 Top: Old Navy Maternity

Elephant Bracelet: Asia
34 weeks, 3 days.
Top: Burt's Shirts (custom obviously- we all wore these to pick up my sister, Kelsi from the airport since she just got off her mission yesterday!!!)
Tank Top: Motherhood Maternity
Shorts: Gap Maternity
Bracelets: Asia & Banana Republic

How Far Along: 34 weeks, 4 days. 3rd trimester! As of today there are 38 days until the due date!
Size of the Baby: Large cantaloupe, 5.5 lbs, 19-22 inches long!
Maternity Clothes: ...Rock. #letsbereal
Stretch marks: Just a few on each side of my hip! Absolutely nada on my belly. Guess my belly is very stretchable. Knock on wood...
Weight gain/loss: I gained 1 lb. within the last 2 weeks so I'm at 27 lbs total now.
Sleep: Same old. I love noise when I sleep. A fan, bathroom fan, white noise from a machine...it just helps. So we've been using a fan for a few weeks and it is awesome! And good because our A/C just isn't cutting it...and Kevin is freezing in the house haha.
Best Moment of the Week: All I can say is I know my son because I went in to my 34 week appointment and the girl checking me in - before the obgyn - asked about where he might be so she could look for his heartbeat. I pointed right to the spot, next to my belly button, and his heartbeat was RIGHT there. I swear he has not even ventured into the left side of my uterus. He is all about choosing the right haha ;)
Movement: Great! He is loving getting under the ribs on my right side these days so that is just great haha.
Symptoms: Honestly the only thing really bugging me is my upper back! I can take the leg cramps, sciatica, heartburn here and there no problem!
Food Cravings: Well Kevin ate at Wendys when he was on a business trip this week and told me about it and I can't remember the last time I ate there. A junior bacon cheeseburger with fries and a frosty sound amazing! Not the healthiest but sounds so good hahaha. Dipping french fries in your frosty is soooo good. Have you tried it? Kevin thinks it is nasty.
Gender: BOY!
Belly Button in or out: Still in...wondering if it will pop in a few weeks?
Anything making you queasy or sick: Just being gaggy in the morning haha.
Labor Signs: Nope... so I asked my doctor if it was okay I hadn't had any braxton hicks yet (since I know other people at my point have had some) and good to know, braxton hicks don't really correlate with early delivery...if that makes sense. Like, if you have them, great, but if they aren't regular, they don't mean anything really... maybe you are thinking I am crazy and if you are thinking that then I did a horrible job explaining. I guess I was just wondering if that meant my baby would be due at 42 weeks but nope! It would be nice to know when he will come though...lol.
Wedding ring on or off: Off and wearing random rings! Although I tried on my wedding ring and band the other day and it still totally fits like no problem... I guess I am paranoid hahaha...
What I miss: Being able to breathe easier. Our little man is getting under my ribs now!
What I am looking forward to: Seeing him for the first time!
Nursery: In progress! I have one more week of work and then after that I will be 8 months pregnant and will hopefully be able to have more time to shop around, finish up the nursery, and get everything else I need.
Emotions: Good!
Stupid things I have done: Nothing I can think of.

I went to our 34 week appointment on Wednesday and everything is going great so far! Babies heartbeat was 140 beats/minute. My doc wanted to check my iron again since earlier I was anemic. I was even borderline anemic when I was taking a prenatal WITH iron + an iron supplement so as long as it hasn't dropped we should be good! I will see her one more time at my 36 week appointment and then come back weekly until Baby R is born! It is getting real over here!



  1. dipping french fries in your frosty is AMAZING.

    i know this wasn't the focus of your post...but it's true.

  2. I am also obsessed with fries in the frosty... and my husband also thinks it's nasty. Their losses! I'm going to shoot you an e-mail, too, so keep an eye out for that :).

  3. Cute bump!! Hope you have a blast at your baby shower!

  4. I love reading your weekly updates about your little babe! We are due around the same time and were both having little boys! My little man loves the right side of my belly too, and he sure does love being up in my ribs which I am not a fan of but ive been doing some little stretches and I get him out. Haha! And when my husband and I were first dating I'd order a milkshake/frosty and dip my fries in it and my husband would look at me like I was crazy! The I looked at him like HE was crazy! I mean hello ... Who didn't do that?! Lol!

  5. You are cute...you're pulling off the hot pregnant mom look pretty well! I didn't have braxton's with two of mine and they came early...who knows I guess. With the other two, I had lots and they came on time-ish??? I want to see your baby room when it's finished :) Good seeing you today! And Kelsi!

  6. how exciting for you! you will be so in love when your little babe is born!
