Pregnancy Update: 6 more weeks to go!

How Far Along: I am now 34 weeks along. Only 6 weeks left. 6! That is a manageable number. And these next 6 weeks are busy busy so time is about to fly!

Weight Gain: Well...lets just say two appointments ago, my doctor used the phrase "your weight is creeping up there." I had eaten my face off the previous weekend. Since then I have watched what I have eaten and the last appointment I didn't gain any. Phew. 

How I am feeling: For the most part, I feel great. Being super gaggy is returning. Also, I am getting heartburn from simple things like water. I am tired all the time, and I am hot all the time. Just the usual pregnancy symptoms. I've noticed lately if I have gone a while without eating, I get really shaky and sick. At least I haven't thrown up for almost 3 months though!!!

Exercise: Again, mostly walking and yoga (although I had to return my yoga dvd to the library and haven't checked out another one yet) but I've also had more opportunities to swim, which makes me feel so light I love it, and I also have done a Zumba class. I was proud of that one. Even though a skinny lady told me I was huge and must have huge babies. Thanks.

Cravings: Besides slurpees, I have been craving sweets like no other. Especially this Oreo dessert pizza we had on the 4th at Pizza Pie Cafe. Also, Saturday night I was craving a hot dog from Reams. The sign said they closed at 7. We were there at 6:40 and they had closed up. I was a pretty upset pregnant girl. 

Hows Abby: She is doing so well. She went through a very frustrating phase of never eating, but this week she has been eating a ton (for Abby anyway.) She is also getting smarter and cuter and naughtier. 

Highlight of the past week: My BFF8 Mel came into town and we got together with other college best friends. It was so much fun. Oh how I miss these girls. We ate, laughed, gossiped, and just had fun. I will ever be grateful I went to SUU and made such wonderful friends! Also, Abby had a blast with Landon. They played so well together. It makes me wish they could always have play dates. 
Me, Tifanee, Mel, Erika, and Jess

What I am looking forward to: Abby's second birthday coming up in just 2 short weeks!! When did she get this old?
