How far along: 33 Weeks
Maternity clothes: This is the point where I want to go into hiding. Mainly because I don’t have anything to wear so I walk around in pajama pants and Mike’s t shirts at home. I wish I could wear long flowy dresses every day of my life. I refuse to buy any more maternity clothes. Most of the stuff I have will fit post pregnancy, just not in the “about to bust” phase. I did manage to “squeeze” into a bathing suit this week and go swimming.
Stretch marks: No. Just dimples on my legs. Come on skin! Hang in there!!!
Sleep: I sleep mainly on my left side at night, but then eventually end up sleeping sitting up. I have to lay with one or both arms above my head to lengthen out my torso so I can actually breathe. I’ve had a hard time breathing this week…and it’s not from being out of shape. When just sitting and doing nothing, I feel like I am suffocating.
Best moment this week: I washed all of his clothes and set up his drawers with his pajamas and onesies. It’s neat to think he will be wearing all this stuff I have.
Raising his fist in fury!!
Miss anything: Like I said in the previous post, being pregnant in the summer is not fun when you like to play. I really do miss laying on my stomach. I love to lay on it and snuggle with a pillow. I will be looking forward to that! I really miss doing ab workouts at the gym too.
Morning sickness: Not really. I just have a few food aversions now where I don’t like being around certain foods like eggs and chicken.
Movement: He moves a lot! I love to see my stomach move like an ocean. He seems to move more during the day, which I am hoping is a good sign of things to come (meaning: he likes to sleep at night) !
Food cravings:I’m not as hungry as I was a couple of weeks ago. I think a lot of it is that I ran out of room. I eat big lunches and then really small dinners.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Eggs, leftover chicken, microwave meals, mushy apples
It is definitely a boy. He he
Have you started to show yet: I lie about my due date and tell people I only have a couple more weeks and they still give me a hard time!
Gender prediction: Boy. Did any of you guys check a Chinese calender for the gender of your baby? Mine was dead on for both. Not that I am into that stuff but my ultrasound tech told me about it and had me all curious when I was pregnant with Olivia.
Labor signs: I had my first set of Braxton-Hicks this week. Other than that, nothing.
Belly button in or out: If it could be out, it would.
Wedding rings on or off: Off.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Can I say sleepy? All I do is sleep lately. I’ve been taking some naps during the day and it’s been awesome.
Looking forward to: Taking time out the next five or six weekends to live it up before my life turns into baby jail again.
