Baby Update- Week 34

I had my 34 week check up today. Everything was great! The heartbeat was nice and strong, and I am measuring right on again. Gained 1 lb this past two weeks... although I feel like I have gained a lot more. So far only 17 lbs. Here is a week 34 belly shot...

So for the past week or so, I have been having a lot of Braxton Hicks contractions, especially in the evenings. I haven't been concerned at all, as I know they are only the warm ups for the real deal! But last night, I was having them every 5 minutes or so for about 3 hours... so I mentioned that to my Dr. and he decided it was time to start the "exams" to see if those contractions were doing anything....

Turns out, they have been doing a little something... I am 1 cm dilated so far. Everything else is still the same... but the progress has begun. There is no stopping it now! It kind of makes the fact that Jack is coming sooner than later, seem much more real now! I certainly am not thinking he will appear any time soon, but it is nice to know that I have 1 less centimeter to go, when it comes time for his delivery!

Next appointment is next Wednesday for a sonogram and all that good stuff.... Crazy times!
