I’ll do a weekly bump update so I can look back and see how things progress and what was happening at various points along the way.
35 days to go!!
I feel like I’m burning up some days. I am an oven!! I would prefer to wear tank tops and flip flops but that’s a little weird, plus Price is threatening to throw out my flip flops because he can’t handle me wearing them anymore. So we were out shopping on Saturday and I got 2 pairs of shoes to wear into the fall.
I am so determined to get The Bean to flip and get out of the Frank Breech position that I’ve been trying some DIY things to get things going. Like I have been laying back and propping up my butt and legs to elevate things to get the baby to try to right itself, which would actually be upside down. Plus then I read about putting something cold on the top of my stomach so that baby would move away from it. I feel quite insane doing all of this but I don’t want The Bean’s legs all weird after delivery. They said it won’t be an issue but it still bugs me.
We set up the bouncy chair that my sister gave us at the shower so Kemper would get used to having it around. Plus, so he’d get used to hearing ‘no’ 5,000x when he tries to chew stuffed animals that hang from the bar above the seat. He was really determined early on to get them but he’s getting over it now.
I finally took out my belly button ring. I bet I could keep it in longer but I figure i’ll just take it out now before it does get uncomfortable. Now I only hope that my belly button never gets weird since it still looks the same, only slightly shallower.
I have THREE doctors appointments this upcoming week. Ugh.
34 Week Bump Update
Current Due Date: 12/1/13- BUT I’m scheduled for my C-section on 11/25! Thanksgiving in the hospital!
Weight Gain: guessing around 8 1/2 – 9 1/2 lbs total
Stretch Marks: none 🙂

Clothing: still a big mix of stuff… maternity pants and regular pants with a belly band paired with maternity and regular tops BUT I finally just ordered a few more maternity things from Old Navy which should arrive mid week
Cravings/Aversions: totally in love with Jelly Belly jelly beans, but other than that I am still pretty indecisive when it comes to picking out what to eat
Sleep: getting really tired again so I’ve been going to be really early again.
Mood: pretty even but I was extra sensitive on Monday and was pretty much drained and ready to cry all day for no real reason
Movement: the baby shifts around a lot but I’m not feeling kicks since the baby is Frank Breech. I keep telling The Bean to move but it’s just not listening.
Milestones: picked up The Breeze playard from work. We will use the bassinet part and set it up next to the bed for The Bean to sleep in before it’s in the crib in it’s room
What I miss: being able to sneeze without the fear of one day peeing. lovely.
