Merfbaby is 34 weeks!
He’s the size of a cantaloupe.
How I’m Feeling: Another busy week so I’m a week late on this post also. I still feel really good, getting more tired but I think that’s from work as much as pregnancy. Merfbaby is low and pushing lower into my right hip which is always a strange feeling.
Belly/Weight: Sometimes I don’t notice how big my belly is until I catch a glimpse of it in the corner of my eye. Yesterday I had a few people comment that I sure didn’t look 8.5 months along! But I’m starting to feel it ;)
Life Changes: Most of my clothes are still fitting, well…the ones that I’ve been using for “maternity” clothes. I have two soft stretch skirts that I love and I will live in those until Merfbaby arrives.
Movement: Low and slow. His movements are firmer but lower, he’s head down so he’s pushing himself down and trying to get comfy.
Sleep: Sleeping really well, just wish I could have a lot more of it! Getting out of bed it hard, but going to bed it always nice :) I’m thankful I’ve been sleeping really well through the whole pregnancy.
Cravings: Berries. It’s been my big craving for the whole pregnancy, fruit and citrus juice. I love my OJ and strawberries.
Exercise: Lots of time on my feet again this week. I’ve been much more active around the office since moving into our new space. I never spend very long sitting down before I have to run to grab something.
Favorite Pregnancy Moment this week: Another baby shower with my close friends from college and beyond. It was so great to see everyone and spend some time catching up. It’s funny, around this time last year I was having my bridal showers…and I remember them asking me about having kids and how soon. I said “if I was pregnant this time next year I would be ok with it.” Wow. I didn’t realize that was really happening until one of the girls pointed it out. Ha!
On My Mind: Wondering when he’s going to arrive and what he’s going to look like. I still feel like he’s going to come late, like August but who knows what’ll happen. It’s hard to imagine how it’s all going to happen, but exciting to think about. I started packing our hospital bag – eek. It’s starting to feel so much more real!
