34 weeks

How far along: 34 weeks!  

Size of baby:  A butternut squash...I'm guessing he is headed towards 6 lbs now. 

Total weight gain/loss:  I think I'm over this question! haha Went to the doctor today and I've gained 3 more lovely pounds. 

Maternity clothes: Yesss 

Gender: Sweet baby boy! James Austin Green!

Movement:  Lots of movement...not so much kicks and jabs but more body rolls and large movements. They are so cool, feels like a wave going through my belly. 

Sleep:   Sleep was a little better last week. I had a few nights of "oh my gosh will I ever sleep well again" but then I had about 4 awesome nights in a row. Whew.

What I miss: I just miss being able to get around easily and do simple things. I shaved my legs today and literally almost passed out when I stood up. haha. And I feel like a turtle stuck on it's back when I'm in bed and have to roll over. Good times! 

Cravings: Still loving milk and OJ, and looooving chocolate covered pretzels. Eating tons of chips and salsa lately too!  

Best moment this past week:  Probably working. We had an engagement shoot last weekend and it felt so good to have a camera in my had been almost 2 months!  

Symptoms: Dare I say the carpel tunnel might be slightly better? It is still there everyday but I haven't had shooting screaming pains in the middle of the night for the past week. ThankyouGod. All the other stuff is still the same - swollen ankles, soreness, peeing all the time, waddling around, and lots and lots of burps. 

What I'm looking forward to: Our damn glider coming in. UGH. Killing me! I'm also excited to set everything up downstairs in the next few weeks...pack in play, swing, bouncer, install the car seat etc. FUN! 

Milestones: Baby is peeing about a pint a day! whoa. I also keep reading that he can recognize simple songs I sing to him and will recognize them after he is born too. Guess I better start singing to that sweet boy! 

Mood: Starting to get nervous and anxious about labor and delivery, and still emotional and needy.  

Labor Signs: Nope. But feeling a lot more pressure down there. 

Wedding rings on or off: On...but I wonder if I should take them off soon so I don't get to the point where they won't come off. 

So I had my 34 week appt today and everything was great. My BP was good, baby's HR was good, etc etc. She said I was still measuring big so they are going to do another ultrasound at 36 weeks to check my fluid level. This made me happy - another chance to see baby boy!! She said he was still in the head down position and all was well in that category. I go back May 25th for the ultrasound and 36 week appt. 

At first I cropped this photo but then decided against it. I want to remember this time like it was - so please enjoy my cankles. Also, can we talk about this thick hair? Thank youuuu pregnancy! +1 for thick hair and +2 for big boobs! WooWoo!
