7 Weeks Till D-Day

Only 7 weeks till D-Day, 4 weeks until I'm full-term. Wow, it's getting so close. Still so hard to believe...but BOY AM I READY!

Not only am I ready for him to arrive buy I'm also ready to:
  • sleep on my stomach again
  • start losing weight instead of gaining
  • normal feet/ankles
  • Ability to take deep breaths or breathe for that matter
  • Ability to sleep on 1 pillow instead of 3
  • Go more than 2 hrs without peeing
  • The list could go on....

Don't get me wrong I'm not complaining...I've waited for this for a long time. But I think every pregnant woman just gets to that point.

What's going on at 33 weeks:
This week your baby may be anywhere between 17 to 19 inches in length and weigh more than four and a half pounds. At this stage in fetal development, your baby could grow a full inch more this week alone — especially if he or she has been on the shorter side. Weight gain can range from a third more growth to a full doubling before the big debut. The level of amniotic fluid in your uterus has reached its maximum at 33 weeks pregnant, making it likely that you have more baby than fluid now. That's one reason why you're probably feeling lots of nudges and pushes — there's less liquid to cushion the blows. If your uterine walls had eyes, here's what you'd see: your fetus acting more and more like a baby, with his or her eyes closing during sleep and opening while awake. And because those uterine walls are becoming thinner, more light penetrates the womb, helping your baby differentiate between day and night.
