34 weeks!

Holy pregnant! Playing a little catch up here, so bare with me.
We've got names picked out (but we aren't telling you), we've got bags packed, we even have had some lovely Braxton hicks contractions. Will and I talk constantly about how we can't wait to hold our little one. Life is getting pretty exciting and we just feel so grateful.
How far along: 34 weeks

Baby Size: Your baby now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds (about the size of a cantaloupe) and is almost 18 inches long.

Baby's progress: His/Her fat layers — which will help regulate her body temperature once he/she is  born — are filling out, making the baby rounder. His/Her skin is also smoother than ever. His/Her central nervous system is maturing and the lungs are continuing to mature as well. If you've been nervous about preterm labor you'll be happy to know that babies born between 34 and 37 weeks who have no other health problems generally do fine. They may need a short stay in the neonatal nursery and may have a few short-term health issues, but in the long run, they usually do as well as full-term babies

Weight gain: Unsure at this point!

Stretch Marks: Still none!

Sleep: Fatigue has set in again, so work is hard. I've had a couple restless nights, but then I'll have nights where I sleep like a baby.

Gender: No idea! :)

Movement: O ya- kicks my ribs and bladder. The baby will stick it's foot out and we can feel that as well.

Best Moment this week: Getting the final things for our hospital bag!

Looking forward to: I just can not wait to hold my baby.
Food Cravings: Maybe cereal... just so good!

Symptoms: Using the bathroom, shortness of breath, thirsty all the time, can't put my shoes on by myself, rolling out of bed is hard, and serious nesting!   <-----still the same! All the joys of the final trimester!

Things that suck: Can't complain!
Things that don't suck: Again, being so close to meeting our baby!
