34 Weeks!

34 weeks!
I can't believe it!
The past few weeks have flown by with the end of school & start of summer.

How Far Along:
34 Weeks
Size of baby:
Baby is the size of a cantaloupe
Total Weight Gain/Loss:
I have gained 35 lbs
( I gained 50 lbs with Kate & Claire, so hopefully I don't gain 15 lbs in the next 6 weeks!)
Maternity Clothes:
I wear pretty much all maternity
Gender:
Don't know...It's a Surprise!
Movement:
Lots of kicks & rolls. Baby is most active at night (like the girls were)
Sleep:
I'm sleeping pretty good, but according to Kevin I thrash around all night in my sleep. I am having a hard time getting comfortable at night. And, for the past few weeks, I have been waking up almost once a night because I get a Charlie Horse in my calf. Ouch!
What I miss:
Coffee. Wine. Diet Coke. Margaritas.
Cravings:
Steak. Panini Sandwiches. Ice Cream.
Symptoms:
Still have all day sickness & nausea. I am still nauseous all day. Shoot me now. With the girls, that ended at 26 weeks, and here I am with 6 weeks to go and I still feel sick. I am assuming this is going to last until I deliver. At least I am not puking anymore.
And, I am tired...so, so, so, tired which I think makes me feel even more nauseous.
Kevin let me sleep in until 10 am on Saturday. It was amazing.

Best Moment this week:
Lots of fun things have happened this week...
  • We set the crib up over the weekend...it is becoming more real that we are having another baby!
  • I had my 34 week appointment yesterday & the baby is head down! I am measuring slightly ahead & my doctor thinks I am going to have another 9 lb baby. W
  • Today, I had a maternity photo shoot! Can't wait to see the pics! (And, because of that, today was the first time since summer started that I have worn make up. ha! I love summer!)
Can't believe we are getting down to the final stages of this pregnancy!
Stay tuned for a guessing game on the baby's gender & arrival.

Hope you all have a safe & fun 4th of July tomorrow!
We have a fun filled day planned including hosting our annual 4th of July Pool Party & BBQ!
It's one of my favorite days of the year!

  6. I would never have thought to put bright yellow and aqua together, but I am going to do it now! It looks so good!

    Speaking of that, I also gained 40 lbs. and looked like a totally different person (I had a girl)--I never would have guessed 35 lbs for you. You just have that cutie basketball bump! So, I'm saying it's a boy for sure!
