Currently...34 weeks!

...did you hear that?! That would be the sound of me cheering and (kind of) jumping up and down! Six more weeks people, SIX!! Can you believe it? I sure can't! This pregnancy has gone by 10x faster than the first one. Probably because I am a lot more busy with a 3yo, school and work. But I'm almost there...we are almost at the finish line of meeting our little baby, boy or girl? Be sure to vote over on the right side--->


Logan is currently...

Entertaining...his need for a bottle-again. This all happened when we started to bring out all the baby things. At first I just thought, what the heck. And now? Now he requests his milk to be in a baby bottle. For now, I am not going to worry about it. He is just exploring and learning and I don't want to interfere with his ways of dealing with our impending transition. He is such a snuggle bug in the evenings after we get home from work and school. I think he is just as exhausted as I am and so we just lay around together. He loves to put his head on my belly and tell me what the baby is telling him. It's the sweetest thing in the world!

Building...responsibility. We have started to crack down on him cleaning up after himself, especially at night before he goes to bed. So far has been pretty good about it.

Smiling...all the time! But mostly when he plays with Butte. The two of them has an incredible relationship and he just cracks up with her.

I am currently...

Entertaining...the idea of a c-section. Since I know baby is breech, I have to prepare myself emotionally for something that I never wanted. I have been reading about all the details and researching how to write a birth plan specifically for a planned c-section. Our hospital will not deliver breech unless, of course, there is no stopping it.

Holding...Logan as much as possible. Cannot believe his only child status will change in just a few weeks!

Building...up the stamina to pain the nursery! We started it last weekend and decided we didn't like one of the colors. We still have time! my little baby hiccups (did you gather that there is nothing in my life more present than this baby?!). We actually were able to see the hiccups on the US we had last Friday. It was awesome. this terribly cold weather! We had sunshine and 70*s just a few days ago!!

34 weeks:

How big is baby: 4 pounds, 18" long

Weight gain/loss: Oy vie....40.

Stretch marks: Just a few from last time on my upper legs/hips.

Sleep: Very uncomfortable.

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: No to spicy/acidic foods...makes the heartburn insane. Craving bacon/avocado burgers.

Labor signs: contractions every so often, 1cm dilated, baby is BREECH. 

Movement: Less felt now that baby is breech. I feel lots of head movement under my right ribs.

What I'm loving: The belly. No seriously. I love being pregnant and one thing I love most is the belly. I am so proud of it and I think everyone else should be proud of their baby belly's too! Celebrate it! It might be a long time before I have a baby belly again.

Symptoms: New this week: bruising in my ribs, along with Heartburn, contractions, achy back, hips and legs, pelvic pain.

What I'm looking forward to: HOPEFULLY getting this baby to flip. I have a lot of different ideas on how that is going to happen.

Best moment of the week: Swim class! It feels so good to get into the water!


  1. OMG I love that your son tells you what the baby is thinking! Too sweet!

  2. Ooh, I hope baby flips! Breech is just a complication no one should have to deal with. You still have time, fingers crossed!


Leave some Lovin!
