Almost 34 weeks

Time is flying by and I am getting bigger by the minute it seems. I must say, you are making daily life so difficult. My back aches, my knees hurt, and I am all around uncomfortable. Typing is hard because there is no feeling in my fingers and pain in my wrists. Not to mention, it is super hot outside. Being pregnant is apparently not something I am good at! It probably doesn't help that I am "AMA"- Advanced Maternal Age. This might have been easier 10 years ago.

Tomorrow you will be 34 weeks. In 3 weeks, you are considered full term. Daddy and I took childbirth prep classes this past Friday and Saturday. I think it freaked me out a little bit. I was glad to get a tour of where I will be having you, but it was scary to learn about all the pain that goes along with it. I hope you don't come so fast that I won't be allowed medication. Your mom thinks pain medicine is a beautiful thing, and I look forward to using it.

I can tell your are growing. Your feet or other limbs are in my ribs. It is hard to breathe. My right foot swells like no other. Check it out:

You are making me so queasy again. Man, I am complaining a lot, but this is just how it is. I feel bad because your brothers are not in school and want to do things, but I often do not feel well enough to go places. Torrin broke his arm a few weeks ago so he can't go to the pool, so that helps ease the guilt a little bit. I want them to have a good summer and I feel bad.

Daddy and I went to Hawaii. Thankfully Daddy got us upgraded to first class so that helped me a little bit. I still swelled. While in Hawaii I could not do much being so uncomfortable, but we did manage to see a good portion of the island. We did go in the pool, in the lazy river and in the saltwater lagoon. The feeling of weightlessness was fantastic. Hawaii was beautiful! Here is a picture of me at 31 weeks:

On June 10th, Nana, Aunt Denise and Aunt Noelle threw you a baby shower. About 28 people came and we got so many things! I was worried you did not have any clothes, but now I am thinking you have too many. Everyone but Nana, Aunt Denise and Aunt Noelle got you 3 month stuff so I had to exchange some of it for bigger sizes. Probably should have exchanged some more but I got into washing it all so that is not going to happen. I will post some pictures of the shower sometime....we can hope. 

I have been feeling overwhelmed with all the things that need to be done for your room. There is nothing on the walls, some clothes are washed, your stroller is put together, but I feel like your room is a total disaster. I don't have a baby book for you and I am scared I am not going to be ready for you. I hope you enjoy sleep as much as I do. To top it all off, today I ironed some of your bedding. I was not thinking and touched the iron to a place I shouldn't have. Now it is ruined but with the mattress on top, no one will see it. Whoopsie. 

We are so thankful for your Nana and Papa. They have given you so much! Nana took me to Babies R Us and got us some more things off the registry. Grandpa and Grandma have been very generous as well. You are so lucky to have so many people love you!

People keep telling me I am huge. They ask if I am due any day now, if there are twins, etc. It is frustrating. I know I am big-do I need to hear it every day? I will be curious to see when you arrive!
