34 Weeks

How far along? 34w4d
Gender: Girl
Weight Gain? 28 pounds
Maternity Clothes?  Clothing has becoming a literal challenge now if it's not maternity.  I'm in a lot of Joe's comfy clothes like sweat shirts and t-shirts and my options are really starting to dwindle as far as non-maternity clothes of my own are concerned.  I refuse to buy anymore so I'll just have to do the best I can with what I have, might be a lot of rewearing & probably sporting yoga pants at some point at work.  I was lucky enough to win a $50 Pink Blush gift card through my girl Caroline this past week and the night I got the card they had a 20% off sale so I got a new shirt and a nursing robe for just over $5!  Thanks Caroline!
Stretch Marks? None!
Belly button in or out?  Flat
Sleep:  Still a hit or miss as usual.  I finally ordered a new Crane humidifier, ours was making a really loud noise and was 4 years old so I think it had seen it's better days.  It had been keeping me up at night and not helping me sleep at all so I'm hoping with a new quieter one I can get some relief from the congestion.  I've been using DoTerra Breathe in my oil diffuser too which does help.
Best moment this week:  My shower!  I posted a recap so check that out for all the details and tons of photos.  It was seriously the BEST!  We also had our water birth class on Tuesday night which I thought was really good.  Our doula came with us and the class was really small, only 4 couples total.  Our hospital has one room with a hard birthing tub so as long as no one is using it that will be what we will use, otherwise they have 2 really nice blow up pools.  Tonight we have infant CPR, Baby Talk which is newborn care, and car seat safety and then we will be done with  all of our prenatal classes!
Symptoms:  Back pain, sore feet if I'm up for too long, difficulty breathing and moving, peeing constantly.  Heart burn has officially started and has caused me to be up at night most of the night, I don't think I can take enough Tums.  My hands have also been swelling some fierce at night and becoming so numb I can't even feel them.  I think I do have some slight carpel tunnel which is normal.  I've been able to wear my wedding ring during the day but if I don't take it off at night it gets stuck.
Miss Anything?  I was pretty jealous of everyone at my shower who could indulge in a mimosa while I couldn't.  
Movement?  Still moving pretty regularly but I can tell she is running out of space now.
Cravings?  Sweets as usual.  Other than that, nothing really crazy.
Queasy or sick?  Noting at all!
Looking forward to?  I have a doctors appointment this afternoon which I'm looking forward to followed by our last classes.  It's been an exhausting week already and it's only Wednesday so I'm really actually looking forward to a pretty quiet weekend.  Joe will be starting 7 12's on Monday for about 3-4 weeks (I know, could the timing be any worse!) so I won't see much of him the last few weeks before baby girls arrival but I feel like we've gotten all the big pieces in place that he needs to be there for, minus her actual arrival.  He will make some really good money over the next month but it will be tough for both of us I'm sure. 


  1. Take Zantac for the acid reflux! It works so much better than tums and is pregnancy approved!

  2. you look adorable :) I am 31 weeks and the back pain is unreal :( We are so close!!!

  3. Getting there!! Crazy to think she be here so quickly!!

  4. I second the Zantac for heart burn! Worked wonders for me rather than tums. I also wore Michael's clothes towards the end of my pregnancy too! Your getting to the home stretch, yay!

  5. i hope the next 3-4 weeks go well with Joe working so much.
    i wear KC's clothes now haha so i'm sure i will wear them when pregnant as well.

  6. I hope the next month so well for you! She will be here before you know it.
