baby bump: 34 weeks

 34 weeks

how far along? 34 weeks, due January 28th.

size of baby:
size of a butternut squash, about 18 inches (head to toe) and 5 pounds!

heartbeat: 135 bpm (last week).

total weight gain: + 26 lbs. I’ve been having a hard time trying to keep my weight gain down to only one pound per week. Yesterday, I started tracking how much water I’m drinking each day—which I probably should have been doing this whole pregnancy, but better late than never ;)

sleep: Would always like more… I’ve been happy to get a few naps this week as Nolan has fallen asleep better at nap-time.

movement: It’s fun to watch my entire stomach shift back and forth because an arm or leg is poking out really far!

food cravings: I’ve had a few Cokes recently (haven’t drunk them since middle school)—and they taste amazing! I made a cheeseburger the other night that was mouth-watering-good.

symptoms I have: Acid reflux when I lay down, annoying veins in my legs, slightly bloody nose in the mornings.

doctor’s appointment: Last week, I met with the doctor (as opposed to midwives), and she is just wonderful. She said that everything checked out fine.

what I’m looking forward to:
+Christmas in 5 days!
+Celebrating such a beautiful holiday with family.
+I hope to convince someone to take a few family/maternity photos of the three of us before I miss the chance.
+Finishing the baby’s room.
+Holding my baby.
+Introducing Nolan to his brother :)

  3. AWW, my firstborn was due on January 28th! He came on January 9th, 21 days early and was born at Indiana Hospital. Impossible to believe he'll be 18 soon. :( You look incredible! Mmm, Coke and cheeseburgers. Delish!

  4. You are too cute!!! You didn't look like you gain weight. I gained 35lbs when I was pregnant with my daughter. Lol!
