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

Updates:

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.
