34 Weeks!

I "borrowed" this from my sil's blog

How Far Along? I will be 34 weeks tomorrow
Weigh Gain/Loss? I no longer weigh myself because it depresses me. At my last appointment, I had gained 20 lbs
Maternity Clothes? Been wearing them since about 8-10 weeks!
Stretch Marks? I don't think I have any new ones, at least that I can tell
Sleep? Eh, what's that? If I wake up in the middle of the night to pee, then I have a horrible time getting back to sleep. My mind just keeps racing about everything we still need to do. Plus, we're still co-sleeping with Ewan, so having an almost 2 year old in the bed definitely keeps me up at times. I really hope this little girl is a better sleeper because I don't think I can handle two kids that don't sleep well!
Best Moment This Week? Having a 4 day work week!
Movement? She's still moving around in there, but I can tell she's getting crowded because I feel less kicks and more rolls. But, when she does kick, ouch! I'm also hearing this popping sound a lot, which I think is either her joints popping or ligaments around my belly. No one can give me an actual explanation.
Food Cravings? Lately it's been fresh veggies
Gender? It better be a girl otherwise we have a lot of stuff to take back!
Labor Signs? Whenever I'm on my feet for more than 5-10 minutes or so, I start having contractions. I think they're just Braxton Hicks, but they feel different than they did with Ewan. My doctor isn't worried as long as they go away once I'm off my feet and hydrated. She also said that if I go into labor after 34 weeks then they won't stop it. Well, I'm at 34 weeks...
What I miss? Being able to sleep on my stomach. Actually just being able to move in general. It's so much harder this time around and I'm in a lot of pain most days from spd and sciatica. 
What I am looking forward to? Baby Girl's arrival and getting the c-section out of the way so I can starting feeling better again
Extra Tidbits? Not really, just looking forward to meeting my little girl
Last Thoughts? In five short weeks, I will be the mother to two children...Ahh!!!
