33 Week Pregnant With Boo # 2


  • Heartburn, insomnia and aching Oh My! 33 weeks, clearly I'm uncomfortable
  • My feet were swollen this week for the first time- I think more because I've been on my feet and going so much more than I should be. C'est la vie. I try to sit and rest as much as possible... but kind of not possible some days.
  • B is the size of a durian this week.... I had to look up what the heck that was, because I had never heard of it. In case you're as uneducated as I am, here's what it looks like:

    Oh, and that means that B is about 17.2-18.7 inches long this week and 4.2-5.8 pounds... which I'm really hoping he's on the lower end of both. Fynn was born at 38 weeks at 19 1/4 inches and 6 pounds 2 ounces... which was plenty. I'm not holding on to any illusions that this kid will be as petite as his sister... but I'm really hoping not to have to give birth to a 10 pound behemoth. No really. 
  •  The compliments have continued this week, making me more convinced that I actually look like crap.
  • More Braxton-hicks this week. Sometimes they take my breath away with how tight my belly comes and how quickly they come on... I had forgotten how intense they could be. 
  • Bending over, at all, these days absolutely takes my breath away. I guess there's not room when I hunch over for both my lungs and this kid... and my body has prioritized his need for space. Putting on socks and/or shoes now feels like running a marathon and I end up red faced, sweaty, and out of breath after that battle. Some days Fynn is kind enough to help me put my socks on... but then I spend the day in upside-down socks and it's not quite worth it.
