Durian Fruit- Week 33
This week you are the size of durian fruit! (I have NO clue what that is). You weigh 4.2 to 5.8 pounds and measure 17.2 to 18.7 inches crown to rump. This week you could grow up to an inch! You can now keep your eyes open when awake and you are starting to coordinate your breathing with sucking and swallowing. Your bones are also continuing to harden. You are still head down with a solid heartbeat. Your back is still out to the left, which is the ideal position. You like to body slam your back and butt against me. When we walk I can feel you moving around in the fluid- your butt slams against my hand. I wonder what it's like for you in there. I can imagine its pretty comfy- just floating- but do movements surprise you? You can respond to my voice and touch. Overall you are a pretty mellow baby and have made it easy on me! This week was pretty "chillax" with no work Monday as it was Memorial Day. Tuesday and Friday I covered boys tennis for work. Easy matches and gorgeous weather! I set up with the lawn chair and umbrella- I get hot much quicker than before being pregnant- all the extra blood flow! Tennis and soccer are the only sports left so Wednesday and Thursday were short work days- cannot complain about still working when work is that easy! Friday we met up with Stephen's plebe (freshman) year roommate, Josh, and his wife Lyndsey and son Jackson for a National's game. USMA was having an alumni special. We actually had some great seats in right field. You went to your first baseball game!
33.6 week bump at first (professional) baseball game. Stephen just LOVES taking photos ;)
How Far Along: 33 weeks
Total Weight Gain: 40ish pounds- gaining a steady 1lb a week this last month or so
Maternity Clothes: yep
Stretch Marks: your possess the super power of turning me into a tiger! ;)
Sleep: as Stephen says- pillow-mageddon! I sleep with a body pillow and 4 normal pillows- the positioning changes every night. Usually start on my side and wake up on my back- still getting some solid hours but wake feeling tired
Best Moment This Week: all good moments! Even though you were upset and kicked me for a good hour- it was cool when I told you that we were going swimming just to find out the pool is still closed. You know what swimming is and then were upset we didn't go- I love that you have a personality!
Miss Anything: being able to walk around the block without having to pee ;)
Movement: lots of body slams and some kicks into the ribs (not many thank you!)
Food Cravings: i wish! back to not wanting to eat- combination of your growing size and the warm weather
Aversions: ugh smells- always the smells :( Gender: boy Labor Signs: too early! Belly Button: in Wedding Rings: on-ish Exercise: walking Odin, yoga and other exercises to get ready for labor Mood: generally happy- like a normal person (not a crazy preggo lady) most of the time- tired! Looking Forward To: the Blessingway Meagan is hosting at the end of June :)
