Round 2: 34 Weeks

How far along:  34 weeks

Baby Size: 

Weight:  It flucates but I'm up between 29-33 lbs depending on the time of day etc...


  • Reflux
  • Out of breath
  • Restless legs
  • Decreased appetite
  • Nausea and it's been bad
  • Wild dreams (I had one involving a giant lobster and a giant grasshopper loose in my house.  Grasshopper freak me out a bit with their buggy eyes)
  • I don't feel like I get up to fast, but sometimes I see little dancing lights when I get up from loading the dishwasher/or bending over. 
  • Night sweats
  • TMI Symptoms: Increase in discharge and bowel movements

Maternity Clothes:  I found some more long sleeve tops I didn't know I had.  I put one of them on.  It was already to short.

Sleep:  Up every 1 1/2 to 2 hours

Cravings/Food Aversions:  I still don't eat much.  Food just doesn't sound good.

Belly Button:  Out 

Rings on or off: On

Gender:  Still thinking girl although every so often I think boy.  Overall I say like 70% sure it's a girl

Name:  Rob's wishy washy on the girl name still, but I say we keep it because I don't want to search again.  

Movement:   Generally enough but it will have it's quiet moments where I don't like

Stretch Marks:  I haven't really been looking and checking but I still have only seen the belly ones.

Best moment: 

Looking forward to:   Christmas-not related to this baby- but I'm excited to celebrate with Eleanor.

Nervous about: 2 kids

What I miss:  Not being so anxious and paranoid about things all the time.

Labor signs: Lots of Braxton Hicks

Appointments:  Next week

Misc. I've begun to compile a list a things to get and to do.  Thankfully it's not a huge list and some of the things are things to do in Eleanor's big girl room actually. 

I ended up paying way more than I intended for our maternity/family pictures because I couldn't just narrow it down to 10 pictures. 

To Get

  • New pump parts
  • Ring sling
  • Newborn diapers
  • Size 1 diapers 
  • Gripe water
  • A baby book
  • Receiving blankets (we used this as burp clothes)
  • New bibs
  • Pacifiers (just a few in the smallest size)
  • Some fleece sleepers
To do:
  • Wash clothes/nursing pillow covers/car seat cover/newborn cloth diapers
  • Check Snuza Battery
  • Hang up wall art, and shelving in Eleanor's big girl room


  1. Ooh, good call on the gripe water. I need to add that to my list, too.

    1. That stuff was like a miracle in a bottle when it came to hiccups. lol! But I should add actual gas drops and petroleum jelly and hand sanitizer. My list is getting longer. But those are easy things to get I suppose.

  2. What are the names you have picked out? Can't believe you only have 6 weeks to go already! So excited to see that beautiful baby!! <3
