35 weeks (and more belly pictures, of course)

Thirty-five weeks! I am literally GIDDY at the thought of being able to meet our daughter in 5 weeks or less! It almost brings me to tears!
Babycenter.com tells me:
Your baby's getting big. He weighs a tad over 5 pounds (think bag of sugar) and is just over 18 inches long from head to heel. Of course, he's still curled up inside you: It's getting so snug in your womb that your baby isn't really floating anymore and he isn't likely to be doing somersaults. But tighter quarters don't mean less frequent movement; your baby should still be kicking at the same rate he always has. If you notice a decrease, call your health care provider. Your baby's kidneys are fully developed now, and his liver can process some waste products. Most of his basic physical development is now complete the next few weeks are all about putting on weight.
She's kicking, alright! Kicking, and punching, and thrashing about. And I love every minute of it! It makes me giggle and I try to imagine just WHAT is she doing in there? This AM, as I was lubing up my belly with the lotions and oils, I think I MAY have saw her foot kick out! She really didn't like me rubbing her that early in the AM, I guess! LOL.
The belly button has not popped at all - but if you touch it, it's actually a bit sore -and brown! LOL
Nice laparoscopy scar underneath the belly button, huh? And the ironing burn to the side of that! (*sigh*)
It is actually getting heavy to walk around with! 40 pounds, can you believe it? The ladies at work all tell me I look thin, and that's it is all baby-- I could kiss them when they tell me that!

Oh, Carrie ... wow! You look beautiful, and so big and round. You're carrying a lot like I did. :) I remember the heavy phase ... there was a point where going to the mall was no longer fun!
