Bump Date - 34 Weeks!

How far along: 34 Weeks!!
42 days to go till my due date!
Baby Size: The size of a cantaloupe, weighs a little over 4.75 pounds , and is almost 18 inches long.

Weight gain:  14 pounds 

Maternity clothes: mostly all maternity

Stretch marks: nothing new that I can see
Sleep: getting up several times a night to use the restroom, ok most nights.  My cold is mostly gone, the coughing gets really annoying.  The coughing is worse the more I talk and I am sure my husband would enjoy less talking from me.  :) 
Gender: Baby BOY!!

Movement: All the time and loving it!  

Best moment this week: doctor appointment on Wednesday, hearing his heartbeat is a wonderful sound and hearing that he is growing at a perfect pace is just what I wanted to hear yesterday!
Looking forward to: my third baby shower on Saturday that my mom and sister are throwing for us!!!

Food cravings: fresh fruit, mexican food, iced tea ( when I am hungry, my appetite is still not all there)
  Anything making you queasy or sick: nothing, just not really an appetite (still)
Labor Signs: None, let's keep it this way for another 4+ weeks!
What I miss: NOT using the bathroom every 5 seconds (at least that's what if feels like) and my energy
Symptoms: just the same as always, but I am not complaining.  I had a pretty easy pregnancy (except for the morning sickness), but other than that, it's been great!  My left foot swells everyday, but it's nothing that I can't fix with an ice pack and propping that foot up.

Nursery: almost done!!  I cannot wait to show you all!

Belly Button in or out? in/flat with my stomach, I'm ok with that!

Wedding rings on or off? On!  
my ring ON proof!  I am so glad I have been able to wear it this long!  It still fits the same as before pregnancy.

Mood: nothing too bad, just the usual.

Random Bullet Points
  • We have scheduled the rest of my doctor's appointments to the end of this pregnancy!  I cannot believe that we only have 6 weeks till the due date!
  • I am so incredibly happy with switching doctor's like we did at 20 weeks.  Best decision I've made in this entire pregnancy.
  • Everyone tell's me how tiny I am and I would have to agree.  I cannot believe that I haven't gained a ton of weight.  It's really true though, everyone woman carries pregnancy differently.
  • I need to start preparing hospital bags, car seat in car, finish baby room, photo dump my phone so it is clear for when baby boy makes his appearance, organize my desk at home, have Andy finish his list of things to do before baby
  • 42 days away is a daunting number....not going to lie
  • I've been really good about staying away from the baby stores and departments until after my showers.  
  • We are not attending a birthing class, more on that on a later date
  • I am attending a breast feeding class in August and am hoping to learn more than what I've already learned from books and the internet
  • I am looking forward to my 12 week maternity leave.....seriously I really am!  I'll take sleepless nights over work right now.  haha
  • I plan on working up until I go into labor.  I needed to start keeping a waterproof pad with me so that if my water breaks while I am working, than it wont be so embarrassing.  LOL photo greysignature_zps937d4ad0.png
