34 Week Bumpdate

May 29, 2018

Three more weeks!! Oh little baby, I am getting so dang excited to meet you. Every single day I think about all the fun things we’re going to be able to do with you and my heart swells. My excitement level goes up so much each day, which in turn increases my fear of losing you. I just want you to be here already. I know three weeks really isn’t that long, but it seems like forever at this point!!

We redecorated the nursery over the weekend, and it was actually really good. It was kind of hard to see all your brother’s things come down, but it felt really nice to put up all your decorations and get the room ready for you. I was afraid that it wouldn’t have the same feeling of familiarity and peace that it did before, but it absolutely does. I can feel your brother in there too; he’s going to be watching over you very closely.

On Saturday we took you up to Logan to visit your siblings one last time before you are born. I can’t wait to take you to see them once you are here! Yesterday we went to Buy Buy Baby for the first time since we were pregnant with Carter, and rather than being difficult, it was actually a lot of fun. We bought you so many fun things! Both your dad and I can’t wait to spoil you.

I’m pretty sure that you are going through a growth spurt right now. For the past week I have been absolutely starving every day, and have to eat like every two hours! It’s crazy! But you just keep packing on the pounds, and I will keep eating all the food for you!

I hope that later when/if you read these, you don’t feel upset about me being so afraid. It doesn’t mean that I’m not excited for you. It means the exact opposite, actually. Because for every little bit of fear that I feel, I feel a million times more excited. We are both so ready for you to be here, so you just keep growing big and strong in there!! I’m hoping we’ll get to see you again at our appointment tomorrow. We love you!!

How far along: 34 weeks!!! Holy crap!
Baby is the size of: butternut squash!
Total weight gain: I haven’t weighed myself in a few days, but probably a few more pounds more than last week!
Maternity clothes: Yes, but we’re onto dresses now!
Sleep: I love to sleep right now! I’ve been falling asleep without a show on, so that’s a really big deal.
Best moment this week: seeing you on the ultrasound last week was so great. Last night though, after dad fell asleep, you went crazy with movement. It was awesome. I love having some special time together.
Movement: So much still!
Food cravings: No cravings, but my favorite thing right now is peanut butter on waffles!
Anything making you queasy or sick: I still don’t like mint. It’s so weird.
Have you started to show yet: I love my belly!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Oh super moody lately. I’m sure your dad loves it.
Looking forward to: Just every single appointment from here on out. We are getting so close!
