The last two days have been... interesting. I have felt more crampy and "contraction-ish" than ever (if that's a word). I counted 5 Braxton Hicks contractions yesterday that weren't anything little. They each lasted about a minute, but were hours apart or at least very, VERY sporadic. It does seem like my body is going through some new changes though. My legs are crampy, though I haven't had any more major leg cramps, they just hurt. My hips... Heavens! My hips! I can only last about 30 minutes on each side before I feel as if my hip joint is about to cave through my pelvis. That, and this wonderful thing called pinched nerves that I get if I turn a certain way. Not fun! Also, the baby has had hiccups every day for the last 4 days. It's kinda funny, but at the same time, kind of annoying, because... everytime he bounces w/ a hiccup, he presses against either a bladder or pelvic bone. FUN!!
Anyways, so I'm 34 weeks today. I can't believe it!! Only 3 more weeks until I'm full term!! Things are getting pretty exciting around here in anticipation of lil' Shepherd's arrival. The crib is sitting in the nursery, waiting on a mattress (which hopefully after this weekend of showers, we'll have). The baby's closet is organized (or at least the crap is all hidden). I've washed a few clothes in anticipation, I've folded blankets, written a few thank-you notes, and tried to sort through all the junk that's in that room to see what we can give to Goodwill. Thankfully, my mom and dad are planning a trip up here one weekend to help us haul the load of Goodwill stuff out, and to try to arrange the nursery a little differently. I cannot WAIT!
Well, I'm going to go try to see if I can get my camera working again, and maybe... MAYBE... get a 34 week shot of my belly!
