Bumpdate: 34 Weeks

Happy Friday ladies! Another week down, putting us that much closer to meeting our little guy. I am still hoping he doesn't come any sooner than he needs to, though. While I found myself secretly hoping for a earlier rather than late delivery the first time around, this time I really would be content if this guy stayed in all the way up through his due date! Being uncomfortable a little bit longer will be totally worth it if it means being able to move into our new house while I am still on maternity leave! I am linking up with my favorite ladies today for some Friday fun, check out the links at the bottom of this post for more info!
Kimono (sold out, similar here)// Top // Tank // Leggings

How far along? 34 Weeks
Gender: Baby boy
Total weight gain: 27-28 pounds.
Maternity clothes? Mostly still getting by with these tank tops, these leggings, and these sweaters. These cold and wet past few weeks need to end so I can get comfortable in my dresses and skirts!!
Stretch marks? Not yet.
Belly button in or out: Pretty darn flat. Depending on the day, the top part is just barely starting to stick out..so weird!
Sleep: Still not so great. And still thanks to my first child. Will I ever sleep again!?
Exercise: Yes. Still squeezing in runs or walks about 3 days a week. Definitely have modified my runs though, cutting back from 3 miles to more like 2, and walking as much as I can to substitute. Also, still going strong with my arm workouts, let's see if I can get those babies toned up in time for tank top season!
Best moment this week: Getting our home appraisal back and setting a closing date! We will officially be starting construction SOOO soon!
Miss Anything? Breathing normally. Sleeping comfortably on my back. Just feeling normal, I hate feeling 'limited' and unable to do things physically!
Movement: Lots, as always up under my right ribs. I spend a lot of time pushing little knees and feet back in and away from my ribcage.
Food cravings: This week, I have been all about the Fruity Pebbles! I could literally put down an entire box in one serving, however I have refrained from doing so. As always, nothing beats a cold, fizzy Diet Coke.
Symptoms: Lower back pain and pelvic pressure. New in the last week or so, for the first time in either of my pregnancies, I have been getting very lightheaded when lying flat on my back. Since it has never been an issue I seriously don't even think about it, until all of the sudden I just feel funny and realize I definitely need to reposition to one of my sides.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Labor Signs: No. I was checked at my appointment this week, baby is still high and no dilation happening yet at all, which is good to hear. While I am pretty over being pregnant, with our whole moving situation, I want this little guy to stay put as long as possible!
Wedding rings on or off? On, from what I can tell I don't have too much swelling happening.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Just kind of 'eh' this week. It is April, it has been wet and cold and even a little snowy, and I am just ready for some sunshine and enjoying being outside! 
Looking Forward To: I know it should be all about the baby in this section, but let's be real, we are about to start building our house! I am pretty sure I am going to cry when I first see the hole being dug.

    1. Aw thank you! I enjoy the bump but am also ready to trade it in for a baby :-) Fortunately even if my belly button pops in the final weeks I don't think I'll ever have the major 'sticking out'..so I won't complain!
