34 Weeks

34 Weeks!
Seriously?  We're getting close to a month away?!

How far along are you? 
34 Weeks

Total weight gain: 
I'm not loving it, but I was glad to know my bff who is 4 weeks ahead of me (and smaller than me, plus a far more healthy eater) is about the same amount of weight gain.  I haven't strictly watched my eating, but dang.  I think it's a genetic thing for those of you who don't gain more than 25-30 pounds

How big is baby?:
What to Expect says a Large Cantaloupe! 19-22" 5.5 pounds  HOLY MOLY

Maternity clothes
always...the closer it gets to my due date the less I want to spend any more money on anything new

Stretch marks?:  
So far, only on my hiney
I've been applying Palmers Cocoa Butter religiously...hoping that helps matters

Since going to 3rd shift, you would think my sleep has gotten bad...but nope, better!  I'm sleeping well during the day!

Best moment this week?:
Dr appointment Tuesday!  Pierce was once again unhappy to have the nurse dare bother him to listen to his heart.  He ran from the Doppler again!  

Starting to get less, but much more strong

Food cravings?: ice

Food aversions?:
Not too bad, kind of depends on the day, 

Labor signs?: 
NO!  Just Braxton-Hicks 
Some of them are starting to get painful like cramps.  Nothing consistent or regular.

Belly button in or out?: 
Still in, but barely!  Which is nuts, my belly button pre-pregnancy is seriously VERY deep

What I miss: 
Not being exhausted
my face shape
my body! 
Lol, this list could go on and on at this point

What I'm looking forward to: 
Meeting this little 5 weeks

What I'm not looking forward to: 
Delivery!  OMG, scared!

Pierce's STRONG movement and punches!
He kicks me if I fold my arms and rest them on the top of my belly, he does not like anything encroaching on his space!


  1. I delivered my daughter at 34 weeks. Be careful with those cramps. I cramped with all 3 of my kids and in my case they signified preterm labor. Cramps can equal actual contractions. Just make sure you mention it to your doc. Better safe than sorry :)

    1. Definitely, I mention it to him when I see him and he's never concerned lol

  2. PS- if you're talking about this pregnant friend my healthy eating habits went out the window as soon as I could keep anything down! Maybe it's the angle of the pictures, but I'm amazed/jealous you don't look like a python that's swallowed a basketball at all! :D
