34 Weeks



How Far Along: Last Saturday marked 34 weeks

Size of Baby: 5-5.5 lbs

Weight Gain: 35 lbs; a LOT of fluid retention.  My poor toes and fingers look like the Michelin man.

Stretch Marks: Still none!

Maternity Clothes:  Getting sick of them.  Looking forward to going shopping after baby.

Gender:  Sweet baby boy!

Movement:  All the time.  He moves a lot between the hours of 11am-1pm and in the middle of the night.  

Sleep: Not great.  Last night I was up from 2-5.  I think God is just prepping me for reality of life with a baby.  And I'm surviving. :o)

Missing:  My shoes.  My feet are so swollen that I'm limited to a few pairs of sneakers, boots, and my Danskos.  I can't wait to be able to wear flats.

Loving:  Little Debbie Christmas Tree cakes - to a point that I'm disgusted with myself.

Craving:   Salads with ranch dressing and croutons.  I guess that makes up for the Christmas tree cakes.

Feeling: Swollen and sore.  After swelling all day, my feet are super sore in the mornings.  Aside from the swelling and general achiness, I'm feeling really good.  I'm getting excited about CT's arrival and completion of the nursery.  I really can't complain - a little bit of swelling and achiness is nothing.

Looking Forward: I get to see my brother again this weekend which makes 2 weekends in a row and I'm going to complete our registries at Target and Babies R Us since we have had all of our showers.    

Best Moment(s):   Seeing my family was awesome.  Also this week, I completed my master's coursework and we got our carseat/stroller (gotta love Cyber Monday).  I had a craft fair this week and added more inventory to my Lulu's Mimi website.  Things are wonderful!
We had our last "easy" dr. appt. Monday and we are both measuring exactly where we should be.

Just one of the new items available at Lulu's Mimi.

Getting our carseat/stroller in the mail makes me feel like we are officially ready.

  2. I was REALLY starting to hate maternity clothes those last few months of pregnancy. Now I find that I still want to wear my maternity leggings. AWKWARD.

  8. I started noticing occasional swelling... Like I had to take my wedding rings off several times this past week because my hands had swollen to the point it hurt to wear them! I am sure you're not enjoying that experience either lol.

  10. If it makes you feel better, you don't look like you have a ton of fluid retention to me! It must ALL be going to your toes and fingers.
