34 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 34 Weeks
Size of baby: 18 inches long and weighs almost 4 3/4 lbs. Jillian is the size of a cantaloupe!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 27lbs. I have now exceeded my weight gain with Brody. I gained 25lbs with him. :) I'm hoping Jillian will be big like Brody (He was 8lbs 5 oz) so I feel like all this weight isn't from all the food I've been eating lately! Ha!
Maternity Clothes: Yes-all maternity clothes except for dresses.
Gender: Girl!
Movement: Yes, she is moving all the time! My ribs have been sore from all her kicks lately!
Sleep: I have been sleeping about 6 hours a night and I really feel so good! I have had so much energy this week and I really am pretty comfortable still. Brody makes me tired more than pregnancy does! Ha!
Symptoms: Crazy dreams, reflux and Braxton Hicks contractions.
What I miss: Nothing
Cravings: None
Best Moment this week: My sweet baby shower yesterday, as well as my 34 week appointment today! My appointment went well. Her heartbeat was great and I am measuring right on schedule!
What I am looking forward to: Just waiting for our baby girl!

I always enjoy looking at my weekly pictures to see how much Jillian has grown. Here I am at 14 weeks, 24 weeks, and 34 weeks. It's amazing how big of a change there was in just 20 weeks, but especially in the past 10 weeks!! And just for fun...Here I am when I was 34 weeks with Brody compared to 34 weeks with Jillian!
I will post baby shower pictures tomorrow! ;)

You look so cute girl. I have the same due date as you and I've gained 24 pounds (I only gained 23 total with my daughter). I'm thinking it's because I've enjoyed food much more this time around ;)

Mama Llama said...

haven't dropped in in a while, but thought of you and wondered if you ahd had the baby yet!

1- so excited is a girl.

2- you look awesome

3-- LOVE your hair! I love the length, but that you can pull it back for swim lessons? how did you manage that? Mine is a similar length right now, and i can't accomplish that. I like the layers, and the semi side bang/layer.

Can't wait to see Jillian's nursery. I will be back sooner this time, I promise! you're on my radar now. HA!

Amanda M. said...

Carie said...

You don't look like you could have gained 27 lbs! You look fantastic!

Ashley Fisher :) said...

You are too cute; it doesn't even look like you have gained at all (except your tummy of course!) I meant to tell you that the onsie I sent I know was not perfect :) I am still working on my monogramming skills but I thought at least Jillian could wear it for pjs or something! Hope ya'll have a good day! Brody looks like her is going to be a great big brother!!

Kathy said...

Wow - I can't believe you only have six weeks left. It seems like only yeterday I read your post announcing the pregnancy.

Your family is adorable. Thanks for sharing your lives with us.

Lauren said...
