Week 34: Starting the nursery

Waist Measurements: 45" at the belly button

Weigh in: 160lbs according to the Dr.

Pregnancy Symptoms this Week:
  • Slight hand and feet swelling
  • Heart burn
  • Tiredness
Pregnancy first this week: My first pregnancy stretch mark! :( Guess it really is hereditary cause I tried everything to avoid them! Oh Well! A few battle wounds never hurt any one. Also let this be a lesson to girls wanting to get their belly button pierced. It's not pretty with a big belly...
My Pregnancy Brain: Now that the nursery is started its really staring to hit me that we are going to have a baby very soon. I cant wait to hold her!

Pregnancy Prep: It's not done yet but at least its started!
Mommy Chair and Baby Chair!
I call this Phase 1. Phase 2 to come.
Can you believe my mom and sister made the bedding for me!?

Dr Visits: every thing looks good, baby is still head down and her heart beat is great. BP is looking good and no protein in my urine. Life is good! I also got my maternity leave worked out. It looks like my last day to work is August 7th. Holy Smokes that's in 2 weeks!!!!

Belly Shot:
What the baby looks like this week: She now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds and is almost 18 inches long. Her fat layers — which will help regulate her body temperature once she's born — are filling her out, making her rounder. Her skin is also smoother than ever. Her central nervous system is maturing and her lungs are continuing to mature as well.

She is begining to develop her own immune system, instead of relying solely on antibodies received through the placenta.
