Bumpdate | Week 34


Week|  34

Total Weight Gain| Yeah, I'm pretty sure I just passed the plus 40 lb mark.  The good news is I must be carrying it well because don't believe me when I tell them that, or they are just trying to be extra nice!

Gender| Baby Girl!

Symptoms| Still sticking strong with the occasional swelling and back/hip pain.  I've been pretty tired lately, which isn't too surprising.  And a few days I've felt like the skin on my stomach is so tight that there is no place else it could possibly stretch too, but the good news is that feeling usually subsides the next day.  It's amazing how I can go from completely uncomfortable one day to feeling great the next, but I'll take it!

Cravings|  Anything cold and sweet.  We're not even having that hot of a summer, in fact it's colder then I can remember in forever, but that doesn't stop me from being hot all the time.  Popsicles, slushies, smoothies, ice cream. . . I could make meals out of all of them.

Sleep|  I was on a good roll, and then the long weekend hit and for some reason my body just wanted to be up between the hours of 3 and 6 am, which I personally wasn't too fond of.  Perhaps it's just preparing me for what's in my near future!  Luckily the last few nights have been better, but I think getting totally worn out from work helps.

Clothes|  All maternity, cool maternity clothes.  Any day I wear pants I tend to regret it - too hot!  I also started to pick up some stuff for the hospital and after, like some nursing bras, super glamorous.

Workouts| Remember we're at the point where living in and of itself is a workout?!  Seriously, I even think rolling over in bed counts because its a serious project!  I am definitely at the point where I am slowing down hardcore.  I had gotten to the point where I wouldn't teach anymore then 3 lessons in a row and work, and now that's even becoming a challenge, depending on how busy the rest of my day is.  

Nursery|  I've gotten some more stuff washed and put away.  A few more things I'd like to make sure a washed and ready before she comes, and a few more little projects, but generally I'm feeling really good about where it's at.

Movement|  Lots of wiggles and flutters, she doesn't seem to be running out of room in there yet!

Best Moment this Week|  Having a long 3 day weekend, it was so needed!

Missing|  Sleeping in any position I desire, and not waking up every time I turn over.

Looking Forward To|  Meeting this little one.  It's getting more and more real and we approach things like needing to start to pack a hospital bag and get the car seat installed.  I can't believe we'll be meeting her in just about a month!
