35 week 4 day appointment

We started our weekly appointments this week. I gained another 4.5 pounds for a total of 33 pounds. Owen's heart rate was ~130 bpm and he now weighs ~ 5 lbs according to Dr. Birch. My belly measured around 34 weeks due to the fact that Owen has officially dropped into my pelvis. He is head down and causing me a lot of pressure these days. I also started the lovely exams this week....the results: no dilation, but my cervix is softening. We go back Monday to see how I'm progressing. I've told Owen that "Mommy has a few more things to get done before he arrives", so hopefully he's a good listener.

We're a little behind on our belly pics. So we just skipped the 35 week picture and posted the 36 week belly pic instead. For those of you that haven't seen me belly has changed a lot in the past few weeks. I feel like it changes daily! It's definitely getting harder to get...out of bed, up from the floor, and out of our over sized chair. Only a few more weeks to go, thank goodness!
