Baby Bump: Week 34

Getting closer!

How far along? 34 weeks.

Weight gain/loss: Haven't checked since last week.  I really don't want to know.

Feeling: I've had a little more energy this week, but have also been nauseated and dealing with morning sickness again this week.  And having a toddler throwing tantrums when you don't feel well is really hard.  Lots of frustration all around.  We are currently in a 2+ hour battle of wills to get a small, exhausted boy to nap.... :(

Maternity clothes?  Henceforth in this pregnancy, when I am at home I will likely be wearing Andrew's hoodies.  I mostly feel like a whale.

Sleep:  So much better this week than last.  I still wake up every couple of hours, but Lincoln slept almost all night almost every night this week.  If I could make myself go to bed when he does, I would actually get a reasonable amount of sleep.  I'm averaging 5-8 interrupted hours right now.  It's not too bad.

Food cravings:  This week all I have wanted is soup.  But canned sounds gross and I've never made any myself.  Hopefully going to give that a try tonight and see how it goes.  And conveniently, since I'm planning a soup-making marathon, I happen to have the corresponding veggie to baby's size this week on hand!

Addie is the size of a butternut squash!

Gender: Girl
 
Movement? She's very active and enjoys hanging out at the very front of my belly, so that I feel stretched and weird.  I had an anterior placenta with Lincoln so these front crazy movements are freaking me out a little.

What I miss?  Being not pregnant.  I know I'm growing a miracle and it's beautiful and I couldn't be happier.  But I hate not feeling like myself.

Best moment this week:  Drama classes are done until spring.  Big relief to have that off my plate.  I also found the surface of the kitchen counter while trying to get organized this week.  Hadn't seen it in awhile!

What I'm looking forward to:  Hopefully going to attempt to get out of the house for some fun fall activities this weekend...pumpkin patch, Enchanted Forest, etc.  I really need to get started on Halloween costumes.  Last year we looked awesome.  So far this year, I don't really even have a plan.

Next Appointment: October 24 at 34weeks, 5days.
