34 Weeks: Baby Countdown is on!

Thursday, January 1, 2015


How far along: 34 Weeks

Size of Baby: Pineapple (19-22 inches, 4.9+ lbs)

Gender: sweet little baby boy

Best moment this week: Taking our hospital tour, it was pretty surreal. And my husband commenting in our childbirth class that he wasn't going to help with the baby for the first 6 months... and none of the people realizing he was joking. Good one babe.

Weight gain: +30lbs. Translation: feeling huge!

Maternity clothes: Ready to burn my maternity clothes. I've been attempting to wear non-maternity pieces but it's not going so well.

Stretch marks: Still clear! Thank you belly butter!

Belly button in or out: Might be in the beginning stages of popping, hard to say

Wedding Rings on or off: Keeping both rings off just to be safe

Sleep: Going to bed late and waking up early thanks to baby kicks and pregnancy insomnia. Plus 3-4 pee breaks per night. Lovely.

Miss anything: Sleeping comfortably. Champagne.

Movement: Lots of big shifting movements and hiccups almost every day. The movements are starting to be uncomfortable so I can imagine the babe is getting cramped in there!

Cravings: Still loving ice water and orange juice

Symptoms: Total exhaustion. Aching back. Oh and my feet feel like I've been walking around a Theme Park for days

Labor Signs: None yet, not even Braxton Hicks. I'm measuring right on track but for some reason I feel like Rowan might be a January baby!

Nursery: SO close to being complete! I cannot wait to share it with you all!!

Looking forward to: Holding our little man in our arms! What could be better? Can't wait to see what good stuff 2015 has in store for our little family!

A much needed mani-pedi is on the agenda this weekend :)
