34 Weeks!!

How far along? 34 Weeks, 8 1/2 months!!

Baby's size and stats? Your baby now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds 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. Info taken from

Gain? 22 lbs as of Monday, thats not too bad, right?

Maternity clothes? Really depends still, I can fit in my jeans still with the Belly Band, and my longer shirts, though I do have a pair of maternity jeans and quite a few maternity tops.

Sleep? It's still all over the place. Though the last few nights I've taken benadryl to help with my cold and it's helped me sleep through the night.

Foods I am loving? Same as always chocolate! Sandwiches, pizza.

Foods I am hating? Same, greasy stuff, meat.

Best moment this week? Having the Doc say that we only need to keep her in for 3 more weeks! That's not much longer! Also my Grandma stopped by and gave me one of the cute blankets she has made for Abigail.

Movement? All the time. Little movements are definitely much larger feeling now. Even just a little shift of her leg or arm and it feels huge!

Symptoms? 1. Nausea, yes its back. .
2. Contractions every day, oh and braxton hicks in between.
3. Headaches, back aches, pretty much the whole body aches.
4. Cravings.
5. Stretch marks! ICK!!!!

Gender? A GIRL!!!

What I'm looking forward to? Baby Shower Feb 5th and one the 17th!

Milestones: Making it to 34 weeks! It's been a long 4 weeks of Bed Rest but making it this far really does keep me motivated to keeping her in as long as possible!

Failure. When you try and try without success it definitely makes you feel like a failure. After finding out that everything was fine with Skyler (which we knew deep down he was fine), it hit even harder that I was the reason we were failing. Which I know now was added stress and stress helped add to the failing. Through out the whole thing Skyler was always supportive and never made me feel like a failure. In fact he was always telling me the opposite, that we were one month closer to our goal.

Finding out. Finding out we were pregnant was amazing, unreal. I still remember the feeling, and even now I wake up with that same feeling. That feeling like, wow this has to be a dream. I still remember every detail of that day and I know I won't ever forget it.

Father. I know that Skyler will be the best father. Even now he talks to Abigail, and tells her everything we've done, everything we've gotten for her. I'm so glad that he strives to succeed at work, school and in church, to make sure that our life together as a family, and him as a father, are where they should be.

Eighteen Months. It took us 18 months of trying to finally get a positive. Eighteen, negatives. Eighteen months of wondering and heart break.

Early Eviction. I'll just let ya see this post...Early Eviction

Eight months. We were married on our 8 month dating anniversary. It was crazy to think that 8 months before we hadn't known each other at all. The last 8 months of this pregnancy have been very hectic, especially the two weeks prior to month 8. It's been wonderful to have such a supportive husband.

Depo shot. I'd also call this the devil's shot. This is where all our problems started. I would never recommend this to anyone. The side effects are weight gain, skin reactions, depression, nervousness, change in sex drive, hair loss... and blah blah blah. I wish I would have done some more research on it right away, just thought it was fine. I trusted my doctor.

Doctor/Davis Hospital. I absolutely love my OB, he is the OB that found cervical cancer in my sister, and he also did the surgery to remove it. He is so kind and I love that his office is within walking distance of the hospital. It's right across the street.

Dating. Skyler and I didn't date for very long before getting engaged (less than 4 months) and so our dating phase lasted up through the beginning of our marriage. We met the Friday after Thanksgiving 2007, became a couple Dec 16 2007. And right away talked marriage and life. It was amazing.
