35 weeks!

Day 57 of bedrest, but I'm almost to the promise land! Yay! ☺
My appointment on Monday went was actually pretty boring (which we like). Baby is about 4lbs 12oz, HR was 163 and everything is lookin' good. I don't go back until the 18th (1 day short of 37 wks).
**The best news** → NO MORE BEDREST @ 36 WEEKS!! Only 1 more week left, yaaaaaaayyyy!!!
I think my daughters are especially happy about this simply because they have decided that they want to dress me up for Halloween and drag me out to Trick or Treat with them...and guess what their bright costume "theme" idea is...Bumblebees. Yea. 2 seriously cute bumblebees and one immensely overgrown "Queen Bee". Joy. I can't promise that I'll share pictures of that.

Here's the scoop on the baby this week:
From now on, baby's growth is mostly in the plumping up department -- though he won't get much longer, he'll put on a pound or more of baby fat before birth. His hearing is totally developed (tip: baby responds best to higher pitches), and his testes have probably completed their descent.

I'm starting to get kinda nervous now...eeek! I can't believe it's almost time! As huge as I feel and as much as I hate wobbling to get where I'm going, I'm sure I'll actually miss being pregnant once it's all said and done.
I don't really have anything else to report, so I'll leave ya with my 35 week belly pic. TTYL!
