34 weeks~ baby i2

DATE:  September 5, 2013

How far along: 34 weeks = only 6 weeks left!

Total Weight Gained:
  I'm finally over the beginning & have gained 2lbs!

How big is baby? "At less than two months to go, baby weighs in at about 4.2 to 5.8 pounds and measures about 17.2 to 18.7 inches. By week 34, she's recognizing and reacting to simple songs, if you're
singing them. (If you're not, start ... she may find them soothing after birth.)"

How baby is growing:
  • Urinating about a pint a day.
  • Her fat layers — which will help regulate her body temperature once she's born — are filling her out, making her rounder.
  • Her skin is also smoother than ever.
  • Her central nervous system is maturing and her lungs are continuing to mature as well

    Maternity Clothes:  Andrew officially called my pajama shirt a belly shirt today hahaha! It is non-maternity.  These days I'm simply about remaining comfortable. Maternity clothes are a necessity to go out of the house.

    Sleep: Sleeping sucks.  Let's be real.  Last night in particular was the worst! I couldn't lay down from the pressure of this baby.  She's head down and I wondered if I were crushing her skull trying to lay on my side. I was almost in tears it was so painful.  Add to that, the heartburn and I'm miserable trying to go to bed, but I'm so tired all I want to do is sleep.  I ended up propping myself up with a billion couch pillows and was finally able to go to sleep.

    Best Pregnancy Moment of the Week:  hmmmm.  I'm honestly just ready for her to be here.  I do love feeling her move and know I will miss that when she's born.

    Movement: She definitely lets me know she's there.  Movement has started to slow down some though.

    Food Cravings:  lemonade, Rocky Road ice cream, ice, water, Potato Patch fries

    Food Aversions:
     Nothing really is making me want to stay away except the heartburn.

    Gender:  our second precious baby girl

    Symptoms:  irritability still, exhaustion, that crotch pressure, hemorrhoids {tmi, yes}.  I'm not easy to be around. :(

    What I miss: not feeling exhausted all the time and being able to roll over in bed.

    What I'm looking forward to: My ankle healing and not delivering this baby in a walking boot, watching Lily become a big sister, feeling better physically, Halloween, the baby being here, figuring out her middle name, baby smell.

    33weeks, 4days
