34 weeks, 1 day: 41 days to go

I actually write three blogs – since I wear three hats – a mom, a crafter/entrepreneur, and an apple orchardist.  I try not to double post in these blogs but sometimes things that are going on just needs to be shared by all.  A new little person will be joining my family in just a few weeks (well, 6 or so) so at least by sharing with you all my journey you’ll understand when I’m not posting quite as frequently or take longer to get back to you at times. 


I had Jared take the photo outside as the weather has been BEUATIFUL the last few days!017-1

How Far Along: 34 weeks, 1 day!
Size of baby: 4 3/4 lbs and just under 18 inches

Total Weight Gain/Loss: +Maternity Clothes: still going to stick with about +29lbs since I don’t go to the doctor until Thursday and I refuse to stand on a scale at home

Gender: It’s a GIRL; name will be chosen when we see her! (Supposedly…we’ll see – I wouldn’t be surprised if she surprises us and is actually a boy – she’s HUGE!)

Movement: Still crazy but I don’t think I’m noticing it as much since I’ve been much more active now that I’m feeling better.

Sleep: Fine – except Jared and I are currently addicted to watching episodes of 24 on netflix so it seems that we’re staying up later and later which makes the mornings tougher.  On Saturday I somehow managed to take two naps and wow – that was amazing!

What I miss: champagne and beer

Cravings: canned pears, whipped cream, dried blueberries in my mac & cheese

Symptoms: heartburn, terrible hips, slightly swollen ankles, an enlarged stomach

Best Moment of the Week: I sort of have two…I pampered myself – I had a pedicure last Thursday and a haircut today…sometimes you just have to do things for yourself…
