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.
