34 Weeks

How far along? 34 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: Baby had a growth spurt - my weight jumped one and a half pounds in the last week

Maternity clothes? Yes, and I've already outgrown 2 pairs of maternity pants. Monday I bought myself one new pair to help me make it all the way to the end.

Stretch marks? Still not seeing any. *knock on wood*

Sleep: Ok. I'm struggling again with side sleeping. My shoulder or hip or both will hurt - I'll flip and a short time later the same scenario will repeat.

Best moment this week: A toss up between 2 special moments. The first was getting to hear the little guy's heartbeat during our check-up on Tuesday - this never gets old. I always love it. The second occurred yesterday morning when I gave Trent a hug & kiss before heading to work. The little guy kicked hard enough as our bellies were touching that Trent felt it on his belly. I told him it must have been the baby's way of saying "I love you." :)

Movement: Baby continues to move a lot. It feels more like stretching and "Mom, I'm out of room in here" than kicking. He also reacts to belly rubs.

Food cravings: Saturday night around 8pm I was hungry and the only food I wanted was a cheese pizza from Papa John's. My dear, sweet husband went out and got exactly that for me while I stayed home and relaxed.

Labor Signs: None.

Belly Button in or out? Barely in.

Milestones: Walking for 30 minutes on Tuesday night. It was a slow pace, but I did ok. Last week we were at 20 when the round ligament pain hit and I had to call it quits.

Energy Level: Pretty high.


  1. oooh your getting close! you know what I hate more then "outgrowing" pants is when shirts get shorter and shorter.

  2. So fun to read your updates! These will be wonderful to look back on over the years. I was lucky and didn't experience any kicks...just a lot of what you're describing as stretching. It's an amazing feeling, isn't it?

  3. Yeah, I can stand those pants a few more weeks. The shirts being too short drives me INSANE. Make it stop!!! Thank goodness we only have a few more weeks. (Notice I say "a few" and not possibly 6 or 7 weeks! Hehe!)

  4. Awe that is so good to hear! I remember LOVING hearing the heart beat too!

  5. I am getting so excited for you! I can hardly wait to "meet" the little guy. :)


Thanks for leaving a comment! I enjoy reading them all. :)
