So at this point, I’m 35 weeks and one day. We spent five days in Evansville earlier this week and have been playing catch up ever since. But the photo and text were all written at 34 weeks.
Size of Baby: Cantaloupe
Total Weight Gain: 29 pounds — and measuring 32 weeks. I really do think Amelia is going to be a little nugget.
Maternity Clothes?: Are there any other type of clothes out there?
Stretch Marks? Still none.
Sleep: I have to say (and hopefully this doesn’t jinx anything), I’ve been sleeping incredibly well — falling asleep fast and staying asleep, except for my once-a-night bathroom break. If I sleep too long on my left side, though, the back pain wakes me up. So there’s that.
Best Moment of the Last Two Weeks: My sweet friends threw me a Sprinkle at the beginning of the month. It was so nice to celebrate Amelia with them and to get a few gifts that will be just hers, instead of Charlotte’s hand-me-downs.
Miss Anything?: A life without back pain.
Movement: Her movement is still the same. Lots of bigger movements, and she’s been getting the hiccups a lot more lately. Poor thing.
Food Cravings: Same — blood orange soda and popcorn.
Any Food Aversions: Last time I stated that I was experiencing a lack of appetite. Yeah…that’s not happening anymore. I’m eating a lot more but still staying away from chicken and fish.
Labor Signs: Again, occasional Braxton Hicks.
Symptoms: Mid-back pain that is getting worse every day, it seems. This is, without a doubt, my biggest pregnancy complaint. What makes it even worse is that laying flat for a time feels awesome, but that usually brings on heartburn. It feels best when I’m up and moving about, which is exhausting. Ahhhh — six (or seven) more weeks?!
Belly Button? Still in.
Wedding Rings? All rings are off.
Happy or Moody? Probably more moody than happy, which is what happens when you’re in pain all of the time.
Looking Forward To: Not being pregnant! Noticing a theme? We’ve also made great strides in decorating the nursery, and that makes me super happy. I flip on the light in there every night before bed just to look at it one more time. We can’t wait to have a baby in there!
No, Charlotte will not be making an appearance in the 34 week post. These were taken at about 7:30 a.m. before leaving for Evansville. No one was really feeling the “photo shoot” — myself included. No makeup or hair done. #iwokeuplikethis
