Almost There! – 34 Week Update

Holy crap. This baby’s coming soon.

How far along: 34 weeks – 6 weeks from EDD, 3 weeks from being full term, 2ish weeks(!) from stitch removal!

Total weight gain: about 3.6 pounds. Baby is gaining nicely and I’m measuring as I should.

Maternity clothes: Still in my standard uniform of yoga pants and t-shirts most days, but I’m saving a ton of money on maternity clothes 🙂

Sleep: I’m having a hard time sleeping at night because of insomnia, heartburn, baby movement, and not being able to find a comfortable position.

Miss anything: Social interaction, little things like going to get groceries.

Movement: Still feeling lots of movement and it’s getting stronger.

Food cravings: fried banana from our favorite Thai restaurant in north east PA

Anything making you queasy or sick: certain smells. I’m not sure of which ones until I smell them.

Have you started to show yet: I look like I swallowed a basketball.

Baby’s Sex: Still unknown. I”m so close to the end that I can wait to find out.

Labor signs: Braxton Hicks continue, but usually go away if I empty my bladder or drink water. Hoping not to see labor signs for another few weeks. Lots of the third trimester stuff no one tells you about…

Belly button in or out: Still in. I don’t think it’s going to pop.

Wedding rings on or off: On.

Happy or moody most of the time: Very moody. Regular pregnancy hormones + extra progesterone + dealing with bed rest = moody.

Looking forward to: My baby shower at the end of the month, seeing my mom for my shower, maternity pics, stitch removal, and a BABY IN MY ARMS!
