We Made it to Week 34

It is officially week 34 of the pregnancy. In a way I am surprised that we made it this far but am very relieved that we have. As of tomorrow I would have made it further with this pregnancy that I did with Emma. We Emma there was no clue she was coming until it was far too late. She did great though and there were no complications or developmental issues with her so that settles the nerves this time around. On Wednesday we have an appointment with the OB and they will perform an ultrasound to check to see how well the baby has developed and take some cervical measurements  do a Fetal Fibronectin test and check to see if I have dilated and effaced any further. If I have it is possible that they will put me on hormones to try to stop labor from progressing and steroids to help his lungs develop faster. Boy do I hate steroids. Being put on steroids is nothing new for me and I know how my body reacts to them. 15 to 20 lbs of weight gain each 2 week round. Yuck! But if I have to, I have to. At this point weight is not something I really should be concerned about. It has been a bit since I have experienced any cramping but the pressure is much worse and I can’t even be up and about for my 20 to 30 minutes without it bothering me anymore.  It sure makes showering tough because I am a slow showerer (is that a word?).  The fatigue is getting worse and I have been getting terrible headaches. Here is to hoping that doesn’t mean there has been progress.

We had a pretty full weekend here at the Robinson abode. Babysat for the weekend. I forgot how much work my autistic nephew is. But I was happy to have them over and help out. No more babysitting for quite a while for me though. it was exhausting! Shoot, going out for pizza tonight was exhausting! Bedtime can’t come quick enough tonight (even though half the day was slept away).

I have not weighed myself or any of that fun stuff so there is nothing to report there and I am sure we will get a more accurate weight of the fetus on Wednesday so I will fill everyone in on that when I know myself. But here are some general week 34 facts:

  • Baby weighs on average 4 3/4 lbs
  • Average length is almost 18 inches long
  • Lungs are maturing
  • The central nervous system is also maturing
  • Fat layers are building up and rounding him out

34 Weeks!
