How far along: 34 weeks
Total weight gain: I'm up to 205
Stretch marks: possibly some new, hard to tell
Sleep: vivid dreams, some insomnia, nightmares
Best moment of this week: Our friends who had found out they were pregnant a few weeks ago saw the heartbeat after a blighted ovum scare, so happy for them! We'll have babies very close in age :)
Miss anything: I started a no sugar kick, so I'm missing sugar now
Movement: Yep, all the time now! Getting strong kicks, especially when there is something on my belly.
Food cravings: coffee!
Symptoms:I've had a lot more cramping, went in to see the doc about it, she ran some tests including a preterm labor swab. All negative, so she said let's just wait and see if little girl is just getting ready to make her appearance. My hips and belly hurt when I'm sleeping. Heartburn has calmed down, maybe she is dropping? Overall just getting more difficult to do things. I'm getting more emotional and anxious. Even had a few mini-panic attacks. So tired. Doesn't matter how much sleep I get, I'm always tired, which I find is making everything exponentially harder, even minor tasks. I've also started to get the hot flashes. It has been as low as the 30's and I actually find those more comfortable temps. I can't complain much after suffering through this last time in the dead of summer. Lastly, I've had a few cases of bending over and standing up causing dizzy spells and seeing stars.
Gender: Baby girl, Lorelei
Labor signs: I'm going to say the cramping is an early sign of labor.
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: Off
Happy or moody most of the time: First time I'm getting a bit moody instead of just happy, getting nervous and stressed a lot more often.
Looking forward to: I just ordered her crib yesterday, should find out today when we'll get it in! No doubt sometime after she is born but it will be nice to have it when we eventually need it
