35 weeks

Hi bloggy friends
First of all, I would like to thank everyone who commented and emailed messages of love and support.
Its been a very hard week, but I'm doing okay and hanging in there.
I took the week off blogging, but still managed to snap this pic at 35 weeks (please excuse the tired, makeup-less face).
I'll be back tomorrow with the 36 week update.

How far along? 35 weeks
Maternity clothes? Nothing new. The weather is starting to heat up and I have NO shorts that fit. Im getting by with a couple of dresses that are really stretchy!
Stretch marks? None
Sleep: A little tough to get comfortable. But its not too bad.
 Best moment this week: Sorting and packing away all the baby gifts. I love spending time in the nursery, its my favorite room in the house.
Miss Anything? Green beer for St Patricks Day.
Movement: LOTS! Sometimes her feet will stick out on the one side.
Food cravings: None
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still get a bit nauseous when I eat at night.
Have you started to show yet: Yes.
Labour Signs: Think there are some braxton hicks going on. The doctor says my cervix is softening and I'm just under 1cm dialated. WOOHOO!
Belly Button in or out? I officially think its not going to pop. 
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: My father's passing has really taken a huge emotional toll on me.
Looking forward to: My mom's visit. I think she might come over here earlier then she first intended. Hopefully she'll make it for the birth.
