How far along?  34 Weeks
Size of Baby:  butternut squash
Total weight gain/loss: 18 lbs. according to dr. appt.
Size of belly: a smidge over 35 cm.
Baby’s heartbeat: 152 bpm
Best moment this week: We had out TN shower this week and were so blessed with the love from family and friends supporting us and who already love little one so much!
Miss Anything? Sleep and energy!  Pregnancy insomnia has hit and makes sleeping for very long impossible!  I guess it could be God’s way of preparing for no sleep 🙂 My energy level though I also so low!  It took about 3 days to recover from the shower and trip to TN, especially since I can’t sleep!
Movement: Baby is very active and I have come to find out, even at night!  When I wake up, sometimes it is hard to get back to sleep since baby is either exercising or moving furniture around in there! 🙂
Food cravings: Still all things sweet!
Anything making you queasy or sick:  Not this week!
Gender prediction:  I catch myself thinking of our baby and our boy name just fits.. I have to think about our girl name telling myself it could still be a girl, but it feels more like I have to convince myself.
Labor Signs: a little crampy
Symptoms: achy lower back, achy shoulders, can’t get comfy, exhausted, bigger appetite (at times I feel like I am a bottomless pit), insomnia,  and linea negra
Belly Button in or out? The top of it is starting to stick out a little more but still overall sort of flat.. I don’t know, its just weird looking!
Wedding rings on or off? On still.. a little hard to believe!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to:  Getting our apt fully ready for baby!  Now that we have had all the showers we are going to have before baby, it is time to get this place into shape!  We are still looking for a house, but at this point there is no possible way to be in one before baby, so little one will come home here.  Crazy thought!  So let the organizing and cleaning begin.. although I just wish I had the energy for it!  Come on nesting fairy.. kick my butt into gear! 🙂
