34 Weeks

I'm getting really bad at this blogging thing....I'm so sorry that I haven't given you guys an update in two weeks!!!  As you can imagine, life is getting pretty hectic around our house gearing up for Morgan's arrival.  Not to mention I'm trying to prep at work for my maternity leave - and then throw into the mix that Samantha needs to have her tonsils out (and preferrably in the next month!) - I don't know I'm managing at this point!!!

But, here is my 34 week update - thankfully, it's not late :)

Total Weight Gain/Loss:  28lb - only 1lb gain in two weeks!  Not bad considering my doctor chastised me at my last appointment for my weight gain :(

Maternity Clothes:  Yes!  Thanks to my good friend Clara, I might have enough clothes to make it another month!

Gender:  Another beautiful baby girl!!!  Miss Morgan Elizabeth


Movement:   Yes, and loving every single one!

Sleep:  I have officially given up on sleeping through the night until Morgan is several months old.  It just never fails - between 1:30am and 4am I WILL be up for a bathroom break.  It's inevitable.

What I Miss:  Being able to bend over and pick things up with ease...

Symptoms:  Here lately my biggest problem has been sciatica - I love this little baby but she is literally a pain in my rear end these days!!!  If I can lay down I can get the pressure off that nerve and get some relief, but with work and then keeping up with Samantha - who can lay down all day???!!!

Best Moment(s) the past two weeks:  I had two baby showers in the past two weeks - one hosted by my sister and mom and another one that was a surprise at work.  We got SO MUCH stuff for Miss Morgan!  She is so blessed to have so many people that love and care for her so much already, and we are so appreciative to everyone for everything!!! :)

Worst Moment the past two weeks:   Thankfully, we've had a very uneventful past two weeks so nothing to report here!

Favorite Husband Moment:  Owen has taken to rubbing my tummy - I guess it's starting to hit him too that we're about to be a family of 4 pretty soon!!!
