Just 6 weeks left!
How far along: 33 weeks. (From the Bump) We’d tell you to take a deep breath and relax, but it’s probably tough to do either of those at 33 weeks. It’s probably tough to be comfortable at all, since you might be feeling overheated on top of your other symptoms, too. But you’re probably getting super excited to meet baby, and we can’t blame you. Week 33 is a good time to make sure you have a safe car seat for baby -- go ahead and install it already. Sure, you might not see baby for another month, but if you have an early surprise arrival, that’s the one thing you really need to have ready.
How big is baby: The size of a Durian Fruit.
Weight gain/loss: I'm up 23 pounds.
Maternity clothes: Yes. Of course. But trying to be a little less frequent with straight up maternity clothes.
Stretch marks: Yep.
Sleep: Going much better than normal, but getting out of bed is starting to get harder and harder.
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: I just can't eat as much I used to... but it's going well, so far.
Exercise: Not really. But if chasing around a toddler counts, I'm doing a lot of that lately. He's on the move and isn't slowing down...
Gender: Yes, a baby girl!
Her Name: We have one, but we are keeping it a secret.
Movement: She moves a lot! She moves after my meals more than anything and I even think she's moving more than Coen did. It's been fun feeling her!
The belly: It's getting bigger.
What I'm loving: Dressing a solid growing baby. It's getting easier because it's just so big.
What I miss: Not being pregnant. I know I've said this before, but seriously, I'm looking forward to just not having a baby in my belly for a while. I love being pregnant, but I'm just ready for a break.
Symptoms: My back hurts, my hip hurts, my belly is tight but luckily I've noticed that my face is clearing up!
I actually visited Labor and Delivery last night... I have been experiencing headaches in the afternoons for the last week or so. I thought that it was weird, but I had pushed it off until yesterday. I had also been getting tracers in my vision, which I've had before when I was on Clomid, but thought that it was strange to get them while I was pregnant. I had pushed that off until yesterday, as well. The last straw was the fact that I had been experiencing Braxton hicks for the last 24 hours. When I called the nurse, they took a bit of time, but basically I ended up driving to the dr. Everything looked good but my urine did show that I was dehydrated. So... I brought the big gulp in today and I will continue to carry this big boy on my hip until she arrives.
The nursery: It's at a standstill. Period.
What's different/thesame this time: Nothing too specific. I'm having more physical issues this time, but I believe that's because I'm toting around Coen and I just didn't have much time to heal between pregnancies.
What I'm lookingforward to: Not being pregnant for a while.
Best moment of theweek: Just listening to Coen talk and yammer on about nothing. It's the cutest thing.
Last appointmentdetails: From yesterday... Drink more water and that the baby is looking great!
Next appointment: Next Thursday for my 34 week appointment!
