How far? 34 weeks and a couple of days :P
Weight Gain? A whopping 21 lbs already!! That was my total weight gain with Jackson's pregnancy, guess I am surpassing that one with 6 more weeks to go!
How am I feeling? Decently well. I still sleep pretty well but get fairly tired during the day. Especially with Jackson being cooped in the house all day. The humidity is unbearable here with a steady 92 degrees. It just isn't practical to be outside playing, even in the kiddie pool in this heat.
Labor Signs? Still having several Braxton Hicks each day. Nothing painful, although I am getting a bit of dull back pain when they occur.
Doctor says that Jaelyn is still head down (as been since 30 weeks), so measuring 33 cms at 34 weeks could be explained by her having dropped down a little. I carried Jax at -1 for the last month (thanks to the exercise ball) and wouldn't mind that again :) Made pushing during delivery go faster.
Last week Jackson was struck with Roseola. We didn't know that was the fever culprit until the 103 fever broke after 3.5 days and that terrible rash delevoped all over his body. The fever subsided on Thursday morning and we kept with our original plans to have him visit my parents for a few nights. This sickness effected him the most out of anything he's encountered so far. He was all out of sorts for quite along time after the rash started to dissipate. He was extremely needy, short tempered and demanding, didn't know what he wanted and fussed repeatedly (all of this began after the fever passed). My parents were a huge help in returning to me the little boy I used to know. It was a trying week last week. Now he has another Eye Tooth coming in and that has brought forth a truck load of diarreah that won't quit! I would love to take him to the local outdoor pool - but not with that I won't! Hopefully that will eleviate soon. Until then - no milk (which he's been off for over a week now anyways), no raw fruits (his favorite), no yogurt (another favorite) and just pounding as much Pedialyte as he will tolerate. Poor little man really wants his milk back!
We are going to finally get all of the wall decor up in the nursery tonight so I can NOT wait to post Jaelyn's finished room. I am just waiting on the her crib mattress which I had to order from Babies R Us. I have all the other projects finished!! I believe I have exhausted my sewing machine :)
Stay tuned, can't wait to show you!!
