How far along? 33 Weeks...and it just keeps getting closer...
How big is baby? According to thebump.com -- baby girl is the size of a durian. (WTF is that? It sounds like something from Back to the Future.) I'm really getting curious to see if this baby is gaining and getting large like Thaddeus did. We have another u/s at 36 weeks and I'm anxiously waiting. I feel like the belleh has just gotten huge so I'm hoping it's her (and not all me). ;)
Weight gain? 185 lbs. -- up 33.6 total. I'm not exactly thrilled with this number, but I went back and looked over my weight gain at this time with Thad and I think I'm just in for it. I gained a lot the last couple months with him as well. I know I've started retaining water like crazy so I'm hoping that is some of it. I really had hoped not to go over 35, but whatever, I guess I should realistically be looking at 40....oy. p.s. I don't love this phase...fat face, fat nose...yeah, not my favorite time of pregnancy.
Maternity clothes? Yes....and no. I'm still rocking one or two tshirts at night (and yes, they are pretty tight) and a pair here or there of sweats. This top isn't actually a maternity top, but I got it last time I was pregnant and it works well. Otherwise, yes. And I need new underwear I forget how your hips/butt widen out and well, the current undies aren't exactly comfortable.
Stretchmarks? Nothing new...yet. I told E I feel like they are about to start.
Sleep? I have total insomnia. I can't sleep at night. Literally, I'm crawling into bed at about 1:30 (if it's an early night) and then I'm up for an hour or so just trying to fall asleep and get comfortable. An hour later I'm up to pee. It's a vicious cycle I tell ya.
Best moment this week? Turning lemons into lemonade. With hub's car issues he's still here for another day so I'm soaking up the family of three time while I can. =)
Movement? Lots and lots, but it's sometimes painful. She especially hates if I try to lay on my right side to fall asleep. Literally, the amount of fighting she does to let me know is unreal. The rolls/punches/kicks/whatever they are, are just crazy.
Food cravings? Junk...still.
Water intake? I've been trying to get more in this week, but I'm still not doing great. =( Focus, Lib, focus.
Gender? Little miss.
Labor signs? Well...I actually think I may have gotten my first few BH the other night. I didn't get any with Thaddeus until I was 9 months along, but I'm guessing things just start a little earlier the second time around. It's crazy to think I could be having contractions (of any kind) at this point. I am not ready for this little girl to be here...she needs to stay put until Feb. 25 (yes, three days after my EDD)!
Belly button in or out? Flat, but turning out. I believe I will officially "pop" this time. (And it grosses me out! I can't stand touching it/feeling it/etc. I don't know why, but it's creeps me out big time!
What I miss? My skinny(er) face....not swelling...bending over....being able to wipe like a normal person. You know, the basics. ;)
What I am looking forward to? Nesting! Hehe...I have had some major urges to purge the last couple days. The only downside? A lot of our crap is in storage right now so I'll have to make due with purging clothes from my dresser...that sounds good, right? Oh and I ordered little miss's bedding last night! I can't wait to get that so I can start working on some crafts for her room (you know, the room we don't have right now and will hopefully have in TX...lol).
