33 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 33 Weeks
Wow, I can't believe I'm getting so close. February 28th will be here before I know it.

Stretch marks/belly button: No new ones (just one's from the last pregnancy) & the belly button popped this time. I find this so hard to believe being I've gained so much less & it never popped with him

Size of baby: 19 inches & 4 1/2 lbs

Cravings: salads, rice krispy treats, salty things
Maternity Clothes: Oh yes
Gender: GIRL (Emma Louise)!

Movement: Yes, I love it! She is moving a lot. She is a very active baby who loves to move all night long...a little worried about that. Lol
What I miss:  Being able to get up & down easily. Touching my toes or seeing them for that matter. Normal ankles. Not getting short of breath.

Sleep:  It's definitely much harder to get comfortable. I can only sleep on my left side with a pillow. At least 1 day a week I suffer from insomnia & lay awake for hours.
Symptoms: Frequent potty breaks, back pain, fatigue, Braxton Hicks, feet/ankle swelling (much better than being pregnant in the summer though) & my newest is shortness of breath especially when I lie down.

It was a little sad this week when a patient I was discharging asked if I was ok being I was short of breath, lol.  Having a cold doesn't help though.

Best Moment This Week: Seeing Emma's bedding in person!!  I love it.

What I am looking forward to: My 33 week appointment this week.
