oh baby! 34 weeks!

August 31, 2012 in Oh baby!

How far along? 34 weeks + 4 days. Holy. Smokes! Six weeks until Baby L’s due date!

How big is the baby? According to thebump.com, Baby Boy is between 4.2 – 5.8 pounds and 17.2 – 18.7 inches long — the size of a butternut squash!

Total weight gain? Only one pound gained since my last two week checkup — which puts the total at 33 pounds.I can live with that!

Stretch marks? Still the same few. No new ones.

Sleep: Cannot get enough! And that first trimester fatigue is starting to come back. Yuck. So I’m trying to sleep as much as possible, which keeps getting interrupted by having to pee, and then I can’t fall back asleep. But I try!

Movements: Lots and lots of hiccups! and I still see my belly moving around throughout the day.

Food cravings: Nothing. I haven’t had an appetite for anything this past week.

Food aversions: Still just grilled chicken.

What I miss: Being able to bend over and put shoes on {and underwear still}.

What I’m looking forward to: Organizing the nursery {see picture below with all of the goodies from the shower not put away} this weekend and putting up the crib!

Other notes: I’m starting to get excited over Baby L’s arrival. Before I was feeling mostly terrified, but I’m starting to actually get excited. 🙂
