34 Week Pregnancy Update

34 Week Pregnancy Update, pregnant belly, baby bump, third trimester, pregnant woman

How far along? 34 weeks 5 days
Total weight gain/measurements: 39.5” around my belly and it's really looking a lot bigger and rounder now.
Maternity clothes: Some of my maternity clothes are starting to get a little small and uncomfortable feeling...so that's awesome...not. I still have a good number of weeks to go so hopefully I'll still fit into something by then!
Stretch marks: Not yet.
Sleep: I'm still getting enough over all but it's very interrupted.
Best moment this week: We've been setting up a lot of baby things this week. We put the stroller together and figured out how to attach the infant carrier to it. We've got the changing table set up and we bought new cushions for a chair that we already had so that I have something a little less grubby to breastfeed in. We're not done yet because obviously we both have other things to do in our lives every day but we're getting there! :)

The red mark at the top of my belly is a bruise. These have been popping up randomly on my belly here and there. I don't know if they are just bruises from being pushed on and stretched or if they are a precursor to stretch marks.  Time will tell, I guess!
Miss anything? Nope.
Movement: There is a lot of rolling around going on in there and little pokey bits stick out more often now. Something was jammed into my hip for a couple of days this week so that was a little rough trying to get the baby to shift and do something else.
Food Cravings: Nope.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.
Gender: We don't know. I had a dream last night that it was a boy. Not that it means anything.
Labor signs: Nope.
Symptoms: Everything is pretty much the same, but just more. People ask how I'm feeling and I just say that I feel very pregnant but good. Everything that is strange or uncomfortable is a normal pregnancy thing so to me that doesn't mean that I feel crappy, even if my back is kind of sore or I can't eat because of heartburn. I guess I just mean that I'm having a normal pregnancy so it's fine and I feel good.
Belly button in or out? Out.
Wedding rings on or off? Still on!
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy...especially when I was able to successfully cut my toenails this week!!! Ha ha! It was NOT easy.
Looking forward to: A sunny day when Steve and I are both home so that we can figure out how to put the car seat in our car.

Thanks for reading!
