HOW FAR ALONG: 34 weeks (on Friday September 11)
ABOUT BABY: Baby is the size of a butternut squash, measuring 17.2 to 18.7 inches, and weighs approximately 4.2 pounds.
SYMPTOMS: My back is absolutely killing me. It's best in the morning and into the early afternoon, but after that, its pretty annoyingly sore. Sitting up is the worst I find, so walking around or lying down is best in the evenings. I have also been having contractions multiple times throughout the day. Nothing painful, mostly just annoying because they push up against my sore rib. Otherwise, they are very tolerable.
CRAVINGS: I had a craving for Ruffles All Dressed Chips last week, and my super amazing husband took off to the convenience store at 10pm to pick some up! Other than that, I just always want to have ice cold water.
MATERNITY CLOTHES: I FINALLY caved and got some maternity jeans. So much better. I don't even know what I was thinking not getting them sooner! I must have been crazy! These pants are so much more comfy than trying to squeeze my giant belly into my regular jeans. Shirts, I have a few maternity ones, but otherwise, its still my regular t-shirts and tanks, which seem to be doing just fine. For now anyways.
