Week 34

Well, the weather has finally turned more bearable (as in we're out of the triple digits) and I'm finally turning into my last lap of this race! 6 more weeks to go so I'll try to keep better status of our week to week progress.

Week: 34
Weight gained to-date: 26 lbs
Belly measurement: 39.5 inches (whoa!!!)
Estimated Baby size: 18 inches, 4.5 lbs
Swelling: YES! Hands, feet, ankles are starting as well.
Stretch Marks: Not yet. But I've been lathering up cause I keep seeing signs of them on my bottom. But I've been seeing that since about month 4. *Maybe* we'll get lucky???
How Mommy's feeling: Over all, pretty good. I'm excited that I made it through the Texas tailgate and the game. Also soooo happy that we beat Tech!!! Goooo Horns!
Happenings: This week, we got the pack 'n play which will double as our bassinett for the first few months. I also got around to cleaning and steralizing the beautiful glass baby bottles that were used as vases at my first baby shower. Now we have 6 ready to go! At my 34 week appointment, Dr. Collins feels that the baby should arrive some time between the middle of October and the first week of November. A pretty conservative estimate all around. She expects the baby's birth weight to be around the low 7 lbs which is exactly what I've been shooting for.
