Oh, Baby - 34 Week Update

Baby Updates

At my last appointment my midwife thought she felt the head down, but said we could do a cervical check at my next appointment (36 weeks) to be sure. We did discuss options for if baby is still transverse, but I know I still have time for baby to turn so I am trying not to worry about it. In other news, baby is over 4 pounds now and is mostly just gaining weight until the end. These last few weeks seem to drag on and on because I am so tired of being pregnant and SO READY to meet this baby. We have names picked out this time (instead of just a list like last time), so as soon as the baby gets here we will know who he or she is. 🙂

Oh, Baby - 34 Week Update

Weight Gained

Still 166 at my last appointment, but I think I’ve gained a bit since then. So far, I’ve gained 33 pounds. Maybe I won’t hit 40 pounds like I did last time.


Even walking is getting difficult now, but I love my prenatal yoga! I still try to walk when I can, but everything hurts and it is so humid here right now that being outside for ten minutes makes me want to take a second shower! I’m hoping the humidity dies down before baby gets here because I loved going for morning walks with the stroller when Avery was first born. I did attend a 1k kids’ race that Kevin ran with Avery last weekend…does that count? 😉

Pregnancy Symptoms

Acne is apparently not going anywhere until I have this baby and my hormones return to normal. I can minimize it, but I can’t get rid of it! Oh well, I know there are much worse things than a few red bumps on my face. The humidity is still causing me a lot of swelling, mostly in my fingers and ankles. The only new addition this week is the return of pelvic pain, most likely because the baby is just moving lower and getting bigger as I get closer to my due date.

Food Aversions

Not really. Mostly, just not a lot of things sound good, but no super-strong aversions. Since I am running out of room, sometimes I think I want something, but then I feel sick after eating it and then I just don’t want it anymore.

Food Cravings

I’ve moved past my short-lived cereal craving. I really don’t have many cravings right now. I feel so full and uncomfortable all the time that it is hard to really want something.


Sleep? What is that? I am not sleeping well at night since I am just so dang uncomfortable, but I have been able to take some decent naps when Avery is napping. In fact, I’ll be doing that as soon as I finish this blog post!

Looking Forward to

Not being pregnant!

Baby/Pregnancy Related Purchases

Sorta. I am in full on nesting mode so I’ve been making freezer meals and just trying to do things around the house to make the postpartum period easier on me. Be on the lookout for a blog post covering all the ways I am preparing for baby.

Any Pregnancy Dreams

Yes! I finally had a dream I was in labor, but then I was so freaked out that I couldn’t fall asleep. :\

Any Baby Movement?

Yes, I am still trying to physically push the baby out of my ribs. It gets the hiccups a couple times a day, at least, and really gets moving around 9:00 or 10:00 at night when I want to go to sleep!
