34 weeks


How far along? 34 weeks

Maternity clothes? yes 

Sleep: i sleep fine, i just wake up to go to the bathroom or because i'm uncomfortable ... and then sometimes it takes me a while to fall back asleep - my body is practicing for the future ;)

Best moment this week: my coworkers had a nice baby shower for me, it was really great! also adding more finishing touches to his room - it's SO CLOSE to being done (yes i'll share some pics when it's finished)! i packed his bag (which doesn't contain much) ... thinking about doing that for myself. haha :)  AND dr awesome said i don't need to come back before he's born, because my next appointment would be a few days before i get induced (and ya know, i'm doing so well with blood sugars. boom.)! AAAHHH!! 

and my sorority sister took a couple pictures of us a few weeks ago that she sent me, love them! 




Miss anything? an adult beverage  << yep. that.

Movement: almost always. on today's ultrasound it was confirmed that yes, he does keep his feet up under my right rib cage (i definitely have confirmed that without an ultrasound) ... and he likes to keep his legs straight out. SO COMFY!! ;) i envision him kicking those legs out of swaddles.  

Food cravings: no, nothing sounds that great. food is not appealing. blah. food.

Anything making you queasy or sick: not really

Gender: boy

Labor signs: braxton hicks, a few 'real' contractions but nothing to worry or get excited about (yes, talked to my OB about it)

Symptoms: yup, still all of these >>> growing heavy belly, sore back, sore hips, waddling, restless legs and arms

Belly button in or out? it's flat

Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or moody most of the time: pretty happy  

Blood sugar: still doing well! A1c stayed the same :) 

Looking forward to: meeting our guy and everyone else getting to meet him!! and ya know, this is the best time of year - thanksgiving, christmas ... SO EXCITED!

the final stretch

when you're type 1 and pregnant, you get some extra attention ... from doctors.

of course i've been seeing dr. awesome monthly, and my OB monthly - but now, i'll be seeing her much more frequently. 

starting this week, i go to the OB twice a week for the duration of my pregnancy (something i thought would start at week 34). at the beginning of the week, i have an ultrasound followed by a quick check-in with a doctor or nurse practitioner. later in the week, i go in for a non-stress test (NST) followed by another check-in. 

i have a feeling these weeks are going to fly by. unless he (or my OB) decides otherwise, i'll be induced on december 18, to deliver on the 19th. i have a feeling it will be before then, but of course i could be totally off. as long as he stays where he is until december 10, i'll take him when he's ready. :) (i'll be 37 weeks on 12/10 ... before 37 weeks babies have to go to the NICU and i want no part of that!) 

perk = weekly pictures of our little guy. and feeling pretty safe and closely watched! 

here's to the next six weeks...
