34 weeks

I know I am a little behind on my pregnancy posts, but just want to make sure they are on here as this is basically my pregnancy journal! 

How far along: 34 Weeks

Size of baby:  Your baby now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds (like your average cantaloupe) and is almost 18 inches long. Her fat layers — which will help regulate her body temperature once she's born — are filling her out, making her rounder. Her skin is also smoother than ever. Her central nervous system is maturing and her lungs are continuing to mature as well. If you've been nervous about preterm labor, you'll be happy to know that babies born between 34 and 37 weeks who have no other health problems generally do fine. They may need a short stay in the neonatal nursery and may have a few short-term health issues, but in the long run, they usually do as well as full-term babies.
Weight gain:  28 lbs

Maternity clothes: mostly all maternity clothes besides some shirts/dresses

Gender: Girl!

Movement: Yes, love feeling her move - and quite funny watching my stomach move like crazy!

Sleep: Not sleeping that great..but manageable! 
Symptoms: Back pain, Swollen feet - I dont think my belly button will pop out, I guess I just assumed it happened to everyone until I noticed that mine is still way in! 

Cravings: Cold water. I have always usually preferred room temperature water but lately I prefer super cold water, and as always - Sweets!!   

Best Moment this week: Going through all of the lovely baby gifts that we received this past weekend and washing her tiny clothes :)

What I am looking forward to:  Enjoying the time with my husband before our little girl makes her big arrival!
