Weekly Update: 34 Weeks

{last week's update --- forgot to do a picture!}

How far along? 34 weeks, 5 Days
Baby Size: A butternut squash
Total weight gain: 27 lbs
Maternity clothes? Yep. Thank goodness for this maternity dress that I bought for Easter.
I had to wear it again for an outside wedding and it was the perfect little dress to put on and stay comfy.
Stretch marks? Belly is still good! 
Sleep: Sleep seems to be even worse. I'm partially blaming that on my husband's snoring and because
on this week we switched sides of the bed after setting up the bassinet. We had to switch
so I could be next to it, and I think the switch isn't working for me.  
Best moment this week: Probably finding out that at 35 weeks I'd start the internal checks!
And attending a Labor of Love, Natural Delivery class with my mom. It was 8 hours long and 
all in one day, but I had fun. I also got some massages out of it --- so works for me! 
Miss Anything? I noticed that my arms have changed. My favorite body part was always my arms
because for some reason they had a lot of definition. I was always complimented on them and 
asked what I did to get that! LOL, it's a little both genetics and some of my dancing. 
But I did notice a fuller look in them that is hiding the definition and making them squishier. 
I'm just hoping that it is just fluid and that it will disappear soon! 
Movement: She's pretty darn active! I love it. With her being so far down, I swear sometimes
I feel like my hoo-hah is hiccuping. (TMI)
Food cravings: Back to pepperoni pizza with bell peppers. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still have my occasional mornings of sickness. 
Gender: Ladybug
Symptoms: Lots of contractions here and there. Some days it's more so than others and very frequent. 
Other days it is just sporadic Braxton Hicks. I guess that means it is getting ready! 
Belly Button in or out? Almost out. 
Wedding rings on or off? On -- but noticeably tighter
Mood: READY. 
Looking forward to: During this week I was super excited about starting my internal checks
to see what my body was up to. I had my 35 week check yesterday and will share that news 
soon on my update. So ready to meet this baby! She's going to be so stinking cute - I can feel it. 


Getting felt up by my husband, brother in law and sister in law :)

My baby daddy and I.
