34 Weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights

How far along? 34 Weeks!

Size of the baby? A 5 lbs, 20" long, Cantaloupe. Ultrasound tech confirmed today she IS in fact a 5lb-er

Maternity clothes? Yepper

Stretch marks? No new ones

Weight gained: 6lbs

Sleep: Some nights are better than others.

Best moment this/last week: I got to see Persephone via ultrasound today. She's measuring perfect and fluid is fine. My due date is still accurate. My BP was high though (170/90) so I have to go back Monday to check again :-/

Movement: All the time

Food cravings: I don't have any specifics, although the last few times we've gone to the grocery store, I end up grabbing a sweet of some sort.

Gender/Names: GIRL! Persephone Layne Jones!

Labor Signs: Still only a few Braxton Hicks over the last few weeks.

Belly Button in or out? Still in, but weird

Wedding rings on or off? On

What I miss: nada

What I am looking forward to: Only 6 weeks left...whoa whoa whoa.


  1. I always feel like other people's pregnancy go by SO quickly! But 9 months sounds like such a long time... are you happy it's almost over or are you enjoying being pregnant?

    1. I've really enjoyed my pregnancy actually. I haven't had anything to really gripe about and it's so amazing to feel this life you created move around in your belly :)
      But I'll be ready to meet her!!

  2. Be super careful with your BP. I had high with Brady too- just RELAX when you get home. Don't do anything. I'm serious. Don't clean, don't cook just take it easy. I bought a BP monitor and was taking it all the time and I was ALWAYS go go go and it would go way up the more I cleaned and ran around after Macy. I didn't really have a choice if Greg was out of town, but you have no excuse! Rest!
