How far along: 34 Weeks Pregnant!!!
How big is baby:
what you say! Your curious baby is listening in to your conversations
at 34 weeks -- and might enjoy a lullaby or two -- so go ahead and sing
to him. Some say that baby will recognize songs mom sings while he’s in
the womb, and may even be more easily soothed by them if he’s used to
them once he’s on the “outside.” At week 34, you might breathe a little
easier, since baby may descend lower into your pelvis and give your
lungs some space. (Ahh!) Of course, some babies don’t do this until the
day they’re born, so we’re not making any guarantees. The pitfall of
this descent, of course, is even more pressure on your bladder, so be
prepared to make even more trips to the ladies room over the coming
Maternity clothes: Yes. I'm ready for normal clothes again! :0)
Sleep: I have had a couple awesome nights of sleep this past week where I only woke up twice and ahhhh what a welcome relief.
Best moment of the week: On Sunday, we had our hospital tour. I am so excited. I had to hold back tears the whole time I was there since it's still so surreal. I also got some early birthday presents from Jack (Some Rumparooz LiL Joey's All-in-One cloth diapers!!). Also when I was told I'm measuring almost 2 weeks ahead ... I've been saying that I think he's going to be a February baby... Leap year baby please :)!!
Food aversions: Nothing
cravings: Meh. Nothing really substantial this week. I wish berries were in season though.
Symptoms: Sore back, hips, pelvis, being able to breath better, I'm pretty sure the baby has dropped. Itchy stomach, my fingers are too swollen to wear my wedding rings any more :( Still throwing up here and there. Lots of growing in my belly. Contractions.
Movement: The last two days I swear he has not moved at all and then he slept like a rock last night and he's barely moving this morning, I'm pretty sure he has to be exhausted from the last two days.
What I’m looking forward to: Getting maternity pictures back... supposed to happen today, hopefully! Also my birthday is on Monday. The big 2-6 ;)
Next appt: Valentine's Day or the day after? I don't remember. My last 2 week out appointment and then I'm on to once a week!!!
