Pregnancy Journal – 33 Weeks Pregnant (and FINALLY a belly shot!)

Pregnancy brain in full effect here…I’ve had to look at my preggo app many times in the past few days because for some reason I had it in my mind I was about to be 34 weeks pregnant instead of 33! LOL It was Christmas so there was a lot going on…right? That’s my excuse?! haha!

About Baby This Week: (from BabyCenter.com) This week your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds and has passed the 17-inch mark (about the size of a pineapple). He’s rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his skeleton is hardening. The bones in his skull aren’t fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for him to fit through the birth canal. (The pressure on the head during birth is so intense that many babies are born with a conehead-like appearance.) These bones don’t entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as his brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.

I finally had hubby take a belly shot – 33 weeks pregnant and looking huge!!! 😉 I can’t believe I’m posting this…I look tired, I have no make-up on or anything. Ugh!!!

33 Weeks Pregnant Belly Shot
How am I feeling? The back pain continues. That’s it for that topic this week. lol I’m still tired, but I managed to stay up late a few nights this past week! Woohoo!!! It was kinda nice! haha! Heartburn is so, so, so bad. Really bad at night but I get it throughout the day, too. I keep joking that this baby better come out with braids of long, long hair!! lol My hips have been hurting too but overall I’m doing ok.

Food Cravings/Aversions: I’ve still been on my milk kick. Yes, I NEED milk daily. I also had a craving for pizza from Pizza Hut this weekend. That’s about it.

Sleep: I wake up 2-3 times to go to the bathroom. I wake up when I turn because of the back pain and hip pain. In between waking I sleep well.

Baby’s Movement: She still seems to be a night baby…I am hoping that’s not the case when she arrives! She moves the most in the late evening and over night periods. She’s had the hiccups a few times lately too!

Weight: I don’t know how this happened, but with Christmas being this past week I actually lost 2 pounds. Overall weight gain: 3 pounds.

Next Appointment: I am going every two weeks now so it will be later this week.

What happened this week? Christmas!!!  I love Christmas and it was extra fun this year with LA and Addy really getting into it! Christmas Eve we spent time decorating cookies and watching movies. It was so special! Christmas day was full of family and fun and I was exhausted afterwards, but it was great! I enjoyed my time off of work although I still haven’t gotten much done around the house. 🙁

Something that upset me: Nothing that stands out…other than my typical hormones and getting frustrated once in a while.

Something I am looking forward to: Having three days off of work this week!!! WOOHOO!!!

Boy or Girl? Those strong feelings I had early on about gender proved to be right!!! We’re having a girl!!!!!!!!

Things I am doing to prepare: I actually got some new pajamas for the hospital!! I love them and hope I can save them for February! lol I want to wear them now!

Countdown: I’m at 33 weeks pregnant, so 7 weeks to go if we go to 40 weeks!
