34 weeks

Pregnancy: 34 Weeks.  6 more weeks to go! 

Weight Gain:   I'm sad to report at my dr. appointment yesterday i gained 5 more pounds. EEP!  That type of weight gain really stresses me out.  I am now up a total of 26 pounds.  My midwife asked me if i have been eating lots of sweets.... "yes, yes, i have."  I know 26 pounds at 34 weeks is not that bad... but i am going to think before i put a brownie in my mouth from now on. ;)

Next appointment:   Next appt. will be at 36 weeks- Scheduled for 9/12 at 8:15am

Sleep: Been going fine, it's hard to get in and out of bed at night for those many bathroom breaks, but i make it work.  Chai sleeps on the bed with us- at my feet. She had a rude awakening when i woke up the other night and could not move... i don't think she'll be sleeping at my feet too much longer.

Gender: we shall see

Names:   Girls first name set- middle name... nope.  Boys name: nope.

Feeling/ Symptoms:  Feeling a lot of pressure in the LOW portion of my belly. I don't think it's braxton hicks or anything, but it does hurt.  Mostly after sitting for a while then getting up.  I think this is the reason why i have begun to waddle it hurts to walk for a little while till i get used to it.
Movement:  The movement is still awesome, but it's actually starting to get uncomfortable.  It's like the baby is stuck or something and pushing on everything inside of me with all of "it's" might- and it sometimes makes me jump. Still can't get over there is a baby in there... seriously.

Belly:  You see that thing up there?  HUGE. feeling huge..but i still love it.

Maternity Clothes:   The clothes i have been wearing are starting to get too small..  I am improvising.  Still only bought 2 maternity skirts throughout the whole thing.  But again, i did borrow clothes from friends. That's awesome.

Stretch Marks:  Sigh.. yes..  i might take this question off of here. I get annoyed answer it every week.  left hip- not cute.

Best Moment Last Week: Last week was real fun!  Friday- Hayley's wedding , Saturday: our 5 year wedding anniversary , Sunday was a friends' baby shower, and yesterday, Wednesday another friend Adair's baby shower!  It was really fun, there was such good food and we made onesies and bibs for their baby boy due in December!  Here we are!  Belly's and all.  (ps. i LOVE that we are preggers at the same time Adair!!) xoxoxoxo

pregger friends (i did not realize you could see through my tank and see maternity skirt) OOPS!

Nursery:    Andrew started painting the panels with the birds on them for the room.  They look so good!  can't wait to show them when they are all done.

What I Miss:  nothing specific this week. 

Looking forward to:   Tomorrow!  This weekend begins our 4th annual girls trip!  This year is very different than years before because 2 of us are pregnant (adair and i.. up there) and another friend has a 3 month old. We are going to a friend's house for a long weekend and just have a long slumber party.  We will be together and lounge, and be cozy and it'll be great. 

What the professionals are saying:

Your baby now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds  and is almost 18 inches long. Her fat layers — which will help regulate her body temperature once she's born — are filling her out, making her rounder. Her skin is also smoother than ever. Her central nervous system is maturing and her lungs are continuing to mature as well. If you've been nervous about preterm labor, you'll be happy to know that babies born between 34 and 37 weeks who have no other health problems generally do fine. They may need a short stay in the neonatal nursery and may have a few short-term health issues, but in the long run, they usually do as well as full-term babies.

Baby is the size of what fruit/ Vegetable?  Cantaloupe
