Gluten Free Bumpdate | Week 34

How far along? 34 weeks / 35 when this posts!
Total weight gain: Up 2 lbs over two weeks - so exactly on track.
Maternity clothes? Still yes!
Stretch marks? Still none!
Sleep: Horrible. Just horrible. I can't even elaborate, it's so frustrating.
Best moment this week: Three great moments this week. First, my husband getting home! Second, some colleagues who were in town. Lastly, we did our birth class which was really informative. 
Miss anything? Sleep and was seriously jealous of my colleagues who got to enjoy some margaritas when we went for a happy hour :)
Movement: Still lots! I don't want to go TMI, however, I also do want to share for the other pregnant ladies who are reading this. If you don't want to know, and/or if you're a dude, skip to Food Cravings now. *Okay you've been warned* I have been taking many more hits than usual down low / in the cervial region. This is a apparently a thing in pregnancy, it has a name (lightening crotch), and it is as horrendous as it sounds. It is probably one of the most uncomfortable things about pregnancy so far.
Food cravings: These natural popsicles in mango and coconut flavor. So good. So addictive.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Acid reflux still.
Gender: Still a boy as far as we know.
Labor signs: Nope!
Symptoms: Sore back, insomnia, acid reflex, a bit of swelling in my feet and hands, tiredness (probably from not sleeping!). And just because my eczema cleared up I had to get a monstrous spot on my chin. 
Belly button in or out? Still in!
Wedding rings on or off? Still on, sometimes with a bit of force, and I'm not sure it's destiny by the end of week 35.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy - especially since J got home! Even though I'm uncomfortable and exhausted there are lots of exciting things going on in my life personally (like Bricklet's impending arrival) and professionally. 
What are you looking forward to? We have a growth scan this week to see how massive he is; I always get excited to see him, though I'm a bit nervous because he was ahead of the curve in terms of size last scan at 24 weeks. Also just the proximity to meeting him - I have apparently convinced myself he will be a naturally early baby so I basically expect to meet him a couple weekends from now... I'm sure that's wishful thinking since I'm not exactly in love with being pregnant - but really, I know I will be meeting him within the next 6 weeks which is pretty cool.
