34 Week Survey

How far along? 34 weeks and 2 days
How big is baby? According to The Bump, 17.2 - 18.7 in. and 4.2-5.8 lbs; roughly the size of a honeydew melon. 
Total weight gain/loss: Up 25 lbs.
Sleep: Still having the RLS, but its hitting me more during the day now.  I get so stiff in the middle of the night, that it causes serious pain and takes major effort to change positions.  We camped this past weekend, and slept on an air mattress that kept losing air.  I had the HARDEST time rolling around on it!  I've given up on sleeping in, as I get tired of lying in bed being uncomfortable.
Best moment this week:  Realizing in just under 3 weeks, this little boy will be considered full-term!
Movement: I can feel him making total-body movements now instead of just kicks/punches.  He will occasionally stick a foot out, but mostly its him balling himself up, pushing his back or butt out.
Symptoms:  Just about everything imaginable.
Symptoms I DON'T have: Carpal tunnel syndrome (or any of the symptoms) and heartburn.
Food cravings:  Just food in general :)
Food aversions: Nothing that I've found.
Gender: Boy!
Labor Signs: None, except for increasing Braxton Hicks contractions.
Belly Button in or out? Now totally flush with the rest of my belly.
What I miss: Being able to move like a normal person, and my regular clothes.
What I am looking forward to:  Our second baby shower this coming weekend, and then going shopping for last minute items!
Milestones: Knowing our little guy would most likely do just fine if he were born today!
