Bumpdate: Baby #2, Week 34

Cooper came home this week!  We had a nice day together on Monday when we picked him up, and, well, we’ve been struggling ever since.  His escaping fiasco on Tuesday (explained in the vlog), left me barely able to walk for a few days.  I feel like I pulled every muscle on one side of my body and my leg was actually sore to the touch.  I’ve recovered since then, but oy vey, how on earth will I handle a 2-year-old, crazy dog, AND newborn?  Time will tell. 

Other than that, we’re finally really getting settled into the house, and finally finally started discussing baby names.  We made it through girl names A-Z, and will start fresh with boy names soon.  They’ll all remain a secret until the baby is actually born, and I’m not a huge fan of any of the girl names we picked, but hopefully they grow on me over the next few weeks. 

How Far Along:   
34 weeks.

Size of baby:   
Cantaloupe

Total Weight Gain:  
Back up to 23.5.

Stretch Marks:
No new ones yet.  I didn’t pop them with Benjamin until a month before he was born, so I’m just waiting for the inevitable. 

Maternity Clothes: 
Nothing new.  I got a super cute fun black dress over the summer on major clearance, and I’m dying to wear it somewhere.  Christmas, perhaps?

Gender: 
Still stumped.  Still would be shocked if it was a boy, but at the same time, I feel like it’s possible. 

Movement:    
Getting a bit more active this week after a few weeks of relative peace and quiet. 

Sleep:   
I’ve been told the snoring is out of this world. 

What I miss: 
Mmmm sweets – give me all the cakes and cookies!

Food Cravings:  
See above!

Symptoms:  
Leg cramps, heartburn, the usual. 

Benjamin is:   
Doing well in our new home.  After a rocky few first nights, he’s settled into a decent sleep schedule, which I’m very excited about!

What I’m looking forward to:  
Finishing reading my Bradley birth book – as soon as I find it!  It’s been missing for two weeks and hey – I’m running out of time to finish it!

  3. I'm at 35 weeks and I finally feel some what ready. Every part of me aches! I feel like I've been riding cross country on a horse, followed up by some wicked spin classes. My snoring wakes ME up at night it is so bad.

  4. We had picked Nathan for a boys name originally but I found myself not wanting to tell anyone that is what we picked. It didn't sit well with me. Then I started looking over the list of names we had picked and found Samuel aka Sam and the more I thought about it the more I loved it. So maybe do it that way. If someone asks you what the baby's name is what's the first name that pops in your head? Then compromise use the top pick of your husband's names as a middle name if you aren't doing a name sake.

    You will have to pick up the dog food bowl LOL We can't leave it down because Sam is all up in the bowls. You may think of an invisible fence? Might be worth checking out until Cooper chills out.

    Oh man the mud IDK how you did it! I would have just cried lol. Lucas and Sam love our dogs. Zoe is a border collie so she is very protective of Sam :) She's pretty calm though which is great. Hopefully Cooper will calm down once you have the baby and everyone is all settled in.

    For the leg cramps try drinking an extra glass of water especially at night it seemed to really help that. My calves hurt so so so bad during the last few months that I couldn't sleep. Tom would have to rub them to help settle me down to fall asleep but the water helped.

    You look amazing! Can't wait until you have this little baby! lol
