BBV Update Week 35.5

I had a checkup today, just in time too because I have been feeling pretty intense pressure on my bladder for the past two days. The doctor assured me that it was related to bbv's position (he finally decided to turn himself around and face the right way) and is a common affliction during second (and third, etc) pregnancies. Apparently there is not much I can do about it other than lie down and/or take hourly trips to the bathroom. It is a huge distraction during the day, but other than that I cannot really complain.

I am starting to freak out a bit about making sure I get everything done before bbv arrives. The doctor said history is a great predictor and, since La Luz was late, this baby will not likely be early. Nevertheless, I can't help but feel a bit anxious and wonder if I will get everything done before he arrives.

In honor of my 35.5 week visit, a few pictures for those who haven't seen me recently. I have grown a ton over the past week, or at least that is how I feel.
Once again, please excuse the p.j.'s. In all fairness, Christian just took the pictures and being in p.j.s at 9 p.m. is perfectly acceptable in my opinion.

Julie you look great. If I remember correctly I think you were bigger with Lucy, you look so tiny and adorable. So with that being said...I must take a guess at BBV's weight and say...6lbs 4oz. Anyone with me?

xxxx-ooo lots of Love.
