Almost Ready - 34 Weeks Baby #4

Another two weeks have gone by already!  I took an un-intentional blog break over the last week and a half, and it was a good break - allowed me time to get things under control before this little girl arrives!

I am now 34 weeks in this pregnancy, and Baby Girl definitely seems to be growing.  Her kicks and movements are much stronger.  As far as I can tell, she has stayed head-down, and her movements are so much more fun now there her feet are higher!  I can feel little limbs and her bum through my belly, and she seems to have gotten a little braver and is interacting with my poking and prodding a little more.

I am feeling good in general, though these last couple weeks have been hard because I am just so tired.  By the evening I am usually exhausted.  I think maybe I need to snack a bit more in the afternoon, because I usually feel better after I eat dinner, but that stretch when I am getting the kids fed and ready for bed is tough.

I have also had so many contractions the past few weeks, including some painful cramp-like contractions, which I never had with the others until the day I went into labor.  It is freaking me out a little bit, but usually is gone by the next day.  It makes me wonder if she is going to come early, but I think it's more likely my uterus is just tired after four pregnancies in five years. We shall see!  I am kind of expecting that we will have a baby by the time I reach 39 weeks, because that seems to be my pattern, but we'll see what happens.  I am packing my hospital bag this week, just in case.

I finally finished the quilt, and I am going to hopefully take some pictures of the baby's corner so I can show you all!  It turned out pretty cute, and it is a relief to me to have everything mostly ready for her!  Just a little deep cleaning is in order, and I need to buy some new bottles and pacifiers, and then we are set.  We also took some maternity pictures last week - I have seen a sneak peek, and I am so excited to share them soonish!

Maternity Outfit Details:

Dress: Target

And I am going to end this pregnancy update here.  Short and sweet.  I can't believe how fast everything is going since I reached the third trimester.  Our little lady will be here before I know it!

You are looking good! I can't believe how close you are to meeting baby girl! Hopefully you get some of the energy back, or are at least able to get enough rest to make up for it. I can't wait to see her quilt, I'm sure it's beautiful!
