Bump Update: 35 Weeks

Bump Update: 35 Weeks

I’m officially 35 weeks! A couple of days ago I had a doctors appointment in which an utrasound was performed as well! Baby J is in the 77%-tile which means he’s slightly bigger than average and he already weighs over 5lbs! Can you believe it? I certainly cannot, and yet I have a feeling that it’s only a matter of time until we’ll finally hold him in our arms!


  It’s the final count down, you guys! I’m pretty much in a state of disbelief, but at the same time, sheer excitement floods my body when I think about it. In roughly 4 weeks, give or take a few, we’ll have our baby boy to hold and kiss and snuggle and love. It’s just really surreal.

At my last OB appointment, my doctor was worried that my belly was measuring a bit small for where I should be at that point in time, and arranged for me to have an ultrasound. I was quite nervous because the same thing happened with Kingston. My water was almost gone when we had the utlrasound which meant I had to be induced. Kingston was born a day later, at 37 weeks.

But let’s get back to Baby J…

Comes out…Everything is fine! The ultrasound showed that Baby J is perfectly healthy, and in the 77%-tile of growth! I’m telling you he’s a big boy! My stress has disappeared and I’m back to breathing easier. So, here you have it…The size of your bump really isn’t an indicator if you’re having a big or small baby! Look at me! My belly is small and yet I have a BIG baby inside of me! ๐Ÿ™‚

As always, thanks much for reading & have a wonderful weekend!

See you back here on Monday! XOXO

    So relieved ll is well! How scary that must have been, but since you experienced something similar with Kingston hopefully you knew it was all going to be okay. So happy for you… final countdown indeed, and this gown looks beautiful on you! PS: I cannot believe he is so big already!

    That’s good the doctor wanted to do the ultrasound just to make sure everything was ok and great that baby is a big healthy boy! Hopefully that will put your mind at ease for these last four weeks or so. I cannot believe he will be here so soon!! Have a wonderful weekend, Vanessa!

    Dear V., you look again amazing, such an ethereal picture, the miracle of life – I love that idea! Such a fairy, you are! I get what you said, I also thought that the belly was small, but I thought it was an old picture. Now I know that Baby J is fine and that people can have a small belly, but Baby J is a big baby inside! I am eager to see him and of course, you are more, no doubt, but we, your blogger-friends, took part in this journey through your posts and I feel like knowing you and the baby! 4 weeks more… a bit less, a bit more, but soon, very soon you will be with one more angel in your arms! Hope you have a great weekend, dear V., enjoy it with your family and welcoming Baby J soon! Hugs and kisses!

    You look absolutely beautiful in this photo, Vanessa, so angelic! Well, it’s good to know that the size of the belly isn’t always an indicator of the size and health of the baby because some of my family have commented on how small my belly is, too (insert eyeball roll emoji lol). I’m glad Baby J is healthy and I know, I can’t believe he’ll be here so soon either, time really flies. Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great weekend ahead!
