34 Weeks

34 weeks!
Baby is the size of a butternut squash...have you seen those? Those aren't tiny by any means..
I now start my WEEKLY doctor appointments. Which is crazy because it has come so soon.
Also babies born at 34 weeks and on usually have no health problems. Which is defiantly a relief. But little girl can stay in there longer for sure!

How far along? 34 Weeks

Total weight gain: I honestly don't have much of a clue. I forget what I weigh after each appointment! And quite frankly when I step on a belly is in the way and I can't see! 

Maternity clothes? Defiantly, I want to be comfortable these last few weeks.  

Stretch marks? Not yet! Still applying Vitamin E oil and Palmer's Stretch mark lotion every morning and night. 

Sleep: It would be great if I didn't have to wake up and pee so much. I tried to stop drinking water around 7 pm. But I am just so thirsty all the time that I've given up and just drink as much as want. Either way I still have to pee. 

Best moment of this week: Completing a few to-do lists! I have her hospital bag all packed and ready to go, just need to finish ours. 

Miss anything? Feeling comfortable and being able to sleep all night long. 

Movement: Yes! I there's nothing better <3 Even with her kicks feeling pretty painful, I still enjoy them. 

Food cravings: Iced coffee....well more specific. Starbuck's Caramel Ribbon Crunch...oh it is heaven in a cup. Other than that I really don't have any food cravings. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really.  

Gender: A sweet baby girl! 

Labor signs: Nothing except braxton hicks contractions

Symptoms:  Sore back and my sciatic nerve seem to be acting up. I go to the Chiropractor every other week and it does help. Heartburn that is awful...I have to chew about 4 tums to calm it down. My favorite is waking up in the middle of the night with a burning sensation in my throat.

Belly button in or out? It's still an innie-outie but more on the flat side. But it pops out when she's laying right there. 

Wedding rings on or off? On and off. If I'm at home I won't wear them. But when I go out I will because I just hate not having anything on my finger. 

Happy or moody most of the time: Pretty happy. But I do have mood swings that occur once in awhile. 

Looking forward to: September! It's going to be a pretty busy month between more baby showers and birthdays. My sister-in-law and I are planning our other sister-in-laws baby sprinkle and I'm SO excited to see how it's going to turn out. It's a surprise theme so I can't really share any details yet. AND it's the last full month until we meet our little girl!!
