34 weeks and roasted pumpkin seeds

I am now 34 weeks. I had an appointment last week and they did an ultrasound. The baby weighed 4lb 13oz and everything looked really good. I will have my next appointment November 5 and hopefully I will find out a date for my C-section at that time so we can start making plans! Here is a picture of me at 34 weeks.

We also had maternity photos taken about a week ago. I never had that done when I was pregnant with Austin so I'm pretty excited about these. I haven't seen them all yet but this is my favorite so far.

Austin is doing well also. I can't believe he is almost 3! Here is a picture of him at the pumpkin patch.

I will leave you with a recipe for roasted pumpkin seeds that I made last night from the pumpkin we got at the pumpkin patch. I made one savory batch and one sweet.


1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp paprika

1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt

31 weeks

Today I had my 31 week check-up. Everything still looks good. Surprisingly my blood pressure has been really good so far this pregnancy, even better than before I got pregnant. The baby's heart rate was strong and I was measuring right on track. I supposedly had gained 6 pounds since my last visit which seems like a ton but oh well. I feel like a hippo or a whale or some other large animal most days and can't wait until I can get back in shape and start shedding some of these pounds! Here is a picture of me taken yesterday.

My next appointment is Ocobter 17th and hopefully I will get a c-section date at that time so we can start making plans!

On another note, Austin had a check-up last week and he is measuring at 37.5 inches and 35 pounds. He is still doing ok with the potty training but most days he has at least one accident. I don't think he quite understands about the baby yet but I'm sure once he is here Austin will make a great big brother!

I will update more after my next appointment!
