Our Five Ring Circus: 33 Weeks

33 Weeks

Nugget may be here in about 4 weeks! Three different doctors have predicted that I'll deliver around 37 weeks based on my history, rate of dilation, and strength and frequency of these contractions. I'm giving it an extra week, though. ;) They predicted the same for Lexie, and I made it to 38 weeks with her. Either way, Nugget will be in my arms before I know it!

June 20, 2011

How far along:
33 weeks!

Total Weight Gained:
I've gained about 5 lbs back.

How big is baby? Nugget weighs just over 4 pounds and has passed the 17-inch mark.

How baby is growing: Nugget is rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his/her skeleton is hardening. The bones in Nugget's skull aren't fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap. babycenter.com

Maternity Clothes: I'm still wearing my regular clothes. I actually have to use a belt with a few pairs of pants (I lost some weight in my hips/butt), but I need to wear my longer shirts.

Sleep: It's difficult to find a comfortable position, so it takes me a while to fall asleep. Once I fall asleep, I sleep well until I wake up to pee (not bad-once or twice a night).

Best Pregnancy Moment of the Week:
The signs of Nugget's impending arrival showing up around the house! I also started to go through Dylan and Lexie's baby clothes, and I wish I could use everything!

: Nugget is very active. It definitely feels like I have a 4 pound baby dancing and kickboxing inside of me!

Food Cravings: I haven't had any cravings yet.

Food Aversions:
Macaroni & Cheese and soup. I normally love these foods, but haven't wanted them at all during this pregnancy!

Morning Sickness:
I still take Zofran everyday in an attempt to control the morning (all day) sickness.

It's a surprise! We've had the names picked out since I was about 6 weeks along, but we're starting to rethink the boy name.

Strong and frequent braxton hicks contractions, pressure, shortness of breath at times, difficulty finding a comfortable position, occasional bleeding gums while brushing teeth, very mild leg cramps, numbness in hip when Nugget presses against a nerve, tiredness, and I keep pulling my abdominal muscles.

Exercise: I try to walk 4-5 days a week, but I'm not allowed to do more than that.

What I miss:
Feeling comfortable and nausea-free!

What I'm looking forward to:
Finding out if Nugget is a boy or a girl! Not much longer!
