Today, I am 34 weeks along and the baby is the size of another one of my favorite fruits, a cantaloupe! He is gaining a lot of weight and preparing for his entrance in to the world! According to babycenter, he is gaining more fat and his testicles are making their descent to their resting place. I don’t know why, but I find this amusing.
How far along?: 34 weeks 1 day.
Total weight gain/loss: I am up 3 more pounds from last week, which puts my total at +22. I am definitely gaining way more weight now, in the last trimester, than in the first 2. Supposedly, your appetite is supposed to lessen from here on out, but I really haven’t experienced that. I have been trying to eat filling foods, like eggs, beans and oatmeal in the morning so that I am not as hungry throughout the day, but it doesn’t seem to matter.
The Bump: I don’t have a photo for this week. I’ll try and update this over the weekend, so you can see the belly in all its glory.
What I’m excited about/looking forward to: Nick and I are going shopping this weekend for a bassinet and hopefully a glider. Fingers crossed we find something!
Maternity Clothes: Normally I don’t mind the muggy weather, but as a pregnant woman, I wish it would cool down just a tiny bit. If I had it my way I would walk around in my bathing suit for the next 6 weeks.
Symptoms: I am definitely back to the exhausted phase, I am tired all the time. I am also really sore, I think a big contributor is the stairs to the condo + the weather, so I am trying to take it easy. I also have this constant pain in my right calf. It’s always sore, but at random times it’ll become painful with no notice.
Labor Signs: Nothing yet.
Belly Button in or out?: Still an inny, yay!
Milestones: None this week.
Baby B is attending his first contest this weekend, NKOTBSB. I am sure Nick wishes it was something different, but I think he will love every minute.
Today’s Question: Know anyone who needs tickets? I am still selling 3!
