Tuesday, November 3, 2015

34 Week Bumpdate

Weeks along: 34 weeks Thursday

Size of the baby: 18" long and 4 3/4 pounds, about the size of a cataloupe

Must haves: I still have not really been having any crazings

Sleep: I'm still sleeping ok, I probably turn from one side to the other a few times each night.

Baby Movement: We are are the point where my whole stomach moves when she moves, it's so crazy!

Gender: It's a girl!

Name: Hannah Elizabeth

Weight Gain: 18 pounds

Challenges: It's an effort to do quite a bit at this point and I haven't been to the gym in a few weeks. I feel like an old lady when I get out of bed in the morning, but five more weeks to go! I also have started to swell in my legs. I kept my compression hose from last time around and am hoping they help. I have a pretty good feeling my three recent pound of weight are currently the water I'm retaining. Also, on an important note, Hannah hasn't turned yet and this has me a bit anxious.  I have an appointment on Friday and my doctor is going to do another ultrasound to see if there's anything interfering with Hannah turning, and if not she's going to try to turn her externally.  Prayers Hannah can figure it out and get turned are greatly appreciated. I know having a c-section will be ok, but I'd really like to avoid it if possible.

 Best moment of the week: We are are the point where if Hannah were to come early, she's pretty much developed, she'd just be a peanut. I'm thankful for that, but hoping she stays until I'm due, just to make it easier for her.


  1. How exciting! I can't believe she's almost here.

  2. So close now! Praying that Hannah turns on her own and that you have an easy delivery!

  3. Looking good lady and just in the home stretch :)
