34 Weeks

31 weeks... on my birthday
How far along: 34 weeks
Weight Gain this month, Total Weight Gain, Current Weight:  5 lbs, 26lbs, 157lbs
Approximate Size of Baby: approx. 4 3/4 lbs, 18 inches, 'average' cantaloupe
Sleep:  Hard to fall asleep.  Usually waking up to adjust, eat or pee.  Definitely feeling like the end is near.
Memorable Moments:  While waiting to help Krystal in the temple, the temple escort asked me if I was due any day now.  I told her I still had a couple months to go and she said "wow, that baby is low."  Tell me about it. *** Annabelle came up to my belly the other day and told Baby L that she loved him.  "I love my baby" is technically what she said.
Movement:  He's so large in affects EVERYTHING when he moves.
Exercise:  Not much at all... hip still hurts.  Swimming is the only thing that helps.
Food Cravings/Aversions:  Not so much into any food right now because it give me heartburn.  Chocolate and burgers still seem to be the favorite go-to food.
Not-so-Fun Symptoms:  Feeling large *** Having people tell me I look too small for how far along I am *** the heat of the summer *** bending over *** BH contractions
Labor Signs: Still occasional, but they are there.
What I Miss:  Having my body to myself.  ***  Walking without pain
What I'm looking forward to:  My friends are throwing me a baby 'sprinkle'  just a girl get-to-together with friends and chatting... then we're going to get pedicures... just what my feet need.
Anything Else:  I think I'm starting to nest because I've been making things for Baby L like CRAZY.  I've stenciled some shirts, made newborn gowns and a new diaper holder.  Extra crafting is how I nest.***Sonogram in two weeks at my next appointment.  We'll also talk about finishing up this pregnancy.... I can't believe we're near the end!
