34 weeks with kiddo #2
(actually, this was yesterday at 33 weeks 6 days, but who's counting?)
Compared to 34 weeks with Lizzy:
How far along: 34 weeks.
Size of baby: A butternut squash (?!) (The Bump) or a cantaloupe (Baby Center). In other words, about 17-18 inches and 4-5 pounds.
Weight Gain:Still about the same at 18 pounds.Maybe a +1 of 19 pounds.
Symptoms: Heartburn. I'm not sleeping much, and my back is really sore. I had blood drawn for my thyroid again yesterday, but haven't heard the results yet obviously. Other than that, everything looked good at my appointment yesterday, even my blood pressure....which is a freaking MIRACLE because minutes before the appointment, Justin told me that he'd almost been electrocuted at work thanks to a power line locate that was apparently three feet off.
Exercise: Nope. I'll have the go-ahead to do whatever I want even if it causes contractions in about two weeks...so that's nice!
Clothes: Yep, maternity. Happily, I found a few maternity pieces at a local second-hand store that I think will bridge the gap nicely for me!
Cravings/Aversions:Nothing in particular.
Movement: Yep :)
Worries:Nothing big. The OHSU thing worries me a little, but there's not really anything I can do about it either...
Milestones:During the ultrasound, we saw her open one eye, practice breathing, and wiggle all around!
What's Different This Time: Nothing really...at this point in pregnancy with Lizzy, they estimated that she was about 5 pounds and predicted a 7 pound baby. Sure enough, she was 7 pounds 3 oz. During the ultrasound yesterday they estimated that this kiddos is about 5 pounds as well, and on track to be a 7 pound baby. The only real difference is that by this time, we knew Lizzy had a full head of hair because we could totally see it in the ultrasound! This baby is head-down, facing my back, so we weren't able to really tell whether she's got hair or not yet...I guess we'll see!
Best moment of the week: Seeing the sweet little girl at the ultrasound yesterday. Also? Lizzy was just PRECIOUS during the whole thing...she kept saying, "Awwwww, that's my sweet little baby sister!"
