So technically I am 35 weeks today but I took my 34 week picture yesterday and had an appointment and was planning on doing my post yesterday and it just didn't happen so I am doing it today, and then I will do my 35 week post later in the week.

How far along? when I took the picture yesterday 34w 6d

Baby's size? measured about 5lbs 4oz at our appointment yest, 30th percentile

Weight Gain? 19lbs so far

Maternity clothes? i have some long sleeve maternity tops for work as I know only have 2 scrub tops that fit and I cant justify buying new scrub tops to wear for 4 weeks or so and actually by the time i order them and they get here i may only have about  2.5-3 weeks of wearing them...not worth it to me, but other than that no, my jeans  I am wearing are still my last non maternity pair that fit with a bella band on the waist

Stretch marks? not a single one 

Belly button in or out? definitely out, sometimes I want to buy some pasties and just put one on my belly button haha

Sleep? so good lately, I have been running on 100mph these days so by the time I go to bed I am exhausted

Foods I am loving? fresh fruit, donuts 

Foods I am hating? nothing really

Best moment this week? getting the nursery painted and the baby furniture in!!

Movement? moving all the time, although he needs to do a back flip or something and get his head down!! At my appointment yesterday they confirmed what I knew was coming, they scheduled a c-section, they said its easier to cancel them than to schedule them last minute so unless he flips himself over he will be here on May 17th...unless he tries to come earlier than that but Im thinking no.  I was and still am pretty upset about this, not that c-sections are evil or anything but its just not what I ever imagined for myself, when I got pregnant I always pictured myself having a natural delivery, thats what I've always wanted and the fact that this pregnancy has been so uneventful and things have gone so smoothly the potential for a c section totally throws that whole image out the window.  I am no dummy and I know where his head is I can feel his big hard noggin and so I totally knew this was a possibility if he didn't flip over but the fact that its actually scheduled now makes it more of a reality and something I have to wrap my head around, and ultimately I just want him to be healthy, I see so much scary stuff at work that I know a healthy baby is such a blessing but I am still holding out hope that he may flip still and I am thinking of finding a chiropractor licensed in the Webster Method which is supposed to flip breech babies. Well see...

Symptoms? more tired, and my lower back and hips have started to get sore especially by the end of the day

Gender? a lil boy, Landon Matthew

What I miss? I could use a ice cold beer or glass of wine from time to time

What I'm looking forward to? getting our bedding in and finishing up the nursery

Weekly Wisdom: God is in control of this whole situation, not me, and I need to have faith that He knows whats best and its all in His hands. 

Milestone: less than a month to go!!

Emotions: the bigger this baby gets and the closer I get to his arrival the more real this becomes, and I already love this baby sooooo much I cant even begin to imagine the love I will feel for him once he is really here

a picture from our growth ultrasound yesterday, thats his foot up by his face basically poking his eye ...he had both feet up in his face, it was pretty funny, and he had so much hair you could see it waving in the fluid, I think he may need a haircut at birth LOL!!

You look great and it seems like everything is coming together.

Don't sweat the c-section and I only say that because I may be in the same boat with you. They've said it's a very real possibility for me based on her size. No, it's not what I'd prefer, but we have healthy babies so at least we have that. You'll be great and he'll be healthy!!

We're down to just a few weeks!! So exciting :) Our kiddos might be just a few days a part!

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
