Bumpdate- 34 Weeks

I hate this picture, a lot! 
I thought taking a picture near the big tree might make me look not so huge but I was wrong. 
I can barely see the darn tree! 
How Far along: 34 weeks and 4 days.

Baby is the size of: Baby G is the size of a cantaloupe!

Total Weight Gain: Ugh, I'm up 32 but my doctor says I'm right on target for my body type.

Sleep:  I don't know what sleep is any longer. I just hope it preps me (in some way) for the arrival of baby. The fatigue is hitting me hard. I can barely keep my eyes open most days.

Best moment of the week:

* We set up the tree and all of our holiday decorations.

Worst Moment of the Week:
* Complete exhaustion.
* Swelling!

Miss Anything:
* Feeling good in my own skin. I am busting out of all of my shoes and clothes. I could live in yoga pants and go barefoot till January if it were acceptable.

Food Cravings:
* I've been craving some red meat. Thanks anemia

Anything make you queasy:
* Due to being anemic I get dizzy really easy and that makes me queasy most days.

Have you started to show? Oh yes!

Gender: Surprise baby!!!

Symptoms: Swelling, trouble sleeping, soreness in my hips and nether region when I sleep.

Workouts: Not a thing.

Mood: I'm still really hormonal. I feel like crying all the time, for good reasons and bad reasons. My emotions are cray-cray

Looking forward to:

* Meeting baby! We are getting so close!
* The holiday season!

Maternity Clothes: Living in leggings and its not a pretty sight!

Stretchmarks: Nothing yet. Thank goodness!

Rings on or off? Mostly off. :(

Bellybutton in or out? Still holding strong as an in but it's nearly ready to pop. It freaks me out a bit too. 

This week I:
* Ate like a champion and it was awesome!

* Decorated our house for Christmas
* Did lots of online shopping for Christmas gifts.

Baby Update:

* Baby is doing great. 
* Baby seems to love the time of day when I can put my feet up. Baby always moves so much more when my feet are up. 
* Lots of shaking going on in there. Plus big, powerful kicks that stop me in my tracks most days.

Oh I miss sleep already and the baby isn't even here yet! I was up from 2:30-5:30 after not falling asleep until 12. I took a benedryl and tried to sleep until 9 am... but I feel like a zombie today. Hoping you can get some good nights in before baby comes! You still look great girl!

Ugh towards the end my swelling was the worst too. Love your cute little bump and I love the tree picture (you don't look awful at all! We are always our worst critics!) Can't wait until baby arrives!
