34 Weeks!

First of all, sorry this post is a day late!  I wasn't feeling well at all yesterday.  I worked in the AM and then went home and spent the rest of the day in bed...lame!  I'm feeling better today so let's hope I can make it through the work day!

I can't believe I'm 34 weeks into this pregnancy.  6 weeks (or less) left...sounds SO soon!  The Bump tells me that Carson is about the size of a Durian Fruit while Baby Center says Carson is about the size of a Cantaloupe.  Obviously they're only comparing weight now, but The Bump compared me to a cantaloupe back at 20 weeks!  The weight estimates are saying about 4.2-5.8lbs.  The length says between 17.2 and 18.7".  At our ultrasound last week (33w1d), Carson was measuring 4lbs12oz and 19.4" long!  Those measurments put him at about 4 days ahead.  (Scroll down for some ultrasound pics!)

Durian Fruit sure is weird looking!

How far along? 34 weeks already!
Total weight gain: I am now up 22lbs.  Sounds crazy since I was only up 18.5 last time!  My doctor is pleased though since I've been on the low end of normal.  Also, the nurse commented that last time I was wearing a t-shirt and flip flops and this time I was wearing boots and a coat, haha!  Maybe she was just trying to make me feel better :)
Maternity clothes? Yes!  I wear a lot of non-maternity tops still but my selection is getting limited...(scroll down for my newest bump pic!)
Stretch marks? no
Sleep: I have been sleeping pretty well but I wake up EXHAUSTED!  I'm not sure if I'm just tossing and turning too much in the night or if I'm not getting enough sleep. 
Best moment this week: We had a great ultrasound and got to see Carson one last time!  This was our 3rd visit to the elective office since Carson never wanted to cooperate!  This time he was finally ready (for the most part) so we were able to see his cute chubby cheeks and full lips! <3  Like I said above, he was measuring 4 days ahead!  We also went to our childbirth class at our hospital and it was very informative and interesting!  AND I had another doctor appointment and Dr. G is very pleased with how Carson and I are doing!
Miss Anything? The warm weather!  Ohio has had a cold front this past week and I'm not loving it. 
Movement: Carson is still moving a lot!  I recorded my stomach bouncing the other night from his hiccups, it's so cute! 
Food cravings: Still fruit (currently drinking a homemade smoothie) and I also have been eating Cheerios a lot...random!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Gender: Baby BOY Carson!
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: I've still been having some back aches but there are a few exercises and stretches that seem to help.  I also had a scary bleeding episode last week after our ultrasound.  Luckily everything is fine but I had to have a blood vessel on my cervix cauterized...not super fun! :/
Belly Button in or out? Halfie, haha!
Wedding rings on or off? On and loose still!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: My family shower which is this coming Sunday.  I'm actually a bit anxious because most of the guests are people I haven't seen since my bridal shower and/or wedding 4 years ago!  BUT I am excited to get things for Carson and to see some of the family that I actually do know! :)  Also looking forward to 35/35 next week!

Here is Carson at 33w1d measuring in at 4lbs12oz and 19.4" long!
Cracking a little smile for Mommy & Daddy :)

sleeping like Daddy...mouth open!

<3 those lips!
Here is my bump at 34w exactly!  (Please excuse me looking sick...I felt awful!)
