Bumpdate- 34 Weeks

It’s time for another Bumpdate you guys.  This could easily be one of the last ones because we’ve only got about 1.5 months left.  I’ll try my best to keep you updated… I promise!

Because sometimes people need a good laugh and it’s healthy to make fun of yourself, here’s a nice picture for ya:

big fish and big momma

J.C. made me go fishing one afternoon at our pond and we had a real good time.  When I say he made me, what I mean is that I feel like I can’t do anything that isn’t a necessity or fun because I feel guilty for not getting things crossed off my list.  I’m so glad he drug me out there.  I needed to get away from that list for a little while anyways.  And this humongous fish?  Yeah, I was fishing with a cane pole and a worm on a bream (little fish) hook and this bad boy (it’s a trash fish called a grinnel) about pulled me and little man in the water.  J.C. said you have never heard so much squealing in your life.  Oh and isn’t my outfit just lovely?  🙂

How far along:  34 weeks or 8.5 months!!!  My how time flies…

Due date:  July 17th

Baby size:  He’s “supposed” to be around 19 to 20 inches long and weigh somewhere between 4 and 5 pounds.  At 28 weeks he was measuring a little large; however, at my 32 week appointment my doctor said he seemed to be on track and not getting too big too fast like we might have thought.

Total weight gain:  25 pounds and counting

Symptoms:  So the worst one is the never ending aching in my pelvic region.  At 30 weeks I started feeling awful.  And please don’t take that as complaining because I couldn’t be more delighted to have the opportunity to be pregnant!  I just can’t help how I feel.  I really wish I felt like a million bucks but it’s unfortunately not my reality.  Doc said the baby is completely head down.  I’m a small person and all of my muscles have sort of relaxed.  So take all of that plus the extra 25 pounds I’m lugging around and yeah… I don’t feel so hot.  It’s hard to walk, lift my legs to put on clothes, get out of bed, etc.!  But I keep reminding myself that all of this is leading to a beautiful baby boy.  So, I just smile and push forward the best I can 🙂

Food cravings/aversions:  I’ve been getting sick some lately.  Not sure if that has anything to do with pregnancy but a lot of foods have not agreed with me.  I have a small craving for sushi often but that happens to be an issue because I can’t get it in town.  Whomp whomp!  And the heartburn seems to still be lingering.  Can’t pinpoint anything in particular at this point.  It’s not unbearable so that’s nice!

Gender prediction:  Beautiful bouncing baby boy!!!

Looking forward to:  Finishing up his nursery (we’re getting close to being able to move the furniture in), our baby shower this weekend, our maternity pictures next weekend, and meeting our son.  Wow… that is so weird to say type… “our son.”  I just cannot imagine how much we are going to love him.  I’ve been told by so many that you just won’t know that feeling until he gets here but when he does it is the best feeling in the world.  ♥

We’ve got 6 weeks left and I’m sure it will take them forever to pass and fly by, all at the same time.  Until next time…
