Week 34

Here I am, 5 weeks away from my due date and getting as anxious as can be... I'm starting to go into "freak out" mode since this is more real by the second. All along I have felt like I am so ready for this and now I'm not so sure...but I guess it's too late to go back! ha ha!
This week was a bit rough on me because it is extremely hot outside and I've been having hot flashes throughout the day for the past few days. Also, due to the extreme heat, my hands and feet continue to get really swollen and I can barely fit any shoes anymore.
My heartburn is a little better and my hunger is under control. Sleeping at night is not so pleasant but I guess it could be worse. I have a doctor's appointment next week, where they will do the Strep B test and will also check for effacement and dilation. I'm officially two weeks away from being "full term", which will put my mind at ease, although I highly doubt this baby will come before 40 weeks based on my previous history (Olivia was 4 days late!). I am arming myself with patience and tolerance to cope with the next 5 weeks accordingly.
