baby brooks: 34 weeks

Look at post below for a recent photo. Those were taken just this past weekend.

How Far Along: 34 Weeks

Maternity Clothes: ready for normal clothes again. Found some cute maternity tanks that I'm wearing the life out of in this 105 degree heat!  

Fruit/Veggie: Cantalope

Baby changes: Your baby now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds (like your average cantaloupe) 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. If you've been nervous about preterm labor, you'll be happy to know that babies born between 34 and 37 weeks who have no other health problems generally do fine. They may need a short stay in the neonatal nursery and may have a few short-term health issues, but in the long run, they usually do as well as full-term babies.

Best Moment this week: My sweet friends hosted an essentials baby shower for us! It was precious and our church family truly blessed us! 

Gender: Baby Boy..and he has a first name...Brooks! Still not certain on a middle name. 

Movement: Still very active but he's running out of room!

Food Cravings: not really anymore

Sleep: Sleep? What's that?

What I am looking forward to: Feeling normal again. Not having to pee every 5 minutes. And meeting baby brooks in 5 weeks or less!

Symptoms: The nausea is under control as long as I take my zofran. I'm still having lots of contractions and have even been to the dr a couple of unplanned times to make sure I wasn't going into labor.
