35 Weeks Pregnant and Crazy Dreams

I’m finding that 35 weeks pregnant is having some effects.  I don’t suddenly feel amazing or feel awful, but 35 weeks means that birth is getting pretty eminent.  I’m actually 35 weeks and three days, so my daughter is due in 32 days.  Which means that she could be here and be full term any time between 11 and 32 days.

I should state for the record that I have never been pregnant longer than 38.5 weeks.  And my first boy was born at 37 weeks on the dot.

So this means that my goals have been pretty much centered around preparation.  I’m preparing for my VBAC delivery with the Hypnobabies Home Study Course.  I’m preparing around the house with my massive list of stuff to do and major cleaning.

35 Weeks Pregnant and Blissfully in Love

Amazingly enough, we hit 35 weeks pregnant yesterday.  In two to five weeks, our little girl will make her arrival.  Aside from that obsessive nesting need to get everything done (which is even stronger at 35 weeks pregnant than it was at 33 weeks pregnant), the husband and I have finally gotten our rumps in gear and started our Hypnobabies Home Study Course in earnest.  Of course, since we delayed so long, we’re doing an “accelerated plan” that we found online.
