How far along? 33 weeks 6 days
Total weight gain/loss: Hi, we’re skipping this question 🙂
How big is baby? Your baby’s the size of a durian! She weighs about 4.2 to 5.8 pounds and measures about 17.2 to 18.7 inches. And she may grow up to a full inch this week — amazing.
- She’s keeping her eyes open while awake.
- She’s also starting to coordinate breathing with sucking and swallowing.
- Her bones are hardening.
- And she going through (more) major brain development — that’s one smart baby!
Maternity Clothes? So we had our baby shower this last weekend and I actually used the comment, I think I’ll wear something that fits… lol
Stretch Marks? Oh geez. I can’t even begin to describe. It kind of makes me sad, but I keep remembering those quotes I found.
Best moment this week? Last Thursday we had an ultrasound and got to see little miss thing. Holy cow has she changed! Plus we got to hear her heart beat. We’re looking at about 130 beats per minute. Then all the love and joy that we felt through the baby shower!
Movement? Oh baby girl moves on her own terms. But when someone goes to feel her she immediately stops. It’s the funniest thing.
Food Cravings/Aversions? Um… I’m just hungry all the time.
What I miss: I read that carpel tunnel can come during this time. It should fix itself after she’s born. I don’t know if I’d term it carpel tunnel but my hands ache a lot. My feet swell, I miss my normal feet :). I miss being able to stand for long periods without my back hurting. I mean I can stand for long periods of times but my back aches. I miss getting up out of a chair and immediately being able to walk. I sometimes have to stable myself to make sure I don’t fall. Oh and putting on pants (underwear) putting weight on my left leg is extremely difficult. It’s weird but baby girl hangs out on my right hip so maybe that has something to do with it??
What I’m looking forward to: Meeting this little girl I’ve been growing for 9 months.
Nausea/Vomiting? I’ve been good here! Yey!
Labor signs? I still don’t know what I”m looking for here.
Gender? We have had them verify it’s a girl 4 different times. I’d say she’s a girl 🙂
Belly Button in or out? Still looks like a parking cone. I get laughs when I tell people this. Wes even threatened to put one outside my house….
Wedding rings on or off? I had my ring on Saturday when we worked on maternity photos. (Pregnancy brain kicked in and I typed engagement. Yup I’ve been married just shy of 4 years). I love my rings! I miss them so much!
Sleep? Oh I sleep hard but wake up often to turn over and I ache.
Weekly Wisdom: I don’t really know if this is where it falls but there really isn’t an area so it’s going here. I gave hubby a hug this week and little girl kicked him. It was hilarious. Also we got Hank the Cow Dog this week and for as many pictures as I’ve taken of this 6 week old puppy, I can only imagine how I’ll be when baby girl gets here!
Due Date: Thursday June 26, 2014 was what we originally thought. Now we’re told June 28 but she’s measuring about a week ahead of schedule… by golly I do believe she’ll come when she wants :).
