33 Weeks

Posted Apr 03 2013 10:07pm

Whoa, baby. Mama’s gettin' big!

33 weeks

And I can certainly feel it! This week hasn’t been too exciting, but baby Y has started to get the hiccups which is just too cute (except at 4am). I had my 32 week check-up on Wednesday. She said things are looking good. Baby is measuring a few days ahead (I was 32 weeks 4 days and she’s measuring just over 33 weeks) and all my stats look great. Always good news to hear that! Other than that things have been low-key. Tony has been working long hours so it’s just been us girls for the most part this week.


The weather finally cleared up by the end of the week so I’ve been much better about getting some walking in. I am pretty sure that will be my exercise for the remainder of my pregnancy (which is only about 6 weeks! EEK!). I might make it to a prenatal yoga class or two, but I’m not 100% sure. The studio I was going to changed yoga instructors for the prenatal class, and I’m not really down with the new one, so we’ll see if I go back. Although a big motivation for me is some lower-back pain relief and the promise of helping with labor. Maybe I’ll go once a week instead of twice? It’s just too expensive to attend and not enjoy it. Ya feel me?

Yesterday Tony and I went to couples breastfeeding class. While I know he wasn’t exactly looking forward to going, he put on a happy face and was a trooper about it! The class was 3 hours and we both felt like we left with a lot of good information.


He’s a pro at the cradle hold Smile.

The stats:

33 weeks (2)

How far along? 33 weeks + 1 day
Total weight gain: We’ve reach double digits, at my last appointment I had officially gained 10lbs.
Symptoms: general uncomfortable-ness. 
Stretch marks? So far so good.
Sleep: Ohhh, not so great this week. I’m waking up at least once a night.
Best moment this week: Feeling baby Y’s hiccups. So stinkin’ cute! Oh, and I had a prenatal massage that was amazing.
Miss Anything? Being comfortable, sleeping on my stomach, wine.
Movement: Hiccups, stretches, poking out a heel/elbow/shoulder.
Food cravings: Thin mints, chips and fruit.
Anything making you queasy or sick: I almost threw up today for no apparent reason. I had a coffee and haven’t had one in a long time, so I think that was it. Might be done having coffee until after she comes.
Exercise: Walks!
Gender: Girl
Labor Signs: Nope
Belly Button in or out? Still and innie, but we are definitely shallowing out.
Wedding rings on or off? On, but my fingers and toes are starting to swell at different points in the day and I have to take them off. Other times they are loose. Weird.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: The baby coming. Is it too early for that?

Hope y’all had a happy Easter!
