The size of a cantalope…just like mommy’s ankles!!!
How far along: 34 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: A whopping 33 lbs! That’s almost 35, which WAS my limit.
Exercise: Prenatal yoga when I am not working or right before work, which is around 6am. I can’t sleep so might as well do something active. I also take the stairs instead of the elevator.
Maternity clothes: Ok, #1… Why are my MATERNITY jeans not fitting me anymore????!!! WTF?! They are tight and uncomfortable. The stretchy maternity yoga pants are great though. Those are the ones I look forward to putting on when I get home from work. Target and Motherhood maternity clothes are more affordable.
Sleep: Nooooope! I am lucky if I go through a night without having to wake up 2-3 times to pee or to eat Tim’s Lucky Charm cereal at 3:30am. Sorry honey, Liam reeealllyy wanted those Lucky Charm’s! My healthy Total cereal does not compare to the tasty marshmallows in the Charm box. 🙂
It is also difficult to turn in bed. The body pillow has helped a bunch. Liam also likes to do cartwheels and jumping jacks around 6:30am. So I basically forgot what sleeping in was like. And I know once Liam is born, it’s not getting any better! Yay!
Best moment this week: A prenatal massage and a visit to my chiropractor. Holy crap prenatal massages feel A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! I highly recommend them. I get them twice a month and feel golden after each session. Believe me, I fell asleep on the table. That’s how good it was.
Tim’s best moment this week: “Getting through another work week and getting booked for another show after Liam’s arrival. Keeping busy people!”
Miss Anything: My normal walk for crying out loud! When they say you are waddling like a duck, that means you are waddling like a damn duck. I can’t help it.
Movement: This baby does not fit anymore! He moves everyday and punches/kicks me several times in a row. I can finally see my stomach move up and down. It’s cute and weird all at the same time.
Food cravings: I now eat 2 watermelons a week!! I LOVE cold watermelon. Lucky Charm cereal, fruit juice, Menchies yogurt, and turkey avocado wraps.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Yeah, traffic on the 405 and slow drivers. Also the extreme heat in the valley.
Have you started to show yet: Pffff! Please!
Belly Button in or out? Still in.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Tired and out of breath.
Looking forward to: Getting the nursery done! Painting is still in progress and furniture still needs to be ordered! I also can’t wait for my maternity leave. Lot’s to look forward to.
Difficulties: Sleep, swollen feet-face-& arms, breathing, walking like a human being, keeping my hands off the pastries, and getting into Tim’s lifted 4×4 truck. I’m going to need a step stool pretty soon.
