Baby Bump - 33 weeks
It's been so long since I've updated that I don't know where to start. Is this picture enough? They say a picture is worth a thousand words...
OK, so here is a brief update: Next Friday is my last day at work before I start my maternity leave. Assuming Batman cooperates, I'll have 5 weeks off from work before she is due so that I can take care of things like getting a crib, washing her clothes, picking up some diapers ... you know, the basics. Plus, I'll be spending some of that time taking care of myself. I have lunch with friends, yoga, acupuncture, a pedicure, and hopefully a massage on my agenda.
How about some stats:
How far along?: 33 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 23 pounds
Stretch marks?: Not yet, but we shall see. The last week I've felt like my skin is about to pop.
Sleep: Pretty good. I usually make it until about 5am before nature calls. Some nights I get up 2 or three times, but that is not the norm. Also, her movement doesn't wake me up in the night.
Best moment this week: After napping all day on Saturday Batman started to get wiggle crazy! I love feeling her squirming around in there and watching my belly wiggle. She is active enough these days that if a friend puts their hand on my belly they will get to feel her before too long.
Worst moment this week: The back pain! It was so bad yesterday I thought I was going to cry. Luckily, I found a way to lie so that B could rub my back to make it feel better.
Movement: All the time. So much more this week!
Belly button in or out?: Still in. B thinks it will pop, but I think it's too deep for that to happen. We will see.
What I miss: Sushi, Deli sandwiches, Beer, cold white wine when we are BBQing, being able to go up stairs/walk fast without being out of breath.
What I am looking forward to: Meeting our little Persson, my mom coming to town next weekend, the wonderful party my family and friends are planning to celebrate the arrival of our little Persson, starting maternity leave!
