April Fool's!! ;) I really wanted to pull a fast one on some family members today... but Mason said no. Psh... some people just don't know how to have a good time... :) Anyway - I'm at 34 weeks today and that's no joke. Things are starting to get real over here...
This week baby girl is the size of a...
What's Baby Up To?
- Her fat layers, that will keep her warm once she is born, are filling out making her more round!
- Her skin is smoother than ever! (My little botox baby!) :)
- As she grows the amount of amniotic fluid in her sac is decreasing so we should be able to see her body parts... (Hmm.. that sounds equal parts adorable and frightening...)
She is really beginning to get a little aggressive with the movements. One night I tossed my phone up in the air because she moved one of her limbs across the lower part of my rib cage and it totally freaked me out! She's definitely starting to explore the outer boundaries of her little bubble, but I keep trying to push her back towards the center. ;)
Symptoms: A little more tired now. I usually feel ready for a nap by the time I get home from work. Sleeping is also getting a tad uncomfortable. Flipping sides in the middle of the night is a little more cumbersome with a 5 lb brick tethering you down.
Cravings: Nothing new, although yesterday I impulsively decided to buy like 10 greek yogurts in a variety of flavors to taste test. I'll let you know the results... ;)
Weight Gain: 19 lbs... blah... but my belly looks gigantic to me today, so I'm not surprised!
34 Week Bump Pic:
This past week, I have been trying to get all the things that I plan to take in my hospital bag purchased and gathered. I don't want to be caught off guard and have to wear some scrubby old pj's! I mean, I'd like to maintain a little of my dignity while in the hospital... from what I hear I'll have none left after the whole birthing ordeal.
Mason also installed the car seat in my car on Sunday! I'm telling you - this is getting real folks! Yikes! But overall, we're pretty much ready. Just want to give our little muffin a few more weeks to finish maturing her little lungs and then we're ready when she is! :)
6 more weeks to go! (I can't even fathom how much bigger my stomach can grow in that amount of time...)
