Cameron Bumpdate: 34 weeks!

How far along: 34 weeks - 6 weeks left to go! Found out yesterday they are not moving my due date up, even though Cameron has been measuring consistently ahead. We are going to let him come when he's ready!

Baby is the size of a: GIANT BABY! Cameron is roughly 5 lbs 14 oz currently, according to my last ultrasound yesterday. That size makes me feel like we won't make it all the way until his due date... but what do I know!!!

Sleep: I'm still sleeping between 7-8 hours a night, just not feeling well rested most of the time. If I'm being completely honest, my mind wonders more than I should allow it to when I'm trying to fall back asleep after I get up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night.

Total Weight Gain: 24 lbs
Stretch Marks:  None yet.

Innie or Outie:  Innie for life!!!

Symptoms:  I get out of breath so easily. My lips and face are very dry too. Other than normal little aches and pains by the end of the day, I'm not struggling too much. Some days feel hard and I feel like I've gained 50 lbs and want to cry over everything, but there are really good normal days too. Such is life in the emotional roller coaster of the 3rd trimester! :)
Movement: He is finally head down! His feet are still facing the left side of my ribs and I still get kicked QUITE A BIT right there! He was moving all around showing off during our last ultrasound yesterday. Movement = healthy baby so I am happy with that! I know I will miss this feeling!

Miss anything?:  My normal hormone levels. I've been all kinds of emotional the past couple of weeks. I hate crying over the smallest things, then feeling silly after.
Maternity Clothes: Full force maternity clothes. Finally found a pair of jeans. No longer wearing pants with buttons.
Go-to eats: Not really having any cravings right now. Eating full meals makes me uncomfortable because there's no room for food in my belly. I do still have a sweet tooth though. I'll be surprised if I make it out of this pregnancy without any cavities.

Best moment of the week: Seeing my sweet baby boy's face again after 10 looooong weeks. He looks more like his daddy every time we get to see him. If you can look at this picture without obsessing over his lips and cheeks then you are far stronger than I am. I have probably obsessed over these pictures a million times in the past couple of days.

Gender: Confirmed by ultrasound for the final time that we are having a baby boy!

What I’m looking forward to: I'm getting a prenatal massage next week and I could not be more excited!!!!!!!! My back really feels the pressure of my large baby and this extra weight by the end of the day so I am looking forward to some much needed pampering here at the end.

Milestones: Weekly doctor appointments until he decides to make his appearance in this world!

You can follow me on Instagram for updates as we get closer to our due date! I doubt I'll be blogging after he gets here and while I'm on maternity leave. I hope once I'm back at work I'll try to post updates though.

When I was pregnant with Henry prenatal massages were my jam! Hope you enjoy yours! He measured ahead the whole time and ended up coming a full month early. They know what they want!
