Pregnancy Update: 34 Weeks!

Monday, March 3, 2014

To be honest, this was a low week for me. It's frustrating to feel down because for me, down snowballs further down most of the time. It becomes a lot more difficult to choose happiness! I think part of what has contributed to my blues is that its been hard to deal with my husband's work schedule, coupled with the fact that we've been in hotels for the past few weeks. This week, I'm finally back home and can focus on getting back into my routine and making myself feel happy again!

Thankfully, almost everything is ready for our little boy to arrive. I have a few books I want to read, including (finally!) some fiction that's just for fun! With 6 weeks to go, I want to focus on mentally relaxing and enjoying these last few moments that are all about me. I've spent so much time preparing for baby that I feel like I need to stop and smell the roses a little! Appreciate this time - right now. So we'll see how that goes, but it's my goal this week!

Week: 34 weeks along - 6 weeks to go!! (Maybe!)

Gender: Boy!!

Total Weight Gain:
About 21 lbs total!

Exercise: I can't say enough how much yoga has helped me stay strong throughout my pregnancy! I've also been trying to add in other strength exercises like squats to my routine.

Nutrition: Lots of spinach smoothies, tomatoes, bananas, and limited amounts of sweets. Trying to stay healthy while on the road!

Food cravings/aversions:
Not much this week. I don't like food as much when I'm in a funk.

Signs of Stretch Marks: Still no changes and I can't believe it! Still using Burt's Bees Belly Butter!

Maternity Clothes: No new ones since 32 weeks

Sleep: Difficult in the hotel, but sooo much better now that we're home.

Feeling: Physically, I'm feeling good. My lower back has been hurting a little, especially the days after I skip yoga. My hip & rib pain isn't as bad this week. My feet also begin to swell quite easily now, but I'm blessed to receive lots of foot rubs! 

Baby Movement: All the time! It's getting to the point where I absolutely know I'm going to miss this feeling!

Belly Button In or Out? In

Wedding Rings On or Off? On

What I miss most this week: My sunny disposition. I want my happy back!

Best moment this week: Laying on the couch watching tv with my husband. It's the little things. :)

Looking forward to: Settling in back home!

What do you want to do for yourself before baby arrives? Are you making yourself a priority? So soon, life will be totally different!
