34 Weeks - Pregnancy #2

Each Sunday, I'd like to do a highlights post, including a picture, summarizing the differences in my pregnancy from week to week.  I totally "grabbed" this idea from Kelly.  I did this with my pregnancy with Hadley, as well, and I still think it is a great way to jot down the things that I don't want to forget later on.  I'll probably write these on Saturday nights and attach the picture the next day.  That way I can stay semi-technology free :)

Pregnancy Highlights:

How far along:  34 weeks - Third Trimester

Size of baby:  Baby Boy is between 19 and 22 inches crown to feet and weighs as much as a pineapple (around 5 pounds)

Total weight gain/loss:  At my appointment last Tuesday, I had lost another 1/2 of a pound, so my official weight gain this pregnancy so far is 16 pounds.

Maternity clothes:  My "typical" clothing attire is a soft sleeveless tank and soft knit shorts.  If I'm feeling super fancy or I know someone might be dropping by, I might put on a stretchy dress.  But most days, it's the former.

Gender:A less bouncy, more roll-y baby boy.

Movement:  He moves, but he really stays curled up in there.  I guess there's just not a lot of room to stretch.  Although, when he stretches, I sure know it!  Geez, my ribs take a beating.

Sleep:  Oh sleep.  I miss you.

What I miss:  Cleaning, cooking, leaving the house

Cravings:  ice cream

Symptoms: Minor back pain

Exercise: Nada.  I don't think my doctor would approve haha.

Belly Button in or out: It's still flat.

Wedding ring on or off: On :)

Happy or moody most of the time:  Mostly happy :)

Looking forward to:  Getting out of the house again on Wednesday for my appointment and then, assuming all continues to go well, visiting my parents for a few days and seeing friends and family at a small family shower in my hometown.

Best moment this week:  Hearing the doctor say that if I follow her directions, I can go to my family shower this weekend!

It was another Sunday of get up, get dressed, dab on some makeup, take the picture, and promptly change back into "comfy" clothes, and then wait patiently for The Husband to get to church and begin our Skype session.


  1. We're about to leave for church. You sure look cute in your adorable pregnancy top and shorts. We're excited that things are still going very well and we're looking forward to your being here for a few days. Tell Baby Boy we love him (and you, too).
