34 Week Bumpdate

  • How far along are you? 34 Weeks and 1 Day
  • How I'm feeling: I am sick this week so it has been sucking.  I am trying not to think about it too much but it sucks not being able to take anything to help get better sooner.  Also, my lower back is getting worse and I know that it will only keep going this way until he joins us.

  • Total weight gain:  Haven't been weighed in 2 weeks but I'm sure I've gained over 25 pounds now.  
  • How big is baby? Baby is the size of a butternut squash!

  • This week baby: is 17 1/2 inches long and weighing between 4 and 6 pounds.  He can now recognize lullabies and is peeing about a pint a day.
  • Maternity clothes: Yes
  • Sleep:  This week has been rough because of the whole being sick thing, but other than that I find that sleeping between 1AM and 5AM are my golden hours!

  • Best moment this week: Maybe not the best moment, but definitely something exciting, is that from now on they will not stop labor.  I can't believe that we could potentially meet our son any day now :)
  • Movement: He moves like crazy.  I don't have any problem with my "kick counts".  He is starting to run out of room though so the moves are more like rolls than kicks any more.
  • Food cravings: Nope. 
  • Food aversions: Nope.  
  • Belly button in or out:  STILL IN!!!!!!!!
  • What I am thankful for: I am thankful for a husband who is always there for me, especially this week when I have been sick and am a horrible patient.  :)
  • What I'm looking forward to: I'm looking forward to meeting out son.  I want him to finish cooking in there but at the same time I can't wait.  Also, I only have 10 days left of work before I start Maternity Leave :)

    1. let me know if you want me to send you a youtube video of some good stretches for your lower back/upper hips. it's been saving my life lately, and is really easy on your body. i have a good youtube prenatal yoga routine i'll do to loosen up too. sometimes all it takes is some good cat-cows to shift the uterus a little bit and ease some of that pain. sounds like you're doing good otherwise mama, congrats on hitting the "6 weeks to go" mark!

    2. Lower back pain is horrible, couple that with being sick and I bet you feel like a hot mess girl! Glad the Hubby has been a good doctor :)
