34 Week Baby Update

Due Date? October 2nd--But at my appointment yesterday we decided to stick with the 38 week induction due to my chronic hypertension...so it looks like this baby's birthday will be September 18th (unless they decide to come before that on their own)! It's not on the books yet but that means less that one month to go. Exactly 4 weeks from today we will meet this peanut!

How far along? 34 weeks today

How big is baby? According to my ultrasound, baby is estimated at 4 pounds 15 ounces which is in the 56th percentile.

Weight gain? +29--pretty excited to still be under that 30 mark!

Maternity clothes? Yep

Stretchmarks? not yet

Sleep? I am currently using 3 pillows to help get comfortable and that seems to be helping. I also need to stop drinking so much water before bed because I have to get up to pee like 20 million times.

Best moment this week? Saw the peanut on ultrasound again! Although the tech said the baby was very low and she had a hard time getting a pic of it face. :oP

Not sure if you can see the chubby cheeks and little lips...

Movement? Yep. I've got feet kicking me in the ribs and a head resting on my bladder. Fun stuff!

Food cravings? Nothing really. I can't eat too much at a time these days. Although I did tell nick that Chinese sounds pretty good! :oP

Gender? Team Green--only 4 more weeks to wait! Ahhhhhhhh! Getting so anxious!

Labor signs? Ultrasound tech said my cervix was measuring over 3cm so no dilation yet.

Belly button in or out? in but starting to get more flat

What I miss? Laying and sleeping on my stomach, being able to breath, and not waddling. Oh and I long to wear normal clothes again.

What I am looking forward to? Fall!!! I and so ready for cooler weather and I am excited that I get to spend most of it without a big belly. I am hoping I can get a few new tops for the Fall and actually feel normal again! I am also looking forward to the fact that this baby will have a birthday when the weather is nice and we can get outside for walks and in the future...maybe have birthday parties outside!

Milestones? 34 weeks! And while I joked with my doc yesterday that the baby could come anytime and I would be fine with that, I know they need to bake a few more weeks. 38 weeks looks like the end game for me unless that decide to come before that on their own. With this being my third...i'm kind of nervous that that might be the case. :o/ but we're just going to keep on chugging! We are almost there!

Next doctor's appointment? September 3rd--which will put me just shy of 36 weeks.

sorry I never posted a 32 week bump pic. Here is a 34 week pic from yesterday...on our way to our ultrasound.


  1. Aww! How cute are you?! Can't believe in 4 weeks or less the baby will be here! Are you ready?

  2. You look great!! I can't believe that he/she will possibly be here in 4 weeks! I still think you are having a girl =)


I'd love to hear from you!! :o)
