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 babycenter.com) 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!! :-)

You look great Amy! I'm jealous of others who don't suffer from fat face!!! Can't wait to see her face!

I can't believe you're already 34 weeks! I feel like our pregnancies are just flying by. You are so much farther along with everything than I am. We have nothing done in the nursery, no names and no clothes. Ahhh!!
