Bump Watch - 34 Weeks

34 weeks. 42 days until my due date. Breathe in. Breathe out. Time is flying by and I almost want it to slow down. There are so many things up in the air about our life right now. I don't know how we are going to make all these big decisions (like about where to live!) during this time. I also have started thinking about whether I really am going to be a good mother or not. I thought about this before we pursued treatments to get pregnant, but it didn't really hit me as hard as it needed to. There are so many aspects that I need to work on in my life. How am I going to be a good example for this little person. How am I going to make sure that she makes it to heaven along with Russ and myself? What and enormous responsibility. I know I'm ready to take this step. It's just a very big step and I so want to be the best mother I can possibly be.
Weight gain: 19 pounds.I have started having a few new pregnancy symptoms. I blogged yesterday about my emerging stretchmarks and belly button so I won't bore you with that. I have been having an increasingly difficult time sleeping. I have to get up to use the restroom about four times a night and I just can't seem to stay in one position for too long. Also, I have had the worst drooling issues! I've never been the most beautiful sleeper, but I've never woken up in an enormous puddle of my own drool...or when I snuggle with Russ and put my head on his chest, I wake up because I drool all over him. It is a big problem...hilarious, but a problem. Another thing, I have become the most clumsy person...which is quite evident by the salsa I just dripped down my front. Or maybe I have always been clumsy, but I didn't have the belly for food particles to hit to notice? I guess all I can do is laugh about all of it!

I admit to always being a bit of a sleep drooler, but since I became pregnant I have had a noticeable increase in saliva! I drool constantly in my sleep and I'm always randomly choking on spit during the day. It's very annoying. Yes, kind of humorous... but annoying!

Sorry you aren't sleeping well. I'm starting to have some issues with that too... my snoogle helps a lot but even that isn't cutting it like it did at first.

I never drool, but while I was pregnant goodness. Also I never snore except while I was pregnant. Sleeping yeah in my 3rd trimester never really happened. Hey it just trains you for night feedings.: ) Good luck! You are going to be a good mom especially since you worry about it.

Wow your time is really coming fast. The fact that you are already thinking about what kind of mother you will be tells me you will be a great one. I'm sorry you are feeling worse. These next few weeks will be tough, but you will make it through. Just keep thinking about that sweet baby girl in your tummy.

a - totally hear you on the weight thing. I'm already freaking out about putting some back on (which is good and normal) after fighting so hard to get the weight to come off.

b - I'm petrified of an only chid too. I wonder about that... guess we can only pray and trust God.

c - funny about the drooling. I've never heard about that.

d - that's awesome about the Bible reading. WOW!!!
