33 Weeks Pregnant
We are 33 Weeks Pregnant. This is crazy. So crazy. He will be here is 7 Weeks or less.
On Saturday...I woke up screaming almost crying with a HUGE charlie horse...luckily Hubby knew exactly what was going on as I was stuffing my face into my pillow trying not to cry...he was able to make it go away pretty quick by rubbing my leg and straightening my leg/foot. Holy Moly did that hurt. I definitely boosted my water intake the next day...and my friend told me to eat grapefruit, so I went out and bought a bunch...I actually love grapefruit anyways. Someone also said Banana's...it's a good thing I have been craving fruit lately...cause I have no problem eating more of them. OMG watermelon is so freakin good these days.
I decided to get our Master Bedroom cleaned up....there were dust bunnies all under our bed and behind furniture. We have started to notice that the Condo we live in is very dusty. There is a main road just outside of our house and I am sure those huge log trucks don't help the dust much at all...so this is something I have been having to adjust to. Definitely gonna be sure to do a dust/sweep at least every Week or two from now on. So I moved all of our furniture around...and made a little "Nursury Corner" for this little dude. I even hung up the Paper cranes that were sitting there for about a month. I will post pictures of a tour of our Bedroom once we get it finished completely...just needs a few little final touches as well as some more organization stuff and it will be done.
I don't know if I mentioned this in the last post or not...but I started a Pinterest Board of recipes I want to make before Baby comes (of things that I can prep now and freeze) and then I also made a board for after Baby comes...and that is basically a board of healthy recipes. I am not kidding when I say that I am more than excited for this little man to come so that I can get my body back. No more being lazy like the last time I squeezed out a Baby...this time No Mr. Nice Mom...I am going to be the biggest hard a...s...s on myself...healthy eats after he arrives. Then when the Doctor gives me the 'Ok" to start adding more fitness than I will do that. But I think being prepared and making lists and recipes will help out with getting right on track a nice and healthy way. So this Weekend as well as the next few weeks to come I will be making more meals to freeze...and more lists of weekly meals I want to follow...snack ideas and all that jazz.
I am so excited for our Maternity Photoshoot on Saturday though...My Mom sent me a package and it arrived Today...in it was a Metis Sash, so stoked to wrap it around my pregnant belly and get pictures...then wrap it around my newborn Son and get pictures later. Love.
How is Mama doing? Well I am doing great. Definitely more energy now...and more and more on my mind of things to get done around here. Braxton Hicks are definitely getting more and more often everyday. I would say 1-10 ish in a day is pretty normal this time. Sometimes they are so painful. Mostly just uncomfortable is all. He is moving all the time, he gets hiccups a few times a day, He sits on my blatter...pretty much most of the day. I am starting to feel more and more pressure at times, and I do get a little worried when it is hard to walk because there is so much pressure. I'll definitely need to bring it up with the Doc. My Feet are pretty swollen by the end of the day, especially when I have been on them all day (another thing I will mention to the Doc) Other than all those yucky symptoms, I am loving pregnancy and am so Thankful that I get to experience this again. I definitely stop and enjoy the moments of his movements, or his little hiccups. I cannot believe how fast the time is going.
How Big is Baby for Week 33? He is the size of a Durian Fruit. Weighing in at about 4.2-5.8 lbs and measuring at about 17.2-18.7 inches. Yikes. It is crazy to think that Isaiah was just a few ounces more than that and pretty much that length...
