33/34 Weeks

How Far Along: 34 Weeks.  

Size of baby: Pineapple (20 in; 5lbs)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Still just 12 as far as I know.  I'm convinced at least 3 of those are sitting in my ankles.  :)

Maternity Clothes: Do they make maternity socks??  I'd be allll over those if I could find them.  To quote Jacob, "I think your feet are too large for your socks now..."

Gender: GIRL!  Avery Grace has already stolen our hearts!

Movement: Still all the time.  She's gotten quite forceful in movements too.  I guess she's running out of room.   

Sleep: Sporadic.  Some nights are better than others.  

What I miss: Having energy.  Being able to walk more than 50 yards without seriously contemplating taking a sit down rest break.  

Cravings: Weird things these days...

Symptoms: Fatigue, itchiness (weird...), low energy.  You know, typical for being 8.5 months pregnant.  

Best Moment/Most Interesting Moment this week: Going for our 34 week doctor's appointment.  We go back at 36 weeks for an ultrasound to measure weight and position.  Little miss Avery Grace sure does love to sit up high and breech.  Although- I've had 3 nurses at work tell me that I've "dropped".  I've noticed more pressure in my lower abdomen and movement has definitely been more frequent there.

What I'm Looking Forward To: Ultrasound next week!

32 Weeks

How Far Along: 32 Weeks.  

Size of baby: Honeydew mellon (19 in; 4.5lbs)

Total Weight Gain/LossWe've charted into new gain of +12 lbs.

Maternity Clothes: I found a couple of maxi skirts in my closet this week and they are fantastic- and a regular size!  It's a win-win situation. 

Gender: GIRL!  Avery Grace has already stolen our hearts!

Movement: All.the.time.  I've grown to enjoy the multiple rounds of hiccups she's been having recently.  It lets me know where she is.  This morning they were down low and to the right, now they are up high and to the left.  Apparently she's still got room to swim around in there.   

Sleep: Sporadic.  Some nights are better than others.  

What I miss: Having energy- still.  Daylight savings time kicked my rear end this morning despite having gone to bed an hour early to get ahead of the game.  

Cravings: Nothing earth shattering.  I've gotten into this weird stage where I don't crave anything and have nearly no appetite at all.  I know I need to eat, so I do, but nothing makes me go out to CVS in the middle of night to get because I have to have it right then.  I'm thinking that this little experience is for the better.

Symptoms: Fatigue, fatigue, and fatigue.  Oh- and then there's the heartburn that literally makes it hard to breathe.  I read where Jessica Simpson told Ellen that her preferred snack of choice is Tums.  I whole-heartedly agree.  The berry flavors are my current bedside table staple.

Best Moment/Most Interesting Moment this week: Going to "Baby Care Basics" class and watching Jacob change a diaper on what could only be described as a doll the size of a 5 year old.

What I'm Looking Forward To: My work baby shower this coming weekend!

Weekly Instagram Randoms:

This is my new friend Justin.  His last name happens to be Osmond.  As in.....Donny and Marie's little brother.  :)

Weird pregnancy eating habits at their best.

30/31 Week

How Far Along: 30/31 Weeks.  No pictures of balancing items on the belly's been a hectic week.  They're coming...just you wait.  :) 

Size of baby: Head of lettuce (19 in; 3.9lbs)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Unknown....or more like I'm choosing not to know.  I'll be forced to know on Wednesday at my 32 week appointment.

Maternity Clothes: Maternity scrubs are the bomb.  Seriously. 

Gender: GIRL!  Avery Grace has already stolen our hearts!

Movement: We've gone from sporadic hiccups to 4 rounds of it in the past 24 hours.   

Sleep: Sporadic.  Some nights are better than others.  

What I miss: Having energy. 

Cravings: Sweet tea- big time- still.

Symptoms: Fatigue, appetite like a sumo wrestler, and leg cramps.  New this week is the frequent urge to go to the bathroom thanks to Avery's new "head-down" position.

Best Moment/Most Interesting Moment this week: "Graduating" from childbirth class.  I think we learned a lot.  Jacob sure can ramble off statistics.  Ask him...dare you.

What I'm Looking Forward To: 32 week appointment on Wednesday!  One final girls trip with Staci this week to go to our state speech convention in Dallas.

For your enjoyment.  This is how we closed out our child birth class.
