At 33 weeks
Total weight gain? Surprisingly 23lbs! I visited the midwives on Monday (they moved the appointment a day early for some reason) I was very surprised to see a six pound weight gain in only 2 weeks. Oh well, not much I can do about it!
Maternity clothes: I couldn't help it. I just ordered a few more things to take me to the end of the pregnancy. And I had to buy a cute dress for the baby shower, of course!
Stretch Marks? nothing new.
Sleep: Awesome. I have been going to bed around 8:30/9 pm and sleep until 6am. I still get up to pee once during the night, but have been quickly falling back to sleep. I think that the evening baths and increased exercise have helped. Yesterday my mother and our dogs went for a snowshoe walk in the woods and we were out for about an hour or more... which tired me out perfectly.
Miss anything? Wine with my Downton Abbey.
Movement: Yes, the baby girl is quite active. If she pushes on my belly and I push back, it tends to make her move more, which I think is great. I am probably denting her head or something, but I think it's pretty entertaining.
Food cravings? All of it.
Name? back to square one
Anything make you queasy or sick? nope
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks, hunger, sleepiness, achy back, nesting
Mood: Pretty good this week. I snuck some caffeinated tea into my tea pot, which greatly improved my mood and I am sure my co-workers were happy.
Labor signs? nope!
Looking forward to? Enjoying vacation. So much to do! I have completed 16 baby diapers (8 more to go) and look forward to cleaning the house. Also, the baby shower is in one week, hurray!
