Belly bump update #34

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I set you apart...
Jeremiah 1:5

How far along are you?
Finished 34 weeks
Best Moment this week?
Another free weekend: saturday at the fair, Sunday at the football stadium
Prayer requests?
Trust in God's providence
Peace
Less worrying and anxiety
What scripture is speaking to you this week?
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
John 14:27
Baby's growth?
baby D3 weighs about 4 3/4 pounds (about the size of a cantaloupe) and is almost 18 inches long. She's gonna run out of room to do her somersaults. I hope she's head down.

Symptoms?
Constipation, reflux
I'm getting bigger now that turning while in bed is hard. I feel like I'm a turtle who cannot get up. Help, help.
Medical Stuff?
My belly measured smaller than expected last week so an ultrasound is scheduled next week.
Weight gain (or loss)?
I have been steady until this last weekend. Must be the grease and salty foods at the fair! +34 lbs total
Exercise?
Terrible terrible me.
I just walked a lot at the fair, walked to and from the stadium, took a lot of stairs, etc etc.
Cravings? Food Aversions?
Still no to cooking meat
Enjoying my carbs, bagels and toast. Fruit: mango, cherries, grapes
What Made Me Cry This Week?
Receiving bad news
Sleep?
Tossing and turning but overall better compared to my second pregnancy. With my second pregnancy, I slept sitting up from 6 months gestation to Isabel's birth.
Maternity Clothes?
Yup
And a nonmaternity dress or top here and there
Gender?
It's a surprise
Movement?
The kids can now see my belly movements, belly distorted by a leg stretching. Daniel loves it.
What I miss....
Wine and margarita {especially last week}
Nigiri
About the rest of the family...
Daniel's big start of the school year is this week. He's a big boy!
It's meet the teacher night tomorrow!


Linking up: babies and beyond at proverbs and pacifiers and beauty in the mess.

  1. Love the babybump updates! I remember how difficult getting a good nights rest became towards the last few months. Have you tried the back'nbody pillow? It was a total lifesaver for me!! SO comfortable and it cured my back pains too!! It is kind of chunky and can take up half of the bed though :)

    You are looking great! Will be praying for a smooth remainder of your pregnancy... anxiety free and happy!

  2. Wow, 34 weeks already! I used a candy cane shaped body pillow during my pregnancy and it helped a little. I was so big towards the end I literally had to roll off the bed and then climb up the side of the bed back into a standing position. :P Hope you're having a great week!
