34 weeks with Cheney

How far along?: 34 weeks--only FIVE weeks to go! ahh!!

How big is your baby?: the size of a pineapple. I believe it. This girl is running out of room in my stomach.
Total weight gain: up 16lbs total

Sex: sweet baby GIRL--Cheney Katherine
Maternity clothes: I wear real-ish clothes outside but strip down to comfy shorts and tanks as soon we come inside. It is SO HOT and that maternity panel on my clothes is not my friend.  I can't wait to be in regular clothes again!
  Sleep: On the Griffin end? SO MUCH BETTER.  He is finally back to sleeping through the night. He's waking up at the crack of dawn (5:15ish) but we are working on that.  I am having to get up at least once a night to go to the bathroom & sometimes I can't fall back asleep. I loathe pregnancy insomnia.
Symptoms: lower back pain. I don't remember having that with either of our boys. 
Movement: I suddenly feel like there is an alien inside. Cheney's movements are crazy! I can see a lot of it from the outside and I can feel certain limbs when they poke out. It's so crazy.
Best moment this week: The armoire is officially finished & has glass knobs! I also got the monogram painted pink & we just need to hang it. Curtains were hung by the handy husband, too! Nursery is coming right along! 
Food cravings: GIVE ME ALL THE WATERMELON. But, seriously. I am averaging about three whole watermelons a week. It is a little out of control.

Belly button in or out: almost out...but not quite. This is my longest stretch during a pregnancy without a belly button sticking out!
Labor Signs: She feels consistently lower each week. I am starting to feel pressure down there like I did with Griff. Also having lots of Braxton Hicks contractions. I'm sure those are from chasing these busy boys around all day!
What I miss: regular clothes!!!
What I'm looking forward to: Finishing the nursery!
