34 week bumpdate

How far along? 34 weeks - 41 days to go or 6 weeks!
How big is the baby? Kendall is the size of an average CANTALOUPE.
At my u/s the tech said she is weighing in at 4lbs 14oz
approx length is 17.75" long
* the waxy protective coating, verniz, is becoming much thicker this week as the lanugo continues to shed and may be almost completely gone.  Her lungs are continuing to mature in preperation for breathing in the outside world.
Weight Gain/Loss: 24lbs (according to my dr appt on Monday)
* I might be feeling like I did in my first trimester (I will agree).  My body is going through physical strain, not to mention the overall discomfort of all the extra weight and difficulty sleeping.  As miss Kendall moves lower in the birth canal and exerts more pressure, I may get the sensation that she's going to fall out. (LOL) 
Maternity clothes? no.  Now that it's getting cooler Ive been wearing comfy sweats and Jason's shirts unless I have to go somewhere.
Stretch marks? nope
Sleep: Sleep has been ok, she must be moving down lower cause I've been having to pee a lot more and I can feel her moving around down lower. This past week I've been taking at least 2 naps a day cause I am just so tired. I'm ready for bed by 9:30 and I wake up around 12 and 3 to go pee.  I've also been having some pretty weird dreams, for instance the other night I was being chased by people and we were all riding on tricycles...
Best moment this week: being able to see my sweet girl on u/s & having her hospital bag totally packed!  Just waiting for what my mom made her to get here sometime next week.
Miss Anything? what don't I miss. I miss not being tired after just loading the girls up into the car, under boob sweating after being outside for 5 minutes, this little girl feeling like she's clawing her way out, taking 3 bites of dinner and feeling full, I mean my list could go on and on. If you couldn't tell I'm ready to be done....
Movement: LOTS & LOTS. A lot of rolling around and jabs that feel like they are down in my special place. Sometimes it feels like she's trying to claw her way out.
Anything making you queasy or sick: string cheese & my dogs farts!


Labor Signs: None.
Symptoms:  EXHAUSTED I feel like I'm back in the 1st trimester again with being so exhausted by the end of the day, who am I kidding I'm tired by nap time and have been taking naps when the girls take a nap.
Belly Button in or out? In the middle (its not really in but its not out)
Wedding rings on or off? On but might need to take them off at night cause my fingers get really tight.
Mood: good
Looking forward to: Ordering the girls big sister necklaces to give them from Kendall.  Spending as much quality family time together.
How the siblings are doing: the girls are still doing great. Kaylee missed her 1st day of school this year cause had a bad runny nose and cough.  Keira has all 4 of her canines just pop through and I think her 2 year molars are trying to work there way in as well.  Time to put the amber teething necklace back on!  They were super excited when I showed them the u/s pictures of Kendall

A fun little comparison of all 3 pregnancies at 34 weeks

U/S Update:

I had a dr appt on Monday 9.17.12 and the dr measured me and like every other appt I was measuring small.  Since I've measure consistantly small she ordered me an u/s to go make sure that Miss Kendall was growing right.  The nurse made me an appt for Wed morning bright and early at 8am.  I had to wake up the girls and drop them off at Grandma's and drive about 20 mins to my appt.  I haven't had to be up that early in a long time!!  So I got to my appt and they took me back right away.  The guy u/s tech was super nice and funny.  He explained everything he was doing as he was doing it and said that everything was measuring right on and little miss is perfect.  He said she has long legs, which she had right up by her face the whole time.  He switched it over to 3D a few times and it was so cute to see her.  Not sure who she looks like cause it was hard to see her with her hand in her front of her face or her leg.  But she is a cutie.  So everything checked out perfect with her.

I had to have these same u/s with Keira cause I was measuring small with her as well. 
At 33 weeks 5 days Kendall is weighing in at 4lbs 14oz
At 35 weeks Keira was weighing in at 5lbs 10oz

At birth Keira weighed 7lbs 1oz
So we'll see what Miss Kendall weighs when she's born.
I have my 34 week check up on Monday 9.24.12
