How far along: 33 weeks and 2 days
Baby’s size: Baby boy is officially over 4 pounds, 4.5 to be exact. Well, let me rephrase….that is the approximate weight of kiddos this age. His length is holding steady around 19-20 inches and will remain around there until birth. Which is really good since any more length would mean permanent suffocation for me and some broken ribs. :/
Sleep: Pain, pain and more pain. That’s all there is to say!
Best moment this week: We had a pretty warm week for the most part and got to enjoy soaking up lots of sunshine. Unfortunately another yucky cold front is coming in but it should be short lived…..hopefully!!
Worst moment of the week: Had a really bad day on Saturday. Hormones were crazy, back pain was intense and I had about 4 random crying fits. It was awful and I was ready to have it over with!
Movement: His movements the past couple of days have decreased quite a bit because he is officially a little squeezed into his uterine space. He is still active in the morning and evening and whenever I touch or rub my belly he will respond but he definitely isn’t nearly as active as he has been the past 4 months. Just another sign we are getting closer!!
Cravings: Yesterday, it was definitely chocolate…..I’m sure that had nothing to do with my hormones and crying fits. Haha! Still steadily loving fruit which gets riper and riper every week….yay! I have also had a strange craving for lemonade but haven’t satisfied that one yet. I think it might be all the time in the sunshine causing that one. Otherwise, I am mainly eating small meals now several times a day since my stomach is squished and can’t hold very much in one sitting. I ate a salad the other day and you would have thought I had gone 5 rounds with a buffet. I wasn’t sure I could walk afterwards I felt so full. It’s a little ridiculous!
Missing Anything: Walking without pelvic pain, being able to see my toes when I put on shoes, being able to easily snuggle with my other boys and again coffee! However, as we draw towards the end I also know that I’m going to miss this big belly and these sweet little kicks and punches and just the overall experience of carrying a baby. So I figure a little bit of discomfort is a small price to pay for a few months.
Queasy or sick: Nada! Still feeling pretty in control of my food once it hits my stomach. LOL
Looking forward to: Logan has a patriotic concert on Thursday night which he has been vigorously preparing for for many weeks now. He is soooo excited and is all things patriotic at the moment. He has come home and taught Mason all the songs so I will hear them at night before bed just singing up a storm. It’s very cute! Plus, I take Mason Man for his Kindergarten screening this week. He is very excited but I am of course having mixed feelings. I can’t believe he will be in Kindergarten in just a few short months!! Sigh….it’s gonna be a rough day when I put him on that bus in August!!
Baby item of the week: Nothing new this week. I pretty much have all the decor and accessories for the nursery which should be done this week before Easter. The rest of the actual baby stuff should be taken care of at my upcoming baby shower and after that.
Doctor Appointment Update: Went to the doctor on Tuesday and am measuring 2 weeks ahead. My doctor does not think he will be a huge baby since my other two were pretty small but she said he could be the biggest and/or he might come early. When you get to this point the news that he might come one or two weeks early is like winning the lottery, however, babies are extremely unpredictable so I’m definitely not going to put any money on it. I want him to come when he isready and be a healthy little guy chunky or otherwise! 🙂
Have a great week everyone!
See ya next time!
