Third Pregnancy :: Week 34

Third Pregnancy : Week 34

What a busy couple of weeks!  Time is flying so fast…Aunt Lynn came to visit last week and we had a great time, Travis’ trip is over and he’s officially here for the rest of my pregnancy (thank goodness), my Mom is visiting so the girls are enjoying every second with Kiki and loving the fact that she’s not in a computer, both girls are sick right now, Abby has surgery on Thursday, and the list goes on…and just like that, we have 5 weeks until Caroline arrives. Exciting!

I’ve still been feeling really, really good (tired sometimes, but good) but I definitely feel like I’m getting to that point in my pregnancy where I’m ready to not be pregnant anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy to have Caroline in my belly as long as she wants to be in there (well, until May 14th…), but it’ll be nice when I can lay on my belly again and when I can start fitting in normal clothes again.

Weight gain this week (followed by total weight gain for this pregnancy thus far):

I’ve still been living in workout clothes and sweatpants…occasionally I’ll throw on a pair of jeans to really “dress up.”

Stretch marks:

Belly button:

Sleep has been pretty good. Not great, but it’s not because of my pregnancy…it’s just because Abby’s had a couple rough nights of waking up (she’s sick again, poor thing – we keep trading bugs).

Best moment of the week:
There are too many great moments to pick just one, so here are the highlights ::

  1. Aunt Lynn visiting
  2. Travis coming home
  3. Kiki arriving
  4. The weather warming up

Food cravings:
Kale & Quinoa

Food aversions:

Weight gain.
Getting easily frustrated (that’s a symptom, right?).
Growing belly.
My red spots are getting more red.  A lot more red.
General tired feeling.
Sometimes Caroline moves into strange, uncomfortable positions.

She’s still super active. No changes there.

Caroline is a GIRL!

What I’m looking forward to:
Enjoying an anniversary dinner with Travis this weekend while my Mom watches the girls. 

What I’m nervous about:
My Mom’s trip going too fast!

What I miss:
My girls being healthy.

Next appointment:
April 11th.
