How far along: 34 weeks and 1 day in the pics.
How big is baby Jaden? About 5lbs...He responds as a newborn with his eyes open while awake and closed while sleeping. He is developing immunities to fight mild infection. His little fingernails are at the ends of the fingertips already.
Weight gain: Holding steady at 31 lbs
Maternity clothes: Yes! The belly likes to poke out of the regular tops I bought and I'm still too small for most maternity shirts...the ones I have anyway. Sort of poses a problem ;)
Sleep: I wake several times a night for potty breaks...sometimes the heartburn keeps me up...sometimes it's just insomnia. I assume it's my body practicing for those all nighters when baby J doesn't want to sleep.
Best moment of the week: Seeing Josh's face when he sees just how active this little stinker is now! Sometimes it looks like an alien is trying to escape!! Of course as soon as we try to get it on tape, he stops...he's on to us! Josh keeps saying it looks like he's trying to get out!
Movement: Very much! :) Love every moment of it...even the jabs and kicks to the ribs! It's crazy to watch my stomach move up and down ... side to side...this kid likes to boogy!
Foods I love hate: About the same...sadly so much gives me heartburn that I don't really get to enjoy food these days. It's all well worth it, but I sure won't be missing the heartburn!!
Morning Sickness: Not often...just in the morning if I'm hungry. Mostly at this point I'm dealing with cramping (Braxton Hicks), swelling/achy feet...sore pelvis/back. Pretty much just the typical end of pregnancy discomforts. But hey...we're getting close, so I guess it's to be expected.
