34 weeks

This week she is the size of a medium pumpkin. She is 19.5-20 inches long and 5 pounds. She is prepping for her birthday by bulking up layers of vernix, that white coating that protects her skin from nicks and scratches.
On Monday I had an ultra sound and the head and abdomen were measured. The doctor said that the head was measuring in the 90Th percentile and the abdomen was measuring in the 3rd percentile. Normally the head and the abdomen should be measuring the same. The Dr doesn't think that the ultra sound machine was working right but he said that if that is the case that my placenta isn't working correctly and it is getting all of the nutrients to the brain and head first and very little is going to the abdomen, making it so that my baby has a bigger head then abdomen. This made him a little worried so we are going to do another ultra sound on Monday and remeasure everything. I will keep you informed on what is going on...
I am so ready for this baby to come out. I have been so uncomfortable, i have a huge belly and i hate not being able to move normally. Lately I have been having a hard time sleeping too, I will be so tired all day but when it is time to go to bed I am wide awake and can't fall asleep. It is so annoying! Only 5 and half more weeks for me, I can't wait.

Amy, I hope everything is going well and that ultrasound machine wasn't working right. You're at the hardest part, I think! The end just drags! Hopefully, she comes out soon.
