Bump update

How far along: 34 weeks
Total weight: 93 kilos.
Stretch marks: I have some, but not very bad ones. The midwife said they're quite faded compared to other ones that she see's.
Best moments this week: Getting back on my blog, I know I have been missing for a while, but I haven't had the motivation or energy to come on here and actually post. I don't ever want to force writing my blog, I started it as a hobby, and I would hate to feel like I had to write it. I have been writing my bump updates on my phone, but I didn't want to post them without editing them on here first, because call me fussy if you like, but I like them to be set out a certain way.
Miss anything: I miss not being able to make plans just because you can, whenever I wake up, I check to see if I have any appointments I need to attend. It is Wednesday today - I've had 3 appointments already this week! That is a lot to keep up with and remember. Also if I want to go out, I can't really plan it and then stick to it, because at the moment I've been feeling so ill that I've just ended up breaking plans, and letting people down. This is turn makes me feel rubbish because I hate having to cancel, although I think I hate being stuck indoors more!
Movement: Little lady is still very active, I had a growth scan on Monday, when the lady started scanning, Baby E started kicking the little scanning thing (I really have no clue what it is called - I even googled it and Google didn't have a answer! If you know what it is called, let me know please!) The sonographer quickly lost her patients trying to scan baby E, because every time she got it right where she needed to be, she moved or kicked which disrupted the picture making it difficult for her to get the measurements she needed.
Gender: Girl
Labor signs: I've been having contractions on and off all week still, I also have a a lot of pressure, I feel like I need to pee constantly, but even when I do go - it doesn't relieve it. I know this can be a sign of a UTI, but my urine got tested and it isn't that. The midwife said it can be a sign of labor which doesn't really surprise me, it's just a odd feeling - When it's your first baby you don't know what to expect. I know I feel like a pain in the bum always asking the midwife why I feel this way or that.
Symptoms: forgetful, clumsy, and tired.
How do i feel: I'm still not feeling much better then I felt last week, the sickness is back, and the heat really doesn't help. Everything I eat seems to come back up, Glorious thing is pregnancy! I think I am one of those people who just isn't made to be pregnant. The whole thing has definitely made me think twice about having another baby, although everyone seems to think that once Baby E is here I will forget all the bad stuff during the pregnancy, be overwhelmed by my little girl, and it will make me want another. We shall see.
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding ring on or off: Off - I'm still sad about this!
Cravings: I haven't really got any cravings this week due to the fact I really have no appetite still. 

How your baby grows
Week 34: Your baby may have moved into the head down position, as she gets ready for birth.
