John had a bachelor party in Athens this past weekend and we both had Prez Day off on Monday, so I twisted his arm into staying in Athens on Sunday night. It was a post-Vday celebration, pre-baby jaunt. I pitched it as a last getaway before we become parents --how many times am I going to use this one?!
We stayed at The Foundry, brunched at the highly recommended Branded Butcher (it did not disappoint), shopped downtown (I've forgotten how cheap everything is), got a fabulous pre-natal massage, and capped it off with dinner at one of our faves & an Athens staple, Last Resort. We also put it together that we met 10 years ago this year in Athens. CRAZY. That's another story in itself!
Picture on the far left was our old stomping grounds senior year. Best house ever. 7 girls, 2 bathrooms, more late nights than we can count.
It was so much fun to get away on a whim & it was the perfect date night before we become parents (my famous last words!).
Today marks 34 weeks & 4 days...38 days from D-date....wow is all I can think to say right now. Are we prepared? No. (Will we ever be?) Are we excited? Beyond.
Here is Week 34 in recap ::
How far along? 34 weeks.
Baby Size: About 5 lbs and 18 inches long. Baby can blink eyes and lots of brain development this week!
Total weight gain/loss: Find out next week.
Maternity clothes? Mixture of both, but mostly maternity.
Stretch marks? Nope, fingers crossed.
Sleep: Several adjustments & potty breaks throughout the night, but still waking up feeling fully rested.
Best moment this week: We finally set up the crib and the glider arrived. Makes it that much more real! Also, hosting some friends baby showers that are due 3 weeks before and 2 weeks after me. Baby H is going to have lots of friends!
Miss Anything? Bending over easily. It’s touch getting dressed & putting on shoes!
Movement: Lots of movement everyday around 2pm. And the hiccups continue.
Food cravings: Red Berries Special K, blueberries, and lots of Valentines sweets & desserts. Girl Scout cookies were also delivered this week…!
Aversions/Anything making you queasy or sick: No.
Misc: Continued lower back pain but it’s just part of it. Also the face is starting to chunk up & swell along with my fingers! The water retention is kicking in.
