Week 34: Honeydew

"Baby’s senses are continuing to improve -- when light peeks in through your (extremely) stretched belly, those tiny eyelids and irises blink and dilate. And, baby can now recognize and react to simple songs… time to start practicing your lullabies! Growth (at least inside your womb) is starting to slow, and you may notice baby descend into your pelvis at the end of this month."

How far along? 34wks & 6 days!

Maternity clothes? Love, love, love my Liz Lang maternity tank top. Oh and I also live in my swim suit, who knew that I would actually enjoy putting on a swimsuit at 34 weeks pregnant!

Stretch marks? It's official, I have a stretch mark. It is not too terrible and I'm putting lotion/oil on it like crazy.

Sleep? I get up at least 4 times at night to pee, then it takes me another hour to get back to sleep, and then this little guy kicks me awake...good times! We're planning on transitioning our 2 furkitties out of our bedroom at nights starting tomorrow...makes me a little sad but I don't want them blaming the baby.

Best moment this week? We had a blast taking maternity pics on Saturday!

Movement? This baby enjoys kicking my ribs - they seriously feel bruised...or broken. I've been having to ice them and I find it funny when I can feel him scurrying away from the cold. Move down baby.

Food cravings? GIVE ME FRUIT - strawberries, cherries, watermelon, YUM! Still this. Oh and I despise all of those 99 cent frosty comercials.

Gender? It's a Boy!!

Labor signs? Braxton Hicks are continuing...

What I miss? SLEEP and not being kicked in the ribs.

What I'm looking forward to? Finally meeting this little guy who is breaking my ribs!

Weekly Wisdom: I highly recommend seeing a chiropractor who specializes in the webster technique...I <3>

Milestones: Braxton Hicks continue. Our nursery is finished. We took maternity pics.

Emotions: Looking forward to not being so bipolar!

34 weeks & 6 days pregnant
