How far along: 33 weeks and 6 days
Size of baby: 20-ish inches, approx 4.9 lbs (I have an ultrasound in a few weeks so they will be able to get a better idea of how big this boy is)
Gender: A sweet little boy
Movement: Lots of movement still going on. More rolls then kicks. And lots of action in my ribs.
Sleep: I have pretty much come to terms with the fact that sleep is just not getting better at this point. I am up and down all night to pee. I flip from side to side all night because my hips are sore. And then add in some acid reflux and pregnancy insomnia and you have a recipe for no sleep. I think this is just preparation for the lack of sleep we will have once baby arrives! So I consider it a training period of some sort. Tying to be positive here.
Maternity clothes: Yes. Lots of leggings and t-shirts.
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks are still going strong and actually getting stronger. The past week I have noticed when I get one its a bit hard to talk until it goes away. Other then that and the acid reflux at night I am feeling good!
Aversions: None really.
Cravings: Fruit. I have been wanting apples, oranges, melon and pretty much any fruit I can get my hands on. I am also thirsty all the time for ice water. I guess there are worse things to be craving at this point. Oh and the chocolate milk craving has returned. I allow myself one a day. I figure thats fair.
What I Miss: Nothing really the past few weeks.
Best moment this week: My baby shower! This past Saturday all of the people I love the most came together for what was one of the best days I have had in a long time. I felt so loved and blessed to have all these women in my life. Baby Nixon is spoiled rotten already and he isn't even here yet.
