Week 33

How far along: 33 weeks, 5 days

Size of Baby S: 17 in, a little over 4 lbs

Fruit/vegetable comparison (according to Baby Center): pineapple

Total weight gain: 19.5 lbs

Sleep: Good. Trying to focus on sleeping on my left side to help Madison get in the ideal birthing position and still having to get up to pee at least once in the night.

Movement: Lots still.

Unglamorous body changes: Really tired this week. So tired I just spontaneously burst into tears on Wednesday. And Friday. And almost today. Okay I am also hormonal! Poor Jason.  :-/

Also, I have been having a lot of BH contractions still, but today especially my stomach felt hard and rigid the whole day. I am going to ask the midwife about that at my appointment next week.

Maternity Clothes? Yes. The shirt featured in my weekly pictures isn't maternity and that's evident as the bottom has begun creeping up my belly. I might have to start wearing an undershirt with it soon!

Showing: Yes!

Food cravings: I stooped to a new low this week... I put American jar icing (betty crocker type) onto a girl scout cookie. Or rather, three of them. It was delicious!

What I miss: Same as usual - lunch meat, margarita, etc.

Anything making you queasy: No.

Strange experiences: Nothing too off the wall this week. However, Jason and I did take a yoga class as part of our birth course this weekend and also spent Friday night listening to information on homeopathy. The breathing techniques and positions lesson was good, but we aren't quite sold yet on the homeopathy. However, we figure it's not going to hurt so we may as well give it a try!

Milestones: Madison's skeleton is hardening, but the bones in the skull aren't fused together allowing her to easily (relative term there...) move through the birth canal.

Best moment this week: Starting to think about Madison's arrival and starting to read more about labor, delivery, and overall mental preparations for her entering our lives. We are also enjoying the birth course that we are taking and all of the information that it's providing as well as a place to ask questions.

Looking forward to: My midwife appointment next week to see how Madison is situated and make sure that everything is still looking good. We also have next Wednesday off for a Norwegian holiday and I am looking forward to doing some nursery stuff for Madison since this week has been too crazy to do anything.
