Pregnancy Update - 34 Weeks!



Pregnancy Catch Up  
#sweetbabyk


 
How far along: 34 weeks, 4 days

Size of Baby: approx. 17 in. & 5 lbs!

Symptoms: Oh how I have hit the fun part of pregnancy. I'm well into the third trimester and everything is achey and painful and I've lost my 2nd trimester energy. Boo! But that just means it's almost over and we get to see Josie so soon! My iron levels are still really low so I have to take a stronger dose of supplement so please pray that my levels go up before birth!

Hubby: He has been so supportive with me not feeling well lately and we have been preparing for the natural, medication-free childbirth that he is so excited about!

Total weight gain: So far in this pregnancy, I've gained 13 lbs.
 
Maternity clothes: Oh yes. All the time, sweatpants and my hubby's tshirts. Haha.  
 
 
Sleep: I switched sides with my husband and somehow it has helped so much with my sleep. I used to get about 4 hours and then be up for good and it was horrible. I still get up about 8 times during the night to potty but at least I can sleep a bit later!

Best moment of this week: We had our maternity photos this weekend which I cannot wait to share next week! Also, my sister and I made a hobby lobby trip to get fabric for headbands for sweet Josie girl. We're about to start making them today.. so excited!
Also, my family has helped us get her nursery into shape.. we love it!


 
Miss anything: energy :)

Movement: She is so active still which is amazing to me but now she is so big that her kicks are pretty painful which makes me laugh.. such an active little girl. Funny story: this morning, I had my coffee cup resting on my belly as I was blogging and she tried kicking it off. She hates when anything is touching my stomach, she always hits and kicks it until I move, haha! Sassy already!
 
Food cravings: EVERYTHING! My doctor actually instructed me to eat more so no complaints about that ;)  
 
Anything making you queasy or sick: It has taken me 8 months but I can finally say that nothing really makes me nauseous anymore!

Have you started to show yet: Oh yes! HUGE. I am all belly!!
 
Gender: A GIRL! Josie Kate :) 

Happy or moody most of the time: I've been struggling with some hormone changes in this new third trimester.. it's not easy!

Looking forward to: Seeing her sweet face in 6 or less weeks!

  6. Those pregnancy hormones. Oh my! I do not remember being grouchy when I was pregnant with Jack but I am totally feeling it creep up with this one. I want to tell people what I think with no filter - not a good idea. ha.

    Glad all is going well. Praying for your iron levels. Xo!
