Please excuse the late preggy update and the no effort hair. This was the only photo Rob took of me that was half decent. The truth is I've been feeling totally burnt out these last few weeks and haven't been sleeping so well. I've also had a nasty chest infection which has only just started to get better. This last stretch of pregnancy is much harder than I was expecting but I know it's all gonna be worth it when I hold my baby girl for the first time.
|Our baby girl at 33 weeks gestation!!|
How far along? 34 weeks and 3 days.
Total weight gain: I haven't had a chance to weigh myself this past week but I feel like my bump is getting a bigger everyday. I'm feeling VERY pregnant and have even got the waddle going on.
Maternity clothes: No new ones.
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: Wish I could say that i'm sleeping better but i'm not. As I mentioned I've had a horrible chest infection and really bad cough. Rob even had to spend a few nights on the couch because my cough was keeping him up too. To top it off our baby girl is so active late at night and some of her movements are getting quite painful. It's almost impossible now to get comfortable and I can't stay in one position for very long cause of the pressure on my ribs from my belly. My gynecologist said that our baby girls head is already engaged which I am so happy about but it's putting sooo much pressure on my bladder. I feeling like such a whinger is this post but I much prefer it when bloggers are honest rather than sugar coating everything.
Best moment this week: I do my updates once every 2 weeks so the best moment last week was definitely my 33 week gynecologist appointment. It was very comforting to be reassured that everything is 100% on track with our baby girl.
The best moment this week was the amazing meal my talented husband cooked for me. (fillet steak with roast veges and gravy)
Miss anything? Sleep!
Movement: Lots of strong movement and sometimes it's quite painful.
Food cravings: I'm still craving oranges and strawberry yogurt. My new craving is blueberry gluten free pancakes.
Anything making you queasy or sick? no
Labor signs: Lots of strong braxton hicks which I have mistaken a few times for early labor.
Pressure on bladder
Shortness of breath
Mild back pain
Belly button in or out? Still half in half out. I am so surprised it hasn't popped yet.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Am still feeling really emotional and definitively know it's related to my pregnancy hormones. I'm also a little moody due to the lack of sleep. Thank goodness Robs taking it all like a champ.
Looking forward to: Attending an English speaking birthing class in a few weeks with my new American friend who's also pregnant.
