33 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 33 Weeks

Size of Baby: About 17 inches long and almost 5lbs.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 17lbs. Last week at my doc appointment, they said I gained 5 lbs in 2 weeks (a total of 20lbs)!!! Yikes! This morning when I weighed myself I had gone down a bit. Not sure why I went down maybe because the last couple days I've just been feeling a bit blah. Is it possible to have a little of the 1st trimester yuckies return the last part of the pregnancy?? Ok, it's not THAT bad, but just not feeling 100%.

Maternity Clothes: All pants and dresses are maternity now. Still wearing some regular shirts if they are long enough.

Gender: Still a surprise!!!! I go back and forth all the time on this. Some days I feel boy and some days I feel girl. Can't wait to find out!

Movement: Lots and lots!! Now it's not just kicks and pokes, but more RUMBLING! When I went in for my last appointment I had a sonogram and it's so funny because this baby and baby Cole are in the exact same position! Last time I was saying how it's so uncomfortable to sleep on my left side, and the lady told me that's because all the arms and legs are on the one side. Makes sense. It's just funny that both babies lay in there the same way.

Sleep: The first part of the night I sleep like a baby but then around 2:00am I'll typically be awake for an hour or so.

What I miss: I think about 4 times I week I'll say to Nick, "Know what I could really go for?" and he replies "A milkshake". He knows me too well....and someone better have a milkshake for me at the hospital after the baby is born!! Preferably a banana pudding shake from Chick Fil A!!

Cravings: Milkshakes, ice cream....sweets...everything I can't have :)

Symptoms: Mostly feeling pretty good, by 7:00 at night, I'm pretty exhausted though. Other than being tired and a little blah this week, I've been feeling great!
Best Moment of the week: Looking at our calendar and realizing we only have 5 weekends left! I cannot wait and hope the next 6 weeks fly by! I'm ready to not be pregnant anymore :)

I am now having to go to the doctor every week now. Every other week they will do a sonogram and then the in-between weeks they will do Non-Stress tests. It's just something they do with women who have high glucose levels. They just hook me up to monitors and I have to press a button every time I feel the baby move. Simple enough!

My last sonogram was great. My fluid levels are right where they should be, baby is in the 78% and she said that at this rate, baby will definitely be over 8lbs but under 9lbs.

I am starting to get a bit nervous about the delivery. Cole's labor/delivery were a piece of cake and I feel like "that can't happen twice, can it"? I never once felt any contractions till I got to the hospital with Cole so I keep wondering if I'll go into labor on my own, will the baby come early, late?? My family made some flight reservations to come down when the baby is born, so I hope they get down here in time. My parents, along with Rachel and Cameron are making the trip down and will probably stay about a week. I'm excited for them to be here and luckily we have a great friend that can change thier flights around if the baby comes early or late.

I sure hope the next 6 weeks go by fast!! :)
