34 weeks

how far along: 34 weeks! 

baby size: BT should be around 18 inches and almost 5lbs. We go for an ultrasound next week so I should get some more exact measurements. Looking forward to seeing how big he's gotten! 

baby's progress: We are still hoping that Bennett flips. He is completely sideways right now and is showing very little sign of trying to turn. There have been a few mornings that I wake up and he's somewhat in the right position but as soon as I get up he's back to being sideways. 

weight gain: 25lbs (!!!!) this is crazy to me! 

stretch marks: Still none, & really thankful for this!

sleep: Sleep has gone back down hill. I'm just to the point where I am so big I can't get comfortable at all. 

gender: BOY! Bennett Tucker.

He moves all the time! It's my favorite thing ever : )

best moment this week: I've had a really productive week at home and at work. I'm feeling extremely ready for him to be here!! I am almost finished with my maternity leave sub plans and this is a HUGE weight off my shoulders!

looking forward to: Our dr's appointment next week. We finally get to see our little man on ultrasound! We haven't had one since 18 weeks and I have been DYING to see what he looks like! I'm also hopeful we will establish some sort of "plan" for his birth if he still hasn't turned (aka c-section the week before thanksgiving if I have it my way!)

Also looking forward to our "babymoon" next weekend! We are heading down to Jacksonville for the Georgia/Florida game but are taking a couple of extra days to vacation before : ) Looking forward to a relaxing weekend with the hubs! Last vacation before BABY!

food cravings: I haven't really had any cravings this entire pregnancy, more aversions than anything. 

weirdest food I ate this week: Again, nothing too weird..still on the ice kick though. I thought I may be anemic but they checked last week and I'm not, just really like ice right now ha!

anything making you queasy or sick: No, & I could not be more thankful for this!!!!

labor signs: Tons of Braxton Hicks contractions still.  

what I miss: Being skinny. I'll be totally honest, I really don't like the way I look pregnant and can't wait for Bennett to be here so I can get this body back in shape!

symptoms: Still having terrible leg cramps and my sciatic nerve has been acting up. Since I have a pretty far commute (50 miles) by the time I get home in the afternoons I have to lay on a heating pad for a minute. 

things that suck: Having to wear anything other than pajamas totally sucks. 

things that don't suck: Feeling READY. I know it's still early, but I feel so good knowing that if he came right this second he would be perfectly fine. I'm hoping to get in 4 more weeks and then he is free to come!!


  1. You are absolutely ADORABLE! I'm praying for y'all and baby BT's arrival!

  2. I'm a new follower and was looking for fellow bumpdaters. :) You look really great, but I know how you feel about looking forward to getting back in shape! I lost a ton of weight before getting pregnant so now I feel super self-conscious.

    That is so exciting that you're getting another ultrasound next week! I bet he will look much bigger than he did in his previous ultrasounds!

  3. I am right there with you on missing being skinny. I'm not a huge fan of how pregnancy has changed my body, and being pregnant with a girl, I feel like I really did grow sideways before growing forwards. I have to catch myself from looking at my old jeans and bras and getting down on myself about not fitting into them anymore. I'm sure post baby, things will go (relatively) back to normal but it's tough still! You look fabulous, by the way. Only 4-6 more weeks is so exciting!
