Baby Gardner- 34 weeks

How far along? 34 weeks
Total weight gain.  No gain as of a few days ago, still at 20 lbs total. But I have a feeling next week will definitely be a gaining week.
Baby Development. Baby has probably settled into the head-down position (i can't tell). Organs are now almost fully mature, except for the lungs, and the skin is pink instead of red. Fingernails reach the ends of fingers, but toenails are not yet fully grown.
Maternity Clothes? With the warm weather I am wearing my normal dresses and skirts-extra snug of course. And I am  testing the limit with my work scrubs
Stretch Marks? Fingers and toes are still crossed that this stays a NO
Sleep? Sleeping very well, I do wake up sore in the morning though-not sure why
Best Moment of the week? We got a Pediatrician!!! Also nursery wall decorations are all in, just working on personalizing them.
Symptoms? Oh, Mr Braxton Hicks, you kicked my butt this week. Also reflux returned this week. Me and mint tums-connected at the hips.
Food cravings? Fruit. Nothing else sounds very good most of the time.
Miss anything? My waistline, killer workouts, and  a yummy mojito
Movement? Still lots of movement with frequent hiccups
Gender ? Little baby boy
Belly Button in or out? Still in, but getting pretty even with the belly.
Goals for upcoming week?  make my final list of what I still need off my registry, install the baby camera, start washing cloths and blankies
Looking Forward to?  Dr. appt Monday and Maternity pictures Saturday!!!
Thoughts? It seems so surreal that we are down to less than a month. It's so hard to believe. I find myself sitting in Baby G's room, trying to imagine what it's going to be like. I still cannot believe it. I don't think it will hit me until I am laying on the OR table.  But, at the same time, I am ready. I cannot wait to be a mommy!!!


  1. Nursery looked great - cant wait to see the final product! Let me know if you need help with anything or if we should plan a dinner to talk all things baby! :)

  2. Maternity pics are so fun! Enjoy, can't wait to see some! OR table... are you having a c section?

    1. Yep, because of a previous myomectomy to remove large fibroids from my uterus, my doctor thinks its safest to do a C-section. And yes, so excited for maternity pics!!
