34 Week Bumpdate #BabySkoDos

I'm so late posting this! My app has already switched to 35 weeks so I don't even know how big Baby Girl is. I think it was some type of cabbage...or maybe also a baguette?! Oh well, let me dramatically fill you in on my 34th week....
I gained another pound. That means I've gained 27 pounds so far. My biggest challenge has been staying hydrated. Work has been ridiculously busy and I just can't get enough water in no matter how hard I try. It's a priority I swear, I'm somehow falling short because my braxton hicks have been in full swing, not to mention all the charlie horses and cramps I wake up with every night and morning.

Nowwww, let's get the complaints out there. I'm exhausted. Everything hurts. It's official...I'm to "that" point. I'm ready to not be pregnant anymore. Just. So. Done. And the heat! OMG, my office is a sauna! That's not the hormones (although I'm sure everyone thinks I'm the crazy overheated pregnant lady)...it's downright HOT!

No matter what though, I'm SO excited about work! There's nothing like the fresh start of a brand new school year, it's one of my favorite parts about being a school counselor. The goal is to put on my happy face and crank these next few weeks out! Students start on Thursday and the 16/17 year is already off to a great start! Despite the excitement, I'm thinking right now isn't the best time to be writing this. I practically worked all weekend long and I'm drained both physically and mentally.  You're just catching me at a bad time. Honestly I feel decent when I wake up in the morning and I'm able to power through most of the day, but as soon as late afternoon rolls around, it's like I turn into another person. I try to get as much relaxation in as possible when I'm home. I'm really looking forward to being able to get down on the floor and actually PLAY with Ella. Poor girl probably thinks Mommy is such a lazy bum!

I have some simple meals planned for the upcoming week. I'm not sure I'll even be around much to cook so at least there's not much to think about. I haven't done a "what's cooking" post in a bit...but the plan is to clear out my freezer (grilling up meat and pairing with simple veggies...a taco salad one night...finishing some leftover sauce....nothing fancy). I want to make room for some meals for when baby gets here. When Ella was born, I stockpiled the freezer with things like turkey chili, and chicken fajitas. Maybe I'll check out some of those ready to go freezer crock pot meals I pinned ages ago. If anyone has any favorites, let me know! Right now I'm "nesting" but it's translating to my office. Switching gears to nesting at home! I should probably pack that hospital bag. I've only been talking about it for the last month!

We took some maternity photos last week with our friend Bobby. Although I didn't feel like doing a fancy formal photo shoot, it was important that I had some photos to remember this pregnancy by! It is so darn hot and humid out, it had to be quick! For being such a last minute and casual thing....I'm LOVING how these photos came out! Here are a few...
