Baby #2 - 35 Weeks

..and 35 days to go. 

This week we discussed names and managed to cut our list of thirteen names in half - I'd call that progress. We are also getting closer to buying a new car, so we are slowly but surely moving in the right direction. 
I came down with a cold and also experienced my first migraine - ouch. Now I know what auras look like and hope to never experience them again. Also, my left hand went numb during all of this which was pretty alarming. After a quick call to the doctor and lots of water and sleep, I am feeling a little better. I had my coworker check my blood pressure this morning and all is good there, so I am hoping it was a one time thing.

What's the baby up to?
Your baby doesn't have much room to maneuver now that he's over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds (about the size of a honeydew melon). Because it's so snug in your womb, he isn't likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number of times he kicks should remain about the same. His kidneys are fully developed now, and his liver can process some waste products. Most of his basic physical development is now complete — he'll spend the next few weeks putting on weight.


  1. Migraines are the worst! Sorry you had to experience one but glad you are feeling better!

  2. Lookin' good! Sorry you haven't been feeling well. Hopefully the next couple of weeks of work go quickly.

  3. Oh, no! Hope all is getting better by now...
