Week 34 Bumpdate

{maternity session sneak peek by Allison Kuhn}
 
How far along: 34 weeks

Baby Size: A cantaloupe {17inches, 4.5 lbs}!

Weight gain: 26 lbs

Maternity clothes: Excited that our weekend was beautiful and warm enough to wear my new non-maternity lavender maxi dress {pictured in bump photo} for my maternity shoot. Love it? You can find it in 26 different colors from Zappos {here}!

Stretch marks: Nope.
 
Sleep: Some nights I sleep like a champ. Some nights I wrestle my Bump Nest for hours, play on my iPad at 3 am while baby girl dances in my tummy and consume Tums like candy to keep my heartburn at bay. Wouldn't trade it for the world though.
 
Gender: Girl!

Movement: Tons!

Best moment this week: Celebrated getting a new position at my firm, our maternity shoot and touring the hospital's maternity center in preparation for our delivery day!

Looking forward to: Meeting our pediatrician and our 34 week check up today.

Food cravings: Same - fresh orange juice (with lots of pulp), egg sandwices and pineapple!!
 
  Anything making you queasy or sick: No.
 
Labor Signs: Eek! No, but crazy that we only have 42 days left!
 
What I miss: Not having back pain.
 
Symptoms: Back pain, heartburn, shortness of breath, tiredness, random belly pains, etc.
 
Nursery: Finally got around to putting all of our shower goodies away in the nursery, hung our shelf and started decorating the walls. 

Belly Button in or out? Still even and super sensitive.

Wedding rings on or off? On and no swelling!

Mood: Excited!

Workouts: Ehh, slowing down on working out with my back pain. 

Prayer for Caroline: 
 
Dear Lord, Thank you for blessing Caroline, Matt and I with amazing friends and family. We are so grateful for their generosity, love and support throughout this amazing pregnancy journey. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Give thanks to the Lord, call on His name; proclaim His deeds among the peoples. - Psalm 105:1-2

  26. Love the maternity shots! I feel so silly when I take pics with baby bump, but you look so cute! I have a question for you…..have you found a baby memory/keepsake book that you like? I have been looking for one and have had a hard time finding what I'm looking for.

  27. Christina, I will be 34 weeks pregnant tomorrow and like you worked out fairly consistently. I purchased a pregnancy yoga video about 2 weeks or so ago and have really noticed an improvement in my back and hip pain.

    You look amazing and are an inspiration! Hope you can find some relief!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yay! You have so much to celebrate! Congrats on the changes at work!

  30. Love that dress and your maternity pics - always so nice to look back on your weekly pics! x

  31. I can't believe this bump of yours! How cute :) I had back pain like crazy around this time when I was pregnant. A prenatal massage helped me a LOT! And that pineapple juice could put you into labor! haha But that might not be a bad thing. Enjoy these last few weeks!

  32. Can't wait to see the rest of Allison's pictures!! Lovely!

  33. Perfect color on you my dear. So so pretty! I cannot wait to see the rest of the pics from the shoot. Wow, we are getting down to crunch time!!

  34. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL photos & letter!! I've enjoyed following your blog...we're expecting our first as well, but I'm not due until early October, so I'm taking notes from you! I'm a shortie too, so I was wondering (sorry this is SO tacky to ask!), but did you order the regular or petite version? And what size? I don't know how much to size up to accommodate the growing belly! Best of luck w/ a speedy and safe delivery!!
