34 Week Update

I can't believe I'm already 34 weeks pregnant! Reese is weighing in at around 4 3/4 pounds at the size of a cantaloupe & she's nearly 18 inches long! Crazy. The best thing I read this week on Baby Center was that babies born at 34-37 weeks with no other health issues usually do just fine. Not that I'm ready or she's ready, but it's good to know & puts me at ease!!

How am I feeling? This has actually been a good week! Less discomfort & more energy which is nice. I had my OB check-up Monday & the doctor ended up checking to see if I was dilated after I told him about my persistent Braxton Hicks contractions last week. Not dilated! I'm also scheduled for an abdominal ultrasound for my gallbladder tomorrow so we'll see what happens there. So far no more gallbladder attacks but I've been careful about what I'm eating.

Any new changes this week? Not really! Reese is still moving like crazy & her movements are only getting stronger! I was on my laptop this week when she actually kicked it so hard that it tipped backwards. She's pretty cute! I can definitely see a pattern in her sleep & wake times. She loves the morning, around 8am, is quiet mid-morning, up after lunch & super active at night around 9pm.

Weight gain? 13.5 pounds.
