How far along? 33 weeks
Baby's size? about 17-19 inches, over 4 lbs (around 4.5 lbs?). The size of a Durian Fruit (whatever that is..) or the size of a pineapple (again?). These baby websites really need to get together and agree on one food item for each week...
Total weight gain: 34 lbs- I'm really just adding a pound a week like the books say! Maternity clothes? Yep! And now I have more church clothes options (Thanks Pamela!)
Sleep: It's getting harder to get comfortable to fall asleep, even with my faithful wormy (i.e. body pillow). I'm also not allowed to eat sugar in the evenings- it totally stimulates the baby and me! So we end up with a kicking baby and fully awake mama, which doesn't equal sleep. So far, taking out the evening sugar has really helped!
Best moment(s) this past week: My cooking date with Nathan and throwing a baby shower for Allison (with the help of the lovely Lara- thank goodness! it's a lot of work for being 7 months pregnant :o)- yay for having baby boys close to each other! Also, yay for yummy food!
Miss Anything? Eating raw cookie dough! Cookies are delicious, but I'm totally having my sister-in-law bring me cookie dough to the hospital! :o)
Movement: Yep! We had fun last night putting our cell phone on my stomach and watching it move while we were talking to my parents on speaker phone :o)
Anything making you queasy or sick: A day with too much sugar and too much greasy food... it wasn't pregnancy sick, more like "I just ate a bunch of crap and my body is mad at me" kind of sick. Blah. Good lesson to remember- just because you're pregnant, doesn't mean that eating whatever you want is a good idea. Gotta still eat healthy!
Cravings: Orange juice! Man, I wanted it bad yesterday... good thing we have leftover bottles from the baby shower in the fridge!
Labor Signs: Still some Braxton Hicks, or at least what I think is Braxton Hicks... I feel like the internets, books, birthing class, and OBGYN all have different descriptions of what a contraction feels like...
Symptoms: Having lower back/ hip pain that makes walking a bit hard. The best cure so far- sitting on a heat bad!Belly Button in or out? Mostly in... it's not out until it's 100% out! :o)
Wedding rings on or off? Off, but still loving my replacement pearl ring!Happy or Moody most of the time: More happy this week! I was good at asking for help this week, which really helped keep the moodiness away. Yay for sweet husbands!
Looking forward to: Swimming, like every week :o) My baby shower next week! So excited! (and if you didn't get an invite, look in your email junk box or contact me- I may have an old address for you, but you're still welcome to come celebrate!)
