How Far Along: 33 weeks 5 days
Weight Gain: I lost a pound this week. I’ve been really surprised with my weight during this pregnancy. I gained more with Ledger than I have this time around.
Symptoms: Passed another kidney stone. Exhaustion. The pressure on my pelvis continues to increase each week, and all I want to do is sit or lay. My stomach has become super heavy. Getting ready for the day has become my workout. Contractions continue to get harder.
Sleep: As soon as I lay down either a kicking match begins or a dance party… I’m guessing it’s a kicking match I’ve gotten a little more sleep after passing the kidney stone.
Favorite Moment: Having my Grandma and a lady from our ward stop by to drop off fruit for me. I can’t really walk through the grocery store anymore, so I went a little crazy over the strawberries and grapes.
Preparation: Diaper bag, car seats, and stroller arrived this week, and for the most part I’m pretty much packed and ready for the hospital. We are still looking for a car, I'm trying to convince Pat that a mini van would really be helpful with 3 kids in car seats, even if they aren’t as attractive as an SUV.
Miss Anything? Being able to let Ledger sit on my lap, I can tell he misses doing things with me. I told Pat the other night I can’t wait to be able to take him on a little walk, cuddle, or wrestle with him in about a month.
Cravings: Pina Colada smoothie
Maternity Clothes: The choices in my closet are dwindling, and I don’t want to spend money on the last few weeks. So if you see me around, I’ll probably be wearing the same outfit.
I’m now measuring 41 weeks pregnant. (compared to carrying one baby) The nurse said it best when she said, “You’re officially baked!”
