34 weeks (in 1.5 days)

Yikes! I'm such a slacker....

How far along: let's call is an even 34 weeks, which I will be the day after tomorrow

How big is baby: According to the Bump, (which likes to compare baby to fruits and veggies) baby boy is the size of a durian (wtf is that??). What to Expect App says a pineapple, but that will probably change Friday

Total weight gain: not sure, I stopped weighing myself at home even though my scale seems to be more forgiving then the doctor's. I think it's about 20lbs give or take a couple

Sleep: actually better, thank goodness! I think it's because I worked a lot last week and we were very busy over the weekend so I was exhausted. I do get uncomfortable on occasion and it will take a while to find a semi comfortable position and be able to fall back asleep

Maternity Clothes: is that a serious question? Funnily enough I did wear a pair of pre-pregnancy convertible pants (or as my dad likes to call them, shlongs LOL) over the weekend. They were a little big before, but I could wear them under my bump and only had to unbutton when I was sitting in the car

Food cravings : anything sweet....candy bars, ice cream, pastries, all those goodies!

Food Aversions: no, a lot of days I'll eat everything in front of me and then start thinking about my next meal

Challenges: moving comfortably

Movement: he's been so hyper lately! I love it most of the time, but sometimes I just want a minute of peace....does that sound like a mom talking or what? LOL

Boy or Girl?: Baby boy

What I’m looking forward to: Maternity pictures in a week and a half!

What I miss: sleeping comfortably and not having to pee every 20 min

Next appt: Bi-monthly OB appt on Friday


1. Baby shower was amazing!! My mom and MIL did an unbelievable job putting it together and I had a blast. There was a ton of people there and this baby got crazy spoiled. We don't really have to worry about buying very many things. I was exhausted afterwards, but it was totally worth it. It was also great to see people I hadn't seen for awhile. Unfortunately with being the guest of honor doesn't leave much time to catch up with people.

2. The whole job thing is in limbo. I'm working part time which is good for now. I'm not sure if they're going to have a permanent position for me or what so I'm kinda letting it go until after the baby gets here.

31 weeks

So once again I've been terrible about the weekly updates, but one week has been pretty much like the next so you're not missing anything :-)

How far along: 31 weeks

How big is baby: According to the Bump, (which likes to compare baby to fruits and veggies) baby boy is the size of a pineapple. What to Expect App says a head of lettuce, but that will probably change tomorrow

Total weight gain: good question...20 maybe? I didn't gain anything between my last dr's visits, but she wasn't concerned about it

Sleep: last night was terrible....no, that's an understatement. I've been sick the last 3 days or so and last night I slept maybe 2-3 hours. I'd love to go back to sleep, but I can't breathe and my body won't let me sleep if I can't breathe through my nose :-(

Maternity Clothes: you betcha

Food cravings : nothing lately

Food Aversions: not that I can think of

Challenges: being sick and uncomfortably pregnant.

Movement: he's pretty active unless I'm up and moving around. It makes me think he's going to be one of those babies that you have to constantly move around with and as soon as you sit or set them down they freak out

Boy or Girl?: Baby boy

What I’m looking forward to: Getting over this cold

What I miss: sleep

Next appt: Bi-monthly OB appt on the 19th


1. I lost my full time job :-( terrible timing...I still have my part time job, but it's not really enough to make ends meet. I've applied for unemployment and am waiting on that. There may be another dr buying the practice and we may have jobs with him, but right now everything is up in the air and it's sooooo stressful.

2. AJ was able to feel the baby (other then just getting kicked in the back at night). They actually seemed to be playing a game with each other. Baby would kick, AJ would push back and baby would kick again, super cute!

3. My mom and AJ's aunt are coming this weekend to paint the nursery! My mom is bringing the glider my sis-in-law gave us and my mom recovered for us. After they paint we can set up the crib. My sis-in-law also refinished dressers she gets from Craigslist and she is aid she wanted to do one for the baby's room so that's going to take care of all the nursery furniture which is awesome (especially with the uncertain job future).

4. Baby shower is next weekend! I can't believe it's almost here, when we set the date it seemed so far away, now it's just around the corner.

That's all I've got, if I'm lucky I'll be back next week for another update, but I'm not holding my breath ;-)
