33 Week update
Today I am exactly 33 weeks pregnant. My due date is still 11-12-13, although I am measuring 2 weeks ahead of schedule, just like I did with Leigha. I started out weighing 235, and at my last appointment a week ago, she said I weighed 247, 12 pound weight gain...I'm pretty happy with that.
Cravings: Fresh foods. Fruit and some veggies, mainly soybeans, but salads also top the list as well. OH and steak..I have been CRAVING steak like no body's business
Aversions: No fried foods. I feel gross after I eat them. I've never experienced that before so this is new to me. Blake is trying to make me healthier LOL. I hope I can continue it after he is born.
Symptoms: Pain. Everything hurts. I think I pulled my hip a few weeks back trying to get out of bed and while it feels better, it hurts really badly if i lay on it for too long so sleeping isnt the greatest. Basically though my entire body aches. You know when you have the flu and your bones ache...that's what I feel like right now, but without the sickness. Tylenol is my friend when it gets super bad.
I am loving: That he is moving so much! I was laying in bed the other day and he was kicking up a storm and me was practically shaking my entire body. I have to keep remembering that this will more than likely be my last pregnancy ever so I am trying to remember or document every single movement on video.....haven't gotten very much footage, but I'm getting some.
Sleep: Is ok. I still wake up every morning about 2 am...well 2:34 to be exact. I can't tell you how many times in the last 3 weeks I've seen that time on my bedside clock. It seems to be the time when the Tylenol and Zantac stop working at their best. Unisom is my friend 2-3 times a week because I just need the help that a 1/2 pill gives me to get a little extra rest and help me fall back to sleep when I get up.
I miss: Feeling good. These days I'm in pain or I can't catch my breath, or I'm tired. I just want to feel normal again.
I am looking forward to: Starting to paint his room. I am going to do that this week with Richards help because he needs to move some pretty big pieces of furniture so I can paint behind him. Thankfully I don't have much to paint because the room is mostly brown already and that is the big color that we are using for his room. I do have to paint a blue wall and green wall though and it will be set.
I'm spazzing about: Thinking that he will come early. My doctor told me at my last appointment that if I were to go into labor at 34 weeks (October 1) that she won't stop it, that she will let me deliver. This FREAKED me out....In a week I could have a baby. Granted I'm not showing any signs of pre-term labor, other than a scare that sent me to L&D 3 weeks ago due to bleeding and contractions, but I just have a feeling he will be here sooner rather than later.
Best moment this week: Being able to vacuum the floor in his room. Weird I know, but the room he will live in has been used as a storage room so it was FULL of boxes of crap. To me it means we are making progress.
Milestones: 1 week away from potentially having a baby. ZOMG!
Movement: Painful and consistent and strong!
It's a...: Boy named Blake
Exercise: Non existent. I know that it would probably help my pain if I could actually manage to do some exercises, but I just can't. Getting up to chase Leigha around is getting really difficult and painful, but I have to do what I have to do.
Diet: Lots of fruits and meat.
Goals for the upcoming week: As always, drink more water.
