34 weeks




My belly hurts!! I really don't think the baby has dropped, but man I am feeling some pressure. I feel like I'm carrying a bowling ball right in front of me. The top of my stomach feels bruised and I noticed my first pregnancy stripes today (aka stretch marks)!! Two very tiny red lines at the top of my belly...they almost look like 2 little red scratches, maybe 1/2 an inch long. Today was especially fun b/c my maternity pants bunched up BELOW my belly, and the shirt I wore today kept riding up.

I feel so heavy, it's definitely harder to get around. I feel like an old lady if I get up from sitting too long. However, I have 6 more weeks!! And I hope Baby Burns stays put the entire time. I can get through this knowing that BB is safe and secure in my belly, growing and growing....moving and moving. I always feel him/her on my right side, but today there was a lot of action on both sides. Maybe the baby is turning? I have no clue, but I absolutely love it when he/she moves. I'm really going to miss that feeling.

**UPDATE** No stretch marks...they really were tiny scratches. Oh well, I'm sure they'll pop up any day now! And apparently I was just having a "growing pains" kind of day. Not as much pressure or aching anymore. Phew!

You said exactly what I was thinking. The last month is the hardest but you will definitely miss feeling him/her move inside of you. So enjoy it now. I'm so excited for you guys. I can't believe it is almost time!

Wow, I love the pic! You look amazing. I feel the same way that you have described, but I have 10 weeks to go. I know you mean about wanting the little one to last ALL 10 weeks to continue to grow and mature. Best wishes in making it those 6 weeks.

Hey BB! I didn't get stretch marks until AFTER Lauren came out. And they are two small marks so not too bad. Good luck!! :)
