34 weeks

How far along: 34 weeks 

Countdown to EDD: 6 weeks (ahh!!!)/42 days

Baby is the size of a: Butternut squash. He feels giant.

Physical symptoms: Super uncomfortable. Either baby is getting so big that he's taking up my whole torso or he's wedged up towards my chest. Sitting down is painful.   

Mood: Mostly good, but I'm getting easily frustrated when I can't do things I normally do.   

Total Weight Gain/Loss:  About +20 lbs. Though according to the stranger that did a full inspection of my body the other day, it looks like I only gained 10. Thanks?

Maternity clothes: Tops yes, but I've been living in my new non-maternity yoga pants. I have four pairs now.     

Sleep: Still pretty good so I guess that's a fair trade for being so uncomfortable during the day. I'll take it.

Best moment of the week: We picked a name! I'm not going to share it on here because I don't use our real names here. I don't want this blog to show up if someone Googles us. Because people are totally Googling us all the time.

Movement: OMFG. The alien belly was out of control last night. Seth and I were half screaming, half laughing at it. Then laughing made the baby move more. I absolutely love seeing and feeling him move because I was afraid I'd never experience this...but it does freak me out a bit.

Food cravings/aversions: Still french fries. If I could eat french fries for every meal, I would.

Sex: Boy

Labor signs: Nope. I don't even notice BH that often, but maybe I'm just getting used to them.

What I miss: Sitting and bending over without pain.

What I am looking forward to: We have another growth scan on Tuesday and it turns out Seth will be able to go after all!

Milestones: 34 weeks today! Baby could arrive at any time. If I go into labor, they're not going to stop me! Hopefully he hangs out in there for a few more weeks though.

Showing yet: Yes. I noticed that I've gained most of my non-belly weight on my lower body. I don't recognize my legs. My ass looks big(ger) too, but to be honest I wouldn't mind if that hangs around after baby is born. 


  1. Your ass looks phenomenal.
    I totally LOL'd at the random guy guessing how much weight you've gained - that is so messed up.
    Yay for Hubs being able to come to the next scan! I can't believe you're getting so close now. Crazy. Go alien baby, go! (PS: I love the name :-) )

  2. I cant believe how quickly time is flying by, 34 weeks already?! You look amazing, belly, butt and all!! I can totally relate to being frustrated when I can't do things or reach things. And the alien belly - I am so with you on that!! So glad Seth can make it to the next growth scan :)

  3. Congrats on 34 weeks! That is a huge milestone. You look terrific! I can totally relate to the leg thing. My husband told me the other night that my calves looked huge (thank you, pregnancy swelling). Yay on picking a name!

  4. YAY for 34 weeks! Can't wait to "meet" that little boy of yours! You look fantastic!
