34 Weeks - Butternut Squash

Charlie gets stars on his star chart for trying new foods. He's been hung up on trying squash for a while now, maybe we should try to incorporate that into our weekly menu.

Yes, I'm late this week.  Yesterday it was 80+ degrees out, so I went to the park instead of writing a blog post. Sue me.

How far along: 34 weeks. Not far enough. I'm impatient and anxious and uncomfortable. Moreso than last time, I think. I know that I'm bigger than I was with Charlie because at my Monday appointment they said that she was "measuring right on track," and that's not something I'd ever been told with Charlie - that belly was always a few weeks behind. I hope that doesn't mean I'm going to have a huge baby. According to The Bump, baby can now recognize songs that I sing and might be soothed by them when she's on the outside. This was actually true with Charlie, and his favorite song was "In My Life" by The Beatles. Guess maybe I should switch to something other than 99 Problems?

Total weight gain: I think it's 27. I guess I'm keeping pace with that "pound a week" thing.

Sleep: I actually had two decent nights of sleep. Then we skipped right from winter to summer and it's really freaking hot in my room.

Exercise: I had a horrible run on Saturday. HORRIBLE. As in, I quit 2.5 miles in. I've never done that before. Thankfully, I had a good run yesterday morning, so I haven't given up completely. Giving it one last shot this weekend before I throw in the towel and drop to the Half Pig.

Movement: Regularly. Both Charlies get freaked out by watching it, which I think is hilarious. The younger Charlie always wants to hug his sister and feel her feet, but he wasn't a fan of the hiccups. He also enjoys it when I put things on my belly and she kicks them off.

Food cravings: Pizza and beer.

Happy or moody most of the time: Both. Because I said so.

Looking forward to: Managed to get all of the Velcro tabs off the old diapers. Holy hell was that a pain in the ass. Still trying to convince the husband that I really don't need to be driving to visit out-of-town family and sleep on an air mattress at 35 weeks pregnant. If he sees the light, I plan to sew on the new Velcro tabs and make my ring sling this weekend.

    I would say you should not have to sleep on an air mattress.
