How far along? 33 Weeks
Baby is the size of a: small pineapple
Total weight gain: 10 lbs
Baby Development: DG is working on hardening her bones to help support her in the outside world! She is keeping her eyes open during her wake time in there and practicing looking around her! Other than that, she’s just getting fatter and fatter!
Movement: Movement this week is BIG. I feel her super low and she gets the hiccups twice a day at least! She reacts to my voice when I sing WJ to sleep and it’s the most beautiful feeling. She dances when I drink something cold and doesn’t wake up until about 11 am!
Food cravings: I’m still majorly craving drinks with bubbles.
Miss Anything? I miss being able to do dishes without having to turn sideways haha. The belly is reeeeeeeally starting to hinder my everyday activities. I also miss being able to reach above the stove without turning the oven on!
Symptoms: I’m now peeing ever 30 minutes, she is SO low! I’ve got the pregnant waddle down to an art and it takes me a good minute to get off the couch. Heartburn is bad at night so, I’m sleeping propped up. I’m having Braxton Hicks contractions everyday now and it makes me nervous that labor might be closer than I think.
Mood? NESTING. My sister is coming in town next week and I’m so busy prepping for her to be her and for WJ’s first birthday party! I constantly want to be cleaning and tidying the house. I’m also super emotional. Everything that Winifred does makes me cry in the happiest of ways.
Winifred Update: She is growing LEAPS AND BOUNDS every single day. She is loving animals and is obsessed with her farm animal books. She’s mastered the duck, cow, dog, sheep sound! When she hears the dogs outside, she tries to bark back! Winnie has also started copying everything we do! She copies our motions and our tones when we talk to one another. She especially loves to copy our laughs and it makes me MELT. She is getting so brave and is standing on her own! She can get up by herself and stand for about 5 seconds independently. She gets so proud after she falls and it makes me happy to see her proud of herself. She is scooting around furniture and exploring all over the house. She got really brave and stepped away from the coffee table, slipped and gave her self a nasty bruise on her cheek. Mom guilt extreme. We got her a baby doll and she is obsessed. She pats it on the back and tries to share her Paci with it! I can’t wait to see her be a big sister.
