dustin & Amy, lead the painting effort.  And Sissy (MIL) helped with the assembly!
Movement: She is moving & shaking & wearing me out, but I love it! 
Food Craving: I heart dill pickles; we even painted the nursery dill pickle!!! 
Food Aversion: Red sauce or anything that causes heartburn!!!
Morning Sickness:  It's more of a continuous heartburn issue, but peppermint gum is helping tons!
Gender: It's a girl!  Ely Reed
Labor Signs: None, Zero, Never felt those here!
Belly Button: The good news is that it has not popped so I am happy as can be!
What I Miss: The ability to breathe!
What I am looking forward to: Finishing the nursery!!!  Seeing our baby girl!!!  In that order would be nice...
Weekly Wisdom: Just bc your weekly appts have started doesn't mean your baby is ready to come!  She is still high and just hanging out in there with no signs of arriving anytime soon!  For now this is great bc Wayne is going Texas to turkey hunt with Andy this weekend!  
Why I think my husband will be an Awesome Dad: Wayne has been such a good sport!  Yes!  He has a weak stomach, but he is so great during our childbirth classes - he has excellent breathing techniques & he even suggested that we make a list of the items we need during delivery.  Although he may give me a silly face, he is happy to help with anything I ask!  Gotta love that!

Wow you are getting close! I can't believe she is almost here! Try to enjoy these last few weeks with just you and Wayne because it's about to change forever! And you are a good woman for letting him go to Texas. I would FREAK OUT if Brad were going that far away. Of course he was in Louisiana when my water broke with Reed and in the Delta when I went into labor, so I am a little touchy about my hubby being too far from me.

I look forward to seeing pictures of her in about a month!
