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.
