At this point in a pregnancy, 34 weeks, not much changes. From what I can tell and what I've read it's mostly just the baby's weight increasing (fat layers). Right now, at 34 weeks, I'm reading that he's probably around 4.7 lbs and 45 cm from head to toe.

That always freaks me out. That fits all in here? He's all squished up all happy in here?:



For mom? Got a great tip to wear satin pyjamas to bed as they are so slippery they'll help me roll over. The thing is... I haven't seen satin maternity jammies. And I only have a month to go until we're ready so it's hard to justify spending yet more money on maternity clothes. Although I AM buying a couple of layering shirts as the tops I have now are all riding up my stomach. And as cute as I think it might be in the privacy of my own home, it's not so nice, nor comfortable, when I realize after walking all through Ikea that my stomach has been hanging out the whole time.

I've got to buy a car seat. This is ridiculous. If they don't have it in stock it'll have to be ordered and it can take AGES apparently. So, Donald and I are heading out shopping tomorrow, we've GOT to buy one/order one. This is just silly.

I'm still totally into nesting and hanging out with Donald. Seriously, just me and him. Loving it. Loving the time together, even if it's just watching tv or me nagging him to put a dimmer switch in the nusery. We're having a great time together. For the first time in our 5 year history, we went Christmas shopping together. We NEVER do that. And we had a great time! Until I completely ran out of steam and had to sit down on a sweater display and eat a granola bar.

The little guy is totally moving around in there. It still freaks me out. He really doesn't have that much room, yet off he goes, motoring rolling around like it's nobody's business.

Looking forward to meeting him!

All for now. Have to decorate the tree.

I've said it before...I'll say it again, "You look Fabulous, Dahr-link!".

Your belly is HUGE, but you are just an "egg on a leg" as my friend used to say to me (but, she was LYING...I'm telling the truth!)

HAHAHA! I have a polish friend who always says, Dar-link!! Thank you, Norma-Ann, for bringing back fond memories of a dear friend! And I LOVE the "egg on a leg" comparison! Love it Love it Love it!

@Norma-Ann... by the way... how ARE you? You're right behind me I think and on your 3rd?

Hey Stephi...
Baby and I are both doing well, thanks! It will be our third girl. I have a "unicornate uterus" so the doctor keeps a close eye on me and I need to have a c-section, but so far no real problems. The baby's birthday is already booked for January 23rd...so we will be meeting our new kiddos right around the same time!
:)
