Bumpdate: 34 Weeks

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. 

MOVEMENT: Baby is still dancing around in there all day (and night) long. 

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.

33 Weeks
Overall, I have to say, things are going nearly identical as they did with Palmer. It seems like my two pregnancies have been so similar in almost every way. So, now I'm not sure whether to expect this baby to arrive in the next 2 weeks like she did or if this will hold on til the end?!? Even the doctor on Tuesday was unsure what to expect. I have started to pack a hospital bag, because I didn't have that done last time (along with many other things I wanted to do before baby came.) I'm thinking though, we will be much more prepared this time around!
