34 Weeks

34 Weeks: Baby O2 is the weight of a cantaloupe. 
The baby weighs 4.75 pounds and is almost 18 inches long.  This week the fat layers are filling out, making him/her look rounder and the skin is smoother than ever.  His/her central nervous system and lungs are continuing to mature.

How far along? 34 Weeks
Total weight gain? 21 pounds
Maternity clothes? Definitely in pants with a mix of shirts.
Stretch marks? None as of now
Sleep? No problem whatsoever.
Best moment this week? Our whole Saturday!  We ran some quick errands in Olathe, had Maddy Girl's first birthday party, went down to Union Station so Cole could experience the Holiday Express Train, and then we headed back to Emporia for the Rusco's annual ugly sweater party.  Grammy drove down that evening to watch Cole so we could have a kid free night.  Trent more than enjoyed himself too ;)  Jam packed day of fun!!
Miss anything? Nada
Movement? All day and night long
Food cravings? Holiday cookies and lots of them!
Anything making you queasy/sick? Nothing
Gender? I have been guessing girl but last week I had a dream that the baby was a boy and oh my word he was so cuddly cute... just like his big brother :)
Labor Signs? Nothing at all in this last week.
Symptoms? More frequent bathroom breaks, hot when I sleep and that's really it.  No pains, no heartburn, no swelling... definitely different than it was with Cole at this point.
Belly button in or out? Out all the time 
Wedding rings on or off? On 
Happy or moody? Oh so happy- love this time of the year with our family and friends.
Looking forward to? Christmas!!!!!!  Can't wait to see Cole's reaction to the excitement of presents and fun with his family.  After watching his joy of opening presents with Maddy at her birthday party, I can't wait to see what he'll do at Christmas :)
Daddy moment?  Trent loves holiday stuff as much as I do and was just as excited as Cole for some of our fun this last week like carriage rides and the train.  
Big Brother Cole moment: Cole is more than ready for Christmas.  After opening some presents from Wendy and Jeremy and then "helping" Maddy open her birthday presents, Cole knows exactly what to do!  He is all about ripping off that paper and screaming at whatever is inside.  Christmas is sure to be wild this year and we can't wait!!
