34 Weeks = Bowl of Oranges

Today, I'm 34 weeks and 2 days pregnant, and Arlo(!!) probably weighs just under 6 pounds now. The 8 oranges in this bowl weigh a total of 5lbs 10oz. I'm just improvising this week—and will probably continue to do so—since the fruit comparison charts I was using are nonsensical and really annoying.

I'm sure I looked like a lunatic when I was weighing these at the grocery store, swapping them out and trying to find the perfect combination for this week's representation. It took longer than I care to admit. (And my eyes say it all here. I can hardly stay awake.)

Arlo can recognize simple songs now, and he's urinating about a pint a day. He's just jammin' and peein' and having a grand old time in there.

Let's zoom in on that thing.

My symptoms haven't been too terrible this week. Aside from incessant peeing (waaaaay more than a pint a day) and exhaustion, I had a weird episode of seeing cloudy spots when I was driving home from the mall on Sunday. Supposedly, blurry vision is common around this time, and is caused by a combination of hormones, fluid buildup, and lack of sleep. At least I know I'm probably not going blind, thank goodness.

40 days to go!

Yikes, the blurry vision sounds frightening even if it is normal! Had to laugh at the weighing oranges and trying to find the perfect combo - that's something I would do!

You are just too cute! I saw spots the other day & have had blurry vision (not too often, just a few times) too. I’m thinking it’s a combination of things like blood rushes. : ) Won’t be long before you get to hold your sweet, Arlo!

TheBooks, it's weird, isn't it?? It happened again a few days ago, but this time, it was like a whole bunch of weird little bugs floating around in front of my face. It took everything I had not to try to reach out and catch them. So trippy. :P
