a little, or not so little, baby bump catch up.

34 weeks

think to say "little" here would be an understatement, Our "little" lady has got me expanding at unnatural rates as of late and the statement "about to pop" comes to mind. 

Baby is now the size of: A cantaloupe.  Baby is around 4.75 lbs and almost 18 in long.
Total weight gain: 22 lbs
Maternity clothes: no, stretchy things do the trick just fine
Sleep: awful - cannot seem to ever get comfortable, it takes 6 pillows for me to fall asleep...waking up numerous times to use the restroom and picking up 4 out of the 6 pillows that fell on the floor trying to get comfortable again. Seriously I miss sleep and I'm not getting it back for a LONG time.
Cravings: Fresh fruit, chocolate, wine.  Sounds like a perfect summer afternoon to me.
Exercise: I told myself that I would be more on top of it this pregnancy, but who am I kidding....I have no energy, the little free time I have when Sienna naps I spend plopped on the couch with my feet up
Pregnancy aches & pains: Bad nerve pain down my leg...It started after my Rhogam shot - I wish I didn't HAVE to get it. If you know me, you know my take on vaccines in general.
Worst moment this week: Sienna hitting those terrible TWOs badly this week...her first punishment.
Best moment this week: Being able to switch back to the midwife that delivered Sienna. I was so upset when she left the practice I was at and I couldn't follow her for insurance reasons, but we just switched this week so I can have her again, seriously such a huge relief with my labor anxieties
Looking forward to: Another baby appt, setting up her co-sleeper and dresser. I haven't done much yet as far us setting up so it will be fun to take out those itty bitty clothes again!


  1. I feel all your pains mama! We are almost there though thank goodness. And you do look beautiful!

  2. You look great! Looking forward to meeting baby girl. I have a feeling she's going to look just like her big sis. :)

  3. adorable!! Hope I can look that great when I get to 34 weeks :)

  4. You look great mamma...
    I cannot wait to see whom she looks like you or Daniel or a bit of both :)
    Sienna is a doll baby so I know this new little bundle will be just as cute..


Your sweet words always make my day! :) Thank you.
