{34 weeks}

34 weeks 3 days

Symptoms:  same as the last couple weeks as far as contractions go.  Lots of them.  I've started having horrible back aches and cramping then past week and LOTS of pelvic pressure.  All that combined with contractions coming every 4 minutes for 2 1/2 hours sent me to the hospital again this past Thursday.  Like magic as soon as we got there, the contractions slowed and eventually stopped.  The doc did check me while I was there and I'm 80% effaced and 1 cm dilated.  So at least I know that, it doesn't mean much though I could go into labor tonight or in 4 doesn't mean a whole lot.  Although it seems like everywhere I go these days, in my mind I'm planning out the fastest route to the bathroom in case my water breaks.  
Weight: 27 lbs

Movement: It's been weird but every so often as I'm walking baby boy will press just the right nerve and shooting pain runs down one of my legs.    

Sleep: Getting a little more and more uncomfortable at night so sleeping isn't the greatest.  

Cravings/aversions/eating: Wanting lots of fruit and water this week.....oh and that cheesecake Friday night hit the spot too :)

Clothes:  getting pretty sick of my wardrobe. :)  I basically just wear the same outfits over and over again!

Random: After tomorrow, I start weekly appointments.   My house sure is suffering these past few weeks.  I lined up someone to come do a deep cleaning for me Sept 21 and I'm just hoping I make it to that day before baby is born so I can have the house CLEAN before baby is born. :)  I've never had a cleaning lady, I've BEEN a cleaning lady, but never had someone besides my mom come and clean my house.  I almost feel as thought I should clean it before she comes to clean it.  Weird huh?  But I won't....I'm gonna thoroughly enjoy this one time gig.  It'd be so nice to have someone come help but man I've now found out how expensive it is!  yikes!  


  1. If i lived there I WOULD so weekly clean for you!!!

  2. Glad you enjoyed that cheesecake on Friday! And I'm jealous you crave fruit and water. I only craved pure crap! :)
