34 Weeks

How far along? 34 Weeks. 6 more weeks have come to seem like an eternity, though everyone

Total weight gain: Umm. I'm not sure. I forgot to have the nurse show me the change between my appointment at the beginning of the month and my appointment in the middle of the month. Ha. And it doesn't really bother me now. The first 6-7 months I was really aware of my weight gain (in a healthy way,) but now that I know Grace is putting on about 1/2 a pound a week and that I'm eating healthily, I don't really mind if the scale creeps upwards!

Baby Bump? Yes, She's head down now, so it's changed the shape of my bump quite a bit. Not quite as round as before but more oval like, helps me not to feel as giant as I did two weeks ago!

Maternity clothes? This is kind of a silly question now. Of COURSE! She's six weeks from coming, I better be in {mostly} maternity clothes now.

Cravings: I also think this question is rather silly, since the traditional craving period of the pregnancy ended almost 20 weeks ago! I'm hungry on regular schedules again, so that's nice, but not for anything in particular.

Symptoms: Linea Nigra, stretch marks, puffy face every now and then, and SWELLING of my hands and feet {and soon to be cankles.} It's just how it is, ladies. No one said every aspect of pregnancy was beautiful, ha!

Sleep: I sleep for about 4 solid hours, then I wake up because my hips/back is hurting me. The rest of the night isn't restless, but it isn't solid sleep either. I end up having to flip back and forth, from side to side close to 10 times in the next 4 hours, which is alot easier said than done when you have a melon strapped to your belly.

Movement: Yes, though I can definitely tell they are starting to slow down/soften as she runs out of room

Gender: Grace Madeline Galloway, a precious little girl {we hope.}! Anyone else think about how crazy it would be if their baby came out the opposite gender than what you planned for? Our boy would just have to live with a pink nursery and wardrobe for awhile, ha!

Belly Button in or out? In!

What I miss: Not having the aching feeling in my legs from the swe

Best moment this week: Working on her nursery? Pictures to come when it's all done, which probably won't be until after our next pay check, so you're just going to have to be patient!

Weekly Wisdom: Do some research on what clothing brands run big or small. I had sorted everything according to what the tag said (newborn, 0-3, 3-6, and 6-12,) only to find out that some companies' newborn things are more like preemies and some companies' 0-3 are more like newborn!

Milestones: Getting her bedding in the mail, finally picking up her curtains, getting her wardrobe ordered and installed, putting away all of her clothes! The room is coming together! 2-3 more weeks and it will be done (or, it better be, ha!)

And, because you've asked for it, here's a belly shot, taken in the big city the other day, at a living museum that we were visiting.
