34 Week Bumpdate

How Far Along: 34 Weeks 
Due Date: 7.7.14
Gender: BOY!
Names: Liam Mason 
Movement:  Liam seems to be getting more and more active as the weeks pass. I have started to feel him squirming around in there while at work and more while at home.

Size: Cantaloupe
Weight Gain: I have gained about 8lbs on my pre-pregnancy weight.

Maternity Clothes: I have been in maternity pants for awhile now, basically since the start of  2nd trimester. I need to find some nice maternity shorts and a few more tank tops....
Symptoms:  I am experiencing hip pain while sleeping, having to get up at least twice during the middle of the night to use the bathroom... My arms "falling asleep" aka numb while sleeping.

Cravings: Nothing 
Sleep: It is taking me a little longer to fall back to sleep after I get up in the middle of the night for a bathroom visit.  I also am finding that I want to sleep in more and more in the morning. I have also been going out to sleep on the couch in the middle of the night.
Stretch Marks: Already had them 
My Overall Health: Besides getting tired more easily I feel fine. I started my "NEW" work schedule this week. Which for the most part is working 9 - 5:30.

What I miss: Sleeping like the dead and not having to get up in the middle of the night several times to visit the bathroom.  Tying my own shoes from a standing position.

Wedding Rings On or Off?:  On and loose.

Belly Button: In

 Best Moment:  

The Baby Shower.
Dan and I want to thank everyone who made the baby shower possible and for everything we received from the bottoms of our hearts.
Baby Bump Cake (Made by Amanda Anderson. Check out her Blog and other cakes she has done HERE)

We also got to tour The Birthing Center and Mother/Child Ward at Fletcher Allen Health Care.  This allowed us to have some of our questions answered and to get the lay of the land so we know where we will be going when Liam decides to arrive.


  1. You are getting super close! I love that belly cake! Too cute.

  2. Ah, getting so close! I love how (relatively) easy it's all gone so far- no weight spikes, or hormone craziness, or hair falling out, or odd cravings. Just an active little boy cooking away.
