34 Weeks Pregnant

33 weeks pregnantAs I write this, I am dealing with some contractions. Fake ones…I think. It’s been happening a lot recently. Every so often, I get the tight feeling, the pressure, and the overall discomfort. It makes for an interesting walk, actually. I suppose my body is preparing for what’s to come.

We’re only a few weeks away from being the parents of two children! And, by a few weeks, I mean anywhere from 3 to 5 weeks. I’m now 34 weeks pregnant and a healthy full-term baby could come our way at 37 weeks. Our c-section, though, won’t be scheduled until 39 weeks. So, at this point, it’s a guessing game.

I still can’t believe how fast this pregnancy went! It seems like just the other day, I shared with you that I was pregnant. But, it’s been a busy past few months, which has helped time pass. Now, I’m on super-slow mode.

Remember how I said I was feeling useless? Well, that hasn’t entirely gone away, but I’m coming to terms with it. There’s only so much I can do at this point without my over-bulging belly taking over and screaming out to me, “Stop!” in the form of various pains. Our family has adjusted and I’ve found ways to get around it.

Truthfully, now, I’m really looking forward to seeing this baby boy and welcoming him to our family. His personality remains to be seen, but I’ve got a feeling he’ll be making himself known – he already does from within the belly. This is something that pleases his daddy and every time I tell our baby to “calm down, you’re hurting mami,” my husband just smiles away.

By the way, though I laughed it off, it’s never nice to say “Man! You’re HUGE!” to a very pregnant lady. Keep that in mind, ok? (The husband didn’t say this. He knows better.)

Dealing with Braxton Hicks? Drink More Water!


Exactly one week ago, I began to get cramps, pains, and overall discomfort. I have been dealing with Braxton Hicks contractions for a few weeks now, something that took some getting used to since I didn’t really experience them with my first pregnancy. But, these pains were different. They were happening more often and hanging […]

More Relaxed the Second Pregnancy?


I always heard that on your second pregnancy, and those thereafter, you tend to be way more relaxed. That is, you’re not stressing every little detail of your pregnancy or the baby. You’re not as paranoid and things don’t have to be “perfect.” I find myself in that situation. I am now 24 weeks pregnant […]

Win a Baby Carrier for your Baby!


With our first child, we never got around to buying a baby carrier. Which is strange, because we carried her quite a bit. So much so, that the older relatives would often give us the “if you carry her too much, she’ll get spoiled” speech. But, of course, she isn’t and we enjoyed carrying and […]

Oh Pollen…How I Hate You


Oh my God people. I need some help. I’ve been having a horrible case of allergies this past week. Sneezing, watery/itchy eyes, scratchy throat…you name it. I’m sure many of you have been dealing with it as well as I’ve seen just about everyone I know complaining about how bad this allergy season is so […]
