Week 33

Week 33

The bump: I usually start off low in the morning and a bit higher as the day goes on.

How far along: 33 weeks

How big is baby: From The Bump - The size of a durian. (Yeah, no idea what that is, but it looks like this crazy prickly thing that I would not want to come out of my body.) He weighs about 4.2 to 5.8 pounds and measures about 17.2 to 18.7 inches. And he may grow up to a full inch this week -- amazing. He's keeping his eyes open while awake. He's also starting to coordinate breathing with sucking and swallowing. His bones are hardening. And he going through (more) major brain development -- that's one smart baby!

Weight gain/loss: I'm up 2.4 pounds this week for a total of 22.4 pounds gained so far.

Stretch marks: My stretch marks have stretch marks. Like, even my belly button piercing scar (or giant hole I should say) has a stretch mark. WTF is up with that.

Sleep: I slept until NINE AM Saturday morning! It was glorious! I'm still sleeping like a champ, but it can still take me awhile to actually fall asleep.

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Peanut M&Ms and I may have made a slight detour to hit up a Fazoli's. (They closed the ones here)

Movement: This kid is all over the place. I scared a room full of people the other day when my belly suddenly jerked to one side.

What I'm loving: Getting closer to the end!

Symptoms: My cankles were epic this weekend due to an over 6 hour drive to Dallas, the concert, the shower, and a return drive of about 5. They're finally back to normalish today. I've also had this numbness/tingly sensation along my rib cage. It's like my ribs are falling asleep. It's real fun I tell you.

What I'm looking forward to: Hinchman Olympics are this weekend!

Best moment of the week: Despite the suffering from the drive I had so much fun this weekend. The concert was great as was the shower. It was fun to spend time with some friends I don't get to see as much anymore.

How I'm feeling: Still pretty good. I'm happy to have temps out of the 100 degree range.


  1. I know *exactly* what you're talking about with the belly button piercing. I have this "U" shaped scar that runs right through the middle of the piercing sight. That's my reward for having two large children.

    1. Right!? Isn't it punishment enough to have this other hole on top of your belly button, but THEN you get a stretch mark on it? Yes world. I got the memo. I was dumb in high school.
