How far along: 34 weeks
Size of baby: Butternut squash, baguette, basketball hoop or quokka. 18-19 inches long (head to toe) and 4.5-5 lbs.
Wearing/Maternity Clothes: This maxi dress and shorts with stretchy waistbands. I feel like I’m starting to explode.
Sleep: Still pretty decent! I’m snatching all the extra minutes in the mornings these last few weeks.
Dream of the week: I was babysitting about 20 kids by myself in a 4-story house while all the parents attended a banquet. The kids were running wild all over the house and I was having a hard time corralling them. I finally managed to get them all outside in a grassy field where we were going to play a game. I needed everyone to divide up into 2 circular groups, but Loren (who was my brother and the main mischief instigator) and the other older kids were doing their own thing. I tried yelling at them, but you know how in your dreams you can’t talk or run sometimes? No one could hear me and it was very frustrating. I somehow managed to get the kids to form circles, but into 4 groups instead of 2. And then I woke up.
Cravings: Nothing really this week.
Baby movement: Her head is down and her little feet like to kick around on my right side.
Gender: Little Lady
Challenges this week: Rolling out of bed is getting slightly more difficult. Not completely a challenge yet, though!
Best moment this week: My long-time friend Joy coming to spend the week with us. We got mani/pedis, massages, went shopping, ate ice cream and got all caught up on life. We were quite spoiled to have her here!
