34 weeks

Sunday, March 20th 2011 - 34 WEEKS!

And so the countdown begins. THIS was the week I really started to feel it. My belly is officially uncomfortable. It's no longer soft either, but firm and full to the brim of baby boy. Putting on my own shoes takes a lot of effort and leaves me breathing heavy. I have to raise my arms and put my hands behind my head to make room for my lungs to get a good, deep breath. I can see the pregnancy in the swelling of my face, bleh. But I'm feeling proud of myself, because all of these symptoms came on a lot earlier in my pregnancy with Wendy, due to the fact that I didn't take any steps (no pun intended) to monitor my weight gain the first time around. I'm still walking every day, but I think I'm done with things like Disneyland trips until after the baby. I'm down to weekly visits to the doctor instead :)

Pregnancy #2 - Fun Facts:

  • Harvey is born a 6 month old girl
  • Ryan is cheating on me
  • I can stretch the skin on my belly & see my baby's face as clearly as if a balloon has been stretched over it. Everyone around me is grossed out, but I love it.
  • I end up giving birth to SIX boys, but get sent home with 6 plastic baby dolls to take care of while they get bigger in the NICU

You look fantastic! You always have such great photos too. One of the perks of being related to several photographers? :) Your nightmares are awful. I'm sorry. I had weird, creepy pregnancy dreams too. I one my baby started growing backwards (like back into an embryo) in the nursery while I watched through the window. Yikes. Anyway, hope the last 6 weeks speed on by for you!

You're such a cutie! who else is so photogenic even when they're pregnant?

J said...

I agree with Shannon. You ALWAYS look good in any photo!! So cute. I feel like this pregnancy is like a "starter-pregnancy" for me as well. Not doing too bad, but feel like the next one I'll handle things better! :)

Cute picture! I love the rain drops on your tummy.

I had the silliest dreams when I was expecting. The only ones that upset me were the many I had of your dad cheating on me. Funny that you are having the same nightmare.

I can't believe we are only 4 weeks away from meeting little Harvey!

OK- the dreams totally made me laugh out loud and that's bad since everyone in my house is asleep. The doll one is especially awesome.
