How Far Along: 33 weeks
Size of the baby: A pineapple (about 19-22 in long, 4.9 lbs)
Total Weight Gain: 17 lbs Update: 20 lbs (just got back from doctor, baby is growing!)
Maternity Clothes: ALL maternity, finding it difficult to dress these days because I have worn so many dresses up to this point and now with the weather cooling off - - trying to find pants I like has become a challenge. Really thinking about buying a tarp, poking some holes in it for my head and arms and calling it a day. I can always jazz it up with a belt or something....
Gender: Unknown. Most people said they thought we would have a girl, but I've had 3 people in the last week tell me I look like I'm carrying a boy.... what excitement it will be when we find out!
Movement: All day and all night, most of the time a feel a foot on the right side and then the head or some other body part lifting up on the other side, funny to watch!
Sleep: Not much, waking up to use the restroom a whole lot. I have also become very thirsty at night, so I drink water, go to sleep, wake up to use the restroom, drink more water, sleep, and start the whole cycle over again.
What I miss: Getting around with ease, I struggle to breath and move around with the extra weight.
Symptoms: Swelling of feet and hands, THIRSTY, backaches...
Cravings: THIRSTY for orange juice when I wake up and thirsty for water all night long.
Weekly Wisdom: People really WILL say anything to a pregnant lady with no filter.
Best Moment of the Week: Being able to be with a friend who had her baby 9 weeks early and meeting her little guy for the first time - what a miracle to see.
Looking forward to: Fall Break this week, seeing some friends, and my next doctor's appointment.
