This was actually taken at 32 weeks, but whatever...
How far along? 33 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: Still around 25lbs.
Maternity clothes? Yep
Stretch marks? Got 'em
Sleep: Every time I wake up to use the bathroom, I can't seem to go back to sleep for at least an hour...:(
Best moment this week: Getting to spend the weekend with Mike's parents. They came down on Saturday and just left this morning. We always have alot of fun with them and the kids are always sad to see them go. Just a few more years, and they will be moving about an hour and a half away!!! We can't wait!
Movement: It honestly HURTS when he moves sometimes. I've never felt such hard, sharp, painful movements with any of my other pregnancies. I'm gonna ask my dr. at my next appt. if it could mean that my fluid is low.
Food cravings: I've been eating alot of mushrooms lately. :)
Gender: I'm assuming he's still a boy...should I just keep this answer every week? I'm pretty sure he won't morph into a girl! ;)
Labor Signs: A few painful contractions here and there still.
Belly button in or out? Flat
What I miss: Nothing
What I am looking forward to: I'm really looking forward to the 2 day stay at the hotel, uh, I mean hospital! :)
Weekly wisdom: ?
Milestones: Every day is a milestone considering how tired I've been feeling lately.
How your baby's growing:
This week your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds (heft a pineapple) and has passed the 17-inch mark. He's rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his skeleton is hardening. The bones in his skull aren't fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for him to fit through the birth canal. (The pressure on the head during birth is so intense that many babies are born with a conehead-like appearance.) These bones don't entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as his brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.
