Belly update - 34 weeks

I can't believe it but we're officially at 8.5 months or 34 weeks.  Time flies when you're having fun?

So what can I tell you about 34 weeks?  Peanut is now the size of a large cantaloupe or just over 5 lbs and 20 inches long.  On another note, this t-shirt used to fit me like a dress and fall just below my bottom.  What gives?

Oh right, Peanut.

Still no stretch marks (woo-hoo! Thanks mom and genetics!), but, as you can see, my belly button has a mind of its own and refuses to live where it's been comfortably living the past 27 years.  Additionally, Peanut is getting so big that it seems there is only enough room in my belly for one of us.  And I'm losing.

But she's way too cute, so I forgive her.  Even when she tries to stick her adorable little foot into my ribs or presses her big butt into my lungs.  Those moments are a little less fun.  But there are some pluses to the big belly.

For example, you have a small table with you at all times.  I've found it's rather helpful for just about anything - from snacks to full dinner plates.  I haven't been able to rest my drinks on it though - mostly because they're either too cold or too hot.  Peanut doesn't like that.

So there you have it.  We've reached 34 weeks.  Only 3 more until full term and just 6 until due date. YIKES.


  1. Great baby belly :) Before you know it you will be a mommy :)

  2. Oh, wow! So close! And you still seemingly are only carrying in the belly! Lucky duck!

  3. You are such a cute pregnant lady! Love the belly pics!

  4. Before I even read this I notice today how huge you have gotten. You are still as cute as before and just as fashionable. You should post some of your outfits from work on how to dress while pregnant. I have been very impressed!

  5. I can't believe only 3 more weeks until term!!! I'll be 34 weeks in a few days and it's so weird and cool to finally be this far along!!

    I am also running out of "loose" shirts. My shirts that used to hang on me like a sack are pretty snug in the belly now. I'm just hoping I have a few that fit me until the end!

    I think my biggest complaint at this point is my utter inability to take a deep breath depending on my position. I miss that! But she moves so much now and my whole belly moves with her. And that is just too much fun! So it's a fair trade! ;-)

  6. How cute are YOU?!?! You have showed us all how 1st time moms should do it!! (I gained 45 lbs with my first and barely resembled myself by the end!)

    You are so close to the end. I think the last 6-week stretch went by quickly for both of my babies so hopefully it will for you too!!
