34 Weeks

Filed under: 34 Weeks,General,Weeks in Utero — Beth @ 9:48

Another week has just flown by and here we are at 34 weeks. Not much change over last week – Pip continues to roll a lot when moving, rather than kicking outright or stretching out. It’s fairly painful sometimes – this kiddo likes to put arms up above head, push that way and stretch out legs at the same time and push the other way. This distends my belly pretty clearly, as far as I’m concerned, though Sabs still says he can’t see it. Heh.

I had either food poisoning or a 24 hour stomach thing on Sunday night. That was zero fun. Way too much like the feeling of being in transition last time, with the twisting gut, pain in the sides and then the puking. The baby dropped right after everything purged, rendering the top of my abdomen almost flat, as if he/she were taking refuge down in my pelvis to hide from the violence going on around him/her.

Thankfully, the incident did not kick off labor and the pressure didn’t break my water.

We’ve got a long weekend coming up, hurray! I’m really looking forward to spending the time with Sabs and Vic as a family as the countdown gets closer and closer to baby day.
