How far along? 34 weeks 4 days
Total weight gain/loss: I’m up like 34 pounds I feel ginormous and I keep gaining weight. Weighed myself today and lost 1 pound since last week.
Maternity clothes? Definitely. Pretty much all maternity clothes now.
Sleep? I wish. I can’t believe how frequently I wake up every night to pee! Been having heartburn too.
Stretch marks? Man … I’ve been bragging about no stretch marks this whole time and I swear like 7 of them popped up overnight!! All below my belly button. (Convenient since I can’t see them!) 😉
Best moment this week: My baby shower was yesterday!! It was SO fun! It went by WAY to fast but I had a blast. It was so nice to hang out and chat with all my favorite ladies. Leon and Harper and I got tons of awesome goodies and we feel so loved.
Miss Anything? Coffee. Bladder control – I cough, I pee. I sneeze, I pee. I laugh, I pee.
Movement: Yes! She is very active. I never have to count kicks because I always feel her moving around in there!
Food Cravings: Chocolate. salty stuff.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Raw meat still bugs me. I can’t prepare meat based foods at home.
Gender: It’s a Girl!
Pregnancy Symptoms: Swelling, Carpal Tunnel, heartburn… and some others I’d rather not talk about! The carpal tunnel is getting worse every day. My back has started hurting more. My muscles have gotten sore, especially my groin muscles and my leg muscles. All of that is still true… no new ones but the carpal tunnel and swelling in general continue to get worse. Check out these feet! 😦 When will I get my ankles back!? They packed up and scurried away a week or so ago.
Labor Signs: Nothing new! I’m very scared of pre-term labor and want her to keep cooking as long as possible!!
Wedding rings on or off? Off –way too swollen! Watch is off now too.
Happy or Moody most of the time: I’ve been happy! Getting stressed because there is still so much to do!
