Updated Baby Bump Collage

I posted a baby bump collage at around 27 weeks, but added the last few weeks to it yesterday. I look like I got quite a bit bigger from last week to this week. Its crazy how fast he's growing.

34 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 34 Weeks as of yesterday.

Size of Baby: He weighs around 4 3/4 pounds now (the weight of a cantaloupe) and is 18 inches long from head to heal.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: As of my last appt. I had gained around 27 pounds total. I have another Dr. appt. on Monday, so we'll see if that number has changed at all. Hopefully not!!

Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity clothes, and I'm even growing out of most of the maternity clothes I have! I will be so happy to wear regular clothes again.

Gender: Its a BOY!! Jackson Thomas Smith

Movement: Yes!! He is still moving a lot and it even hurts sometimes now. His movements are big and strong now and I can even sometimes see what looks like an elbow or a knee skim across my stomach. :-)

Food Cravings: Ice Cream!!  :-)

What I miss: Being able to wear my wedding ring and getting a good nights sleep!! I know I should probably get used to the lack of sleep. I'm sure I'll be sleep deprived for quite a while after he's born.

Sleep: Still not sleeping great. Just can't seem to get comfortable and I am having to get up a lot to use the restroom.

Symptoms: Feeling really tired lately and just down right uncomfortable.

Best Moment this week: Getting some things clean and organized around the house, doing a little shopping for Jackson (Carters was having a 50% off sale!!), and just spending time with family on Labor Day.

What I am looking forward to: Getting our maternity pictures taken and my shower this Saturday and meeting our sweet baby boy in just about 6 more weeks!!
