34 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights
How Far Along: 34 weeks (only 6-ish to go!)
Size of baby: Almost 18 inches long and five pounds (the size of a cantaloupe)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 30 lbs. I know. My doc says it's not a huge deal as long as I've gained fewer pounds than how many weeks along I am, but since I wanted to max out at 35, that means I have seriously got to lay off the sugar.
Maternity Clothes: Yes. And some of them are getting a little snug, oh my goodness. I really don't remember feeling this big with the first two. 
Gender: We're having a GIRL! Harper Kate :)
Movement: Baby girl moves a LOT. At least now she's balancing out between my left and right sides.
Sleep: I sleep okay (as in I can go all night without getting up to go to the bathroom), but every morning I wake up with a very sore back pain.
What I miss: Not needing to pee every thirty minutes. Really, it's getting out of hand.
Cravings: Carbs. Sugar. Dairy. I guess I shouldn't be surprised about the weight gain, haha. 
Symptoms: A big ol' belly. Occasional shooting pains in my legs (I'm working on improving circulation). Lower back pain (although I'll take some back pain over the horrible pelvic pain I experienced with my first two pregnancies).
Best Moment this week: Honestly, it's been a hard week. I'm trying to get so much done before August, but we're also trying to enjoy the summer with our family. I did get all of Avery's outgrown clothes organized, and all of the newborn and 0-3 month clothes are washed, folded, and hung. Progress at least?

I gained 45lbs if that makes you feek better :-) And, Dr D sounds like he was a lot nicer to you about weight than he was me. Haha!
