Pregnancy (and bump) Update

Well, the bump's been growing!  I'm 34.5 weeks today, and I really can't imagine getting much bigger than I am now!  Besides not being able to touch my toes, and having downright sweat sessions when I try to pull on/off my boots, I'm feeling great!  My hospital bag is slowly but surely getting packed, and I just started cleaning out my freezer this week in preparation for some major meal planning for when baby gets here.

Here's my little pregnancy update:

How far along? 34.5 weeks...the countdown is on!  Time is flying! Due date is still Christmas Eve!
Baby Size: Baby is the size of a cantaloupe - although he is measuring just a little small  ;)
Total weight gain/loss: oh my heavens, a lot.  I've gained about 35 lbs!  Eeeeek.
Maternity clothes? I live in my target maternity jeans, tanks, and big cozy cardigans.  
Stretch marks? Nope! Fingers crossed they don't come.
Sleep: Sleeping pretty well!  Tossing and turning a bit, and getting up just once around 5am to pee!
Best moment this week: This week had some ups and downs, but we had a great fetal heart rate monitor test - baby boy was perfect and very active!
Miss Anything? Sushi, and margaritas!  And my entire colored skinny jeans collection :( Hopefully they'll still be in style next fall!
Movement: Feeling tons of movement, and he has the hiccups multiple times a day!
Food cravings: No major cravings, I eat omelets a lot, and I've been loving break and bake cookies!
Anything making you queasy or sick: I definitely have heart burn after spicy foods, so I've been staying clear of that. No nausea since week 14!
Have you started to show yet: Oh. Yes.
Gender: BOY!!!
Labor Signs: Nope.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? They are off - it's just more comfortable that way. 
Mood? So thankful, excited!
Looking forward to:  Meeting our precious boy!  I can't wait to see what he looks like :)

A few of my belly shots from the past month :)

Thanks for all the love and sweet comments as my pregnancy continues - this has been the best 9 months of my life, and I know it's going to get SO much sweeter soon!

You look great!! He will be here so soon and it's amazing how big our bellys stretch for a baby. Oh and don't worry I topped the scales around 40lbs and I've lost all but about 2lbs so don't stress!

You look great, Emily! Just clicked on your blog from FB and read a few posts, it had been a while! Love the gift ideas. And don't worry about the weight gain. I came very close to the # in the hundreds place changing (ie, almost weighed 200lbs!) when I delivered all 3. I am almost back to normal and I haven't even really kicked it into high gear in terms of dieting yet. You'll bounce back. And even if it takes a while, it's sooooooooooo worth it! You will be totally in love all over again. Heading to Pensacola(fam has a beach house there) for Thanksgiving and will think of you.
