Week 34 Pregnancy Journal

How far along?  34 weeks, due July 3rd!

Size of Baby: Cantaloupe - 18" long and 4 3/4 pounds.  Whoa. 

Gender: I have no idea!  Everyone keeps saying boy because I haven't gotten wide but some days I feel like this child is a red headed girl based on how I feel! ;)

Weight Gain: Basically I weigh less now than when I got pregnant.  I won't complain.  The baby is taking all I've got!  The doc isn't worried so I'm not worried!  

Maternity Clothes:  Maternity shorts and white jeans.  Otherwise, regular clothes.

Nursery:  Kevin hung the painting this week.  We set up the monitor as well.  Here are some pictures.  We still have to find one more thing to hang above the chest of drawers, get an ottoman and Dad will be bringing us a bookcase that he is making for the baby (this won't be until July when they come down for the birth)!  I just think it's super cool that he is making it for us!

This ginormous golden retriever stuffed animal cracks me up.  I had to have it.  Obviously it'll be put somewhere else in the room when the baby arrives but it's so cute in the crib for now!   Mills thinks it's his new best friend haha!

We plan to add coral accents to the nursery if it's a girl or kelly green accents if it's a boy.  That will give the room a lil zip to it!

Movement: All the time!

Symptoms:  Ohhh the usual.  Ribs.  And gestational diabetes is basically ruling my life.  I never ate so often in my life before now!  Hey, whatever it takes!

Sleep: Well I quit taking benadryl this past week but then I haven't been sleeping.  I've been worried about work and my fasting number for my blood sugar.  I think tonight I'll try benadryl again.  Doc says I can take it with no worries so I will.  

Cravings:  I have started a list of foods that I will eat in the week after this baby is born!  

What I Miss:  Nothing really.  I kinda feel like I may be in the home stretch!

Best Moment This Week:  Having some time to get back to myself this past weekend and get a routine back together.  And Kevin and I hung in the nursery getting a few things done the other night - that was nice.  

Looking Forward to:  My doctor's appointment tomorrow!  I like the reassurance that all is well.


  1. That dog is hysterical. Did you see the story about the person who got pulled over for having a tiger on top of their car? It was a big studded animal like that. ha.

  2. The nursery is coming together so wonderfully! I love the statement drapes. I have a lonnnnng way to go in that department!!

  3. The nursery is looking so good!! I love the giant stuffed puppy. :) Does Mills bark at it??

  4. Oh my goodness! You're gettting sooooo close! I'm obsessed with nursery. You Love it so much. Now you just need your sweet little baby to complete it!

  5. Love the navy! Fun that you and Kevin hang out in the nursery, Andy and I do that too. My mom just laughs at us and says "y'all will have plenty of time in the room once the baby comes".
