Bumpdate: 34 Weeks + 2 Days!

How Far Along? 34 Weeks, 2 days!

Weight Gain? At the doctor on Monday, it was about 29 pounds. I’m pretty okay with that.

Size of Baby? A Pineapple – 19-22 inches and almost 5 pounds!

Maternity Clothes?  Yep.

Stretch Marks?  Yep.

Gender? 9 more days till I tell you!

Sleep? It’s been okay. I get up for the bathroom about 3 times a night, and my body has recently decided that about 4-5am is insomnia hour…but I can usually get back to sleep for a little while after that, so it’s not too bad.

Food Cravings? Carbs. Baby does not like bananas.

Symptoms? Swelling, fatigue, and…morning sickness? I know, I should have had it ages ago, but yesterday morning my body decided it hated my breakfast and it all came back up…an hour after that I ate another breakfast and felt normal the rest of the day…weird. I’m definitely starting to feel heavier in the middle…BB is running out of room!

Movement? Yep, mostly BB sticking his/her butt out, a few kicks, and some hiccups.

Belly Button? Still weird. I try not to look at it. It almost bothers me more than the stretch marks.

Wedding rings on or off? Cheapo ring is still on but definitely getting snug when I swell.

Labor signs? Nope!

Best Moment of the Week? Taking our maternity pictures on Sunday (thank goodness for Hurricane Sandy holding off a bit until we were done), and getting my belated birthday present – my new DSLR! (now if I can only figure out what all the settings do!)

What I Miss? Sleeping through the night. But then, I know it’ll be a while before I get that back!

What I am looking forward to: A relaxing weekend with Chris. We have nothing planned, but I’m glad we get some downtime!
