Preggers I: 34 Weeks

How far along?  34 weeks

How I am feeling?  Relieved that this week is over, and trying to focus on a joyful and relaxing Christmas.
How big is baby?  The size of a cantaloupe or butternut squash...17.2-18.7 inches, and 4.2-5.8 pounds.

Sleep:  I sleep really well, Praise God!  I've also needed sleep like crazy with all of our running around, and traveling, and visiting family.
Boy/Girl Prediction:  No prediction.
Baby Nicknames:  Pretty much Baby, Jitterbug, Nugget, or Little One

Best moment this week:  Not going into labor during Nick and Mandy's wedding.  Also, being able to have a great time with them, ALL Day, without being too tired or having aches and pains.  I really wanted to be able to enjoy this wedding and celebration, and God was so faithful.  I needed to make a point to get off my feet when I could, but I was able to do everything I wanted to, and be there for Mandy and Nick at this wedding.
Food cravings:  Caesar salad, and Fairytale Brownies

Missing:   Regular coffee
Movements:  The best parts of my day are feeling these movements!  Also, I was at dinner this week with our Aunts Sharon and Nancy and the baby was moving like crazy, so Aunt Sharon felt the baby move.  Soon after her hand was on there and she was feeling the baby, I sort of moved, and groaned, and she jumped a mile.  It was hilarious.

Labor Signs:  No.  Thank goodness!

General Attitude:  Taking each day as it comes, and enjoying our time with family and vacation from work.

What I am looking forward to this week:  Relaxing, Christmas, and a baby shower in Michigan.

Milestones:  My mom had me at 34 weeks... and this week, I am 34 weeks along.  If I make it to next Sunday, to 35 weeks, I will have carried longer than my mom did.
