Bumpdate: 34 Weeks

size of the baby: Butternut Squash 

total weight gain:  22 lbs. 

gender: Baby Girl - Miss Olivia Rose 

movement:I can officially see her moving. Like right now, as I'm laying on the couch typing this, I can see her moving from the right side of my stomach to my left. She definitely "punchs" Ella when she feels her space is being invaded too. Ella thinks it's funny though :) 

missing: Not much. I'll be ready for a frozen margarita when all this over, but I'm surviving just fine. 

craving: I just want to eat ice cream at every meal. Is there something wrong with that? (Don't worry - I'm not eating ice cream with every meal. I'm limiting myself to once a day & in very reasonable serving sizes!) 

exercise: Due to the scare with the contractions on Wednesday of last week, I really scaled back my activity level on Wednesday & Thursday. Working half days has me on my feet a lot less too, so I totaled just over 60,000 steps for the week. I'm ok with that though, since it was clearly what my body needed. 

symptoms: My sciatica has gone away, which is awesome. The heartburn & Braxton Hicks - not so much. They're pretty much just part of my every day life at this point though & don't really bother me all that much. 

best moments: I am not a lazy person by any stretch of the imagination, but I have to admit that I'm really enjoying working my half days so far. I get in to school at 7:15 & stay until 11:30. That gives me time to teach two classes & prepare materials for my afternoon sub. I'm definitely bringing work home with me every day, but grading on the couch while watching Gossip Girl is totally better than grading in my desk chair under florescent lights! 

looking forward to: A quiet weekend at home & obviously eating some ice cream tonight :)
