34 weeks (and not sure how I can get any bigger)!

34 weeks! We finished all of our baby classes and had the hospital tour this week. It almost feels real! We also finished the nursery minus the glider (ordered)... and the baby of course! There is still a lot we need but we are getting there, slowly but surely!

One of the sweetest things to happen to me this week (ever) arrived in a package this week. The package was from someone we didn't know. When we read the message the person said they had found our registry and wanted to send a random act of kindness gift. I was in tears over the kindness of strangers! It has even inspired others around me to do the same or start ministries at their church. I am looking forward to paying it forward at some point because of how much it blessed me!

I also walked a 5K with my mom yesterday. I have done 4 half marathons, countless short races (5Ks, 4+ milers, etc), and this was one of the hardest races I have done and I was walking! It had nothing to do with the race course and everything to do with being 8 1/2 months pregnant! I can't wait to run the same course next year (pushing a stroller!).

OK- Question time!

How far along: 34 weeks (and then some)
Total weight gain: More than 17 lbs, but I don't know how much more. I have an appt on Thursday, so I may find out then... but I hate finding that number out!
Maternity clothes: Always... and the looser the better when I am at home. 
Sleep: Still good, but I find myself laying only on one side and then waking up uncomfortable and having to turn, which of course wakes my bladder up so I have to get up and pee and then I lay back on the other side. Otherwise, sleep is my friend.
Best moment of this week: The random act of kindness gift, finishing our nursery, and finishing our baby classes!
Miss anything: Wine and running for sure!
Movement: Definitely
Food cravings: Fruit, coke slushies
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still red meat
Gender: Didn't find out! It will be a surprise!
Labor signs: Braxton Hicks contractions, but otherwise nothing else! I need 2 more weeks to finish the school year and then it can happen whenever.
Belly button in or out: In for not much longer, it is starting to pop out when I am laying down or when baby is positioned near it.
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or moody most of the time: Mostly happy, but definitely notice that I am getting moodier towards people.
Looking forward to: The glider coming in and my baby appointment on Thursday

I have been reading these each week, but I don't really comment. It is seriously crazy that your baby is almost here!!! I can't wait to see what you've done to the nursery :).
