a little late to the party this week, but how could i not update everyone on the riveting growth of my sweet turtle 2.0 who kicks the daylights out of me all night long, causes excruciating heartburn, wild mood swings, and all in all makes me an absolute treasure to be around? 

no seriously...let's be friends. i'll cry on your shoulder one minute and be manically happy the next. is everyone getting a little feel for what my farmer is dealing with on the daily?

he made his bed...now he'll have to lay in it...for like...4.5 more weeks.
35 WEEK STATS | farm gal #2

WEIGHT GAIN | no worries guys! i'm excelling in this department as of lately. since i've stopped running altogether but continue my nightly splurges on ice cream, nutella, birthday cake...or all three...the doctor informed me i'm at a 15 pound weight gain. 

but seriously...having both my farmer's birthday and my birthday last week didn't do me any favors. i LITERALLY ate more than 90% of a deliriously delicious birthday cake from whole foods.

let it be noted...whole foods makes killer cakes. 

SYMPTOMS | the next time i forget my prilosec just put me out of my misery. seriously...i forgot to take it yesterday morning and was feeling pretty cocky most of the day because i wasn't having any symptoms. but from about 9 pm - 2 am i wished i was...i don't know what. but it was terrible.

also, i may have experienced my very first braxton hicks moments last night. do those hurt or just kind of feel like a cramping sensation? 

SIZE OF BABY | i saw the doctor today and this little fighter (think MMA, karate, boxer) is the perfect size. he's predicting a 7 pounder + a few ounces on the due date. kaye was 7 lb. 14 oz. at 11 days overdue...so that sounds about right. 

but right now this little gal is just over five pounds and between 16 - 18 inches in length.

SLEEP | oh sleep...you elusive thing you. 

the other night my farmer fell asleep on the couch...and because i'm a super good wife, i left him there. things are super romantic up in here...up in here.

but guess what? i rolled to the middle of our glorious king sized bed and slept most excellently for like...three hours. i felt like a new woman the next day and i think i was probably a little more mentally stable. 

WORKOUTS | no more running. whomp whomp. but i do get in some walking. plus carrying kaye around has to count for something. oh...and moving furniture and painting and hand polishing the hardwood floors...these all make me out of breath...so that's practically cardio.

CLOTHING | hello black leggings three days in a row. i'm particularly excited because i ordered some new black leggings that i've heard are the shiz. i'll be super jazzed when those land on my doorstep. 

GENDER | girl...not that we've had any additional ultrasounds to reconfirm. but i swear...if this baby comes out a boy i'll be slightly disappointed for like...five seconds. 

regardless, i worked on those pink stripes in the nursery last week and i changed the closet doors from an olive green to white...and they look SO. MUCH. BETTER. see...

CRIES THIS WEEK | sorry to disappoint, but ZERO cries this week!! who am i? clearly someone who is 100% emotionally stable. 

PURCHASES | ummm...don't ask. i mean...it's september and my birthday month and the weather is changing and and and...i NEEDED them. but seriously...don't tell my farmer. just let him read the blog and let him remember that i'm carrying his child and that the last pair of boots i received about four years ago for christmas and that all he has to do is sell 2.5 bales of hay to pay for them. it's fine. i love you farmer. a lot.
