34 weeks

This weeks' weight gain/loss: +2lbs

Total weight gain/loss: +3lbs

Size of Baby: Honeydew!!! Only one more fruit left to go! 

Biggest challenges: Sleeping :o( I am tossing and turning alllllllllllll night long. Since the left or right side are my only two options at this point, it's becoming increasingly difficult to get and stay comfortable. I'll start out on one side and when that side falls asleep (within half an hour, tops), then it's time to roll over... this process goes on until my alarm goes off in the morning *sigh*

Cravings: Nausea, gagging, heartburn and indigestion are all back full force and so food has once again lost it's appeal. I'm still super thirsty all of the time, especially at night and so water is my go-to consumption right now.

Gender: it's a BOY!!! Owen Richard W*****

Movement: Still really active, except for today :o( I did some kick counts this morning, because he's making me nervous, which were fine. But I definitely prefer the days when he's more active, even if he keeps me up at night.

Sleep: I think I pretty much covered my complaints for this topic up above... I miss sleep :o(

What I Miss: Being able to see my ankles lol the swelling is awful! My doctor has run every single precautionary test and they've all come back normal, so at this point it's just being deemed as normal pregnancy swelling.

Emotions: I've been very very tired and trying my hardest not to be irritable because of it. So far I like to think that I'm doing a pretty good job, hopefully that continues through these last few weeks.

Best moment this week: We went camping with friends this weekend, which was a lot of fun - it was nice to just get away and not have any commitments. Owen was super active all weekend, so I think he enjoyed himself.

Any baby related purchases: Yesterday we returned some more items from our first shower and were able to purchase our video/sound/movement monitor and extra car seat base with the store credits!

Milestones: 3 more weeks until we're full term! Whoa!

Oh sleep...I miss it too! I remember those last few weeks of feeling uncomfortable at night. No fun!
