34 weeks

**I put a lot of questions marks because I was supposed to have an appointment this afternoon, but as I was pulling in to the hospital, I got a phone call saying they needed to reschedule.  I go to the Dr. on Wednesday morning, so I'll have all the official stats then. 

how far along?  34 weeks
how are you measuring? ?? 36 weeks
size of baby? According to Baby Center our baby is 18 inches long, about 4.75 pounds, and the weight of an average canteloupe 
heartbeat? 130's bpm (at our 34 week appointment)
total weight gain/loss? +33 lbs  I can SO tell he is growing.
maternity clothes? Maternity clothes all the way!!   
stretch marks? Still no stretch marks!!  Still lotioning up twice a day!! Still hoping I can make it 6 more weeks without getting stretch marks!!
sleep? I'm really getting tired of sleeping on my side.  I don't even sleep with covers anymore.  I get SO hot at night.  I set a record this week with bathroom trips during the night.  I went to the bathroom right before I went to bed, then went 4 times during the night, and finally woke up for the day because I had to go to the bathroom.  So a total of 6 bathroom breaks in one night.  Crazy!!  Last night I consistently went every hour and a half. Can you say annoying??
best moment this week? We had another wonderful shower given by my Kindergarten team, I finally purchased the final touches to Pearson's nursery, and I got to celebrate my "first" Mother's Day.  
movement? He moves all the time, but especially in the afternoon when I get home from school and right as I crawl in bed.  On Friday night we hung out with a bunch of our ABF friends at a Crawfish Boil.  He was moving a ton and a few of the girls asked if they could feel him move.  They all got to feel him squirm around and even felt him when had the hiccups. It was so fun to "show off my baby's tricks"!! Ha!!
food cravings? Ice Water still.  I seriously can't enough.  Oh and a snow cone!!
gender predictions? It's a BOY!!!  Pearson Davis Link!!!
what i miss:  I really miss sleeping on my back.  When it's hot, I like to sleep on my back all sprawled out.  I can't do that and I REALLY miss it.  I'm so tired of sleeping on my side.  
what i'm looking forward to: My last shower next Sunday given by some friends.  FINISHING Pearson's nursery.  I promise I'm actually going to finish it this week.  I have to.  The shower my friends are giving me is at my house, so I have to have his nursery finished so I can show it off.  So pictures coming very very soon!!
how are you feeling? I feel fine in the mornings and during the day, but I really start to run out of steam in the evenings.  I start to feel VERY pregnant and move pretty slow after dinner.  I think I might even have a little waddle going on.  Only in the evenings though.

It is AWESOME when you come home from the hospital, crawl in your once-again-comfy bed (not for long, but never mind that) & lay on your back... ahhhhh. Oh & I don't know if anyone told you yet, but after you give birth, that first time you go to the bathroom, you'll be amazed at how much pee your body can hold again. It's unbelievable, really!

Hi Katy,
I came over from the Johnson & Johnson blog. I remember the days of wanting to sleep on my back so badly. About this time in my pregnancy I ended up sleeping in my recliner more since I wasn't flat on my back but it was better restless sleeping on my side in the bed.
