33 Weeks

May 22, 2009 Sarah Coggins

How far along? 33 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: Added one pound since last week

Maternity clothes? Absolutely. Although, on Sunday when we went to a Durham Bulls baseball game, the weather was chilly enough to require coats. I don’t have any maternity ones since I assumed I be at my biggest during warmer months. What I do have will zip up, but not comfortably so I took a blanket to lay on the front of me.

Stretch marks? Still not seeing any. *knock on wood*

Sleep: Fairly well. I haven’t been able to sleep on my right side all week though. Every time I lay on it, I feel as though I strain to breathe. I’ve been trying to sleep on my left only and find myself waking up on my back – completely comfortable and able to breathe fine.

Best moment this week: My massage last Friday. I always enjoy them, but they have been even better as my pregnancy has progressed – partly just being able to lay on my stomach for a bit and shift all that weight & pressure. Amazing the instant difference that makes in my lower back and hips.

Movement: Very active during the day. This week it’s felt as though he trying to break out with all the pushing he’s been doing on my belly. I can look down and watch my belly go from a nice circular shape to a weird oblong one and then quickly change again.

Food cravings: I’ve been on a cheese kick this week.

Labor Signs: None.

Belly Button in or out? Still in, but almost completely flat.

Milestones: I think I learned what the dreaded round ligament pain is. Definitely not fun.

Energy Level: Dropped a little. I noticed that I’m tired more easily. We tried to take a walk on Tuesday evening. I had been able to walk for 30 minutes, but managed just 20 that particular day. Last night I easily completed my 60 minute prenatal water aerobics class though. By bedtime I was exhausted and the little guy was full of energy – kicking like crazy.

    Great list, Sarah! It's so fun to read how you're experiencing your pregnancy. It's such a special and amazing time!

    I am so there with the movement too! Cameron feels like he's trying to claw his way out. I kind of feel bad for him because he's so cramped in there.

    I think I also dropped a little bit this week! He still has his foot in my ribs, you know, but it doesn't feel like he's shoved up as far. :)

    Glad you are doing so well during your pregnancy. Hopefully the rest of the time you feel just as good.
