So I think I'm a little off track here. At 33 weeks and zero days I did the 33 week post. Meaning it was for the week ahead.
So now... 34 weeks is actually the past week...
Do you see what I mean?
My brain is all mixed up y'all. Which I guess makes more and more sense because Apparantly Brody's brain is doing quite the developing. He's stealing all my smarts. Or thoughts at least.
Pregnancy brain is a serious thing. It may sound funny and like an excuse but it's highly annoying to forget.... What was I saying?
Oh right. That I'm posting 34 weeks at the END of 34 weeks. Because I've lost track of how pregnant I am!
(I'll be 35 weeks on Tuesday that's insane.)
Also because it really makes more sense so I can accurately say about my symptoms and cravings and all that goodness.
Okayyyyyy so here we go.
Basically all the same as last week. Achey and uncomfortable everywhere. Once I get down in the ground (to you know. Organize my closet or go through boxes that need to be gone through at 34 weeks pregnant) it's close to impossible to get back up with out help. Although I haven't had help getting back
Up yet so I'm just assuming it would
Be easier. CONTRACTIONS. Y'all. Friday October 4th we went to a hockey game in Raleigh (that's about two hours north from us) and I drove us home. Welllll on the way home. At 1 o'clock in the am. When it's dark and foggy and my gps decides to not tell me to turn and I'm lost and frustrated and brads snoring in the passenger seat. My body decides to start having contractions. Like real ones you guys. Painful ones. And they seem really close. So I'm like brad. Brad. Brad. Wake up. I need you to time these. He didn't wake up. So on top of being lost and driving and all that I'm timing my contractions. And they are CLOSE I'm convinced I'm going into labor. Trying to remember how close they need to be for me to go to the hospital and doing the math of when we will get back home and if I have time to grab my hospital bag. So we get home finally at like 1:15 and I've been having them for the past hour like every two to three minutes or so. And I decide I'm going to get in the tub because maybe I just need to relax.
It helped. They stopped. And I went to bed.
Lol no but that was crazy. I was freaking out. So what else... My poor fingers are almost constantly numb. My ankles have been swollen to the size of oranges for the past week or so.
I'm planning to drink more water tomorrow.
Apples. Apples and peanut butter. If you haven't tried it. You have to. It's so good. You just sit down with apple slices and the jar of pb and spread a little on each bite. It's so good. I bet it would be delicious with crunchy pb too?
Bump town 👆👆👆👆👆 I'm feeling huge. And Brody lays awkwardly all the time. My belly button has popped out.
Hockey fans. Go wings. They killed it in the last period.
Dear baby bee,
This week you grew to the size of a large cantaloupe. 19-22 inches long and about 5.5 lbs. your brain is doing lots of developing and your storing up fat for when your born. I'm so excited to hold you. Not too much longer okay? Your Grammy robin thinks you'll be here next week. Who knows... You probably do. I've been so tired the past week. It's like your sucking all my energy. Because you seem to have a lot of it. Sorry that buddy keeps squishing you. He wants to be really really close to me today.
Lots of love
