Pregnancy Update: 34 Weeks


34 weeks and 2 days (at work!)

How far along? 34 weeks and 2 days pregnant. 40 days until my due date.

Total weight gain: I’ve gained 25.2 pounds according to my doctor’s visit yesterday.

Maternity clothes? You bet – most of the time. I occasionally wear shirts from my pre-pregnancy days, but I’m mostly wearing all maternity clothing right now. So thankful for my friends who outfitted me this pregnancy.

Stretch Marks? None yet.

Sleep: I’m sleeping pretty well and loving it. However, I’m definitely finding myself more sleepy in the third trimester. Some days doing just a little leaves me exhausted. Other days I can accomplish a lot. I guess that is to be expected at this point.

Miss Anything? Soft cheese.

Movement: Movement has gotten much stronger. I mean, I always thought it was pretty strong, but occasionally it  feels as if Little Miss O is beating her way out of me.

Food cravings or aversions: Both are the same as before. No aversions right now. Most of what I’m interested in eating is sweets like fruit or ice cream.

Symptoms: Normal stuff. I’m uncomfortable while sleeping sometimes. If I over do it my feet start to really hurt. I waddle when I walk. I pee a lot. That’s it, folks. Honestly, I still feel great.

Belly button in or out? In still. I don’t really think it can go out, but the inside of my belly button is a bit more pronounced if that makes any sense.

Wedding rings on or off? The rings are off and locked up somewhere very safe. Such a bummer. Last week we had a few chilly says in Massachusetts, so I thought, “Great, I can put my rings back on.” Nope. They wouldn’t slide over my knuckle. Oh, well. I’ll see them soon enough.

Mood: I’m getting a bit nervous overall about delivery and infancy in general. Overall though, I’m still happy and feeling great. I have noticed that I’m feeling a bit more sensitive to things. I might personalize someone’s comments or get hurt by something unintentional.

Looking forward to: the one year anniversary of our wedding this weekend.

Thoughts: Many people have asked me if I’m ready for this baby to get here. Nope – not yet! Honestly, I really enjoy this pregnancy. As curious as I am about this baby, I’m happy to let her grow a little bit longer. I’m going to enjoy every moment in the next six weeks.

    Look at you, all happy and glowing 🙂 I would be nervous as hell about delivery and infancy as well… but I have no doubt in my mind that you’ll be a rockstar through all of it!

      Aww, you’re the best. Thanks for your faith in me, San. I mean, the way I look at it, I’m going to have to survive labor and delivery one way or another!!
