Baby M Update: Week 35

How far along? 35 weeks
Total weight gain: 16 lbs. at my last appointment. Go in Wednesday so we’ll see what I’ve gained this past month.
Maternity clothes? Yep, I’ve pretty much been wearing all maternity clothes but I do have some regular clothes that I can still fit in.
Stretch marks?
nope 🙂 And I’m thrilled!
Sleep: Sleeping well. I have been waking up pretty early but most of the time, can fall back to sleep.

Best moment this week: FINALLY getting a phone call from Travis! LOVED hearing that voice after 3 wks!
Miss Anything? Still Travis!
Movement: Big time! I am shocked at how much she is still moving with such limited space she now has. She’s a mover and a shaker!
Food cravings: I didn’t really crave anything this week.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, I’ve been good this week.
Gender: GIRL!!
Labor Signs: No. I’ve had a few Braxton Hicks contractions but nothing crazy at all.
Belly Button (in or out): Still in but oh so close to popping!
Wedding Rings (on or off): On
Symptoms: The usual back and round ligament pain, and shortness of breath.Unfortunately, my swollen gums are back as well.
Happy or Moody most of the time: I was pretty moody this week. I thought at the beginning of the week it was just because I was tired from SNAP but apparently that wasn’t true. Things/People were just really getting on my nerves and I didn’t care what came out of my mouth. And I’ve had the random cry session.
Looking forward to: Hanging out with some friends this week. Having my Dr. appt on Weds. and working on some accessories for the nursery. Time is ticking so I better get them done! 🙂

Tulips at SNAP

I promise a real recap post of SNAP is coming! 
I am still working on editing all my photos but I wanted to share some pictures of all the beautiful tulips that were on the property where SNAP took place.
SNAP was at a venue called Thanksgiving Point and while we were there, a Tulip Festival was going on so everywhere you looked, beautiful tulips sat begging for all of us bloggers to take photos of them! 
I didn’t make it down to the actual Festival itself, (this pregnant body of mine wasn’t too happy with me so I don’t think I could have made it), but I did walk around the gorgeous grounds by the hotel and conference buildings. 
And if you know me and flowers…. I was in HEAVEN!!! 
I decided to just make collages of the photos so you don’t get too tired of looking at tulips so enjoy! 

Water tower at Thanksgiving point and of course tulips
The grounds were so pretty! 
Here is a shot of a waterfall or The Hidden Falls that were on the grounds. 
Gorgeous tulips were around every curve and behind all the fabulous architectural elements in the garden.
It was SO colorful and made me so happy for spring! 
I highly suggest you go visit the Tulip Festival in Lehi, UT or Salt Lake City Area. 
It was SOOOO Pretty!

Sleep: Slept pretty good all week. Had a little trouble while I was out of town for SNAP but that is to be expected when it is not your own bed.

Best moment this week: Heading out to Utah for SNAP and seeing all my bloggy buddies and meeting new ones! 🙂
Miss Anything? Travis! I so wish he was home when I got back from Utah.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy
Looking forward to: Talking to Travis again. We’ve emailed but it has been a while since we’ve chatted online and I really want a phone call! Haven’t heard his voice since he left.
