33 weeks? Say whaaaat?!
I can’t believe how fast these last few weeks have gone by. These girls are gonna be here before I know it! Crazy!!
To be honest, I’m kinda hoping that they decide to venture out before my scheduled 38-week c-section. I’ve been in so much pain these days and I’ve definitely hit “the wall”. Baby A is destroying my poor cervix to the point where I was almost in tears the other night. I’m soooo ready to evict her from the premises. I hope they have a time-out chair in the OR, cos she is SO grounded.
I had my weekly specialist appointment yesterday and found out that Baby A miraculously gained 10 ounces since last week. Um… yeah… sure she did. Something tells me they mis-measured last time, way underestimating A’s weight. This time A weighed in at 3 lbs 13 oz and B was a solid 4 lb. They’re both continuing to do “practice breathing” & are as active as ever.
Once again, both girls were facing my back, making it impossible to see their little faces. The tech told me that they’ll likely remain in those positions until birth.
How far along? 33 weeks today!
Weight gain/loss: I didn’t notice what it was at the Dr. yesterday, but I weighed myself at home the other night & it was 170. Ouch.
Feeling: BIG. It’s so hard to get comfortable anywhere. Sitting, laying down, standing up… Everything hurts. My feet have gotten noticeably swollen & my ankles are MIA.
Maternity clothes? You know the deal… 2 dresses… blahblah…
Food cravings: Still want Thai food. And anything chocolate-y.
Movement? I’m pretty sure I’ve been feeling A having bouts of the hiccups. It’s very rhythmic & kind of annoying. But not as bad as when she tries to start a mosh pit on my cervix. B kicks me once in a while, but her position makes it a lot less noticeable/painful.
What I miss? Not feeling (and looking) like a beached whale, having ankles, sleep, sex, etc…
What I’m looking forward to: Getting these lil’ girls OUT!
