Pregnancy Update – 34 Weeks

I finally feel like I am in the homestretch of this pregnancy.  I don’t know if it’s the winter-like weather we are finally having here in NJ or Christmas decorations already popping up at the mall, but I feel like December 24th is just around the corner.  At 34 weeks I definitely feel like a whale and my belly button popped.  I have the world’s deepest belly button and it was nowhere close to popping while I was pregnant with Lucas but my belly is so much bigger this time around.  Something had to give. :)

FRIDAY –Rest Day

I took 2 rest days last week because I’m happy to report that we closed on our new house!  Since we are in a rush to move in before the baby is born, I had contractor/painter/floor guy appointments all day long on Thursday and Friday.  My daily workout had to take a backseat.

Pregnancy #1 at 34 weeks for comparison

How far along? 34 weeks + 2 days
Maternity clothes?  I am down to 3 pairs of pants and 2 shirts.  My belly is so big that the shirts are just getting too short and I don’t feel like spending anymore money on maternity clothes.
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks all the time, tired and burning hips.  Oh the end…how I loathe thee. :)
Miss Anything? Wine and sleeping
Food cravings: Nothing
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Have you started to show yet: Still look like this baby is going to be born any second.  I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow so I’ll see if my fundal height continues to be 3+ weeks ahead.  I’m betting it is! :)
