Growing Baby Cannon Weeks 33-34

  • This week we took our birth class- which exceeded our expectations of how informative and practical it was.  It was very interactive and the lady teaching it did a great job in keeping everyone really involved and covering a lot of really important information.
  • Tons of Braxton Hicks contractions this week!
  • I have started to feel a fair bit more uncomfortable this week. Especially by the end of the day, I feel like it’s hard to get situated into a comfortable position.
  • I also felt kind of just “big” this week.
  • My belly button hasn’t popped out at all- but I think it’s pretty confused, because it just looks really squished.
  • The excitement is hitting us pretty strongly!  We have a lot set up for Cannon already- the crib and changing table are ready to go, and it’s crazy to think that we really are on the last leg of this pregnancy journey!

  • All was well at his appointment this week- and he is head down which is really awesome!  Our midwife thinks we have a good chance that he’ll stay that way.  His little bum is on my left side right now and he likes to stick it way out sometimes!
  • I am still sleeping well, although sometimes it’s just a bit hard to get comfortable.
  • I am SOOOO itchy!  I just want to put lotion on all day and not wear anything tight!
  • I have had heartburn/acid reflux almost this whole pregnancy, and I have never taken anything for it- but the other night I just got kind of mad about it and I told Adam- “that’s it, I am taking something for this acid reflux!” So we asked our midwife and she recommended papaya enzymes.  It’s an all natural supplement to aid with digestion- and it works wonders!  I wish I had asked about it much sooner!
  • Sitting in chairs for long periods of time is extremely uncomfortable and hard for me to stay focused.  By 7pm I just want to be in really comfy clothes and sprawled out on the bed or couch.
  • His movements definitely feel stronger now as the amniotic fluid levels have decreased since he is getting bigger.
  • I ended up having a quit work about 2 weeks earlier than I had planned on and anticipated.  It was just too strenuous, and I was having lots of Braxton Hicks and needed to allow myself the freedom to lie down and take things a bit easier.
  • This week I have gotten a lot of organizing done with his clothes and diapers and I think that with each passing day we are getting more and more excited to have him here!
