Total Weight Gain: +28 lbs
Continuing symptoms: slight nose congestion, back ache if I stand too long, acid reflux, aches, pains, and discomforts (especially while sleeping), infrequent but increasing Braxton hicks, charlie horse leg cramps at night, really tired, frequent urination, stretch mark, snoring
New symptoms this week: Not really a new symptom, but I just have to comment that my linea nigra now extends past my belly button and 3/4 of the way to my chest! Oh my?!?
Maternity Clothes: My maternity jeans feel tight. :( I wonder if I will even be able to wear them pretty soon!
Sleep: Continuing to be just ok but not terrible. A couple nights with insomnia this week, but there are enough decent nights that I feel pretty rested. Plus, I've just been laying around all week.
What I'm Eating: Nothing too special. Trying to get those veggies in :)
Cravings: Ice cream!
Movement: I really love these big third trimester rolls and movements!! This week a huge body part (I would guess his bottom part) jutted out really far one day - it was almost uncomfortable how hard he was pushing out! I have been a little obsessed with trying to figure out what position he is in based on movements and hiccups. However, once I think I have it figured out there is a movement somewhere else that totally throws off my guess....so either he is moving around to different positions still, or I just don't really know how to figure out what body part is what!
Special pregnancy moments: 34 weeks feels like another wonderful milestone - he is that much bigger and more mature, and I am that much closer to full term! The Braxton hicks were very, very mild this week, and I am not feeling too nervous about them or pre-term labor anymore. So thankful to be this far along!
And I am done with bedrest today - whoo-hoo!!! It wasn't too long to make me feel crazy, but I am thankful to be back to normal life!
Counting down: 3 weeks until full term, 6 weeks until my due date, and 8 weeks (at most) until this boy is in my arms!
