33 Weeks

How far along?: 33 Weeks
Baby's size: BK is the size of a jimaca and/or a durian fruit... what the heck are those??  Mom was able to find a jicama at Weis, thankfully!  In real news, when we were at the specialist this week, they measured him at 5 pounds, 3 ounces
Total weight gain/loss: Up to 23
Stretch marks?: Found one under my belly when I was recording him moving all around :-(  That was a very sad day
Sleep?: If I can go three hours without needing to pee, I consider it successful.  It's pretty exhausting though!
Maternity clothes?: Of course
Best moment this week: Getting our pictures back from Beth!  Here are some of them!  We are obsessed!!!
Worst Moment: Finding out my placenta is only 2 cm away from my cervix and that's the minimum needed to deliver normally.  They were hoping for more of a move
Symptoms: Backaches and acid, the usual
Cravings?: I had my first meltdown... over fried pickles.  I guess making it almost 34 weeks before the first one is pretty good
Miss Anything?: Nothing comes to mind
Movement: He seems to be restless, always rolling around trying to get comfortable... or that is what I think he's doing.  Some of my students felt his hiccups this week too
Anything making you queasy or sick?: Just smell sensitivity of stinky 8th graders sometimes after gym class ;-)
Gender: B-O-Y!!!
What is baby up to?: From What to Expect When You're Expecting: "Your baby is still gaining weight (about half a pound a week), and he could grow up to another full inch this week. With that much baby inside your uterus, your amniotic-fluid level has maxed out, which explains why some of his pokes and kicks feel pretty sharp these days. (There's less fluid to cushion the blows.) Antibodies are being passed from you to your little one as he continues to develop her own fetal immune system, which will come in handy once he's outside the womb and fending off all sorts of germs."
