How far along? 33 weeks; 7 weeks to go
Size of baby ? Baby S is about 17.2 inches long. The Average weight for 33 weeks is 4 lbs 7oz. I had an ultrasound with our fetal specialist this week and we received an estimated measurement, but I don’t think its accurate at all so will share after my follow up visit. According to thebump she is the size of a durian fruit. Not to sure what the is. . .
Maternity Clothes? Actually bought a dress (non maternity) that is comfortable but other than that everything I wear besides PJs is maternity. I am not planning on buying anything else for the remainder of the pregnancy, after all there isn’t much time left!
Weight Gain? Somewhere between 28-31 .. Last week it was 28 lbs at the endocrinologist and yesterday it was 31lbs at the fetal specialist… I will see again on Friday morning at my midwife appt !
Stretch Marks? My skin is actually doing very well. The sides of my breast MAY have slight stretch marks but it is still hard to tell. I keep telling myself “ just keep lubing, just keep lubing, lubing lubing, lubing,” ( yes it’s to the tune of Dori from Finding Nemo.
Sleep? I can’t complain about sleep honestly. I am getting (for the most part) quality sleep. She moves a lot in the night but its not painful, just more ‘annoying’. Just think of someone tapping your shoulder while your trying to get to sleep.
Missing anything? RUNNING , flat stomach, my normal clothes.
Craving anything? Not a thing jelly bean !
Any sickness? None
Bump ? Yep
Baby Movement ? Constant. I get a few breaks. . . but hey ! I prayed for a moving baby and I was given that. I can’t be more thankful for her moving constantly rather than not. Keeps me sane I tell you !
Belly Button: Mmh VERY VERY shallow, pretty flat, some parts in and some parts out. I told my husband “at least I have an opportunity to clean out the bottom of my belly button .
Labor Signs: Little cramps. Not Braxton hicks
Mood: I have had an okay week. Besides the news from my fetal specialist ( will share another time) and having a melt down on the phone with my doula, It’s been good !
Symptoms: Mild period like cramps, excessive thirst, excessive bathroom breaks, acid reflux , restless leg syndrome, hip discomfort ( definitely have the waddle down – I used to wobble but now I waddle hahaha )…
Here is the wobble :
Milestones: Finished our birthing class. Started doing prenatal visits with my doula <–I LOVE HER! You may think I am crazy with an F for saying this but she has ALREADY given me so much support I am actually looking forward to labor and delivery!!!!
Looking Forward to: Seeing my family this weekend. Having my first baby shower.
Today I got two amazing comments , thought I would share …
— looks like you have a table top to set your diet coke on??? ( my boss said that LOL) I sat my diet coke on my belly and said not near a table top !!!
— You are huge girl, are you gonna make it to the due date?? WOW, I thought I looked smallER compared to other 33 week pregos I see, Oh well !
HAPPY BUMPDAY !
