How far along: 34 weeks and 3 days
Baby Size: A butternut squash (15.2 – 16.7 inches and 2.5 – 3.8 lbs) or a head of lettuce (19 inches, 3.9 lbs) [the first stat is from TheBump.com, the second is from WhatToExpect.com]
Weight gain: Up around 17lbs or so. Dr. is good with it so I am good with it.
Workouts: The past week hasn’t been the best. Whatever I came down with on Sunday hasn’t left yet, OR I’m dealing with some crazy heartburn (which I’m thinking is exactly what it is)…but I haven’t been eating a whole lot so I haven’t had a ton of energy…The last time I was at the gym was last Thursday (Thanksgiving day) at CrossFit Charleston…I’m hoping to make it in tomorrow! But it wasn’t all bad, made it several times the week before 🙂
Just doing some Push Jerks. 75lbs.
Maternity clothes: Yes.
Stretch marks: Nothing.
Sleep: Not great, not terrible. I could stand for it to be a bit more solid – you know – minus all the wake ups to pee or roll over or whatever, but I guess it could be worse.
Gender: It’s a BOY!
Movement: All the time. Hiccups, kicks, punches, rolls. It was so much the other day that I took a video…it was amazing. I’ll try to post it one of these days 🙂
Food cravings: Cereal, peanut butter, sweets…pretty much anything that isn’t good for me. Oh well. Not much longer!
Aversions: Doing good as of right now!
Labor Signs: Some braxton hicks, but nothing unusual.
What I miss: Decent lung capacity. I just get winded very easily. And pants with zippers 🙂
Symptoms: Nothing unusual…headaches, braxton hicks, tired, etc.
Nursery: Well, the paint is on the wall and the crib and mattress are in the nursery (still in boxes though)….we’ll get there soon 🙂
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Mood: This week hasn’t particularly been the best but it’ll pass.
Best moment this week: Sarah’s (my sister) shower in Roanoke was great!! Everyone who said they would show up showed up and it was just a great party. Sarah looked amazing, as always!
Bumps – 10 days apart!
They (my sisters) also did a little ‘sprinkle’ for me, which was so very sweet.
And Melissa’s shower two weekends ago went off without a hitch and everyone had an amazing time. Melissa was so glowy and beautiful and everyone just adored seeing her in her mommy-to-be glory 🙂
Looking forward to: Christmas of course!!
