34 weeks

Technically I'm 34 weeks and 2 days ... but who's counting?  Oh yeah ME!  At 40 days to go we're getting closer and closer to Baby C's arrival.
This week Baby Center says that baby is the size of a cantaloupe, weighing in at almost 5 pounds.  As baby gets bigger I continue to get bigger too. 
I'm finally over my cold from last week but have not found myself working out lately.  I had a good work out on Saturday, but have not been back since.  I'm looking forward to returning to the YMCA tomorrow during lunch and possibly even going to prenatal yoga tomorrow night.  I want to stay as active as possible until I absolutely can't exercise any more. 
Sleep gets harder and harder to do every night ... in between so many pee breaks and basically never being comfortable, it's impossible to get more than 2-3 hours of consecutive sleep.
I'm back on eating way too many bread products like I was during the 1st trimester.  For some reason Baby C craves bagels and English muffins way too often.  I'm trying to eat as many fruits and vegetables as I can, even if it means topping my sauteed spinach with crumbled bacon.  

Per yesterday's doctor's visit I'm 136 pounds and will have another doctor's appointment on the 27th.  I was a little disappointed that the doctor was on call and missed my appointment but I did get the usual blood pressure check and belly measurement.  Plus I got to listen to Baby C's heartbeat which is always my favorite part.

Here's hoping the next 6 weeks fly by without too much discomfort!
