How far along: 34 weeks
Baby's size: Honeydew melon (5lbs. 2oz., 18.2" according to our ultrasound today!)
Weight gain: 25lbs.
Maternity clothes: Ohhh yes...although I prefer not to wear clothes at all! ;-P
Stretch marks: None
Sleep: Now that I've got a good "wind down" routine, I'm sleeping pretty good! Lots of tossing and turning though, and I get up to pee at least once.
Movement: LOTS! Rolling, kicking, and hiccups!
Best moment this week: Our diaper shower over the weekend. What a wonderful day!
Worst moment this week: On Friday morning my friend and I took our kids to a local park, and it was quite overwhelming. The kids are at such a crazy and wild age and rarely follow instructions or rules, which is really hard when you're 8 months pregnant (me) or you're wearing your 6 week old (my friend). BBUUTT the good news (and quite frankly the whole point of our trip) is both kids took 2 hour naps! Woohoo! :)
Looking forward to: Josh is taking Thursday and Friday off work, so I'm looking forward to a little date day on Thursday (while Jacob is at school) and a fun family day on Friday/HALLOWEEN!
Food cravings: Still breakfast foods, specifically pancakes! Ha!
Weirdest food I ate this week: Pancakes THREE TIMES this week! :)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Labor signs: None
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks, light cramping, sore back, tired, hemorrhoids, baby brain, itchy stomach, my linea negra is starting to form and I'm starting to get melasma on my face
Workouts: A couple walks to the park this week.
What I miss: WINE and a general feeling of comfort...
Similarities/differences between last pregnancy: Very similar, although I'm starting to feel like a pile of crap! Don't think that happened until further along with Jacob. Check out my last pregnancy at 34 weeks here.
Things that suck: Nothing, really....I can't complain about anything!
Things that don't suck: We had an ultrasound today. It's always so neat to watch your baby on the inside. He was sticking out his tongue ALOT and already making some suckling movements. So crazy! :) Here's a few pictures...
