34 weeks

Baby is now a bit over 2 kg. I was expecting more, but the doctor didn’t seem to be worried, she said it’s an estimation anyway, as long everything looks fine I should not worry either. But I did buy myself decaf to make for breakfast, let’s see if we can improve baby weight by next week’s check. She was joking with us regarding the baby’s gender.. I told her, if it turns out to be a boy, bummer, he will have to sleep only in pink pajamas :)) But she then assured us she was not seeing any male parts…

I washed the last of the clothes that I bought since last wash and the ones that I crocheted myself.. Will be ironing them tomorrow.

Otherwise.. I have a state somewhat between boredom and depression.. I want so many things done in the house, but I cannot do them myself.. I have no more patience. Everybody tells me to relax.. is not that easy to not do anything. I still washed the floor in the kitchen today, as Leo vacuumed everywhere and washed the hallway on Saturday and did also laundry… so the dirty kitchen floor was now standing out…

On Sunday we had 18 degrees. Leo took Bonnie for a walk and they ended up at Olesna for beer. And I didn’t have the braveness to go with them.. Now is cold again, max 7-8 degrees during the day.

My back is hurting more and more, also my left leg is hurting, at the pelvis, where it was broken, because, for the past 3 months, I am sleeping 80% of the time on my left side.

I’m having these Braxton Hicks contractions more often lately, yesterday and during the night I think I had more than 10, but today all morning only 2. They are not painful, just that I feel I need to change position because I cannot breathe when the belly gets hard, as the baby is now pressing on my right lung.

I was probably dehydrated, although I’m drinking more than 4l of water everyday and I’m waking up at night 3-4 times to pee and to drink water, but yesterday we had also other stuff to do before and after doctor, we left home at 7:30 and got back barely at 14… And last night I woke up 6 times… and the baby was also very restless.

So yeah.. keep calm and crochet. Counting 2 more days, for the Sun to enter Aries 😀 and then I will start to count backwards.

    My baby boy was estimated at 3.8Kg and he was actually 4.35Kg – so doctors can be super wrong with the estimates! Try not to get depressed with the wait, I know it feels like watching paint dry but go for walks, read books, watch movies, see friends/people – all the things you will have little time to do in the next few weeks/months after the baby comes 🙂 Make batches of your favourite food and freeze it for later… phone calls with your favourite people that you haven’t talked to in a very long time, I don’t know but I am sure you can find stuff to do until the baby comes, lol. Anything not to get depressed! Just a little bit more, Braxton Hicks are a sign that things are slowly starting to roll, so not much longer now! Hang in there!

      I would like to go for walks, but I’m still “sentenced” to bed rest and pelvic rest (that’s the worse)… I’m only going groceries shopping and doctor visit once per week..
      :)) I haven’t talked on the phone in years :)) I hate it. I prefer face to face (if I don’t feel intimidated) or chat… Or stalking on FB :))

      Our freezer barely has room for few bags of veggies and few pizzas.. When I cook, I like to eat my food fresh or in max 2 days, but I can’t brag with my minimalist cooking skills. When I have no more ideas what to cook, I order food – 1 time/week in average 🙂

      As for the estimated baby weight at delivery, it’s a criteria whether I will be allowed for natural delivery or C-section, but I’m scared anyhow.. I don’t know how women keep doing this, since the beginning of time.. We women are crazy.

    I am pretty sure you can come up with some creative ways to kill the time until exciting things will start happening 😀 And yes, we women are completely crazy, you will see the fully extent of it very very soon! 😀
