34 Week Bumpdate

How Far Along: 34 Weeks (5 more weeks to go!)
(You can check out my 34 week post from when I was pregnant with Jackson here.)

 Size of Baby: (According to 34 week: Your baby is about the size of cantaloupe. Your melon-sized munchkin now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds and is almost 18 inches long from head to heel.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 29 pounds total. 

Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity clothes and growing out of some of them. :-( I am so ready to be back in normal clothes again.

Gender: Its a GIRL!! Our sweet Avery Rose.

Movement: Yes, she's moving around quite a bit. Her movements are quite strong and actually hurt a little sometimes.

Food Cravings: No real cravings this week, just really thirsty as I've been this entire pregnancy.

What I miss: Just being able to do normal things without feeling tired or out of breath. I also miss being able to wear my wedding rings, which I haven't been able to wear for quite some time now. :-(

Sleep: Not great. I'm having to get up several times a night to use the restroom and just can't seem to get comfortable sometimes.

Symptoms: Just feeling very tired and huge. :-( I'm also having a few Braxton Hicks contractions, heartburn and some swelling in my legs, feet and hands. I also think the pregnancy rash I had with Jackson may be back again this time around. :-( I will check with my Dr. next visit to be sure, but I'm thinking that's what it is. I just have a few itchy red bumps on my belly and it's just really annoying.

Best Moment this week: Getting together with friends over the weekend.

What I am looking forward to: Getting the last few decorations hung to complete the nursery and of course, meeting her on (or before) April 28th!! :-)
