I make lots of noises...

The bigger my belly gets, the more I notice the noises I make. Getting in the car (grunt), attempting to take off pants (lots of grunting and heavy breathing), putting on lotion, tying shoes (yea right, like that's actually happening!), get in/out of bed...basically anything that requires movement also has a noise associated with it. I could have my own soundtrack. It's a shame, really...but apparently amusing to my children & husband. Whatevs.

Yep, that's me.
I've resolved to wearing nothing but dresses these days; makes things a lot easier. Well except for the fact that dresses usually require me to shave my legs.....that's a whole 'nother story.

Anywho, we are now 34 weeks along (41 days left!). I'm feeling pretty good for the most part. I had a horrible cramp in my calf the other night (woke me from my sleep) and I almost beat Kevin over the head from the pain. Not cool. (the cramp, not the beating Kevin part...he'll be alright). Apparently Charley horses are common in pregnancy and I remember having one with the last pregnancy, but that doesn't mean I'm used to it. That shit hurts.
Miss B seems to like stretching out and chillin' under my ribs. Also not cool. She's very active EXCEPT for when her mom & dad are around. What's up with that??
I'm excited for our next appointment so that we can see how big she is! Any guesses? Here's what the trusty ol' internet says her estimated size is:
Week 34 baby fetus size celery
Baby is about the size of celery during week 34.

LENGTH: 18.12 in
WEIGHT: 4.82 lb

We'll be 1 day shy of 35 weeks at the appointment though, so here's the stats for week 35, for comparison:
Week 35 baby fetus size romaine lettuce
Baby is about the size of romaine lettuce during week 35.

LENGTH: 18.64 in
WEIGHT: 5.33 lb

I'm gonna go between and guess 5.1 lbs; 18.5 in long.

Maybe you need a belly pic to help you decide (If you base it off of this, then she's definitely 10lbs... )
And here's my 33 week belly, since I didn't post last week:

I'll let cha know how it goes! TTYL.
