Baby Guster is 33 weeks and six days and the size of a honeydew. Isn’t that cute?
Here’s what Baby Guster has been up to this week:
- Baby is gaining about a half a pound a week! (Whoa!!) Annnd, could grow up to another full inch this week alone.
- Antibodies are being passed between mom and baby so it is nice and strong when it comes into the world.
And here’s what’s been happening with me this past week:
Maternity Clothes: I snagged a new set of pjs for my growing belly. All of my shirts (regular) are starting to hike up!
Workouts: Such a slow week. I was completely exhausted and after finding out that baby is growing a half a pound and up to an inch this week alone, I understand why! Baby making is a lot of work. Add in lots of travel and my energy and motivation has been so low. But I did get in the Tone It Up HIIT, some time on the elliptical, weights and a little cross training.
Stretch marks? Nope and no real line either.
Symptoms: No real symptoms, just a bit of a sore back and a ton of exhaustion. I napped every day and slept almost all day Wednesday.
Sleep: Still sleeping like a rock star! This is one thing that I have been so lucky with through my entire pregnancy. I’ve had maybe a half dozen bad nights total.
Movement: Lots!! Baby G used to move while I was sitting still, but now it just goes all the time.
Best Moment this Week: Setting up the closet in the nursery and taking naps. I’m not going to lie, I am loving all of the rest. I feel like I might not see this kind of rest for a while after Baby G’s arrival.
Food Cravings: None. I am actually kind of disapointed that I have not craved anything through this whole pregnancy. Isn’t that part of the deal?
On Tuesday night I looked at Phil and said, “Pink lemonade sounds so good!” He asked me if I wanted any and I said no. It just sounded good, I didn’t actually want it. Boring.
Miss Anything? Last week I said no, this week I say YESSS! I miss my stomach. It seems like one week I love the belly bump and then the next week I am ready to see my body again.
Belly Button In or Out? Completely flat with a little dimple out on the top. I tell everyone that Baby G is smiling.
Happy or Moody Most of the Time: Happy but a bit more mood swings this week. As I said with the sleep, I think I was just really tired this week. Maybe baby was growing??
New Baby Items: Our closet, a few odds and ends. I can’t wait to do a nursery tour in a few weeks!!
Looking Forward To: A weekend relaxing with my friends.
Random Thoughts and Musings: I am ready for this kid to arrive. I feel like I have experienced pregnancy, the room is 90% ready, we have done all we can do to be ready. Come on final stretch, I hope it flies by!!
When did you start to “really feel pregnant?” Was it the first kicks?When your belly got a certain size?
