34 Weeks




How far along: 34 weeks
Size of Baby P: 17.72 inches, 4.73 pounds (according to Pregnancy App)
Fruit/vegetable comparison: Honeydew (for weeks 33-36)
Gender: Boy
Showing: Yes
Maternity clothes: Yes
Unglamorous body changes: Swelling is starting to get worse and my belly button is about to pop out
Sleep: Not great, but I'm hanging in there!

Movement: Really hard kicks. I think Jack is out of room and uncomfortable too. 
Food cravings:  We are back to lemon cravings!  Also loving pineapple sherbet
Anything making you queasy or sick: No
Wedding rings on or off: On, but getting tighter. I'm currently only wearing my engagement ring. My "stack" of bands is a little too uncomfortable.
Mood:   Very excited, happy, but also a little testy
Best moment this week:  Two best moments...seeing Ashley at her baby shower and my baby shower at the Junior League!
Strange experiences: Seeing the "alien" move around my belly
Milestones:    Baby's intestinal and digestive systems are fully working by themselves and he is peeing into the amniotic fluid, up to a pint a day...gross!
Looking forward to:   Our last baby shower this weekend
Thoughts:   As I type this I'm 35 weeks (holy cow) and coming off an amazing weekend...I was showered with so much love by my girlfriends and I got to see Ashley for the last time before we both have our babies.  I feel so loved and supported...but also exhausted as I was on my feet ALL day doing laundry and checking more things off the maternity to-do list!  Everyone tells me that now is the time to rest before I have baby boy, yet there is still so much to do to "get ready."  If only I could take maternity leave before the baby!!! 
 
Jason and I have our last baby class tomorrow night: infant CPR.  We are also getting our infant seat and bases installed.  One more baby shower this weekend too!  We also started interviewing nannies today and Jason finished setting up my home office. 
 
Lots getting done in the Purifoy household!  But mostly just excited to meet Baby Jack.
