34 Weeks!

Dress: GAP | Cardigan: Express

Oh, that's just me and the babe in Times Square.  No big deal.

Well, I'm still exhausted from my trip to BlogHer.  I got home super early yesterday morning {I loved that it was so close to home... just a 90 minute train ride!} and then headed straight from the train station to a Baptism and luncheon for a good friend's baby girl {Hi Hannah Girl... you were totally worth it!}  

But I actually think I hit the point of exhaustion when you feel hung over {ahem... without the benefits of drinking.}  So yeah... I'm tired.  And, of course, I walk right into a crazy packed work calendar today.  Woo hoo!

:::4 days til vacation. 4 days til vacation.:::

Oh, and 3 days until my birthday.  Ahem.

Not too much to update as far as the babe is concerned.  He/she is moving around like crazy.  I didn't have an OB appt last week, so nothing to update there.  My BPP on Wednesday morning went well though and the babe actually passed in about 2.5 minutes.  I think I was in MFM for 10 minutes total.  Awesome.

I did, however, have terrible, awful Braxton Hicks contractions basically the entire conference.  And that's probably because I walked over 60 blocks in the 5 days I was there.  At least.  We walked everywhere.  My feet hurt so bad.  But I tried my best to be a trooper and I'm so glad I did because I got to experience so much and meet so many wonderful people.  I even made it until after midnight dancing away at Sparklecorn and stayed up until almost 2am with my roomies on Saturday night, talking and laughing until we almost peed our pants.  It was so fun. {But it wasn't fun when I had to wake up at 5am Sunday morning to catch a train.... let me tell ya. Ahem.}

I have my next BPP and OB appt on Friday and I think I will have my first internal since I will be just shy of 35 weeks at that point.  I will also be missing all of my weekly appts next week because I'll be on vacation, so I'm anxious to get checked out and see if I'm dilated at all yet.  

Of course, I fully expect to be at least 4cm at this point.  Who knows, maybe I'll even break my own record of 6cm!  I kid.  I do not want to walk around 6cm dilated for weeks at a time again... I felt like a ticking time bomb at that point with Brynn.  

A nice 1 or 2 cm would be just fine, thankyouverymuch.

Pregnancy: 34 weeks

Weight Gain: 22 pounds

Weeks until September 10th Induction:  5 weeks from today!

Sleep: My hips hurt now.  Bad.  And if you can't sleep on your sides, your back or your belly... ummm, how are you suppose to sleep??  You're not.  Exactly.

Gender: We're team green, so we'll find out in September!

Names: Reid Joseph or Emerson Mae {see the name post here!}

Feeling: Really tired and overwheled at the moment, but there's only a few more days until we leave for vacation so I can make it!

Health:  I had really bad swelling last night in my fingers, ankles and feet, but I'm sure it has a lot to do with the craziness that ensued over the past 5 days.  It feels a little better today, but my rings and flip flops are really tight.  Hopefully my BP is still okay.  We'll see on Friday.

Movement: Feeling him/her constantly.  I love it!

Belly: Measuring just about 3 weeks ahead right now, have the start of a very light linea negra, and my belly button has been out for awhile.  Here's my standard belly shot for this week {and please excuse my exhaustion...}:
For comparison, here's my 34 week belly shot with Brynn!

Next Appointment: Biophysical Profile & OB Appointment: this Friday, August 10th at 34w5d.

You are such a trooper for walking around NYC!! I had an issue walking from Spruce St. to Market St. for my weekly OB appts lol. And I agree I think you've dropped too! Do you feel like you dropped?

Reading your post made me realize I should start preparing for our kiddo since I am due two weeks after you... I am heading to NYC in two weeks for a girls weekend. I hope I look as good as you do then!

Hi there! I have been following your blog for awhile and I am 1 week behind you...33 weeks. I have a question..? I just had an ultrasound today and they measured my baby boy and he is 6lbs 5 oz already apparently measuring at 37 weeks...(yes my dates are correct b/c we did infertility treatments :))I know you have big babies, have they measured your baby when they have done ur ultrasounds and if so how big is he/she measuring? Also my amniotic fluid a little low i'm worried but doctor is not worried yet :(
