34 Weeks Pregnant {Average Cantaloupe}

Oh, my little baby cantaloupe…we’ve made it to our 34th week together, and what an exhausting and exciting week it was! (Sorry for this super late posting.  Week 34 came to an end on Friday, March 9th.  We’ve been crazy busy!)

(Average measurements: 17.75 inches, 4.75 pounds)

  • We went sailing…garage sailing!  We found what we were looking for: sofas.  They were COVERED in dog hair.  Thank you, Mom, for spending hours vacuuming and removing it all…and then having them professionally steam cleaned!  2 sofas for $75 (total) was a great deal at the time of purchase.  We didn’t consider the work and $ it would cost to make them house worthy.  Lesson learned, but at least we have our sofas.  They’re nothing fancy, but will do for now until we save up for something we love.

  • We met with the owner of the house and signed the lease papers and were handed our very first key to our “new” (rented) home!
  • Dominic bought a bunch of wood from Home Depot to build shelves in the garage.
  • We started moving our things into the house, with the help of my parents.  We had 3 cars full of furniture and boxes and Dom’s trailer and truck full of his stuff.  The trailer blew a tire on the freeway on the way to the house.  Luckily, his friends were available to go rescue him with a new tire.  My mom and I spent a few hours lining the kitchen drawers/cabinets and hallway cabinets with Con-Tact decorative paper.  It’s tougher than it sounds. Measuring, cutting, and fitting them in just right takes major time, especially when you have as many drawers and cabinets as we do.  Dominic began building the garage shelves, with the help of some friends and our future roommate.

  • Dominic, Roxi and Mikey (future roommate) took their first jump into the pool after working all day.  Cold.


  • Dominic assembled our glider (courtesy of Dom’s mom) for the baby’s room.  It’s so comfy and I love it.




  • I had yet another major heartburn attack.  Curse you, pizza and salad!  I even used ranch dressing this time, instead of Italian.  I was in pain until around 1am.
  • I turned 29!  Honestly, if my birthday wasn’t written in my organizer…I would have forgotten it.  We’ve been SO busy with moving that I haven’t given it a second thought.  My mom made me eggs in the morning.  I got to work and was surprised by some pretty amazing co-workers with balloons, flowers, a Mumford and Sons CD, a coffe and a chai tea latte from Starbuck’s, and red velvet cupcakes!  I also brought a dozen donuts for my co-workers to celebrate.  Later, I was treated to lunch from Panera.  Thank you Kasia, Nichole, Victoria, Jillian, Ania and Eunice!  I finished my birthday with a trip to Home Depotto buy the paint for Mia’s room (which I love and can’t wait to paint!) and our 4th Lamaze/birthing class.

    My co-workers are cooler than yours! :)

My phone’s BabyBump app says, “The waxy protective coating, vernix, is becoming much thicker this week as teh lanugo continues to shed and my be almost completely gone by now.  Inside your baby, the lungs are continuing to mature in preparation for breathing in the outside world.  You might be feeling just like you did your first trimester, tired and exhausted.  Your body is going through significant physical strain, not to mention the overall discomfort from all that extra weight and difficulty sleeping are taking their toll.  As your baby moves lower in the birth canal and exerts more pressure, some women have an uncomfortable sensation that the baby is about to fall out.  Other women feel a prickling or tingling sensation in the pelvic area, also common and not something to worry about.  These feelings may not go away until after you deliver.  If you have concerns, talk to your medical practitioner.
