Week 34

by Ashley on June 21, 2011


We had a great time in Cape Cod–eating lots of seafood (I think I may have gone over the recommended 12-ounces this week), riding bikes, and reading, just as we’d planned. I’ve been feeling great, with the exception of some heartburn, and continue to marvel at how fast the time is flying by.

I brought about a million pregnancy and newborn-care books with us. Basically, we brought along all of the reading that had been lent to us and which we have been meaning to read for maybe, oh, the past 34 weeks. We laughed at the idea of going on a babymoon only to read about babies the whole time, but I know we were both relieved to feel a bit more versed in all that is to come. And frankly, it was a lot of fun to think about it together and, as cheesy as it sounds, to talk about hopes and fears and dreams. (Which category do you think explosive poop falls into?)

(P.S. Happy first day of summer!)

Hope the heartburn and sleep is getting better! I’m exhausted these days–I think from light sleep cycles. But yes… not long now!

In the daily nightmares category along with the never ending laundry and stained-for-life onesies! 😉

You look great for 34 weeks, showing pregnant women around the world how it should be done!

So funny, Clare! I have a feeling I’ll really be wishing we had our own laundry machines… (And thank you so much for the nice comment. Really appreciated!)

Hi Ashley! Are there any books in your large stack that you highly reccommend? (Other than Bossypants-I already know that one is awesome!)

We really enjoyed Happiest Baby on the Block. Both the Mayo Clinic guide and the AAP guide seem really balanced. The Mayo is the more comprehensive of the two. I’m working on a post about pregnancy books, but of these I might say the Mayo guide if I could only pick one. We’re currently reading Heading Home with Your Newborn and it seems good as well…
