How far along? 33 weeks
Baby’s size: around 17 inches long and about 4.25 pounds.
Total weight gain: 27 pounds
My jeans are AG Adriano Goldschmied
from A Pea in the Pod and my black
tank is from Free People
(non-maternity). I bought the wedges a couple of weeks ago when Nordstrom
was having a sale. They make me feel dressed up, they make my legs feel longer and slimmer (versus wearing flip flops like I usually do) and they are very comfy!
Workouts – Last week (June 1 – June 8)
- 3.6 miles on the elliptical
- 1 hour prenatal yoga
- 2 mile walk
- 3 miles on the elliptical
Symptoms: The braxton hicks contractions are getting more frequent. Not just in the evening but anytime of day. I had to rinse off in the shower and lay down for a while a couple of days ago because it seemed like they wouldn’t stop. You are also supposed to drink extra fluids. I already drink a ton of water so this frustrates me. The doctor wasn’t concerned and said I was doing all the right stuff. I’ve had zero heartburn in the last 2 weeks! Sleep is getting strange. I toss and turn a lot and sometimes have trouble falling back to sleep after I have woken up to go to the bathroom.
Movement: Baby is all up in my ribs. I think pregnancy has helped my posture, I notice that I sit up straighter and stand taller to make room for my growing baby. As soon as I slouch, try to bend forward while sitting or reach to grab something on the floor while sitting I either get a karate kick in the ribs or a overall tightening feeling that alerts me to give the baby more room.
33 week Dr visit: Baby is still measuring on time and had a heart rate in the 150’s. It was a pretty uneventful visit. I have another appointment in 2 weeks and then I start going every week. Eeeeeekkkkkk!!!
What I’m eating: I’m not feeling “real food”. I’ve been wanting smoothies more and more. I made a new combo with almond milk, roasted almonds, prunes, honey, cinnamon and frozen banana that is delish and refreshing. I’ve been snacking on nectarines, cantaloupe and almonds. I had toasted O cereal with sliced banana and unsweetened coconut one night for dinner. I had an awesome salad when out for lunch one day of mixed greens, shredded carrots, pecans, dried cranberries, sliced strawberries, apples and a scoop of chicken salad with a lemon vinaigrette. It was right up my alley! I also made a taco salad for lunch another day. I guess overall fruit and cold food is what I want over more savory foods.
Unsweetened iced tea with lemon. Orange Pineapple juice with lots of crushed ice. Cherry lime La Croix
sparkling water. Ice water. Nepresso
decaf coffee in the morning.
