34 weeks

6 weeks to go! Baby Heartbeat is almost 5 pounds at this point, and I'm feeling it. This week I've just been a little miserable and uncomfortable. The easy tasks are getting hard to do, like tying my shoes, picking up toys, getting out of bed, etc. Sleep has not been great either. But I do love feeling the little guy/girl rocking and rolling around in there all the time. We're getting excited to meet our new little one. Ruby talks about how Baby Heartbeat will play toys with her and where the baby will sit in the car. I think she'll be a great big sister for sure.

Andy and I had a lovely time on our Babymoon this week at the coast. It was so fun to get away with just the two of us. And the big news is that we decided on names for this baby! They're still a secret so I won't share, but we like them. And I'm relieved to have them picked out.

I think I forgot to say that last week we met with our doula Amy. We really love her and are excited for her to be a part of our birth again. She's pretty much fantastic, and actually a lot like me. :) It was nice to catch up with her. I go to the midwife again this Wednesday for my 34 week appointment. I think the baby is in the right position. It might flip around to posterior now and then, but it's been head down now for a while. It gets the hiccups a lot.

Changes this week: Miserableness and tiredness have really set in. There's so much to do and so little energy to do it. I'm just trying to chip away at my to do list one thing at a time.

Cravings this week: Sweets, but I'm really trying to stay away from a lot of them. I passed up a donut this morning. :)
