Today I am 35 weeks pregnant with 35 days left to go until my due date.  I'm really hoping that Grant decides to make his exit sooner than later though, because I'm pretty much in the miserable stage of pregnancy.  Not to sound like Debbie Downer, and I'm really not one to complain, but I need to write down all of the uncomfortable moments of this pregnancy so that a year from now when I start to think "oh, it wasn't so bad, maybe we should have a fourth?!?" I can look back and be reminded of why I don't want/need a fourth.  Three is plenty for us, and I am excited to close this chapter of my life and focus on raising our completed family.
I love numbers, so the 35 week/35 days left mark is always a fun one :) I cannot believe that I only have two more weeks until I'm considered full-term, and I am counting down the days (literally) until Grant's arrival!

Weight: around 5.5 pounds

Measuring: about 4 days early...head is slightly big in relation to his body (should be fun in labor)

Length: around 18 inches

Annoying pregnancy symptoms (for future reference :)!):
-constant congested nose
-on and off horrible tail bone pain (mostly on)
-lower back pain (never had with either girl)
-rib cage pain (had with both girls too)
-Can't work out my legs because of the tail bone pain (i.e. no squats or lunges for me anymore)
-It hurts to sit, especially when driving
-Definitely have a waddle going on now (never had this early with the girls)

Things that aren't so bad: 
-Can still bend and maneuver  around pretty well
-Still working out (mostly weights *arms* and walking at 4.0 incline and 3.5 speed)
-Still working and plan on shooting until September (if baby hasn't come yet)
-Still sleeping really well, even though I have to switch positions quite a bit

We did a little photo shoot with the girls, and I think that Josh did a pretty good job considering the difficult subjects!
