34 Weeks Pregnant with Baby #3

Lainey (left), Cambry (right)

How Far Along:  34 Weeks

Baby's Size:  Cantaloupe

Maternity Clothes: Rotating through the last few things that fit. I don't think any of my t-shirts quite cover my belly. This is basically what I look like around the house.

Gus Gus (from Cinderella) in case you haven't seen it in a while

Movement: He is very active. Sometimes I think he is trying to bust out of there. I have no idea what position he is in though.

Sleep: Great. Although hard to flip sides and get out of bed. I am really missing sleeping on my back and stomach. So tired of side sleeping.

Symptoms: Just the usual - tired and uncomfortable, braxton hicks, charlie horses when I wake up and restless leg syndrome. The legs get restless only at night though. And usually while Greg and I are watching a show or lying in bed. I suddenly have to kick my legs like crazy. I think he still thinks RLS is a made up thing.

Best Moment this Week / Baby Prep Progress: We moved the girls into the same room on Friday and made great progress on the nursery on Saturday. We still need to hang the mobile so after that I can take some pictures on the real camera and post them. We are still in the adjustment phase with room sharing. Lainey has not been her usual easy-to-bed self. It has only been 3 nights but so far she has cried hard every night. Then of course Cambry comes out after 15 seconds to let us know that Lainey is crying. She has been a super sweet big sister and will sometimes stand next to the crib and sing to Lainey. But Lainey keeps screaming. So we have rocked her to sleep but I don't want to have to do that every night especially since baby boy will be here soon. Hopefully after more time things will get better.

What I miss: Feeling normal and having energy.

What I am Looking Forward to: We plan to make a trip out to either Dewberry Farm or Blessington Farm next weekend. Hopefully the weather will cooperate!

And now for the best comment of the week from a random stranger at the grocery store:

Lady: Are you having a boy?
Me: Yes.
Lady: I can tell. Aren't boy pregnancies so much easier than girl pregnancies?
Me: Well actually this one has been really hard. Maybe just because I am now chasing around 2 little ones.
Lady: Oh yeah it is exhausting but the nausea is so much better right?
Me: Well mine has been equally bad for all 3.
Lady: Oh really? I didn't even know I was pregnant for the first 3 months! So you are due soon right?
Me: Yes getting close...6 more weeks.
Lady: OH (shocked)! Well...(looking down at my belly) he is going to be a good size!!

WHY. JUST WHY. I kinda wanted to say - "What do you mean?" I have also thought about telling people my due date is in January just to add some extra shock :)

Everyone thinks your pregnancy must be just like their's! I love that you're telling them you're due in January - that's pretty awesome. And so sweet that Cambry sings to Lainey! Sweet girls. Hang in there, Mama!
