33 Weeks

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

My baby bump at 33 weeks from the side:

And from the front:

Total Weight Gain: I am up a total of 10 lbs. (I gained about 1 lb this week.)

Movement:  Cullen's movements have been about the same for the past couple of weeks.  He moves all the time!

Boy or Girl? Boy!!!

Food Cravings: Nothing at all.  Everything is yummy!

How I'm Feeling: Great other than this cold I have been fighting for about a week.  Being sick while pregnant is absolutely no fun...there's not much I can take to feel better.  Needless to say, not much baby prep got done this weekend.  I have a lot of catching up to do.  I am starting to feel better though, so now I only have to deal with the typical aches and pains of being pregnant. :)

Size of Baby: Honeydew (19 in, 4.5 lbs) 

Baby's Development:  At this stage, baby could have grown a full inch or more this week alone.  Weight gain can range from a third more growth to full doubling before his big debut.  If we could see inside, we'd see our baby acting more like a baby, with his eyes closing during sleep and opening while awake.  And more light is penetrating the womb, helping baby differentiate between day and night.  And baby has reached an important milestone now: the development of his own immune system that will be able to provide protection from mild infections.

Best Part of this Week: Saturday was my birthday!  Corey and I had maternity pictures taken, which was so much fun.  I can't wait to see them!  Then we had dinner at my parents' house.  My mom always makes the best birthday dinners! 

What I'm Looking Forward To: We had our Childbirth Preparation class at the hospital last night.  I am looking forward to the second part of the class next Wednesday.  All of this preparation makes me feel like we are really getting close to meeting our little boy!
