34 Weeks

September 6, 2012

Pregnancy Stats:
How Far Along: 34 weeks

Size of baby: weighs about 4 3/4 pounds (like your average cantaloupe) and is almost 18 inches long
Total Weight Gain: 14 pounds so far...feels like sooo much more.
Gender: It's a GIRL!!!
Movement: She is still moving and kicking and rolling and punching and readjusting like crazy. Feeling this baby move is still one of the best feelings ever, it's a very reassuring feeling! It sure can hurt sometimes though!  She's definately growing like crazy! 
Sleep: It's hit or miss. I always get up a couple of times, which I am ok with, its just challenging to go back to sleep. What I wouldn't do for a peaceful, sound nights sleep, I miss that...
What I miss: A good nights sleep, being able to move without pain, running to clear my head...heck, I miss all exercise at this point. I'm pretty sure my husband thinks I am crazy when I ask him to help me up all the time or just "push" me. It's amazing what carrying around a watermelon will do to your ability to function like a normal human being.
Cravings: Sweets, nothing new.
Symptoms:  Hip, back and horrible neck pain, I haven't really had any more braxton hicks contractions, but I do get crazy heart burn.  Nothing I can't deal with. I have nothing major to complain about. Praise God for that!
Maternity Clothes: Yep, but mostly I just wear my husbands t-shirts and a pair of running shorts.  And Thank God for being able to wear scrubs to work!
Best Moment this week: Seeing my baby.  Getting more accomplished in the nursery.  I'm feeling crafty these days and even made a mobile for her nursery...and I also painted the nightstand for her room pink, after my sweet husband sanded it for me.
