34 week update
How am I feeling? VERY big and full…like baby boy/girl has expanded to touch every inch of my insides, and is still trying to do gymnastics!
I’m also having a lot more contractions – which apparently aren’t Braxton-Hicks, since B-H contrax are only supposed to last 20-30 seconds, and mine can last anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes. Fun times. I’m definitely starting to feel worn out, and even the smallest things (like walking upstairs) have become a LOT of work.
Oh, and I finally started getting the brown belly line…which combined with the blue veins and red splotches I’m already sporting makes for a very UNsexy rainbow effect on my stomach. 😉
Weight gain – +28 pounds (and gaining fast!)
Cravings – nothing new, besides ice cream at least every other night!
Upcoming milestones – my baby shower on Sunday, which I am SO ridiculously excited for. I can’t wait to spend the day with family and friends, and am equally excited to do baby laundry and pack my hospital bag post-shower.
I’m getting so ready to meet this baby. I guess it would be best if s/he waited until the 37-week (full-term) mark…but seriously, any time after that would be GREAT!
