Letter from Your Ma: 34 weeks

How far along?  34 weeks + 3 days.
Weight Gain?  You now weigh about 4 3/4 pounds and are almost 18 inches long. According to Baby Center, your central nervous system is maturing and your lungs are continuing to mature as well. Apparently babies born between 34 and 37 weeks who have no other health problems generally do fine!  Way to go!
Symptoms?  I’m still tired, but had a shot of energy this week which resulted in my hanging artwork in the nursery AND packing a hospital bag.
Sleep?  Same as always.
Foods I am loving?  Mostly sweets.  My diet is not ideal.  I am still taking pre-natal vitamins however, so you should be getting all that you need.
Best moment this week?  Breckenridge Baby Moon!  Your dad and I stayed in a resort that was nearly empty. Hooray off-season.  I went swimming, hiking and relaxed in a jacuzzi.  It was a really nice trip.  You’ll be taking your first trip to Breck after Christmas.
Movement?  Still wiggly as ever.  It will be strange NOT carrying you around.
What I miss?    Remembering a time when I wasn’t pregnant.
What we’ve been up to:    Buying more baby supplies mainly.  You now have a couple bottles and a monitor so I can spy on you.  Ollie is finishing up his training.  He’s doing so well walking beside the stroller.  In other news, we are now the crazy neighbors who are walking an invisible baby in a stroller around the block.
