Pregnancy Update: 34 Weeks

34w 5d.

How far along? 34 weeks (I do these a week behind as a recap of the previous week, so I'm actually 35 weeks today.)

Total weight gain/loss: +1.6 lbs over the last two weeks makes me 145.8 lbs. That's not too bad for someone who's been on a babymoon and on "vacation." I've gained 34 lbs since conception and I feel like I'll gain another 5-10 lbs (give or take)- at least!

Maternity clothes: Yes... but now even the ones I bought are starting to be skimpy on my belly area. I can't catch a break! 4-8 weeks left!

Stretch marks? YES! I have real stretch marks now and I know I'll only get more.

Sleep: Sleep is ok. At 34w, I found sleep to be difficult. Could it be because I was in a different setting (like when I was restless when first moving back to Lowell)? Who knows. I still wake up 2-3x a night in order to use the restroom, too.

Best moment this week: Being offered help with Lamby and Cristhian!

Worst moment of the week: There was one day Lamby barely moved... it was because I woke up sleeping on my 1/3 of my stomach! I think that gave her a run for her money and she was knocked out. She's since moved and has been as active as before.

Miss anything? Life before a slightly swollen right leg with RLS!

Movement: She moves so much!! It's actually becoming cumbersome because when she does move, it makes me immobile.

Food cravings: Nothing!!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing!!

34w 5d.

Have you started to show yet: I'm huge!

Gender Prediciton: It's a girl!

Labor signs: I've started to experience more intense pressure, much different from BH, on my lower abdomen.

Symptoms: Hemorrhoids (that aren't painful or annoying, actually)!, RLS, slightly swollen right leg/hands (I guess my intake of 3L isn't cutting it anymore!), heartburn here and there, slight lower back pain, intense upper back/rib pain... and that's all I can think of now!

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or moody most of the time? Ehh, moody (due to stress from ming).

Looking forward to: Seeing my OB/GYN!

Wednesday Update: I had my last bi-weekly appointment with my doctor... Bring on the weekly appointments! I've always measured exactly on point, give or take a day!, with my confirmed "week." As a result, I have an ultrasound scheduled for next week to check for Lamby's growth. The OB/GYN thinks she's growing quickly for her gestational age, or there's a whole lot more amniotic fluid than initially anticipated for a live fetus and a 1/4 inactive fetus. Hopefully everything checks out at my next prenatal appointment.
