Baby Girl - Week 34


 Baby Blog

How Far Along: 34 weeks

Maternity Clothes: Yup.

Best Moment This Week: Hitting 34 weeks seems big because we only have 6 weeks left to go. But probably the best moment is going through her little clothes from her shower. I started taking the tags off her clothes and prepare to wash them so we can get them put away. Do her laundry makes her coming even more real. I just can’t wait to meet her!

Gender: Girl!

Movement: Lots of movement. I often have a foot or butt in my ribcage, but I love feeling her move!

Size and Development: Baby girl is about 4.5-5 pounds and is around 18 inches long - about the size of a butternut squash! Her lungs are still developing, and she can recognize and react to simple songs, so I guess I should start singing her lullabies!

Food Cravings: Hot chocolate. I’ve been getting a little tired of having to drink mainly decaf, so hot chocolate has sounded really good lately. I also have really gotten into hot chocolate made with chocolate almond milk.

What I Miss: I miss flipping over in bed with ease. :D I sleep well, but toss and turn often, so flipping over has become quite the task.

Sleep: My sleep is really good – until last night when I got really sick. I think it’s a virus of some sort – so much for getting the flu shot. HA.

What I am looking forward to: My San Diego baby shower is this Saturday. I have a couple of friends coming from out of town for it, and I’m so excited to celebrate our baby girl with our SD friends.

Symptoms: Some heartburn and feeling a bit uncomfortable. She’s getting heavy, and rolling over in bed is becoming quite the task. Also, I may have had a couple of Braxton Hicks contractions. Since I’ve never had contractions before, I’m not sure that’s what it was, but it’s definitely possible.
