How far along?: 33 weeks
How big is your baby?: the size of a honeydew melon. DO YOU KNOW HOW BIG THOSE ARE?! It looks like I swallowed a whole entire honeydew melon.
Total weight gain: up 14lbs total
Sex: sweet baby GIRL--Cheney Katherine
Maternity clothes: I am rotating between yoga capris, tank tops, & 3 maxi skirts on a regular basis. Lots of maternity shirts are getting a little too short. Not sure how I will get dressed over the next 6 weeks!
Sleep: Um, we have a certain tiny toddler who wakes up every.single.night around 3am. Not naming any names.........BUT, I'm certain he's trying to kill me via sleep deprivation.
Symptoms: Fingers are a little swollen and I am having a lot more Braxton Hicks contractions lately.
Movement: This girl is growing & strong. I can now feel certain body parts sticking really far out of my stomach and she definitely prefers to lay (and kick around) on my right side. She moves a lot during the day & right when I lay down at night.
Best moment this week: I turned 29 and got to eat a delicious Double Doozie cookie. It's my traditional birthday treat and worth every single calorie. We also got some more fun mail--monthly stickers & some sweet headbands!
Food cravings: Watermelon & frozen grapes. That is really all I want!
Belly button in or out: Still not all the way out, thank the Lord!
Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks contractions are happening more frequently & I feel like she just keeps getting lower. If I squat down, it feels like she may fall out. Let's hope that isn't the case!
What I miss: Sleeping all night long.
What I'm looking forward to: I go to the doctor this afternoon & start my every 2 week appointments. That means we are getting so close to meeting our baby!
