33 Weeks

How Far Along:
33 weeks - January 19 - 25, 2014
Size Of Baby?

A Durian? Can't say I have ever seen or had one of these...

Baby is sleeping about 95% of the time. The umbilical cord is providing antibodies now that will help the baby fight infections once s/he is born. Baby is gaining 1/2 a pound a week now! Baby's bones are hardening.

Less than 50 days to go!! 
Maternity Clothes?
Ya we didn't venture into any regular clothes this week! My maternity jeans bands are no longer folded down, they need to be pulled right up. Gotta love those fancy lines.

Stretch Marks?
Still just a small one, but nothing really noticeable.
Team Green!

What the Doctor Had To Say:
Baby is doing great!!! Measuring ahead!! Placenta function is great! He did increase my blood pressure meds, I had no protein in my urine this week, so that was progress. His concerns being obviously pre-eclampsia, so he is keeping a close eye on things. Delivery at this point could be anytime between 36-39 weeks, but obviously there are too many variables to come up with a distinct plan at this point. He instructed me to watch for swelling, and other pre-eclampsia symptoms, and of course to take it easy! 
I am waking up more and more frequently, whether it be to use the bathroom, roll over or overall insomnia.

More and more bathroom breaks, as well as leg cramps and Charlie horses.

Baby Purchases This Week:
Foam for the bassinet. 

I ordered the the "You Are Loved" book collection by Nancy Tillman. I want to make sure the baby has the book On The Night You Were Born for when we are in the hospital. I also love the book Whereever You Are, My Love Will Find You. Love love love the author!!

The recliner for the nursery came in this week!! Now we can officially set up the room.

Made this Week:
M cut the foam for the bassinet - does that count? 
We weren't really home this week to accomplish many hands-on tasks. 

Cannot get enough water!
Baby is loving chocolate kisses!
Still working on eating smaller meals and avoiding garlic, as the heartburn/reflux is the worst after!
Baby is kicking up a storm still. Loves music.
Baby has officially found my rib cage! 

A lot better after seeing my doctor. A little reassurance goes a long way!! 
Braxton and Hicks contractions are becoming more and more frequent. Luckily they don't last and aren't overly painful. 
I definitely tire easy and am working really hard at taking it easy, as well as getting things ready for baby now, knowing it really could be anytime.
Charlie horses have been bad this week, but it is most likely caused my increase in blood pressure meds. 
Feet swelling.
Seeing sweet Baby V!! Baby is head down and in position, so we didn't get a picture unfortunately, but as long as baby stays put, I'm ok with it! 

Having everything we need for the baby in the house! This makes my nesting self very happy and feels like a huge accomplishment! We are still waiting for the mama-roo to come in, but I have got shipping notice!

M and I were away again in the middle of the week for his yearly drainage conference, so we were hotel staying again. We did have a formal dinner to attend:
I seriously felt large and in charge. I wasn't a fan of the dress, I would have preferred something black, although I got a lot of compliments, and M loved it and chose it (not that I had a lot of selection to choose from) I was not 100% comfortable in it. It fit fine, was just brighter than I wanted. 

We changed the nursery furniture around. Everything is washed, and in the process of finding a home! I also started packing the diaper bag, just need wipes (which I haven't bought yet) and burp clothes which I need to make still! 

Belly Button?
In, but it is getting flatter and flatter. I still don't think it will pop.
Wedding Rings?
I took them off on Thursday. After noticing my feet swelling, which could have just been from the long day before on my feet, I would have been upset to wake up and have hand swelling and have to get my rings cut off! Better safe than sorry. They may reappear, as they were still loose, but for now, until this resolves they will remain off! 

Best Moment of the Week?
Seeing sweet Baby V takes the win this week. Crazy to think we will be meeting soo soon!! I can't wait to find out what the baby is! The closer we get, the more I wonder. Crazy how much I love this little peanut already!! 

Crazy Pregnancy Moment:
The house key that wouldn't work.
I am pretty sure a combination of baby brain and not being able to leave the house for a month caused this one. But now that I am able to leave the house, I was having issues with my keys and was unable to lock the door. I told M my key was broken. Everyone else's key worked, just not mine! M finally took the time to check it and discovered I was using the front door key to try to unlock the side door. He then reminded me that I was missing part of my key chain that has the right key on it, along with the other house keys. I was soo confused. Then he found the keys, and quickly I remembered! Luckily my keys are all together now!!

You look great! I'm glad your doctor made you feel better after your appointment. Rest a lot! I was on bedrest the week before I was induced. It wasn't easy! You probably already are, but drink tons of water! I got charlie horses more when I wasn't hydrated enough.

I like your 33 week shirt!! I hear ya on the bright colors - black seems so much nicer to wear when you're going to be around a bunch of people you don't know!
