What's Baby Up To?
- She's keeping her eyes open now while she's awake! :)
- She is starting to coordinate her breathing with her sucking and swallowing. (Such a multi-tasker!)
- Her bones are hardening.
- She's still going through major brain development.
- Her head circumference should jump up about a half an inch this week due to her remarkable brain growth.
She is still pretty wiggly, although it seems like she has calmed down a tad this week... probably running out of room for her shenanigans. She also gets the hiccups 2-3 times a day! But best of all she usually is pretty sweet and lets her mommy sleep uninterrupted at night! We'll see how long that lasts... ;)
Symptoms: NONE! My prescription strength heartburn medicine is a life saver. :) Sometimes I have trouble getting comfortable in bed, due to some upper back pain, but overall it's been a great week!
Cravings: Dark Chocolate covered pretzel thins from Trader Joes! Delicious!
Weight Gain: I'll spare you (and myself) the number on the scale. But, apparently baby is gaining weight more rapidly now, so for every pound I gain, half of it goes directly to her. So... really I suppose I'm just taking one for the team! ;)
She is definitely growing outward - I mostly just look like I swallowed a basketball, which is fine by me! Although... my belly button hole is getting dangerously smaller and smaller. Crossing my fingers that it'll stay put a little longer and not pop out!
33 Week Bump Pic:
Week 33, you've been good to me! To make it even better, I have another shower this weekend to look forward to! Life is good!
Bring on these last 7 weeks! :)
