Pregnancy Update: 34 Weeks


How many weeks are you now?
34 weeks, 6 days - I'm now on WEEKLY Doctor appointments! Y'all...how has the time flown by so fast?? I can't believe it's almost over!
 
Baby's size?

Pineapple per the What to Expect app.

Weight:
I gained back the pound I lost - total of 24 pounds gained so far! Right on track for the 25-35 pound weight range!


Symptoms:
This week, I really started "feeling" pregnant - I think the third trimester has finally hit me! I'm still enjoying being pregnant in general, though...and I'm no where near the stage of "get this baby out of me"! :)

Still having the occasional heartburn.

This week, my back has started to ache on a regular basis depending on how I'm sitting and the baby's position.


Really, the only way I feel 100% comfortable is when I'm lying down in my snoogle....which gives me more reasons to take naps...no problem or complaining here!

Still no ankle swelling or stretch marks and my BP has been on track this entire pregnancy! (So happy about both!)

I also received the Tdap vaccine on Tuesday afternoon. It caused arm soreness (actually, it's still sore) but no other side effects.  My doctor recommended it for me as well as anyone who will be in close contact with the baby on a regular basis...like Jason. He attempted to get one on Tuesday too, but our insurance wouldn't cover both of us in the same day (so silly), so he will have to go back and try again soon. The main reason for receiving the vaccine is to prevent the spread of whooping cough to Brayden (which can be deadly to babies).

Cravings?
Peanut Butter and Jelly has been my lunch all week! :)

Also, I really really like peanut butter ritz crackers....yummmm...must be something with the peanut butter! 

Aversions?
Broken record...still fish!

Sleep?
I find that I'm needing more hours per night although the sleep I'm getting now used to be sufficient. Even though I get a "full" night's sleep, I still wake up groggy. I'm definitely looking forward to sleeping in this weekend! I wake up every few hours to turn over but I fall right back asleep.

Purchases?
Yeah...so I shopped around at JCPenney online and couldn't help myself. They had a TON of Disney Baby stuff on clearance and although Baby Seal has a sufficient amount of smaller clothing, he doesn't have much in the larger sizes (18-24 months)....so I purchased a few things!

I also think I finally pieced together his coming home outfit! So excited!

Oh yes, and I ordered curtains for his room! I can't wait to get it all pieced together!

What I Miss:
Walking fast and being able to get somewhere in a hurry. 

What I'm looking forward to:
Sleep this weekend (hopefully)!

Best Moment of the Week:
Hands down my baby shower! My friends and family BLEW my mind with everything they put together! Baby Seal also received pretty much everything he needs to begin his start in life....we are so blessed! I can't wait to share the official pictures with you guys!!



Until next week...thanks for following along! :)

  3. Your pregnancy has flown by! Seems like yall were just face timing us with the announcement! I didn't start feeling like "get it out" until about 37 weeks, but it was also really hot. Yay for curtains! I hope you got blackout ones. We even added an extra layer of blackout onto EK's

    1. Isn't that crazy how fast it's gone by? I couldn't imagine being pregnant in the summer here! I'm grateful for the cool days for sure!

  4. The baby shower looks like fun! I don't think I hit the "get the baby out" stage until 37/38 weeks. Even then, I was a little sad because I knew I wouldn't feel the baby kicks on the inside for much longer. :)

    1. Yeah that's kind of a bittersweet feeling! Although I'm excited to meet him, I'm sad that this stage will be over soon!
