34 Week Update

How far along: 34 weeks

Gender: Boy

Weight gain: +18 lbs

Maternity clothes: Jeans and my Gap maternity leggings I’ve been living in!

Stretch marks: Nope

Belly button in or out: Out

Sleep: I’ve been sleeping great until I have to get up to pee, then it’s downhill.

Best moment this week: I packed Camden’s hospital bag this week and I started on mine! Just trying to stay ahead of myself so I’m not running around the minute before he comes to pack everything!

Miss anything: I can’t think of anything off the top of my head!!

Movement: SO, SO many big movements this week. I just hope he stays head down and doesn’t do some crazy flip in there! We don’t want him breech!

Cravings: Graham crackers with vanilla icing has been my snack all week and also white cheddar popcorn!

Symptoms: Round ligament pain, leg cramps and a few Braxton Hicks contractions

Looking forward to: It’s my mom and sister’s birthday this weekend so we will be doing a lot of celebrating! Also, we start checking this week to see if I’m dilated at all which I’m excited about (I know, sounds really strange but it feels like he could be here any time now!!)

33 Week Update

How far along: 33 weeks

Gender: Boy!

Weight gain: +17 lbs

Maternity clothes: Only in my jeans. I’ve been trying to not buy any more maternity clothes since I’m so close to the end.

Stretch marks: Nope

Belly button in or out: Out/ flat

Sleep: I’ve been sleeping SO good lately. I hope I didn’t just jinx it!

Best moment this week: My friends and family surprised me with a sprinkle this week! I was totally shocked and was not expecting it at all! They all did really well without letting it slip :)

Miss anything: Just overall feeling good.

Movement: Oh yea, still those big jabs and kicks to the ribs. I'm sure I'll miss those once he's here but right now, they can be really uncomfortable! 

Cravings: Ice cold Coke has been my thing this week. I only allowed myself one though ;)

Symptoms: Where do I begin? Braxton Hicks, round ligament pain, leg cramps, sciatic nerve pain. Those are the biggies this week.

Looking forward to: Of course I’m looking forward to actually having him but until then, I’m keeping us busy with lots of fall activities to do the last few weeks of being a family of three!

32 Week Update

How far along: 32 Weeks aka 8 MONTHS!!! How did that happen?!

Gender: Boy!!

Weight gain:  +17 lbs

Maternity clothes: Just in my jeans. I’ve been wearing a lot of sweats this week because of the cooler temps and I’ve been loving it!

Stretch marks: Nope

Belly button in or out: Out

Sleep: Pretty good. If I wake up to pee in the middle of the night, I sometimes have a hard time falling back asleep but I really can’t complain.

Best moment this week: Seeing little man in 3D at my ultrasound! He is quite handsome already ;)

Miss anything: My energy! I literally can’t keep my eyes open in the afternoons. I feel like I’m in my first trimester again!

Movement: Lots of movement right around bedtime. The movements are so big I think he’s doing flips in there!

Cravings: Just anything sweet. I made brownie/cookie bars (watch out, they are addicting!!) and I also bought some Halloween candy at the store. I also can’t get enough fruit punch to drink!

Symptoms: Nothing is really sticking out this week. My round ligament pain is much better than it has been. Just really exhausted!

Looking forward to: Everything that will be happening in the next couple months. We will be finalizing the nursery (hopefully) this weekend, getting the rest of the baby stuff out of storage, really just all the new baby stuff that is just SO MUCH FUN!

32 Week Appointment: I said last week that I had to have an ultrasound done this week to check my placenta. Well, we got good news and my placenta raised so I'm not forced into a c-section! Also, the tech said he is SO far down already that she had a hard time finding the bottom of my placenta so he’s already in position, which I feel is a good thing! They are measuring him to be 4 lbs 3 oz already so he is a little on the bigger side for being only 32 weeks along! Seeing his little profile in 3D really made it feel so real and he is SO CUTE!! I can’t wait to kiss those adorable little lips and cheeks in a few weeks!

31 Week Update

How far along: 31 weeks

Gender: Boy!

Weight gain: +16 lbs

Maternity clothes: Not much other than my capris that I’ve been wearing. Been getting cardigans for when the weather finally decides to cool off. I’m so over the 90 degrees!

Stretch marks: Nope, I’ve been steering clear of those.

Belly button in or out: Out

Sleep: Not bad when I get it. Keigan’s transition to the toddler bed hasn’t been the easiest but I’m hopeful it will start to improve as she gets used to it.

Best moment this week: Buying the rest of the items for his nursery! Can’t wait for it all to come so we can finalize his room!

Miss anything: Not missing much this week.

Movement: Lots of big movements going on now & I love every one of them.

Cravings: Lots of chocolate. My MIL made me the world’s BEST chocolate cupcakes this week and I devoured them all myself. #noshame

Symptoms: Same as last week, exhaustion and round ligament pain.

Looking forward to: I have my 32 week checkup Monday but they found out at my 20 week ultrasound that I have placenta previa so I will be getting an ultrasound done Monday morning to see if it raised (fingers crossed it has or I have to have a c-section!) but I’m so excited to see him and see how big he is now! It’s been awhile since I’ve had an ultrasound done.
