34 weeks

Week: 34.
Baby is the size of:  A cantaloupe.
Weight gain: Just under 14 pounds.
Cravings: Sandwiches. Chips and dip. Watermelon.
Sleep:  No bueno. 2-3 bathroom trips per night, insane heartburn and pelvic pain keep me up.
Movement: Insane. I'm pretty sure #3 flipped to breech for a few days there but is now back in position. I've seen lots of feet move across the belly.
Symptoms:  SPD. Nearly constant heartburn. Bloody noses. Also... stretch marks. I honestly didn't think it was even possible given the fact my belly was one giant stretch mark from Elden, but as a friend of mine put it, it's like matryoshka dolls with stretch marks. Inception stretchmarks, if you will. Stretch marks upon stretch marks upon stretch marks. I'm thrilled.
Happenings: All we have left to do in the nursery is paint/hang the doors, hang up pictures, make a mobile and finish off the curtain rod finials. It's definitely a room I can take a baby home to though! I'm so so happy with how it turned out. I also have the hospital bag about 50% packed which is a relief since we have (hopefully) less than 6 weeks til we meet this baby. We have everything we *need* now except I might look into a replacement diaper bag (maybe something like this since ours is worse for the wear) and this hoodie for our ERGO since I suspect we will be doing a lot of baby wearing this go around.We also have our big ultrasound with the high risk doctor on Monday morning just to make sure I didn't actually have gestational diabetes although I'm not really sure what they will do differently if they suspect they missed it? I don't think that's the case, but we'll see. I'm hoping to get some good face pictures of this kiddo, though!
