34 weeks

With just over a month till our little man is due our excitement is growing each day. Here are some things that have been going on in my 8th month of pregnancy.

I am starting to feel like there is no more room for this baby to grow. I am stretched to my limit which in turns means I am constantly uncomfortable. Sitting and laying just aren't my favorite things to do.

Austin likes when the little guy is, as I say, acting a fool in my tummy. He will come over real close to him and say things like " Mason! This is your dad, kick if you like me more than mommy." or "kick if you want mom to go bake us a cake" or my favorite "kick if you think mommy is stinky and needs to go shower" (this is typical Austin)

I have gained a total of 9 pounds which puts me at a big 120 lbs!

Silly songs on the radio make me cry for no reason other than I am pregnant. Lyrics that get me every time include
"won't he be a sight to see with his football helmet on, this will be his first love till his first love comes along"

"doctor says the baby's fine but you'll have to leave, his momma's fading fast...."

"...I won't be there to see the birth of our little girl. I hope she looks like you, I hope she fights like me...."

My tummy is constantly lop sided, hard and doing the worm. I love it, little movements keep me assured he is okay.

I can't even look at a glass of water without having to pee.

That is pretty much the low down with my pregnancy right now


  1. Soooo close!!! and if songs make you cry now you. just. wait! those postpartum hormones made me a hot mess and i cried all the time over the silliest songs!!!

  2. Love this post! Although your weight "gain" total makes me want to not talk to you again. :) I have been crying at everything too, and reading about a glass of water making you have to pee sent me to the bathroom. Getting closer! Glad you are enjoying your pregnancy...even amidst the not so fun stuff.


I love to hear your thoughts about my post!
