34 weeks {nora}

Up till now, I've just been doing updates at the same time that I had a belly shot with Emmy.'s the weekend, I am getting bored with all the usual time-waster websites so I am going to do a 34 week update, sans belly.
Her size: According to Babycenter, Nora should be 17 3/4" and a little over 4lbs 12oz.
How far along: 34 weeks as of Friday.
Total weight gain: +33lbs.  Probably +1.5-2lbs since last week.  Hoping that weight gain is either water (b/c I feel like I am swelling a bit) or Nora catching up in growth.
Sleep:  Not too bad, usually wake up around 330-5am to pee.  Also keep waking up on my back which makes my lower back ache SO bad when I have to get out of bed.
Maternity Clothes: ALL maternity and digging through Chris' drawers to find size L tshirts.  Kind of depressing when his stuff is even too small.
Food cravings: Chocolate and cold things.  This is crazy, b/c I am normally not a chocolate person.  I mean, I enjoy it just as much as the next person- but I've never considered myself to CRAVE it.
Food aversions: Water....this is a bad one to NOT be wanting.
Symptoms: Nothing abornmal. Although I have noticed my swelling starting to increase, not terrible.  I don't have the best knees and have had on and off pain in both knees....right now my right knee is swelling like I have injured it.  But I think it's just regular pregnancy swelling.  Anyway, didn't experience this with Emmy and wanted to take note.
Stretchmarks: None that I can see.  But my stomach is starting to look a little stressed out.  Remember those hyper color tshirts from way back when?  Yeah, my stomach can do the same trick when I put my hands on there.  I think it's primarily from the Procardia causing my skin to flush.
Doctor’s Appointment: I have an appointment Valentines Day!  How sweet right?  It's also a 2pm appointment which means I will weigh in at least 1-2lbs heavier than morning appointments (starting to think now of what I can eat at lunch that doesn't weigh much but is filling....YES, I am that vain.).
Movement:  Plenty of movement...especially from 9pm until whenever I fall asleep. When she moves, I feel it everywhere so I honestly don't know if she's breech, head down or transverse.  We will see on Tuesday.
Belly Button: Poking out a little.
Best moment of the week:  Some sweet friends brought us dinner last night.  Outside of work, I have no social life so it was really great to feel like a social human being.
What I’m looking forward to: The next 6 weeks flying by.  Just ready to meet Nora.
What I miss: Working out.  Not like a big, intense, P90 meets Insanity meets Bootcamp workout....Just want to hop on the elliptical for a 20 minute workout.
Preparations:  The bedding is on the crib (which doesn't matter much since I'm sure we won't be putting her in there a ton until 2-3 months).  Hoping to get the carseat in the car soon and get the car cleaned out.

  1. Question from someone who has never been pregnant? Can you not work out? I mean, I know you can some - there's a preggo lady that comes to my body pump class each week! but I'm guessing at some point you have to stop and can only do certain things? What's the scoop?



I love hearing what you have to say:
