34 Weeks...Countdown on!

34 Weeks and definitely feeling it!!! I forgot about this stage of pregnancy when I start feeling so ready for the baby! I'm starting to get a little uncomfortable - especially because the baby seems to be so high and it feels like I have hardly any lung capacity. Also, throughout this pregnancy I've had the worst heartburn and indigestion. Now, I've read about what to do with this - more, smaller meals, avoid "trigger" foods...too bad those "trigger" foods are the good stuff! So, I guess I'll just face the consequences of eating chocolate and fried food!



We had our perinatologist visit this week - they do the sonograms to make sure the baby is growing, etc. - and here's the rundown:



*Baby measuring in the 75% - he currently weighs 6 pounds!!!! (Now, that being said, the doctor said that it's not the most accurate because it's based on measurements).


*The baby has hair!


*Everything looks good - internal structures, organs, fluid, etc.



We're now at 4 1/2 weeks until August 10, which will be baby boy #2's birthday!!!!
